Global Chlorella Market (2021 to 2028) - by Technology, Product Type, Source, Application and Geography

Dublin, Sept. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Chlorella Market by Technology, by Product Type by Source by Application, Geography - Global Forecast to 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The chlorella market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2021 to 2028 to reach $412.3 million by 2028.

The growing inclination of consumers toward a protein-rich diet, increasing health & wellness trend, development of chlorella F&B products, growing nutraceutical industry, and growing vegetarianism are some of the major drivers for the growth of this market. Moreover, the emergence of a new product: chlorella extract, provides significant opportunities for the growth of the market. However, the risk of contamination, high production cost, and complex production of algae products is expected to hinder the growth of the chlorella market.

The study offers a comprehensive analysis of the chlorella market with respect to technology, product type, source, application, and geography. The chlorella market is mainly segmented by technology (autotrophic and heterotrophic), product type (powder, tablets, extracts, and capsules), source (chlorella vulgaris, chlorella pyrenoidosa or sorokiniana, and others), application (nutraceuticals, food & beverages, animal feed, cosmetics, and others), and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at a country level.

Based on technology, the autotrophic segment is expected to command the dominant share of the overall chlorella market in 2021. The easy construction & management of open ponds, low cost for biomass production, and exposure of the culture to sunlight are the drivers for this market. Besides, chlorella production in open ponds by major chlorella-producing countries, such as Germany, Japan, China, the Czech Republic, and Taiwan is expected to boost its production.

Based on product type, the extracts segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as the growing demand for chlorella from the functional food and supplement manufacturer and high water-based nutrients such as essential amino acids, vitamin A, B vitamins, iron, calcium, chlorophyll, lutein, and zeaxanthin are driving the growth of this segment.

Based on the source, the chlorella vulgaris segment is expected to command a large share of the overall chlorella market in 2021. This market's large share is mainly attributed to the growing demand for novel and natural flavored plant-based protein-rich ingredients and growing application in the biofuel industry.

Based on application, the nutraceutical segment is expected to command the largest share and fast growth of the overall chlorella market in 2021. The large share of this segment is primarily attributed to the growing interest among customers in healthy or nutrition-rich food and the properties and advantages of chlorella as an ideal health product that integrates metabolism, balances the body, and regulates immune effects.

Geographically, Europe is expected to command the major share of the overall chlorella market in 2021. The leading position of Europe in the chlorella market is primarily attributed to the rising demand for chlorella in lotions, moisturizers, powders, and other personal care items; scientific and technological development in the field of micro-algae research for various health foods and dietary supplements; and growing awareness among consumers for natural food products.
