Phycocyanin Market Overview
The global Phycocyanin market is expected to grow at a sound pace in the times to follow. Consumers of various ages have been drawn to items such as vivid blue-tinted frosting on a cupcake or an ocean-blue coloured candy. Food additives or food colourants are responsible for the product's blue colour. Phycocyanin is a blue pigment generated from blue-green algae found in the sea that is used as a food colourant. Phycocyanin derived from the sea offers several appealing characteristics that are driving the market growth. With a new wave of natural ingredients and natural products, consumer expectations and perceptions are altering the food and beverage business. Phycocyanin is a blue colourant that is obtained from natural resources and provides natural alternatives to blue colourants on the global market. Over the projection period, phycocyanin is expected to see a jump in demand due to rising market demand for natural ingredients.
The US Food and Drug Administration has approved phycocyanin, a member of the phycobilli protein family, for use in food and beverage products. Food manufacturers are urged to employ phycocyanin instead of synthetic blue colours, which is propelling the phycocyanin market forward. Phycocyanin is known for its brilliant to dark blue colour, but it also has anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effects, which has created a health halo around its use. The rising frequency of various diseases around the world, particularly in developed countries, is raising health concerns and awareness, which is expected to drive up market demand for phycocyanin.

A pandemic such as COVID-19 has not only affected the smooth operations of food supply chains but also resulted in food insecurity conditions in several nations. Manufacturers working in the sector are facing challenges in regards to operations, supply chain, training, safety, emergency responses, awareness, incident management, recreating business models, digitalization, and other unanticipated impacts. Alcohol, a major component in the beverage industry is facing a devastating effect of a pandemic. Around 13% to 15% of the craft beer sector in the world is in the process of shutting up shop, and the wine industry is in severe distress. Besides, shortage of raw materials caused to shut down of many small to medium food processing companies around the world Phycocyanin Market Segment Overview
Based on Application, Food & Beverages is one of the largest segments in the global Phycocyanin market. To promote the use of phycocyanin in confectionaries, ice creams, and beverages, manufacturers are targeting stakeholders in the food and beverage industry. Because phycocyanin is more stable than other natural blue colourants, it is increasingly being used in alcoholic beverages by stakeholders in the food and beverage industry. Manufacturers are ramping up production of indoor-grown, high-quality, and pure phycocyanin as the fast-growing food and beverage industry expands. They are achieving this by growing their spirulina algae in custom-growing facilities, which allows them to extract five times more algae than collecting phycocyanin from open pond systems, which is also a cost-effective solution.
