Key takeaways from the report

What are the key algae nutraceutical products?
  • - Algae, ranging from single-celled microalgae to large seaweeds, are the simplest and most abundant form of plant life.
  • - A range of products can be obtained from algae - nutraceuticals, cosmetics and specialty chemicals are some of the most prominent categories.
  • - Microalgae are predominantly used for the production of nutraceuticals and other dietary supplements.
  • - Spirulina and Chlorella are the widely used algal sources for the production of Single Cell Protein (SCP)
How to cultivate and process algae nutraceuticals?
  • - Algae cultivation includes three major processes - cultivation, dewatering/harvesting and drying.
  • - Algae cultivation can be done both phototrophically and heterotrophically. Phototrophic cultivation is of two types - open pond and photobioreactor.
  • - There are a number of Harvesting/dewatering techniques - some of the more well-known ones are centrifugation, sedimentation, flocculation, flotation and filtration, of which, centrifugation is the most commonly used harvesting technique for algal strains grown for high value products.
What is the current market status of algae nutraceuticals?
  • - The global nutraceuticals market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% between 2015 and 2021. The robust healthcare development demonstrated across emerging economies of the region and increasing disposable income of people will accelerate the nutraceuticals market in Asia Pacific.
  • - Beta-carotene is a leading carotenoid globally, accounting for $375 million in 2016, with natural β -carotene (from algae) estimated at about 35 % of the market. The growth in the total market is about 5% CAGR, and thus the market is expected to reach a size of about $460 million by 2020.
What are the current and emerging applications for algae nutraceuticals?
  • - Algae nutraceutical products have many proven health benefits. Apart from nutritional supplement, they are also used in other industries like agriculture, pharmaceuticals, colorants and additives industries.
  • - Natural astaxanthin is a dietary supplement with extremely powerful antioxidant benefits for human applications. It traps more free radicals than any other antioxidant.
  • - Many end uses for algae nutraceuticals have emerged in recent years. For instance, in Jan 2017, Holland and Barrett, a health food shop launched the UK' s first algae based vegan eggs.
