Key Market Trends

Health Benefits Associated with Omega-3 Consumption

Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, are essential in the human diet for proper growth, development, and good health. These have been found to be particularly good for heart health, joint and inflammation support, eye health, cognitive function, pregnancy, and healthy child development, and immune function, among other benefits. Recently, deaths from cardiovascular disease have witnessed an increase globally, though mortality rates decrease. Western Europe and Central Europe are the only 2 of the 21 regions where cardiovascular deaths and death rates have declined. There is an availability of a range of complementary life course strategies to improve cardiovascular health in the youth and adult population as they age. Such approaches focus on both improving cardiovascular health among those who currently have less than optimal levels, and on preserving cardiovascular health among those who currently have ideal levels.

Germany Holds the Major Market Share of Europe Omega-3 Products Market

According to dietary guidelines, Germans are encouraged to eat 150- 220 g of fish per week, in order to consume enough essential omega-3 fatty acids. However, despite a high level of awareness, only a few Germans consume enough fish. As an alternative, Chia Seeds are becoming increasingly popular in Europe, due to their nutritional and health properties (omega 3 and fiber). Germany is the largest importer of chia seeds in Europe, followed by the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Spain is one of the developing markets for omega-3 in Europe, and hence, the potential of market growth. Consumption of EPA and DHA largely depends on three factors—taste, price, and recommendation of doctors. The fortified food is largely dependent on how it is in taste after fortification.
