The South America Arachidonic acid market was XX million US$ in 2014 and expected to reach XX million US$ by 2020 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecasted period (2017 - 2022). Arachidonic acid is polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid which is an essential fatty acid for human body. It is found abundantly in microorganism, algae, fish, eggs and beef. At industrial scale it is commercially extracted from the fungal Mortierella alpine though various extraction techniques and then separated and purified to get the pure ARA. In South America the production of AR is low and market is mostly export dependent. China, Thailand and U.S are the largest exporter to the region.

The major driver for the ARA market are increased its application in infant formula products, Increased application in sports nutrition and dietary supplement products and consumer move towards achieving nutritional benefits in diet. The imbalance and insufficient intake of ARA led to health disorder and hence nowadays consumer are more conscious to balance the nutritional gap in their diet which is driving the ARA market. However the high production cost, and large capital investment is affecting the ARA market. Intake of fat is always found to be associated with increase in cholesterol and bad health effect but PUFA and ARA are high potential fats and has less consumer awareness of it. The poor consumer understanding of nutritional benefits of PUFA and ARA is adversely affecting the market growth.

Market segmentation of ARA is categorised on the basis of application type, technology type and by application. In the application type market ARA is further sub segmented into food and pharmaceuticals. In the food application market is divided into infant nutrition and dietary supplement product of which infant nutrition covers the major share in the market. ARA as a dietary supplements are mainly used for sports nutrition products. The market segmentation according to technology is further includes the solvent extraction technology and the solid phase extraction technology. The technology is segmented on the basis of efficiency of production and cost.

Advancement in biotechnology has shown a support for the market. The microbiological source of production is giving a new opportunity for the market as ARA is present in high concentration in microalgae. The raw material availability and its production is a big challenge for some countries like Brazil. The economic and commercial production of microalgae oil which are rich in ARA is setting up a challenge for the region. The key players in the market are Galactic, Cargill, Purac, ADM, Henan Jindam Arachidonic acid Co., Ltd., Corbion, among others. The major competitors prefers investment in new product development and marketing strategy due to volatility in commodity costs to maintain their position.
