DUBLIN, April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Chitosan Market by Grade (Industrial, Food, and Pharmaceutical), Application (Water Treatment, Food & Beverages, Cosmetics, Medical & Pharmaceuticals, and Agrochemicals), and Region (Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Row) Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The chitosan market is projected to grow from USD 553.6 Million in 2017 to USD 1,088.0 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 14.5% between 2017 and 2022.
The increasing use of chitosan in the water treatment, food & beverages, cosmetics, medical & pharmaceuticals, and agrochemicals applications is fueling the growth of the chitosan market across the globe. Moreover, the growing trend toward the use of chitosan for water treatment to reduce the use of chemical products is also leading to the growth of the chitosan market.
The chitosan market has been classified into three grades, namely, industrial grade, food grade, and pharmaceutical grade. Industrial grade chitosan is most commonly used in a wide range of applications due to its low cost. The non-toxicity of chitosan enables its use in the treatment of the potable water and industrial wastewater. The typical applications of the industrial grade chitosan are water treatment, agrochemicals, pulp & paper, and textiles.
Based on application, the chitosan market has been classified into water treatment, food & beverages, cosmetics, medical & pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and others. Among applications, the water treatment segment is projected to lead the chitosan market, in terms of value during the forecast period. The growth of the water treatment application segment of the chitosan market can be attributed to the increased use of chitosan for treating water due to its biosorbent ability, which enables it to remove pollutants from wastewater.
