Fish Oil Alternatives Market size to surpass $3.5 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: February 2, 2023

Fish Oil Alternatives Market size is expected to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.


The report indicates that the escalating usage of natural ingredients in cosmetics and skin care products will fuel the market demand. In Europe, for example, consumer inclination toward plant-based cosmetics has risen, encouraging companies to replace synthetic ingredients with natural variants. In the cosmetics industry, there has also been a rising emphasis on improving sustainability and lowering environmental footprints. These factors are likely to proliferate the use of vegan alternatives to fish oils as a hydration enhancer or skin-softening emollient in cosmetic formulations.

Prevalence of insomnia and other chronic conditions to drive consumption of soybean oils

Fish oil alternatives market share from the soybean oil product segment will register over 4% CAGR from 2023 to 2032, owing to the high prevalence of sleep disorders among older adults. Based on statistics from the Sleep Foundation, almost 30% to 48% of older adults experience insomnia. This is predicted to contribute to the development of soybean oils, given the product’s ability to improve sleep quality due to its magnesium content. The growing burden of chronic diseases and the emergence of health and nutritional oil consumption is a prominent trend stimulating soybean oil production.

Growing biofuel acceptance to limit vehicular emissions expedites industry adoption

The biofuels applications segment is projected to be worth USD 500 million by 2032, given the shifting preference toward renewable energy across the automobile sector. Triacylglycerol, found in oils extracted from microalgae and plant seeds, is known to have a high energy density, making them ideal for biofuels. Several proposals have also been presented to curb air pollution from vehicles. These initiatives will enable renewable solutions to emerge as a source of biofuels and in turn, boost the usage of fish oil substitutes.
