Global Microalgae Market to Reach US$1.3 Billion by the Year 2026

Microalgae, also known as microphytes, are minute algae that cannot be seen with the human eye. Microalgae are phytoplankton that lives in both the sediment and the water column and can be found in both freshwater and marine systems. Microalgae are fast emerging as the next-in-line resources that show promising potential for resolving the most urgent needs of the agricultural and industrial sectors. Microalgae can help answer the need for new and safe antioxidants that can be extracted from natural sources (plant materials) and prevent oxidative food deterioration and also lower oxidative harm to living cells. Since microalgae can generate biomass quite rapidly, they can be used for producing high-value products such as human health and nutrition products, animal feed, aquaculture, pharmaceuticals, transport fuels and industrial chemicals. Further, there is also no risk of microalgae-based products containing pesticides, herbicides or other toxic substances, due to the possibility of controlling the qualities of microalgal cells with the use of clean nutrient media when growing microalgae. Microalgae offers promising potential for biofuel-based mobility, decreasing reliance on fast exhausting natural resources for fuel generation. As already demonstrated by researchers, biofuel can be produced by using lipids extracted from freshly grown microalgae by removing maximum water content. The most recent technological advancements in areas including algal cultivation and harvesting, synthetic biology, phenotyping (high-throughput phenomics), and IoT-enabled automation can help augment the industrial potential and enhance the productivity of microalgae.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Microalgae estimated at US$939.4 Million in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$1.3 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% over the analysis period.
