DUBLIN, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Chitosan Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Grade; Application; Source" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global chitosan market was valued at US$ 1,764.3 million in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ 4,698.7 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2019 to 2027.
Chitosan is a natural fibrous material derived from chitin. Chitin is a substance that is produced in the outer shell of shellfish such as lobsters, crabs, and shrimps. Shrimps are considered to be a major source of chitosan as they contain about 25% to 40% of chitin content. Besides shell fish and crustaceans, certain varieties of fungi have also been known to produce low amounts of chitin in their cell walls. However, the lack of an optimal procedure for extraction of chitin on a commercial scale from fungi makes it a less used source for obtaining chitosan.
Chitosan is a rich fiber source and is increasingly incorporated into dietary supplements for promoting weight loss. It is a fibrous material which blocks the absorption of cholesterol and dietary fats and hence is used in medicines to cure diseases such as high cholesterol, obesity, and crohn's disease. Chitosan is also directly applied on the gums to alleviate inflammation of the gums.
Geographically, the global chitosan market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific holds the largest share in the global chitosan market, which is followed by North America and Europe. Japan is dominating the chitosan market in APAC region, followed by China and the South Korea. The chitosan market in Japan is estimated to be the largest. The demand for chitosan in Japan is expected to rise due to growing investment in research and development by manufacturers along with the growing number of applications such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and others. Additionally, robust growth in product offerings is impacting the market growth in this country.
