                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Arachidonic Acid Market

The global arachidonic acid market size was valued at USD 180.4 million in 2017 and is projected to register a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. ARA is a long chain fatty acid, which along with Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), supports the development of the infant’s brain. Increasing awareness regarding baby care products is among the primary factors driving the industry growth. The product manufacturing requires a skilled workforce and special material handling equipment resulting in higher production costs.
Thus, to reduce the production costs, leading manufacturers are focusing on R & D and in-house manufacturing techniques as it improves the product quality, thereby enhancing the brand value. The industry is characterized by a diversified value chain, which consists of raw material suppliers, upstream manufacturers, distributors, and end-users. Raw material suppliers emerged as an essential element across the value chain of the ARA industry. Increasing importance of suppliers is a key driver to influence the strategies of the major industry participants.
End users are opting for cheaper bulk quantities of the product. Prominent raw materials used in product manufacturing include yeast, soy, corn, and glucose. Key manufacturers are involved in product synthesis by modifying mortierella alpine (M.alpine), which is considered an efficient mean of production. Mass production is one of the most implemented strategies adopted by key players to reduce the cost of the final product.
Producers are more inclined toward manufacturing the product in the vicinity to end-users to reduce transportation costs, minimize currency fluctuation exposure, and benefit from local incentives. In the Middle Eastern countries, infant formula-producing companies are trying to increase the consumer awareness through educational campaigns. Low product penetration is attracting the global companies to expand their operations in this region.
