Chitosan is an organic carbohydrate polymer derived from chitin. Chitin is a naturally occurring long chain
polymer found abundantly in crustacean marine animals such as crabs, lobsters, shrimps and squids. Chitosan
is also derived from fungal source through substrate fermentation. The global market for chitosan is extremely
attractive as this polymer has wide applications in various end-use industries.
Request Sample Report :
In terms of applications, the chitosan market can be segmented into water treatment, biomedicine &
pharmaceutics, industrial, food & beverages, cosmetics, agrochemical and others. The chitosan market is
driven by demand from water treatment and cosmetics applications, especially from developed regions such as
North America, Europe and Japan. Demand for wastewater treatment chemicals is high due to rising urban
population and industrialization. Demand for chitosan is high in this application owing to its non-toxic nature,
biodegradability and biocompatibility. Demand for chitosan is expected to rise in emerging countries of Asia
Pacific in the near future. Increasing demand for organic constituents in cosmetics and wide applicability of
chitosan in skin care, hair care and oral care cosmetic formulations has also driven the chitosan market. High

production cost of good quality chitosan is the only major restraining factor for the chitosan market. However,
this factor is likely to be negated once economy of scale is achieved. Large opportunities exist in the chitosan
market in terms of development of novel applications of chitosan. Chitosan-based dietary supplements have
significant growth opportunities due to its fat binding and weight reduction properties. Chitosan nanoparticles
also have lucrative opportunities in many applications owing to their higher reactivity and applicability,
especially in biomedicine and pharmaceutical applications.

Water treatment is the largest application of chitosan. Chitosan is generally used as a flocculant to treat
wastewater. Chitosan is an effective coagulant for organic as well as inorganic compounds that are present in
water. It can also be used as a chelating agent in order to bind highly toxic heavy metals that are often present
in industrial wastewater. Chitosan is increasingly finding acceptance in wastewater treatment technology owing
to its easy availability, biodegradability and non-toxic nature. Agrochemical application holds nominal market
share of approximately 5% in the chitosan market. However, it is likely to exhibit the fastest growth rate among
all applications for chitosan in the near future.
Led by Japan and China, Asia Pacific accounted for over 55% share of the global production of chitosan in
2013. Production of chitosan in North America followed that in Asia Pacific. Rest of the World accounted for the
least market share in terms of production in 2013. However, demand for chitosan is the highest in North
America, which imports bulk of its demand from Asia Pacific.
