According to a report published by Fortune Business Insights, titled “Omega-3 Fatty Acids Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Source (Concentrates, Fish Oil, Algae Oil, Krill Oil, and Other Plant Sources), Application (Dietary Supplements, Functional/Fortified Foods, Infant Formulae, Pharmaceuticals, and Animal Feed & Pet Food), and Regional Forecast, 2020 - 2027,” the market was worth USD 1,450.24 million in 2019 and will exhibit a CAGR of 3.89% during the forecast period, 2020-2027.

Omega-3 fatty acids are health-supplementing foods that are found in foods such as fish and flaxseeds. The substance is a form of essential fatty acid that the human body needs for metabolic functioning. These substances cannot be produced by the human body and need to be consumed from food sources. The recent coronavirus outbreak has led to a steep fall in the food and beverage industry. As people are stuck indoors for most parts of the day, outdoor activities have come to a standstill and several businesses have been shut down. This has directly affected the consumption of this type of fatty acid. The Covid-19 pandemic will affect this type of fatty acid vendors across the world. Having said that, the post-pandemic phase will present several opportunities for the companies operating in the market. This is mainly due to the increased efforts that companies will put in to revamp their businesses and overcome the losses due to the pandemic.
