Focus on Exploration of Newer Chitosan-based Products to Fuel Global Chitosan Market Growth


Chitosan is an amino polysaccharide derived from chitin from the deacetylation process. The chitosan can be derived from a range of sources such as crustaceans’ shells, fungi, and insects. It has wide-ranging applications across agriculture, food and beverages, and medicinal products.

The polysaccharide has found its role in water treatment applications. As it is a naturally derived chemical and growing awareness about the benefits of using chitosan as a cleaning agent, its demand is estimated to increase in the coming years. Growing demand for clean water and harsh regulations implicated on industries over water treatment and cleaning are augmenting demand for chitosan and in turn, propel the growth of the market.

Growing demand for organic cosmetics and inclination towards more natural products encouraging its usage. This is likely to be one of the key factors fueling growth of the global chitosan market. Along with this, the availability of abundant raw material at an affordable cost to produce chitin and chitosan is driving market growth. However, the high cost of production is slowing the acceptance of the chitosan and turn is hampering growth of the market.

The global Chitosan Market is estimated to grab a value of USD 7.35 billion by expanding at a stellar CAGR of 7.1% from 2019 to 2024 (forecast period). This growth is primarily attributable to widening applications across food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics owing to its excellent properties of cholesterol, triglyceride trapping, antioxidant activity, antibacterial and hypoglycemic effects. These properties have surged their applications in pharmaceuticals for preventing chronic diseases. In addition to this, it has applications for the treatment of maladies such as Crohn’s disease, obesity, and high cholesterol. Rising incidence of these diseases are fueling market growth. Further, it has a key role in lowering complications due to kidney failure including insomnia, anemia, and surge in cholesterol level in the body.
