Arachidonic acid is a polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty-acid. Along with (DHA), it helps in infant brain development. It is one of the essential acids in omega 6 group as it is stored in cell membranes and it sends signals if there is any kind of muscle damage. Arachidonic acid is particularly used by people involved in sports, bodybuilders and weightlifters etc. Athletes needs sufficient amount of Arachidonic acid in their body, lack of which results in decline of their performance. The lack of the Arachidonic acid is substituted by taking tablets, syrups or injections that are rich in Arachidonic acid. It significantly helps in healing critical injuries.

--> Consumers specifically infants and women

Market Dynamics

Arachidonic acid is prominently used by food industries in the application of various products like infant nutrition and women nutrition products and also by the pharmaceutical industries. The most important application is in the infant formula products and as a dietary supplement. Arachidonic acid is conditionally an essential acid and is required by the body if it is not synthesized by the linoleic acid. It is important for the growth and development of the brain and especially required by infant and premature baby. Thus is widely used at the commercial level in infant food products.
The major driver for the market are the increased demand in infant food applications of Arachidonicacid, the increased fortification in food products and the regulatory approval for the ARA in infant foods. The GRAS status for addition of ARA in the infant nutrition up to a certain level by the government regulation has accelerated the ARA market in infant nutrition products. It is alsoauthorised as a good food ingredient in some regions. The high capital investment, high cost of technology, costly industrial production of ARA due to high raw material and processing cost are the major constraints for the market.

Market Segmentation

Arachidonic acid market is distributed in different segment on the basis of application type, technology and geography. In the application type market, it is further sub divided into food and pharmaceuticals. In the food application, ARA is divided into infant nutrition and dietary supplement product of which infant nutrition market covers the major share. As a dietary supplement, itis mainly used for sports nutrition products. The market segmentation according to technology further is inclusive of the solvent extraction technology and the solid phase extraction technology. The technology is segmented on the basis of efficiency of production and cost associated with it.

Regional/Geographical Analysis

The market is segmented on this basisinto North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and South America. North America holds the largest share of the Arachidonic acid market in food application followed by Europe and Asia pacific. The EU regulatory environment has significantly contributed to the growth of the market in the region.


--> Advancement in biotechnology has created a good opportunity for the market. The microbiological source of production is further enhancing the opportunity for the market as ARA is present in high concentration in microalgae. The microalgae production as the raw material for ARA is another potential challenge for the industry.

--> Increased number of outdoor activities such as marathons, car racing, FIFA, and Olympics, where the risk of physical injuries is high, is expected to accelerate the demand for Arachidonic acids significantly. Further, rising road accidents are one of the other major factors for the rapid growth in the demand for Arachidonic acids currently. Additionally, increased awareness regarding child care and rising trend for baby care are some of the major factors aiding in the growth in the demand for Arachidonic acids at present.

--> The developing countries are being expected to manifest potential opportunities for the growth of the Arachidonic acids market on account of the increasing number of sports events, rising child care awareness initiatives, increased demand for infant products and rising awareness about the merits offered by Arachidonic acids.
