Chitosan Market Size to accrue $ 4,698.7 million by 2027

According to the research report titled ‘Chitosan Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Grade; Application; Source’, available with Market Study Report LLC, the global chitosan market was worth USD 1,764.3 million in 2018 and is estimated to amass USD 4,698.7 million by the year 2027, while recording a CAGR of 11.5% over 2019-2027.

A natural fibrous material chitosan is derived from chitin. Chitin is found in outer shell of shellfish like shrimps, crabs, and lobsters. Shrimps contains 25%-40% chitin content which makes them a major source of chitosan. Apart from crustaceans and shellfish, some species of fungi also generate small amount of chitin in their membranes. Due to absence of an efficient process to extract chitin from fungi, it is a less utilized source for acquiring chitosan.

Notably, chitosan is a rich source of fiber and is included in dietary supplements to aid weight loss. It is utilized in medicines for treating diseases like crohn’s disease, obesity, and high cholesterol as it blocks absorption of dietary fats and cholesterol. It is also applied on gums to ease the inflammation. It is utilized in combination with some other additives for salt-free dyeing. Rising health cognizance among the population and widespread use of product in pharmaceutical applications are propelling the growth of global chitosan market.
