Global algae products market is expected to USD 5,383.9 Million by 2025 at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period from 2018-2025. Rising demand for natural products and proactive efforts by market players to formulate algae-based consumable products, rise in global population and rising demand for food and customization of the functional food product are some factors affecting the demand of the market.

Market Overview:

Algae are defined as photosynthetic, oxygen-exhaling, unicellular, or multicellular microorganisms with varied properties such as consumption of carbon-dioxide, storage of essential nutrients, minerals, and vitamins in microorganisms. Algae compose organic food molecules from carbon dioxide and water with the help of photosynthesis. They are used in a large number of industries to commercially produce useful end products such as food pharmaceuticals and medicines, animal feed, fertilizer and as fuel. For instance, in Oct 2018, Texas-based companies and universities worked with the Algae Biomass Organization to bring the 2018 Algae Biomass Summit, an annual conference of investors, scientists and entrepreneurs to The Woodlands, October 14-17. It was the first time in its 12-year history that the largest algae conference in the world was held in Texas.
