Chitin Market : Expansion Of The Biopolymer Processing Industry Anticipate To Increase The Demand

Chitin Market Overview

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Chitin Market grew at a CAGR of 5.5% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 1,978.3Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 4,115.4Mn by 2032 end.

Chitin is widely present in the natural world. The most prevalent substance is cellulose. In terms of natural occurrence, chitin is second. They primarily consist of yeast, fungi, insects, and crustaceans. Crabs and shrimp have also recently been thought of as sources. In essence, their market demand is a result of the expansion of the biopolymer processing industry.

The mechanical strength and crystallinity of nanochitin are excellent. Chitin has several important advantages, including non-toxicity, non-allergic, anti-microbial, and biodegradability. Chitin can now be mechanically processed thanks to advancements in technology. This turned out to be a profitable business opportunity.

ChemView Consulting has analyzed that leftover shrimp, crab, and lobster produce the most chitin. Insect chitin, a byproduct of animal feed production, has become a new source of chitin synthesis in Europe. While adult insects are used for reproduction, insect larvae are used as a source of protein for animal feed. The main sources of chitin are the corpses of dead insects and cocoons.

The most common applications for chitosan are in food and drink. Because it binds dietary fats and lipids in the colon and prevents them from getting saturated in the body, it is used in nutraceuticals and nutritional supplements. Manufacturers of food additives, edible films, and food preservatives employ chitosan widely on a global scale.
