Fish oil, which is derived from the body tissue of oily fish, such as salmon, tuna, anchovy, and others have various health benefits, due to the presence of omega 3 fatty acids within it. Presence of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in omega 3 fatty acids make them crucial to be utilized for the production of dietary supplements.

Fish oil, being a rich source of crucial omega 3 fatty acids, can potentially help in reducing bad cholesterol, blood pressure, and can reduce the chances of coronary heart diseases, which in turn is expected to drive the fish oil market growth. Abundant availability of land for fish farming and favorable climatic conditions in countries, such as China and India is boosting the aquaculture activities in the countries, which is further expected to fuel the growth of fish oil market in the upcoming years.

The high price of fish oil, coupled with a high demand-supply gap in the fish oil market can obstruct the growth of the global fish oil market during the forecast years. Increased consumption of fish oil by aquaculture can lead to its shortage for other applications, such as dietary supplements, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and others, which can affect the market growth negatively.
