The era of krill oil is coming

Recently, krill oil has been listed as a separate category by Tmall and has become an independent health food category, which not only means that the nutritional function of krill oil has gradually been recognized by the market, but also means that the era of krill oil is coming.


According to a research result of the New Sijie Industry Research Center, in recent years, with the increasing awareness of health care among global consumers and the increasing recognition of the krill oil market, the market demand for krill oil has gradually increased, and the scale of the industry has continued to expand. With the continuous release of market demand, the krill oil market will continue to expand in the future, and is expected to reach US$530 million in 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of more than 11.4% from 2020 to 2025. According to the forecast of "Pharmaceutical Economics", by 2027, the global market size will exceed 600 million US dollars.

The United States is the largest consumer of krill oil, and 60% of the world's krill oil is consumed by Americans. According to relevant reports, krill oil has been included in the dietary standards of American astronauts and special forces to comprehensively improve their physical functions. 


China's krill oil market is also surging. 

It is attributed to the increase in the global elderly population, especially in developed countries such as the United States, Germany, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom. As a country with a large population, the phenomenon of aging has begun to appear, and the growth of krill oil has also been very rapid in recent years. 

As early as 2013, the National Health and Family Planning Commission issued the "Announcement on the Approval of Three New Food Raw Materials including Serpentine Grape Leaves", officially approving krill oil as a new food raw material. With the affirmation of the function of krill oil, the application field of krill oil is further expanded. 

Demand for krill oil grows rapidly 

This time, Alibaba has classified krill oil as a separate category, which is proof of the rapid growth in demand for krill oil.

The boom in the krill oil market stems from its super high nutritional value and irreplaceable characteristics.

Krill is the organism with the highest protein content that people have discovered today, with a protein content of more than 50 percent, and it also contains extremely rich amino acids necessary for human tissues. It is a natural healthy food gifted by nature to human beings, and it contains functions that other foods cannot replace.

 In the context of global fishery resource decline and most marine fishery species being overfished, the huge resources of Antarctic krill have attracted more and more attention. Antarctic krill oil is extracted from Antarctic krill and is naturally rich in nutrients such as marine phospholipids, Omega-3 (DHA and EPA), choline and astaxanthin. Clinical research results show that krill oil is easier to absorb than traditional cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health products such as fish oil. Krill oil can significantly reduce triglyceride levels and protect cardiovascular health. At the same time, it also has a more comprehensive health protection effect on joints, liver, brain, skin and eyes.

Among them, marine phospholipids are lipid compounds containing phospholipid roots, which are the basic substances of life. The human cell membrane is composed of about 70% protein and about 30% phospholipids, which has a significant and far-reaching impact on health; choline can promote brain development, improve memory ability, and regulate cell apoptosis. The combined effect of choline and marine phospholipids has good Emulsifying properties can prevent the deposition of cholesterol on the inner wall of blood vessels and remove some deposits, while improving the absorption and utilization of fat. And astaxanthin has a strong antioxidant capacity. Experiments have found that its antioxidant capacity is 10 times that of β-carotene and 500 times that of vitamin E.

 A study published in "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in 2022 showed that daily intake of 4 grams of krill oil can help alleviate the condition of skeletal muscle loss in the elderly over 60 years old. That same year, another study published in the same journal also confirmed that consumption of krill oil improved symptoms such as knee pain, stiffness, and physical function.

 As China's aging market continues to expand, more and more consumers are turning their attention to healthy foods that help maintain vitality and strength as well as maintain cognitive function.
