Increased adoption of the phycocyanin for food color processing, manufacturing of dietary supplement, nutraceuticals, and therapeutic products is expected to boost the demand for phycocyanin during the forecast period. Consumer awareness regarding health hazards due to the synthetic colors and use of the spirulina as high nutritional food source and coloring agent are further attributed for the growth of the market during the forecast period. Consumption of the synthetic colors through food & beverages are showing the major serious side effects such as hyperactivity in children, as well as cancer and allergies.

Phycocyanin extracted from spirulina has both nutritional and coloring properties; therefore, gaining major traction in the food & beverages industry. Many countries are banning the trading of products containing synthetic food colors, which is positively impacting the growth of the phycocyanin market. For instance, Allura red AC is a synthetic food color banned in Denmark, Belgium, France, and Switzerland. Furthermore, increase in product launch related to natural and organic food color is likely to increase the phycocyanin market size during the forecast period. For instance,  DDW Inc. is food colorant manufacturing company, which launched a new blue color phycocyanin liquid with improved light stability by up to 40%. However, high cost of natural colors, purification and its extractions and risk of algae contamination are likely to restrain the growth of the phycocyanin market. 

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the food & beverages industry; however, the phycocyanin market has been witnessing significant growth due to its applications in dietary supplement, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceutical industries. During the pandemic, people are highly inclined to adopt the health food to boost their immunity powers, which significantly accelerated the demand for health-related food and medicinal products; thus, phycocyanin with high nutritional and therapeutic applications gained major traction during the pandemic.

According to the phycocyanin market analysis, the phycocyanin market is segmented on the basis of form, grade, application, and region. On the basis of form, the market is categorized into powder and liquid.

On the basis of grade, the market is categorized into food grade, pharma grade and reagent & analytical grade. By application, it is segregated into food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmsetics, nutraceuticals and others. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, Australia, South Korea, India, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and rest of LAMEA).

On the basis of form, the powder segment accounted for the around half of the global phycocyanin market share in 2020, and is expected to maintain this trend during the forecast period. This is majorly attributed to advantages of using phycocyanin powder as it easily and quickly breaks down and offers high comfort of digestion in comparison to other forms. In addition, powder allows active nutrient delivery and offers high flexibility with dosing.

On the basis of application, the pharmaceutical segment was valued at $12.5million in 2020, and is expected to reach $35.8 million by 2030, with a CAGR of 10.5%. This is majorly attributed to medical efficacy of the phycocyanin from spirulina as contain high nutrition, vitamins, beta-carotene, and antioxidants.  Furthermore, considerable use of the phycocyanin for cancer diagnosis is likely to generate more demand and traction of the phycocyanin in the pharmaceutical industry. For instance, according to the report by Ganter et al, only 10% of standard dose of topotecan was combined with C-PC, the prostate cancer cells (LNCaP) were killed at a higher rate than when topotecan was used alone at full dose.  C-PC induce apoptosis through generation of ROS and activation of caspase-9 and caspase-8.7.

Analyst Review

In accordance with several interviews conducted, top-level CXOs agree that the food & beverages industry has slowly started phasing out artificial colors due to rise in safety concerns and increase in demand for natural colors. Phycocyanin is considered to be one of the popular natural food colors among the food & beverage manufacturers. Phycocyanin extracted from spirulina is a protein that imparts a vibrant blue color. In addition, it can be combined with other colors to make customized colors such as green and lavender or violet shades, which makes it ideal for usage in various food & beverages products.

Phycocyanin extracted from Spirulina comprises high antioxidant, hypolipidemic, beta-carotene, and anti-inflammatory properties. It offers health benefits such as reduced cholesterol and blood pressure, owing to exceptional properties. Growth in penetration of spirulina based phycocyanin in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries is further expected to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

North America was the leading revenue contributor to the global phycocyanin market in 2020, and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to its increase in demand for naturally derived food coloring agents in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the study period, as it offers lucrative opportunities for the market players, owing to favorable production environment for the phycocyanin processing industry in the region.

However, the existing challenges such as close substitutes and lack of awareness regarding the phycocyanin benefits are expected to hamper the growth of the phycocyanin market during the forecast period. Furthermore, high cost of natural colors, purification, and its extractions and risk of algae contamination are likely to restrain the growth of the market.
