Global Commercial Seaweed Market Dynamics (including market size, share, trends, growth, forecast, and industry analysis) Key Drivers

The global commercial seaweed market is projected to witness strong demand in the near future. This is mainly due to the accelerating adoption of commercial seaweed as Hydrocolloids, specifically in the food industry. Various seaweed-produced hydrocolloids are often used to improve the thickness and stability of food products. Seaweeds are considered a rich source of biochemicals such as amino acids, proteins, lipids, peptides, minerals, etc. In addition to this, the rising awareness related to animal welfare followed by environmental sustainability has encouraged individuals to consume plant-based products.

The consumption of commercial seaweed as a food product has been traced back to the 4th century in Japan and 6th century in China. South Korea, China, and Japan are the top consumers of the product. Various research related to the lifecycle of commercial sea vegetables has helped in the development of cultivation industries, which are now producing around 85 percent of the overall demand.

Type Segment Drivers

Based on type, the red seaweed segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing usage of red seaweed, as it offers various remarkable properties such as a good source of vitamins and mineral, and contains iodine and tyrosine, is one of the biggest factors that is contributing to the growth of the segment in the market. On the other hand, the brown seaweed segment is anticipated to dominate the market in the coming years. The accelerating utilization of brown seaweed as food and raw materials for the extraction of hydrocolloid and alginate is surging the demand of the segment. They are found in warmer waters and are less used for alginate production.
