Omega-6 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 – 2026

Category : Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC716


Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have a double bond (C=C) at the sixth carbon atom which is known as omega-6, from the end of the carbon chain. PUFAs are crucial fats which are not produced by humans naturally, hence consumed or ingested through food nourishment to improve metabolic progressions such as cognitive and cardiovascular functions.

Market Dynamics

Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes; and rising inclination towards polyunsaturated fats are majorly driving growth of PUFAs market. Conversely, irregular daily intake (RDI) of PUFAs by consumers, growing costs of fish oils and dearth of raw materials, and also, high prices involved in R&D activities are expected to hinder growth of this market. Growing preference for polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) over saturated fats is expected to boost the growth of this market in near years.
