North America Chitosan Market accounted for a prominent revenue share in the worldwide chitosan market. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% in the outlook period between 2021and 2026.

Recent Developments in the North America Chitosan INdustry:

  • In February 2019, Thermo Fisher Scientific reached an agreement with BioNTech a German company, under the terms that BioNTech's messenger RNA (mRNA) manufacturing platform will be supported by Thermo Fisher through the supply of nucleotides, enzymes, and other critical raw materials

  • Danaher acquired IDT expanded its courier zones of free next-day delivery service to scientists based in the following cities: Cambridge, Oxford, and London. This service expansion will help IDT to increase its customer base, and also enable the starting and ending of a project sooner.

Drivers and Restraints of North America Chitosan Market

Chitosan is a kind of amino polysaccharide polymer that is made industrially from the shells of seafood like shrimps, crab, lobster, and crayfish. The raw material for the product has different chitosan content hence play an important role in commercial manufacturing. Shrimp is considered to be the major source for chitosan since it contains about 24% to 45% chitin, whereas the crab shell contains approximately 17% to 20%. Therefore, ease of availability of the raw material for the chitosan market is one of the strongest contributing factors towards its growth.

Rising product demand from the cosmetics industry, on top of that, increasing scope of product application in waste-water treatment is also anticipated to boost the market growth. Additionally, the elimination of stringent regulations and norms that restricted the establishment of new manufacturing units by the Government of Mexico has resulted in the development of new and large-scale pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in the Mexican region.

The major business players in the chitosan market invest in cost-effective and use safer production methodologies. Therefore, there is a lack of drive towards increasing investments and research. This is one of the factors that can hinder the growth of the chitosan market in the North American area.

Impact of COVID-19 on the North American Chitosan Market

North America, especially the USA is the hotspot for the COVID-19 virus with infection rates surging every week. Amidst this, the economies have contracted by 25% and it has an adverse effect on every sector. However, the Chitosan market saw an increase in demand during this period as clinical trials for vaccines were going on, and the search for the foolproof vaccine was on full swing. The packaging sector flourished during this period and chitosan acting as an antimicrobial was in high demand from these packaging sectors. A lot of investments are being made towards the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors which is likely to boost the growth of the Chitosan market.

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 when it comes to the chitosan market.

The industrial, commercial and municipal waste treatment has become one of the major causes of concerns with respect to the stringent environmental regulations that have been imposing on various industries. In the packaging sector, chitosan is being used as antimicrobial agents in food processing. It offers freshness and prevents fungal infections. This is also growing at a high pace in the market and the demand is increasing.
