February 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global krill oil market size is projected to be valued at USD 664.6 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 11.6%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing consumer health awareness, coupled with rising investment in clinical research and development is expected to promote market growth over the forecast.

Health benefits offered by consumption of krill oil to reduce cholesterol level, blood pressure, and coronary heart diseases such as heart attacks and strokes are expected to drive demand in the forecast period. In addition, increasing demand for supplements and functional foods by consumers owing to growing health concerns coupled with high disposable income is further anticipated to propel market expansion over the forecast period.

Increasing spending on the pharmaceutical sector in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are expected to stimulate industry expansion. The rising population in developing countries is further expected to fuel the demand for omega 3 products in applications such as nutrition supplements and infant formula. Moreover, the changing lifestyles of consumers and increasing concerns regarding health issues, especially coronary heart diseases, are expected to further fuel the demand for omega 3 products thereby benefitting market growth over the forecast period.

Companies are focusing on backward integration in order to gain more control over the value chain. The krill fishery is highly regulated owing to which the number of manufacturers is limited which can restrict the growth in the forecast period.

The market in Europe is expected to be valued at USD 223.8 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10.1% over the forecast period. The presence of major krill oil manufacturers and prominent coastlines in the region is driving the demand for krill oil-based products. Moreover, growing health awareness in Europe is anticipated to augment the demand for supplements and functional food, pharmaceutical, and infant formula application segments.
