The South American Chia Seeds Market is expected to reach USD XX million by 2021 from USD XX million in 2015, registering a double digit growth of CAGR of XX% during the forecasted period, from 2016 to 2021. Extremely high in essential fatty acids and omega-3, chia seeds are additionally loaded with antioxidants (more than blueberries), vitamins, minerals (including more calcium than milk), fiber (more than most bran products) and protein. They deliver additional functional food benefits.

The origin of chia seeds is traced back to South America. Chia seeds are grain seeds with various nutritional properties. They are rich in omega-3, fiber and protein, are a good source of minerals and are gluten free. Currently due to high demand and relatively low supply of chia seeds, value of chia and chia containing products are much higher as compared to canola, soy and flax seeds.

Now considered a super food, the nutritional value and properties of chia seeds have opened a window of opportunity in bread, energy bars, breakfast cereals, yoghurt, beverages, functional food, dietary supplements and the natural cosmetics sector. Chia seeds have become a popular grain in the U.S. as well as Canada and South America. US, South America and Australia are the largest commercial markets for chia seeds.

The major factors driving the industry include the growing demand of cereals, snacks and beverages, increasing demand of healthy food ingredients, rising awareness about gluten free diet, easy transportation and long shelf life. Chia seeds have advantages over competitive products like flax seeds, as chia seeds need not to be grounded and there is no issue of rancidity as in the case of flax. Chia seeds have the same omega-3 content as flax seeds and it is predicted that chia seeds will be replacing the flax seed market in the coming decade. However, high price fluctuation is the only restraint for the growth of the market. Market’s high demand to supply ratio is making the market more lucrative for investors, and is creating opportunities for growth of the market. Looking at the growing popularity of superfoods over the past decade, the market seems to hold unlimited potential for growth.

Chia seed consumption in South America is more than US, as chia is the traditional food of the region. South America accounts for 80% of the global chia seeds supply and, Argentina and Peru are the largest producers in the region. The chia seed markets in Argentina, Peru and Paraguay are expected to grow at CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.

The major companies dominating the market include Chia Corp (Argentina), MDECA Group SRL, Chia Seeds Expatadoes Co Ltd., Chia Freyval Company, Lion Exporter and Chia UPC Peru, among others.
