The carotenoids market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $1,428.12 million by 2019, at a CAGR of around 3.5% from 2014. Factors such as, high health benefits, increasing end-use application, and easy availability are the major drivers of the carotenoids market. Carotenoids are one of the most important classes of plant pigments and play a very important role in defining the quality parameter of fruit and vegetables. Carotenoids are found majorly in plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria; however humans and animals have to rely upon food as a source of these compounds. Carotenoids may also be found in some of the non-photosynthetic bacteria and molds where they protect them against damage from light and oxygen. They are responsible for the red, orange, and yellow coloration of plant leaves, fruits, and flowers as well as for some of the birds, insects, fish, and crustaceans. Some of the familiar examples of carotenoids coloration are the red color of tomatoes and carrots, orange color of citrus fruits, and the pink color of flamingos. Around 600 various carotenoids are known to occur naturally and many of them are still being identified.
Carotenoids are classified into beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin and others (including annatto, capsanthin, fucoxanthin, and trans-a-apo-8-carotenal).
