Algae possess properties that make them useful to be incorporated in diversified end products such as ice-creams, cakes, anti-obesity & anti-diabetic agents, aquatic feed ingredients, toothpaste, and moisturizers; their cultivation using both agriculture and aquaculture practices make algae unique among other agricultural products. Algae are uniquely versatile as algae-derived products find application in multiple industries such as food & beverage, feed, nutraceuticals & dietary supplements, personal care, and pharmaceutical. This is expected to be a major driver for the growth of the algae products market.
