The most notable growth avenue for the commercial seaweed market has been built through the application of hydrocolloids extracted from seaweeds in the food industry. The commercial application of hydrocolloids was initially developed in North America and Europe. However, the development of commercial farming in Asia Pacific has changed the hydrocolloids industry structure. Indonesia in recent times, has emerged as one of the leaders in the agar and carrageenan seaweed producers while China has taken up a remarkably leading position in the seaweed hydrocolloids processor market.

As the demand for seaweed hydrocolloid continues to grow and novel technologies for processing are developed, seaweed processing is expected to gain traction, in consequence, propelling commercial seaweed industry.

Seaweed extracts are also gaining eminence across pharmaceuticals, textile, cosmetics, paper products and biofuels. An interesting scientific discovery that will potentially widen the scope for commercial seaweed industry is the use of dried seaweed as an additive to cattle feed. Cows release a significant amount of methane into the atmosphere, a gas that is estimated to be approximately 25 times worse than carbon dioxide. Dried seaweed has been found to be effective in controlling the gas problem in cows and eliminating methane by 50 to 70 percent. Commercial seaweed market is also gaining traction through innovative cultivation that has developed seaweed tasting like bacon.

Commercial seaweed market has been thriving in Asia Pacific for the past many decades. The per capita consumption of seaweed in Japan currently is about 4 kg while China consumes around 2 to 2.5 kg. In consequence, Asia Pacific accounted for 75% of the entire commercial seaweed market share in 2016 and is expected to grow at a rapid pace over 2017-2024. Europe and North America have delved into the commercial seaweed industry comparatively recently, but the industry is projected to grow rapidly in these regions owing to the product’s massive application across myriad sectors.
