Increasing health concerns for children’s development to boost the market growth

 Key market drivers for arachidonic acid global market are increasing health concerns for children’s development, rapid urbanization, increasing disposable incomes of individuals and an increasing number of working mothers. In addition, the growing inclination of consumers to packaged baby foods will in the near future generate profitable opportunities. Moreover, increased awareness of baby care forms is a key driver of industry growth. Increased pharmaceutical applications such tablets, injections and syrups also fuel the market growth. However, the high cost and safety issues of products in developing and underdeveloped countries are the factors limiting the global market growth rate due to the improper regulatory framework. Increasing use of ARA in baby food and supplements is expected to drive market growth. In terms of the increased use of baby-food products, the infant-formula segment is expected to see significant growth. The demand for adequate mineral products, such as ARA and DHA, creates greater demands for infant formula based on ARA, which are likely to boost segment growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing product awareness is likely to have a positive impact on market growth due to different marketing activities carried out by major companies. Increasing cases of ARA deficiency leading to the increased demand in for different form of ARA in the form of tablets, sips or injections will bolster the growth of the market. Increased awareness of the importance of maintaining nutritional value can also contribute to global market growth.

Solvents for expected to be the leading form segment

The solvent form is mainly used in formulas and supplements for infants, which become popular throughout the world. Due to the greater profit margins involved, key companies focus on developing advanced solvent-based product portfolios. The increasing use of sports supplements drives the demand for products in this segment. Increased consumer preference for ARA supplements will have a positive effect in the coming years. High sports nutrition expenditure will further increase the product demand. Manufacturers are concentrating on the development of the nutritional supplement which will help to meet to demand in the market.

Infant formula to dominate to the application segment

infant formula is expected to account for the largest segment in the application sector of the global arachidonic acid market. Polyunsaturated fatty acids are responsible for improving the baby eyesight and memory. Thus, increasing demand for such fatty acids is responsible for the market growth of market. In addition, increasing regulatory acceptance in infant nutrition for oil-based products has a positive effect on this growth. Increased awareness of the product advantages of infant food was a primary reason behind increasing demand in the application of infant formulas.

North America was dominant in 2018 With a volume share of over 40%. This increase was attributed to the presence in North America of prominent companies. Due to the developed sports and child nutrition, particularly in the U.S., and high consumer spending capacity, the region is expected to expand further over the forecast years.

The global arachidonic acid market was valued at USD 183.5 million in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period. ARA is a long-chain fatty acid that supports the development of the brain of the infant, along with Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Increased awareness of baby care forms is a key driver of industry growth. Manufacturing of arachidonic acid requires a skilled employee and special equipment for manufacturing materials, with higher costs of manufacturing. Therefore, leading manufacturers concentrate on the R&D and internal manufacturing techniques to lower cost, as it improves quality of product and the brand value.

Key market drivers for arachidonic acid global market are increasing health concerns for children’s development, rapid urbanization, increasing disposable incomes of individuals and an increasing number of working mothers. In addition, the growing inclination of consumers to packaged baby foods will in the near future generate profitable opportunities. Moreover, increased awareness of baby care forms is a key driver of industry growth. Increased pharmaceutical applications such tablets, injections and syrups also fuel the market growth. However, the high cost and safety issues of products in developing and underdeveloped countries are the factors limiting the global market growth rate due to the improper regulatory framework.

The global arachidonic acid market can be segmented on the basis of form, application and geography. On the basis of form, the global arachidonic acid market can be classified into solid and solvent. The solvent form is mainly used in formulas and supplements for infants, which become popular throughout the world. Due to the greater profit margins involved, key companies focus on developing advanced solvent-based product portfolios. Based on application, the global arachidonic acid market can be bifurcated into infant formula and supplements. Based on regions, the global arachidonic acid market is divided into Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world.

The sector consists of a diversified value chain consisting of suppliers of raw materials, manufacturers of upstream goods, distributors and end users. The suppliers of raw materials have become an essential part of the ARA value chain. A key driver for influencing strategies of the main participating industry is the growing importance of suppliers. End users decide to produce less expensive bulk quantities. In the manufacture of forms, yeast, soy, maize and glucose are important raw materials.  The manufacturing industry in the vicinity of end-users is more inclined to reduce transport costs, minimize exposures to currency fluctuations, and take advantage of local incentives. With educational campaigns in the Middle East, child formula manufacturers try to increase consumer awareness. The low level of form penetration in the region attracts global companies.

The key industry players present in the global arachidonic acid market include Cayman Chemical Company; Suntory Beverage & Food Limited; BASF SE and Cargill, Inc. among others.
