Omega-3 fatty acids are fats commonly found in marine and plant oils. They are considered essential, meaning they cannot be synthesized by the human body, and are vital for normal metabolism. Omega-3 has benefits in terms of cardiovascular disease, inflammation, developmental disorders, psychiatric disorders and cognitive aging. The health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily EPA and DHA, were discovered in the 1970s by researchers studying the Greenland Inuit Tribe, who consumed large amounts of fat from fish, but displayed virtually no cardiovascular disease.

The most widely available marine sources of EPA and DHA are cold water, oily fish, krill and algae. Plant sources of Omega-3 include flaxseed and chia seed.

Although Omega-3 fatty acids have been known as essential to normal growth and health since the 1930s, awareness of their health benefits has dramatically increased since the 1990s. Today, Omega-3 products are a multi-billion dollar industry that is growing more than 15% annually.

Despite its size and growth rate, little has been published about the Omega-3 industry, production and demand for these products, and the companies producing them.
This report looks in detail at these issues. Specifically, it provides:

• An overview of Omega-3, its health effects-especially on cardiovascular disease, mechanism of action, marine and plant sources, production technology, daily values and growth in awareness.
• Analysis of global marine and plant Omega-3 production volume and value by type, region and applications during the 2013-2018 period, exports, price trends and the competitive environment.
• Trends in the nutraceuticals industry, which Omega-3 products are part of, in terms of size, growth drivers, market dynamics, IPO and M&A activity, market attractiveness and outlook.
• A closer look at the cardiovascular, Omega-3 pharmaceutical market in terms of currently available treatment options, existing Omega-3 drug offerings, market size and outlook, new Omega-3 drug opportunities, competitive environment and new entrants.

Additionally, profiles of 183 public and private companies involved in the Omega-3 industry as producers, distributors and retailers are given. The report also includes 31 tables and 9 figures.
