Chitosan Market Overview:

Global chitosan market size is expected to reach $2,550 million by 2022 from $1,205 million in 2015, registering a CAGR of 10.7% from 2016 to 2022. Chitosan is the deacetylated form of chitin, a biopolymer extracted from the shells of crustaceans such as shrimp, crabs, and others. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAOSTAT), around 750,000 tons of crustaceans’ shell waste is generated annually in Europe. In the processing of crustaceans, around 40% of the total mass is the shell whereas rest is consumed. This shell waste is characterized with high amount of chitin that is further processed to produce chitosan, glucosamine, and other derivatives. On an average, a waste crustacean shell comprises of 30-40% protein, 30-50% calcium carbonate, and approximately 30% of chitin. The shell waste containing chitin is treated with specific alkalis and acids under optimal reaction conditions. After undergoing successive demineralization and deproteinization, chitin is obtained that is further deacetylated to produce chitosan. Apart from crustacean shell waste, chitosan can also be produced from certain fungi. However, low amount of chitin in the cell walls of fungi and the absence of an optimal procedure for extraction of chitin on a commercial scale makes it a less used source for obtaining chitosan.

The global chitosan market report focuses on chitosan and its major applications including, water treatment, food & beverage, cosmetics, biomedical & pharmaceuticals, bioprinting & agriculture, and others. Furthermore, the report includes market segmentation based on sources of chitosan such as shrimp, crab, krill, and squid. The report does not put much emphasis on the chitosan that can be produced from the chitin present in the fungus cells. It presents chitosan market size in terms of both value and volume. The data has been gathered majorly from the secondary sources such as company publications, Hoovers, Factiva, and others. The data has been validated after analysis from the C-level executives and directors of the companies present in the global chitosan market.

The chitosan market for water treatment accounted for the highest share as it covered more than one-third of the global market. Other than water treatment, the biomedical & pharmaceuticals market is expected to grow at the fastest rate, owing to the extensive research activities focused on using chitosan for transdermal drug delivery systems and as a hemostatic agent in bandages. Chitosan is known to have excellent hemostatic properties and can clot blood faster than other hemostatic agents. HemCon, Celox, Chitoseal, QuikClot, and Chitoflex are some of the commercialized chitosan based dressings that are used to control moderate to severe bleeding. The cost of pharmaceutical grade chitosan with around 90% degree of deacetylation varies from $35 to $70 per kilogram.

Based on the source from which chitosan is extracted, the market can be segmented across shrimp, crab, squid, and krill. Although, squid pen is a rich source of chitin, large scale production is not feasible due to its low availability. Consequently, shrimp and crab are the two major sources for chitin and chitosan production; as shrimp shell waste yields 25-40% chitin, while crab yields about 20% chitin.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific dominates the global chitosan industry, accounting for more than half of the total market size. Asia-Pacific has abundant raw materials owing to the presence of coastal areas, resulting in a  significant presence of both, small and large scale market players. The processing of shell waste must be done immediately as the microbes tend to start reducing the chitin content rapidly. However, freezing the shells can help retain the chitin content for a longer time. Thus, during the export and import of shell waste, the shells are preserved by drying or freezing methods. The key market players in Thailand are more focused on the production of agricultural grade chitosan.
