Market Definition

Krill oil is a type of oil extracted from krill, which are tiny shrimp-like marine crustaceans. They are small, floating crustaceans found mostly in the Antarctic & North Pacific oceans. They are a primary source of food for many marine animals, including whales, seals, penguins, and fish. This oil is marketed as a dietary supplement & comes in capsule form. It is marketed as an alternative to fish oil supplements, with potentially improved absorption due to the phospholipid form of omega-3s found in it.

Krill oil is known for offering diverse health benefits, including cholesterol level reduction, inflammation reduction in injured areas, blood platelet creation, enhanced immunity, improved gut functioning, and metabolic activity improvement. It also contributes to reducing fat deposits in the body. Furthermore, the rising demand for high-quality nutrition and protein-rich foods, increased awareness of the health benefits of krill oil, changing lifestyles, the expanding feed industry in developing economies, and consumer preferences for omega-3-rich products are some of the major aspects pushing market growth.

Additionally, supplemented R&D investments, rising applications in infant formula, and a growing aging population confronted with chronic diseases such as cancer & cardiovascular disease also aid in assisting the industry's expansion. Besides, the unwillingness of some people to use fish-based products such as fish oil, combined with a preference for healthy food supplements, contributes to the market's growth.

Further, the global population's rising avoidance of fish consumption, particularly in regions like Europe, where people may lack essential fatty acids like Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is a significant driving factor. Also, the usage of krill oil in the sports nutrition sector is a noteworthy aspect pushing the Krill Oil Market growth in the coming years.


Global Krill Oil Market Research Report: Forecast (2024-2030)

Global Krill Oil Market Driver:

Consumers' Increasing Demand for Dietary Supplements to Promote Market Growth – In recent times, shifts in lifestyles & dietary preferences have led to a global shortage in meeting recommended nutrition levels. As a result, consumers are increasingly turning to supplements to address this nutritional gap. Krill oil, containing essential omega-3 fatty acids, has gained popularity among individuals adopting healthy lifestyle practices.

Also regarded as a health-conscious choice due to its high protein content and nutritional value, krill oil is available in various forms, including capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids. The growing health awareness among the public has sparked heightened interest in dietary supplements for overall well-being. Hence, this surge in appeal is propelling the demand for krill oil supplements, thereby driving the Krill Oil Market.

Global Krill Oil Market Challenge:

High Production & Procurement Cost Compared to Other Oils to Impede the Growth – Krill oil can be derived from both fresh krill and dried krill biomasses. However, fresh krill contains significant levels of proteolytic enzymes, leading to rapid autolysis of the crustacean. Consequently, immediate processing of krill is essential post-capture. The extraction of krill oil involves various methods, such as solvent, non-solvent, SCFE (Supercritical Fluid Extraction), and enzyme-assisted extraction procedures. This results in a higher manufacturing cost compared to conventional oils in the market. Therefore, the elevated production cost becomes a limiting factor for the Krill Oil Market expansion.

Global Krill Oil Markett Trend:

Expanding Applications of Krill Oil in Numerous Sectors to Promote Market Growth – The increasing variety of krill oil applications across various sectors can be attributed significantly to the market's upward trajectory. Krill oil consumption is expected to rise in the pharmaceutical and functional food and beverage industries. The market is poised to benefit from rising demand for sports supplements, as well as increased awareness about gastrointestinal health.

Moreover, the market is expected to capitalize on the expanding pet ownership tendency and the increasing spending power of pet owners. These owners are progressively willing to invest in pet food containing krill oil. Consequently, the utilization of krill oil in the pharmaceutical, supplement, food, and other sectors for diverse purposes is emerging as a key trend within the market.
