Market factors

Natural compounds like chitosan are predicted to see increased demand as people become more aware of the harmful effects of conventional pesticides and seek more environmentally friendly methods of managing crop diseases. Expanding the potential applications of the product in wastewater treatment and cosmetics industry is also expected to help in the development of the market. New large-scale pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities have sprung up in the region as restrictive laws that previously prevented their construction have been eased.

The substance has many agricultural uses, including as a fertilizer to regulate the release of pesticides, as a coating material for fruits and vegetables, and as a seed coating material, all of which work together to increase plant strength and yield. . The antibacterial and antifungal qualities of the product also make it useful for controlling seed-borne diseases. Because chitosan treatments for seeds produce physical barriers (films) surrounding the surface of the seeds, the qualities of the seed are preserved.

Expanding potential uses of chitosan in the cosmetics and personal care industries, as well as its use in wastewater treatment, are factors that are expected to drive the global chitosan market forward. The widespread application of chitosan in the food and beverage sector, as well as in the agricultural sector, is also expected to contribute to the expansion of the chitosan market in the coming years. The fact that it has anticoagulant characteristics is also expected to boost the demand for haemostatic dressings. Another factor that is expected to drive the expansion of the market over the forecast period is the growing demand for cosmetics made from natural ingredients.

However, in the face of a shortage of marine debris, there has been an increase in the number of other sources of commercial chitosan, such as mushrooms, snails and other molluscs. Profitable opportunities for the expansion of the chitosan market may result from the widespread availability of fungal waste in agriculture and the artificial creation of fungi using inexpensive nutrients through simple chemical techniques.
