Chitosan Market Dynamics:

Unique Properties driving Product Demand: Chitosan is used in various applications such as water treatment, food & beverages, agrochemicals, medical & pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Chitosan can adsorb metals, toxic substances, iron, and other impurities from wastewater because of its adsorption properties. Chitosan is an economical, effective, and environmentally friendly way to treat water. Its bioactivity, antimicrobial properties, and anti-oxidative properties make it useful for medicinal and pharmaceutical applications, including wound ointments and medical device coatings. Food and beverages use as dietary supplements, preservatives, and cholesterol-lowering additives. Pharmaceutically, it is used in contact lenses and drug delivery agents, and cosmetically, it is used in skincare, oral care, and hair care products. High Cost and Wastage: Chitosan is predicted to suffer from limitations associated with shrimp farming regulations, as well as lots of waste generated by shrimp peeling units and shellfish processing plants that are forecasted to slow down its market growth. Chitosan's high production cost is forecasted to limit its market growth, and the process of producing it is also lengthy and complex due to its various stages, which will further restrain its growth. Demand in Agricultural Sector: As chitosan's antifungal properties increase its use in fertilizers and the controlled release of agriculture chemicals, new market opportunities are expected to develop during the forecast period. A simple chemical procedure may be able to create cheap nutrients through the use of fungi waste in agriculture to create profitable chitosan market opportunities. It is further anticipated that increased research and development in the field of chitosan nanoparticles for its growing use in novel applications will also contribute to the market growth of chitosan during the forecast period. Impact of COVID-19: Chitosan market demand increased during COVID-19 due to the high demand for medicines and the rapidly increasing pharmaceutical industry, and it is forecasted that it will boost the demand in the forecasted period. Chitosan Market Trends: A major trend is an increase in manufacturers' investment in safe and cost-effective production technology. Over the forecast period, the market growth is further expected to be bolstered by the increasing focus on developing a wide range of chitosan products and the establishment of new plants near coastal areas by manufacturers.

Chitosan Market Segment Analysis:

Based on the Source, the Chitosan Market has been segmented into Shrimp, Crab, Squid, Krill, and Others. The Shrimp Chitosan segment has the highest revenue share. It is a biodegradable, biocompatible, and eco-friendly polyelectrolyte. It contains 25%-4-% chitin. It can be used in a variety of applications such as chromatography, water treatment, cosmetics additives, and textile antimicrobial treatment. Shrimps are easily available by which the manufacturing cost of chitosan is reduced, it can enhance the accessibility and it will boost the market growth. It is also used as a biomedical device for the controlled release of drugs in microcapsule implants.Chitosan Market Based on Application, the Chitosan Market is segmented into Water Treatment, Food & Beverages, Cosmetics, Medical & Pharmaceuticals, Agrochemicals and Others. Water Treatment is the largest application segment. It is the process of purifying wastewater and it has an excellent performance in removing pesticides, surfactants, phenol, and polychlorinated biphenyls. Due to its high percentage compared to conventional methods such as filtration, it is the preferred choice for water treatment plants around the world. The Cosmetic industry has been strong growth due to rising consumer spending in emerging economies. It can be used to manufacture oral, hair, and anti-aging creams. It provides an elastic film in the hair that forms an elastic layer which gives softness and strength to hair fibers. Due to its anti-plaque and anti-decay properties, this ingredient also finds application in mouthwashes, toothpastes, and chewing gums. The increasing demand for organic ingredients in cosmetic products will drive the chitosan market growth during the forecast period. Due to the critical role chitosan plays in adding shelf life and quality to agricultural, poultry, and marine foods, the food & beverages segment is expected to witness steady growth.
