The Global Spirulina Market size is expected to reach $651 Million by 2025, rising at a market growth of 10.6% CAGR during the forecast period.

Spirulina is multicellular, blue-green microalgae which grow naturally in the alkaline waters of lakes, ponds, and rivers in warm countries. These can be harvested and processed and they have a significantly high macro- and micronutrient content. Due to the adoption of spirulina as a protein supplement and as a human health food, the microalgae have gained significant popularity in the human health food industry and across the developing and under-developed countries, where there is a high prevalence of malnutrition. The microalgae can also be utilized as complementary dietary ingredients of feed for poultry and are largely being used as protein and vitamin supplements for fishes.

Factors such as the introduction of new varieties of natural food colors produced from spirulina, natural health benefits of spirulina superfood, and several government initiatives for facilitating the production of spirulina, are expected to boost the growth of the global spirulina market over the forecast period.
