Significant developments that can change the business landscape as well as market forecasts

The share of the source segmentation was calculated based on the share of the type segmentation. ALA is mainly found in plant oils; however, some part of it comes from the marine sources. Whereas, EPA and DHA are obtained from marine sources only.

The growing number of omega-3 manufacturers in the US and the largest number of existing companies in the country are factors considered for the higher CAGR of the country in the market.

The falling supply of fish stocks and lack of aquaculture management due to sustainability issues have made manufacturers shift to plant alternatives. Due to this reason, the plant source segment is growing at a relatively higher rate.

A majority of the infant and mother nutrition products in the US are now DHA-fortified. Due to this reason, the market for infant formula and DHA are growing at a higher rate in the country.

The rising number of health concerns among the various age groups across the world has resulted in an increasing demand for omega-3 supplements that target specific ailments, which, in turn, drive the market. Recent launches and research in infant and mother nutrition products for infant brain development have resulted in high usage of DHA in these products, which has significantly affected market growth.
