Growing awareness about the health benefits of omega-3 PUFAs is likely to be the major driving factor for the global omega-3 PUFA market over the forecast period. Omega-3 and omega-6 PUFAs play an essential role in maintaining the body’s immune system, skin health, as well as nervous system. Brain function may also be enhanced by regular consumption of omega-3 PUFAs. Growing research into PUFAs has resulted in increasing consumer awareness about omega-3 as well as omega-6 PUFAs, leading to easy commercialization opportunities for manufacturers. The increasing demand for dietary supplements and related products is likely to be a key driver for the omega-3 PUFA market over the forecast period.
The increasing demand for preventative medicine rather than curative medicine is likely to be a major driver for the omega-3 PUFA market. With growing awareness, consumers in many parts of the world are opting to live a lifestyle that will enable disease prevention. This includes an increasing emphasis on exercise and nutrition, with the consumption of healthy foods being a high priority. Food supplements have thus become important in the global food and beverage industry, carving out a strong niche in the latter, especially in developed regions such as the U.S. and Europe. This is likely to be a major driver for the omega-3 PUFA market over the forecast period, as the majority of omega-3 PUFAs consumed are consumed as supplements.
