Global Spirulina Market (2021-2026) by Type, Application, Formulation and Geography, IGR Competitive Analysis, Impact of Covid-19, Ansoff Analysis


The Global Spirulina Market is estimated to be USD 335.2 Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 466.85 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.85%.

Market Dynamics

Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and saltwater. It is a type of cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes that are often referred to as blue-green algae. Just like plants, cyanobacteria can produce energy from sunlight via a process called photosynthesis. Factors such as the increase in demand for natural ingredients and cyanobacteria for weight reduction and personal care, promotion of spirulina production by the government, and R&D of spirulina as commercial products are drivers for the market. The impact on spirulina production due to climate change and the risk of side effects is a restraint to the market.
Untapped markets in developing countries, easy to cultivate due to development in cultivation technology, and the importance of spirulina in cancer treatment are opportunities for market growth. Complex production of algae products, and the high cost of spirulina act as a challenge to it.
