Alarming Increase in Carbon Emission Helps Algae Biomass Take Center Stage

As pointed out by a TMR analyst, there has been a tremendous rise of the world algae market in the recent years. Of late, the need to shift from fossil fuel resources to renewable energy sources has become prominent. This could be due to the worrying increase in carbon emission from scores of industries. As a result, demand for algae biomass is projected to increase at a telling rate since it is an important ingredient used to produce biofuel.

Vendors operating in the world algae market could expect lucrative growth opportunities birthing on the back of high focus on the use of renewable energy sources in both developing and developed countries. Furthermore, increasing demand for biofuel because of the implementation of tight emission standards and policies is forecasted to set the tone for valuable growth in the market.

Expensive Research for Advancement of Algae Production Techniques Dents Market

In the foreseeable future, growth of the international algae market is foretold to slow down due to the negative impact of reduction in crude oil prices. Another factor that could deter market growth is expensive capital investment required for research and development to develop advanced algae production techniques.

However, the international algae market is envisaged to gather pace in terms of growth as rising application of algae in wastewater treatment creates a wealth of opportunities in the near future. Furthermore, constant increase in industrial activities is prognosticated to augment the demand in the market. Use of algal biotechnology in carbon dioxide capture and utilization could act as another opportunity for market growth. Increasing efforts to commercialize biofuel production from algae could help raise more demand in the market.

Global Algae Market – Key Developments

  • In October 2019, Algatechnologies, subsidiary of Solabia Group, had announced that the company has tripled its production capacity for FucoVitalTM. The company’s Fucovital proprietary fucoxanthin oleoresin is the world’s first microalgae derived extract which is standardised to 3% fucoxanthin, plus naturally occurring omega-3’s (EPA) and other beneficial fatty acids. The company had taken this step due to increasing demand of the product from the dietary supplements market. Fucovital’s composition is derived from a unique strain of Phaeodactylum tricornutum microalgae. This type of microalgae is a naturally rich source of fucoxanthin and compounds such as omega-3’s (EPA) and other beneficial fatty acids.
