Drivers and Restraints of the Chitosan Market
Chitosan is a kind of amino polysaccharide polymer that is often developed in the shells of seafoods like crab, lobster, shrimps, and crayfish. The raw material for the product has different chitosan content hence play an important role in commercial manufacturing.

Growth in the food industry is also a major reason for the growth of the European chitosan market. The food-grade chitosan is considered to be highly versatile because of its high solubility and positive charge density. This makes it also suitable for industrial applications.

The major business players in chitosan business are investing in cost-effective and use safety procedures. Therefore, there is a lack of drive towards increasing investments and research. The optimal procedure for commercial-scale extraction can also be a hindering factor.

North America Chitosan market has been segmented into the following categories:

On the basis of Application

  • Water Treatment
  • Medical & Pharmaceutical
  • Biomedical
  • Agrochemicals
  • Food and Beverage

On the basis of Grade

  • Industrial
  • Food
  • Pharmaceutical

Water treatment is the biggest application segment in the European chitosan market.

The industrial, commercial and municipal waste treatment has become a major concern with respect to the stringent environmental regulations that have been implemented by various industries. Food grade chitosan is determined to develop at a very high rate in the forecast period due to the readily available offshore shrimps and crabs that are used in the industrial-grade chitosan.

In the packaging sector, chitosan is being implemented as antimicrobial agents in the food processing industry. It offers freshness and prevents fungal infections, which is developing at a high pace in the market and the need is increasing.
