By type, lipids are projected to dominate the market during the forecast period

Lipids are energy-rich organic compounds that are insoluble in water. Certain amounts of lipids are essential for healthy body functions. They help in absorbing and using vitamins A, D, E, and K in the human body. They are also important for internal signaling systems and are a part of cell walls. Omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 are the different types of lipids.

It is a unique form of dietary fats that impart a wide range of health benefits and are derived from algae. Algae have become the major alternative sources to produce lipids to fulfill the growing demand from the vegan population.
