Fish Oil Market is Expected to Reach USD 1.7 Billion Globally in 2018: Transparency Market Research
Albany, New York (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
In terms of volume, the demand for fish oil was 1,035 kilo tons in 2011 and is expected to reach 1,130 kilo tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 1.22% from 2012 to 2018. The demand for fish oil is expected to increase owing to the increased demand for omega 3 ingredients. Fish oil is the primary source of omega 3 and with the growing awareness of omega 3 and its benefits; consumers are increasing their intake of omega 3 as part of regular diet.
However, the reduced or static production levels of fish oil acts as a major inhibitor for the growth of the market. This situation is expected to escalate due to the uneven frequency of El Nino, which further reduces the overall fishing volumes.

Majority of fish oil is consumed in the farming of salmons and trout, which are primarily grown in Chile and Peru. However, direct human consumption (DHC) of fish oil has been increasing over the past five years due to increased awareness among customers regarding the benefits of omega 3.
Europe was the largest consumer of fish oil in 2011, with over 450 kilo tons of oil consumed. Asia Pacific and Latin America are expected to be the fastest growing regions in terms of fish oil consumption due to growing aquaculture for carps in China and salmon farms in Chile.
