Plants, nut oils, and fish such as tuna, salmon, and halibut, as well as other sea foods such as krill and algae, contain omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids required for human health. These fatty acids are essential for brain function as well as human growth and development. Omega-3 fatty acid consumption lowers the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis.
Omega 3 Market Dynamics
- Rising health awareness of consumption Omega 3s
The omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce the risk of abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmias, which can result in the patient's sudden death. It also aids in the reduction of triglyceride levels, the slowing of the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and the reduction of blood pressure. Consumers are increasingly shifting to healthier alternatives while viewing preventive care as a necessary tool to assist them in leading a healthier lifestyle. As a result, Omega 3s are becoming more popular because they are a good source of vitamins, proteins, and minerals and can help with diseases like cancer, asthma, and depression.
- Marketing strategies and endorsements to boost market growth
Some of the factors that influence consumers' purchasing decisions are brand name, nutritional value, and product safety. Awareness of the benefits of omega-3-based supplements through various forms of media, including electronic and print, is also likely to influence purchasing behaviour. Fish consumption is expected to rise further, particularly in developing countries. Fish oil is the primary source of Omega 3s.
The increasing application of omega 3 fatty acids in pet food and pharmaceuticals is boosting the market, as are increasing public initiatives associated with health and fitness, which further aid the market. The growing consumer awareness of the health benefits of omega-3 is driving the demand for market players to innovate in order to remain competitive. On the other hand, the technology delivers odorous oils in a micro-emulsified formulation that is designed to increase surface absorption. The OmegaZero® Technology aids in the emulsification of odoriferous oil in the gut rather than forming a layer on the surface of the gastric juice, significantly reducing the oil's contact surface with air.
However, uneven fish capture and rising demand for fish from other application sources reduce their availability at a lower cost, limiting market growth. Increasing environmental, metal, and hazardous pollutants in fish are making them toxic for consumption, which is expected to limit the segment's growth. Furthermore, increased regulations on fishing activities to protect fish species are expected to have an impact on the industry's raw material supply.
