The global fish oil market was valued at nearly USD 11.95 billion in 2021, the market is predicted to grow with a CAGR of 6.7 percent to reach around USD 17.64 billion by 2028. The presence of omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil, which is obtained from the tissue of oily fish such as tuna, salmon, anchovy, and others, has a variety of health advantages. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the manufacturing of nutritional supplements because they contain docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). All such ingredient has increased their demand in pharmaceutical as well as nutraceutical manufacturers.

The global fish oil market is largely driven by a change in lifestyle and an increasing population of health-conscious population. Fish oil, being a high source of essential omega 3 fatty acids, has the ability to lower blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and the risk of coronary heart disease, all of which are projected to propel the fish oil market forward. The abundance of land for fish farming and suitable climatic conditions in countries like India and China are expanding aquaculture operations, which is projected to fuel the expansion of the fish oil market in near future. However, the high cost of fish oil, along with a large demand-supply imbalance in the fish oil industry, may stymie the market expansion in the coming years. On the other side, an increase in disposable income and growing awareness about the benefits of fish oil are likely to offer better growth prospects.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, market growth remained stable. Increased use of fish oil is seen as the influence of its immunity booster properties. A surge in uptake of a variety of supplements to improve the overall immunity contributed to a constant demand for fish oil in the global market.
