The North 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). US Infant formula supplemented with ARA market accounts for US$3.09 billion sales and growing with a CAGR of 1.48%. Arachidonic acid are the conditionally essential fatty acid found abundantly in microorganism, fish, beef and eggs. ARA being an omega-6 fatty acid is commercially produced from fungal Mortierella alpine though various extraction techniques

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. US is the major market for Arachidonic acid application in infant foods. ARA mostly used for infant nutrition as it is an essential fatty acid for growth and development of brain.

The driver for the ARA market are increased demand for infant nutrition products containing ARA, increased application in sports nutrition, various health benefits of ARA and the government approval for incorporation into infant products. ARA has received the GRAS status from USFDA and also allowed with a certain limit in the infant nutrition products which has triggered the market. The important function properties of ARA is increasing the consumer demand in the region as a functional foods in the market. However the high production cost, and large capital investment is affecting the ARA market. The investment in separation and purification technology is relatively high for the plant production and thus becoming a restrain for the ARA market.

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 new processing technology involved in the production of ARA is supporting the market with its more efficient and cost effective product. The microbiological source of production is giving a new opportunity for the market as ARA is present in high concentration in microalgae. The high investment in the production of Arachidonic acid is still a big challenge for the market growth. 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.
