-In 2012, total market revenue was € million; it is expected to reach € million in 2023, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of %.
-The European and US omega-3 and omega-6 PUFA ingredients market is more advanced, and specific segments have reached maturity. Although the global market is growing at a fast rate, each segment has its own unique characteristics.
-The global market is fragmented with a number of participants active in each segment.

Market Overview - Introduction
The omega-3 and omega-6 PUFA ingredients market has a multilayered industry structure. The structure starts with the raw material supplier. The actual competition begins at the next level: the oil extractor or the PUFA ingredient supplier. At this stage, the PUFA oil may be further refined depending on the specific needs of the manufacturer. PUFA ingredients are then traded through distributors or regional offices to supplement, food, or beverage manufacturers. Finally, they reach the consumer in PUFA-enriched products. The market is continually facing competition from other nutritional ingredients; however, the wide range of health benefits offered by PUFA ingredients is unmatched. The challenge is to sustain popularity and consumer interest in omega-3 fatty acids.

Globally, the incidence of chronic degenerative diseases (CDD) has increased. In the United States especially, the number of people suffering from or more of these chronic disorders is rising, and cardiovascular diseases are often the cause of death. The attention of the media, as well as the scientific community, has shifted to food ingredients that have the potential to fight CDDs.

The PUFA market is exemplary of a science- and research-driven market. Specifically, omega-3 fatty acids are among the most extensively researched ingredients in the food and beverage industry. Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is the only essential fatty acid (EFA), and the parent molecule of the other long-chain omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). “Essential” denotes the molecule’s inability to be produced in the human body, so it must be acquired through diet. The main sources of omega-3 PUFAs are cold-water fish, algae, and flaxseeds. Flaxseed is a vegetarian source of the short chain omega-3 ALA, whereas marine sources are rich in EPA and DHA. The consumption of fish has decreased in the American diet; omega-3 fatty acid deficiency has become common. EPA and DHA have important roles to play in the promotion of health.
