Segmental Analysis:

The Global Seaweed Market is segmented by type, form, and end use.

By type, the global seaweed market is segmented into red seaweed, green seaweed, and brown seaweed. Of these, red seaweed holds the dominant share in the global seaweed market due to its widespread use in the food industry. Red seaweed contains a large amount of antioxidants, as well as vitamins and minerals, which is likely to make it one of the most popular supplements and food additives in the coming years. The demand for natural food supplements is growing rapidly among the urban population across the world, which is likely to be a major consumption channel for red seaweed over the forecast period. Red seaweed is also found to have beneficial properties in controlling blood sugar levels. The growing prevalence of diabetes across the world is likely to help the red seaweed market garner new end-use channels, as modern healthcare research is branching out into novel directions in order to make the most of the natural resources available to us.
