The global Chitosan Market is expected to reach USD 8.45 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 15.0% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030. One of the key drivers of Chitosan market expansion is the rising demand from a variety of end-use sectors, including the food and beverage industry, the pharmaceutical industry, wastewater treatment process, etc. Additionally, the growing number of product applications in developing regions will significantly influence the global market share for chitosan powders.

 

Market Overview

The chitin shells of shrimp and other crustaceans are treated with an alkaline substance, such as sodium hydroxide, to produce chitosan, a linear polysaccharide. Chitosan has a number of possible uses in both industry and medicine. Chitosan has use in the food and beverage industry as well as in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical, personal care, and agricultural industries. Chitosan aids in the defence of plants against fungus when applied to seeds or used as a bio pesticide. Chitosan is utilised in the beverage sector as an antibacterial and fining agent, particularly in winemaking. The market will develop as a result of the rising demand for chitosan in end user industries, particularly in the food and beverage and wastewater treatment sectors. Using chitin or chitosan to treat wastewater is a significant application. for the removal of dyes, as well as other organic pollutants including organochlorine pesticides, organic oxidised or fatty impurities, and oil impurities, from industrial effluent (for example, textile wastewaters). Hydrophobicity, biocompatibility, biodegradability, non-toxicity, and the presence of highly reactive amino (-NH2) and hydroxyl (-OH) groups in its backbone are only a few of the enticing qualities of chitosan, which make it useful for the treatment of wastewater. The COVID-19 pandemic is driving the growth of the chitosan market since numerous studies have suggested that chitosan might be used as a COVID-19 medicine delivery agent. This is because of its structure, which has free hydroxyl and amine groups that can quickly form hydrogen bonds with other molecules. Governments have allowed the healthcare sector to operate throughout the stringent lockdowns and other rules in order to give COVID-19 treatment, which is contributing to the market's expansion. In the past, the APAC region controlled the world market for chitosan. Additionally, the market is anticipated to increase at the quickest rate during the projection period. This can be attributed to chitosan's chelating ability, which makes it perfect for the treatment of industrial effluents that are high in heavy metals. In this regard, the substantial expenditures being made in water treatment by public and private institutions in China, Malaysia, and India will spur market expansion. These factors have all contributed to a rising in the worldwide Chitosan market year-over-year growth rate.
