The Europe 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 an omega-6 fatty acid which is commercially extracted from the fungal Mortierella alpine though various extraction techniques and then separated and purified to get the pure ARA. ARA is synthesised in our body from linoleic acid source and the deficient of which makes ARA as an essential fatty acid.

Arachidonic acid is widely used by food industries in various product applications such as infant nutrition products, dietary supplements and also by the pharmaceutical industries. Europe is the second largest consumer of arachidonic acid in the world. ARA mostly used for infant nutrition as it is an essential fatty acid for growth and development of brain.

The major driver for the ARA market are increased application in infant formula and sports nutrition products, government authorisation for use of ARA in foods , and increased in fortification of products to meet nutritional gap. The insufficient intake of ARA shows nutritional gap in the diet hence consumers are more inclined towards its health benefits which is driving the 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.

The government approval for ARA to be used as a novel food ingredient has created a good opportunity for the European market. Also the advancement in biotechnology has supported 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 production ARA from other source than fungal is a big challenge for the market due to its high raw material cost and wastage. 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.
