REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
This BCC Research study is presented to increase the awareness of the applications of chitin and chitosan derivatives. Chitin is the second largest biopolymer after cellulose with a wide range of applications. Chitin is a natural polymer derived from marine crustaceans, shrimps, crabs and other non-animal sources. It is produced through waste products from the seafood processing industry. Recently the demand for chitin and chitosan has increased due to its easy availability and easy production process. Properties such as its nontoxicity, biocompatibility and biodegradability make it ideal for making healthcare products sutures, implants and artificial organs.

It can stimulate defensive mechanism properties in plants, making it ideal for crop protection. Chitin and chitosan derivatives are natural polymers and provide an ecofriendly solution to variety of applications such as water treatment, biomedical, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers and pesticides. Chitin and chitosan derivatives are used in dietary supplements because of their various health benefits. The report analyzes and classifies products and applications of chitin and chitosan derivatives. The report intends to explain the key trends in the industry. It discusses the industries that are using the products and studies the motivating and restraining factors. The report will be a key decision-making tool for the intended audience.


INTENDED AUDIENCE
The report focuses on the use of chitin and chitosan derivatives in industries such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, personal care products, water treatment and seafood processing. Chitin is produced from waste material from the seafood processing industry, therefore, it helps in waste management too. Chitin and chitosan are environmentally friendly products and increased consumption could help reduce environmental toxins as they are substitutes for the harmful chemicals that are used in water treatment, fertilizers and pesticides. There are vast natural sources of the raw material used to produce chitin and chitosan and only a fraction of that raw material is converted to chitin and chitosan. A number of companies and organizations are performing research and development to increase the utilization of this raw material. The report provides useful information to the industries listed above as well as companies that want to enter the market. As the report also covers the major geographic markets in detail, companies interested in expanding their geographic reach will also find the report useful.
