The Seaweed Cultivation Market To Stick To The Innovative Invigoration

The global seaweed cultivation market is pegged at 41,849 KT in 2022 and is set to reach 82,727 KT by the end of 2032. Worldwide demand for seaweed is on the rise, especially across the North American and European regions.

Globally, consumers are shifting toward plant-based food products and many people are following vegan diets. Seaweed, if extracted in adequate quantities using cost-effective methods, can be considered as a great alternative source that is ideal for vegan and vegetarian consumers due to its amino acid profile that is similar to that of eggs.

Red seaweed is a promising alternative containing 9-25% of protein depending upon the season of collection and harvesting.
