Selbyville, Delaware, March 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

The brown commercial seaweed market valuation is slated to surpass USD 36 billion by 2032, as reported in a research study by Global Market Insights Inc.


The rapid population growth and evolving processed food trends are prominent drivers for brown commercial seaweed demand. Based on survey data from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs of South Korea, in 2021, 23.7% of households purchased processed goods two to three times per week, a 3.1% rise from 2020. Since seaweeds are nutrient-dense and extensively used as a processed good ingredient, the rise in consumer spending will also augment the industry expansion. Furthermore, the shifting preference toward clean labels will escalate the use of seaweed as organic fertilizers in agriculture applications.

Wet brown seaweed is gaining rapid momentum as a raw material in the hydrocolloid industry, due to its high vitamin and mineral content.

Furthermore, the maintenance of diets rich in seaweed is associated with reduced body weight in poultry. Poultry has also become the most consumed livestock commodity, especially in emerging and developing nations.
