Tuna and Algae Omega-3 Ingredient Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2023 - 2028)

The tuna and algae omega-3 ingredient market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.03% in the next five years.

The perceived health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, for which fish oil is the primary extraction source, drives the demand for tuna omega-3 ingredients. The tuna fish oil omega-3 market has witnessed emerging global raw material hotspots in China, Japan, Spain, and Italy. There has been a surge in the aquaculture sector around the world, and this boost is expected to provide further impetus to the overall growth of the fish oil omega-3 industry. According to the Marine Stewardship Council, the quantity of MSC-certified catch and the number of MSC-certified tuna fisheries continued to increase in 2021 and 2022. Nineteen tuna fisheries received MSC accreditation at the beginning of September 2022, bringing the total to 91.

This resulted in a 24% rise in the amount of MSC-certified tuna catch, from 1,982,000 tonnes in September 2021 to 2,460,000 in September 2022. Nearly 50% of the commercial tuna catch worldwide has MSC certification, boosting the market further. Algae omega-3 ingredients play a key role in driving the overall market growth due to the growing demand for algae omega-3 in infant food fortification, as it provides benefits similar to fish oil and has no off-odor or taste. Additionally, the surge in demand for fortified foods among various age groups across the globe is driving the tuna and omega-3 ingredients market.
