Carotenoids Market by Product (Astaxanthin, Capsanthin, Lutein, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, and Others), Source (Natural and Synthetic), and Application (Animal Feed, Human Food, Dietary Supplement, and Others) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2025
Carotenoids, also called as tetraterpenoids, are plant pigments composed of 40 carbon atoms per molecule. They can also be obtained from algae, bacteria, fungi, animal fat, or can be produced synthetically. Animals are generally incapable of synthesizing carotenoids and need a dietary intake of plant products to meet their daily requirements. In animal nutrition, colors come from the animal diet and are mostly linked with the presence of carotenoids. With the ongoing optimization of animal nutrition, they are included in the feed as a part of the nutrients, which support animal health and product quality. Owing to their large presence, carotenoids are some of the earliest studied phytochemicals, which have a wide range of functions from optical enhancement within the eye to immunomodulatory and antioxidant functions. Various health benefits associated with carotenoids has led to its increased applications, which includes animal feed, human food, dietary supplement, and others such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and aquaculture.
Carotenoids, as a preventive healthcare and nutraceuticals, have led to its higher consumption in human food and dietary supplement. They offers several health benefits, which include cancer prevention, anti-inflammatory, and immune system benefits and are sometimes associated with cardiovascular disease prevention. Carotenoids are powerful antioxidant substances, which play an essential role in the neutralization reaction of free radicals. Thus, the antioxidant properties of carotenoids increase their application in cosmetics. Moreover, increase in demand for natural colors in food processing, beverages, and cosmetic industry is anticipated to open new avenues for carotenoids manufacturers. However, stringent regulation on use of carotenoids in human food, threats of adulteration, and higher cost of naturally sourced carotenoids as compared to synthetic carotenoids are expected to hamper the market growth.
In 2017, Europe accounted for the highest market share and is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2025 owing to higher adoption of carotenoids in Indian and Indonesian food and beverage industry.
