Global Algae Products Market (2021-2026)

DUBLIN, 28 October 2021 / PRNewswire / –

The “Global market for algae products by type (lipids, carotenoids, carrageenan, alginate, algae protein), type of facility, form (liquid, solid), source (brown algae, green algae, red algae, blue-green algae) and region – Forecast until 2026 “ report was added to offer.

According to the publisher, the global market size for seaweed products is estimated at $ 4.7 billion in 2021 and should reach $ 6.4 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period.

Lipids are organic compounds rich in energy and insoluble in water. Certain amounts of lipids are essential for the proper functioning of the body. They help to absorb and use vitamins A, D, E and K in the human body. They are also important for internal signaling systems and are part of cell walls. Omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 are the different types of lipids.
