Algae Oil Market Overview

The Global Algae Oil Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Algae are tiny microscopic protists generally found in aquatic habitats such as lakes, oceans, rivers, ponds, and snow. Algae oil is a certain kind of oil extracted and refined from aquatic algae. The algae offering algal oil can be found in fresh, marine, and brackish water. These algae oils are the potential source of omega 3 fatty acids and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Out of algae's mentioned habitat, marine algae is extracted the most for the synthesis of algal oil followed by refinement and then directly ready to use.

The DHA present in algae oil accounts for nearly 97% of omega 3 in the human brain, cerebral cortex, and retina. The product is majorly added to food items, supplements, and beverages. Algae oil is also in great popularity due to its low saturated fat content. The oil focuses on offering various nutritional and health benefits such as reducing cholesterol and improving eyesight and memory.

However, to achieve the best results from the algae, specific parameters are required for the Protista's growth, such as specific temperature & humidity conditions coupled with ambient pH and other external parameters for product cultivation and harvesting. It turned out to be a manner of concern for the market growth of the product.

Algae Oil Market Dynamics and Trends

The global algae oil market is driven by associated health benefits with the algal oil involving high protein, antioxidants, and phycocyanin excellent percentage of DHA and omega 3 boosted the demand of the product in food & beverages industries. The increasing shift of the population towards sustainable energy sources has uplifted algae oil's market to produce biofuel, offering a low carbon footprint at a much cheaper cost. Algae oil is gaining popularity in the animal feed sector as it provides high nutritional value compared to grain feed.

Associated health benefits with the algal oil involving high protein, antioxidants, and phycocyanin coupled with the excellent percentage of DHA and omega 3 boosted the demand for the product in the food & beverages industries

The algae oil market is majorly driven by growing demand in the food & beverage and dietary supplements industry due to its increasing use as omega 3 fatty acid, protein, antioxidants, phycocyanin, and others. The improving popularity of natural products in the dietary supplements industry has accelerated the need for health supplements sourced from plants and is expected to show the forecast period trajectorial growth.

Algae oil becomes the preferred choice in the food industry as a speciality oil due to its low saturated and trans fats content, making it a healthy option for the consumer. For instance, in June 2019, ADM came up with a new line of Onavita Algal DHA and Almega EPA blend available via collaboration with Qualitas Health, a leading algae cultivation organization. ADM is providing three different blends of EPA/DHA containing omega-3, 6, and 9. The product benefits consumers suffering from heart, immune system, eye health, and conjecture disorder.

The increasing shift of the population towards sustainable energy sources has uplifted the market of algae oil for biofuel production, offering a low carbon footprint at a much cheaper cost

Growing government concerns and stringent regulatory norms towards adopting eco-friendly and sustainable products are more likely to boost the market of algae oil in the energy sector, where it is used to produce biofuel. Currently, biofuel is estimated to be the largest application segment for algae oil and is projected to gain a significant market share on account of its growing use as a sustainable fule in the forecast period.

Biofuel is an alternative renewable fuel in blending biodiesel, jet fuel, gasoline, and others. Biofuel is used in recent times for its low carbon footprint, and hence consumption of algae oil is increasing concerning its contribution to manufacturing biofuel. Environmental-friendliness and low-sulfur emitting fuel production methods add value to biofuel's growth and demand, directly triggering the algae fuel market in the forthcoming period.

For instance, companies like Algenol, Sapphirine Energy, and Solazyme raised hundreds of millions of dollars since the last decade in private sector investment to produce tens of millions of gallons of decent matter years at a competitive price with fossil fuel.

Increasing investment by economically stable countries with the growing competition with fossil fuel coupled with high production cost and required ambient conditions is the biggest challenge hampering algae oil growth in recent times

The advantage of algae oil is growing with growing advancements in technology, and the market is expected to show the highest in coming years. However, the growth of algae oil comes with a large set of disappointments that hamper the product's global development in recent times. Despite spending large amounts by the economically stable countries in the developing conversion process and achieving its ambitious goals, as compared to fossil fuel, the output in terms of revenue is turned to show a significant downfall compared to the companies' investments.

In terms of cost, oil prices declined between 2008 to 2014; however, it didn't help the biofuel competitors due to low market value. Thus growing market of competitors has severely impacted the growth of the algae oil market in recent times. Also, specific conditions required for the development of algae are another factor challenging the market's growth. High production costs and considerable area required for its production may restrain the forecast period's algae oil market. 

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Algae Oil Market

The global algae oil market has shown a slight decline due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as several manufacturing plants were shut for months. Further several countries have restricted production activities during the covid-19 pandemic. The major lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak leads to suddenly dropping down consumers' interest towards purchasing any goods, and halt in transportation sectors has severely hampered the business of the algae oil market due to disruption in the product's supply chain management. The majority of businesses are shut down, and operations across several end-users of algae oil market products are also compromised, thus dropping its global demand in 2020.
