Global Omega 3 PUFA Market


Omega 3 Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acid (PUFA) is a type of fat which is essential for human health; but is not synthesized by the human body and hence, has to be consumed via food. The Omega 3 PUFA ingredients can be obtained from Animal and plant sources such as from fish oil, algae, krill, nut oil, etc. The Omega 3 PUFA, also known as Omega 3 fatty acids, play a significant role in maintaining the heart health, brain functioning, normal growth and in offsetting symptoms of various conditions like depression, diabetes, arthritis, etc. As a result of these benefits offered by Omega 3 PUFA, its market is expected to grow significantly in the forecast period.


The end-users of Omega 3 PUFA are the people with awareness of health benefits, the people who intake Omega 3 fatty acids for general nutrition, or for concerns related to chronic diseases.
New line of high concentrate DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) products are launched by DSM. Also, Incromega DHA is launched by Croda. These new technological introductions are ideal for cognitive health; the former one also provides cardiovascular support.

Market Dynamics

The increasing population in the emerging economies, the increasing concerns and awareness about health care, and the increasing demand for polyunsaturated fatty acids in functional food are contributing to the growth of the Omega 3 PUFA market. The growing range of health benefits provided by EHA and DHA omega 3 including significant reduction in chronic disease risks and increase in general nutrition is the central factor for the increasing demand and hence the growth of this market. However, the growth is restricted to some extend because of factors like high cost of production, high cost of raw materials like fish oil and lack of RDI (recommended dietary intake) standard.
