Canthaxanthin Market: An Overview
Canthaxanthin is a colour or dye similar to the pigment that makes carrots orange. It occurs naturally, but can also be sourced by synthetic processes in laboratories. Its key usage is to lower sensitivity to direct sunlight, which is also known as photosensitivity, in people who suffer from Erythropoietic Protoporphyria (EPP), a rare genetic disease. People suffering EPP are prone to skin reactions such as itch, rash and eczema caused due to sunlight. Canthaxanthin deposits under the skin create an artificial tan that carries antioxidant activity, thus offering protection to the skin against sun sensitivity. Moreover, canthaxanthin is used as an additive in food colouring and as an ingredient in animal feed to improve the colour of egg yolks, chicken skin and fresh water fish such as salmon & trout.
Increase in the incidence of skin colour disorders in the Asia Pacific region is expected to significantly boost the canthaxanthin market over the forecast period due to the presence of a large population coupled with growing economy & rapid industrialization, which boost the demand for the product.
Global Canthaxanthin Market: Dynamics
Increase in the demand for canthaxanthin from the healthcare segment owing to its exceptional medicinal property for the treatment of skin diseases, such as itching, rashes and other skin colour disorders, is expected to fuel the demand for canthaxanthin over the forecast period. Moreover, increase in customer awareness about the benefits of the intake of canthaxanthin, coupled with the growing adoption of this ingredient in dietary supplements, personal care, the pharmaceutical industry, and food & beverages, is boosting the canthaxanthin share. However, inappropriate dosage of canthaxanthin can lead to adverse effects on the skin & eyes, as well as result in vision loss. These factors are likely to hamper the demand for canthaxanthin.
