Published Date: Jun, 2021

The global omega-3 market is anticipated to grow at a significant rate i.e., at a CAGR of 10.1%, and to reach USD 9.3 billion during the forecast period 2021-2027. Innovative product portfolios, growing awareness among the consumers about the health and nutritional benefits, favorable regulatory environment, increase consumer demand for plant-based products, and creating awareness regarding the usage of omega-3 products owing to mounting cases of chronic diseases are the major opportunities for the growth of the omega-3 market.

The COVID-19 crisis has caused disruptions in the production industries due to a shortage of resources all over the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many opportunities for manufacturers of health-oriented products, i.e., dietary supplements as it helps in maintaining immunity and fights with the deadly virus. This in turn propels the demand for associated markets, including omega-3 products.

Key players in the omega-3 market are catering to the demand by investing in technologically advanced products in their product portfolio across the globe. In May 2019, KD Pharma acquired a manufacturing site in the UK to expand its capacity for manufacturing omega-3 supplements.

Many researchers have studied the effect of omega-3 in baby food. Infant formula is prepared from skimmed cows’ milk. Consumption of DHA-enriched formula helps brain development throughout the pregnancy. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has accepted that omega-3 fats i.e., DHA and ALA, can help the eye and mental development of babies. Most of the infant formulas are DHA-fortified and provide solutions for premature babies and young infants.
