The global commercial seaweed market is expected to grow from $14.94 billion in 2021 to $17.17 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.9%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, effecting many markets across the globe. The commercial seaweed market is expected to grow to $26.85 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 11.8%.

The commercial seaweed market consists of sales of commercial seaweed by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are used as food ingredients, agricultural fertilizers, animal feed additives, and pharmaceutical ingredients.Commercial seaweed refers to microalgae that grow in the sea.

It can be grown in both marine water and fresh water and can be used as a source of long- and short-chain chemicals.

The main types of commercial seaweed are liquid, powdered, and flakes.The liquid type of seaweed is used to provide nourishment for plants.

Plants benefit greatly from liquid seaweed as it contains hormones such as auxins, cytokinins, and gibberellins, as well as other vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that promote natural growth.These nutrients fuel the growth of plant cells, resulting in healthier, stronger, and more disease-resistant plants.

The various products include brown seaweed, red seaweed, and green seaweed that are used in food and beverages, agricultural products, animal feed additives, pharmaceuticals, and other end-users.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the commercial seaweed market in 2021. The regions covered in the commercial seaweed market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The increasing consumption of plant-based products will propel the growth of the commercial seaweed market going forward.Plant-based food refers to a finished product consisting of ingredients derived from plants that include vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Commercial seaweed is used in the manufacture of plant-based foods.These seaweeds help to increase protein content in plant-based products.

For instance, according to the Good Food Institute, a US-based non-profit organization that promotes plant- and cell-based alternatives to animal products, in 2020, dollar sales of plant-based food grew by 43%, which increased from $5.5 billion in 2019 to $7 billion in 2020. Therefore, increasing consumer consumption of plant-based products is driving the growth of the commercial seaweed market.

Technological advancement is a key trend gaining popularity in the commercial seaweed market.Major companies operating in the commercial seaweed sector are focused on developing technological innovations to sustain their position.

For instance, in May 2021, Panorama, a Germany-based organization that focuses on innovative solutions for conservation and sustainable development, launched new innovations in tubular nets, which work on ""off-bottom"" peg and rope technology.This helps in improving seaweed productivity and local ecological conditions.

Also, these prevent the growth of the high-value Cottonii seaweed species, which helps to get good quality seaweed.

In April 2022, The Seaweed Company, a Netherlands-based provider of seaweed products, acquired Zeewaar for an undisclosed amount.The Seaweed Company anticipates strengthening its position in the "Blue Food" sector by including seaweed entries and ingredients on the menus of European consumers and businesses.

Zeewaar is a Netherlands-based seaweed farm.
