Growth Factors

A sedentary lifestyle has resulted in a rising number of chronic diseases, which is expected to propel the product demand.

By Source Analysis

Fish oil-based supplements led the market and accounted for more than 64.1% share of the global revenue in 2020.

Increasing environmental, metal, & hazardous pollutants in fish are making them toxic for utilization, which is expected to restrain the growth of the segment.

increasing regulations on fishing activities to protect the fish species are expected to affect the raw material supply for the industry. The rising consumer inclination towards plant-based alternatives is expected to drive the demand for algae oil-based supplements.
