Chitosan Market Growth Overview, New Updates, Trends, Incremental Revenue, Opportunities, Challenges and Forecasts till 2022

Chitosan is a polysaccharide derivative of chitin that is obtained from the shells of marine animals such as shrimps, lobsters, crabs, and others. Chitin extracted from crustacean shell waste is further processed and treated with acids and alkalis to obtain chitosan. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAOSTAT), Europe produces around 750,000 tons of crustacean shell waste every year. This waste disposal in the developed countries is highly expensive, for instance, it costs around $150 per ton in Australia.

In addition, the waste is high in proteins and chitin. However, as chitin is the second most beneficial polysaccharide found in nature, other than cellulose, it makes the waste highly valuable. Chitosan is used in a variety of applications such as in agriculture as a bio-pesticide & plant growth promoter, for water treatment, and in the biomedical sector for blood clotting & weight loss. Several researches have estimated potential applications of chitosan in polyurethane paints & coatings, bioprinting of organs, and as a food preservation material.
