Squalene is a natural oily liquid hydrocarbon found in plants and animals. Squalene is commonly found in large quantities in shark liver oil. It is the most common lipid produced by human skin cells, making up approximately 10 percent of our sebum. The rise in demand from different applications such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and its benefits on human health fuel the squalene market.
The global squalene market is anticipated to reach $214 million by 2022 compared to $110 million in 2015 growing at a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period. It is segmented based on source, end-use industry, and geography. The rise in awareness of its health benefits has resulted in the increased demand for squalene. Also, the steady rise in the cosmetics industry and increase in disposable income in developing countries such as China and India are responsible for the increase in demand for squalene in the region. In addition, it is used in health foods, vaccines, and as a high-grade machine lubricant.
Based on the source, squalene market is segmented as shark liver, vegetables, and synthetic biotechnology. Vegetable-sourced squalene is expected to be the fastest-growing segment due to its renewable nature, steady availability of raw material, and regulations regarding animal-sourced squalene.
Based on the end-use industry, squalene market is segmented as cosmetics, food supplements, and healthcare. Cosmetics industry dominated the squalene market in 2015, owing to the rise in awareness for using high quality products and willingness to pay premium prices for high quality products.

Growth of the end-use industries such as cosmetics, nutraceuticals, and healthcare industry is expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. Growth in use of squalene as a chemo-preventive agent, and the increase in value and potential of dietary supplements derived from squalene drives the global squalene market. Government regulations to stop shark killing for squalene extraction is expected to affect the growth of the global squalene market during the forecast period.
Food supplement is the fastest growing market due to rise in demand of the squalene products. The leading market players such as Amyris, Inc., and Croda International plc exhibit a strong brand image because of their diverse product offerings and hence, there is a low threat of new entrants in this market. In addition, requirement of high capital investment and difficulties in availability of raw material due to ban on shark fishing by government indicate a low threat of new entrants. These dominant players have captured major market share, thereby benefiting from the economy of scale. Furthermore, there is high cost of squalene produced from vegetable and there is high cost in research and development of synthetic biotechnology.
The demand for squalene from vegetable sources are projected to witness significant growth owing to the stringent government regulation regarding the ban on killing of shark. More and more companies are shifting towards organic sources to reduce the shark liver oil usage. Olives account for the highest share in the market while amaranth seeds are also good alternatives to olives.
Key Findings of the Squalene Market:
Squalene in cosmetics application segment occupied the highest share in 2015, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% in terms of value during the forecast period.
Japan is the leading consumer of squalene accounting for more than one-third share of the Asia-Pacific market, followed by China.
The synthetic bio-technology sourced squalene segment is expected to expand with the highest CAGR of 11.7% in terms of value during the forecast period.
Vegetable sourced squalene segment accounted for approximately half of the global squalene market in 2015.
U.S. is the leading market for squalene in the North American region, growing at a CAGR 6.4% in terms of value during the forecast period.
Europe accounted for the largest share in the global squalene market in 2015, while Asia-Pacific is projected to be the highest growing market for squalene during the forecast period.
