Summary

Table of Contents

Pharmaceutical drugs, by default, have started incorporating higher concentrations of omega-3 and it is anticipated that, over the coming few years, several new companies would be jumping on to the bandwagon of omega-3 drugs. Several drugs are in Phase II or Phase III clinical trials, with several more expected to come on-stream quite soon. However, the coming year or two is likely to witness an influx of new companies invading the global omega-3 market, provided they obtain the USFDA’s or other relevant authorities’ approvals.

In a global scenario where increasing attention is being directed towards issues of sustainability and limited food supplies, algal sources offer immense scope for the rapidly expanding omega-3 market to continue in the same vein. The focus on obtaining EPA and DHA from algae was prompted by an endeavor to seek out more sustainable sources, since EPA and DHA are naturally contained in algae. Moreover, the omega-3 content in fish and krill originates from their consuming the algae directly or other creatures that feed on algae. In addition to being sustainable, algae also allows for farming that can be of help in putting up desirable labels, such as “vegetarian,” “kosher” or even “organic.”

The past several decades have been witness to research studies that have underscored the significance of omega-3 fatty acids in maintaining heart health, in addition to safeguarding against cancer and birth defects and offsetting symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, cognitive decline, depression and several other conditions. Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) have been growing and continues to grow significantly in the future, attributed to the above benefits.
