Preventive care is becoming increasingly popular among consumers as a tool to support them in leading healthier lifestyles. Because they are a great source of vitamins, proteins, and minerals and offer health advantages for conditions like cancer, asthma, depression, and others, omega-3 supplements are becoming increasingly popular.

Market Dynamic


Rising consumer preference towards healthy food supplements is the key growth driver for the global fish oil supplement market. Also, recent studies have shown that consuming foods rich in fish oil supplements has led to protecting the skin and the teeth and helping build muscles. As a result, the demand for fish oil supplements is expected to rise and, in turn, bolster the overall fish oil supplement market.


Stringent restrictions regulating the fishing sector and environmental policies regarding fish catches could restrain the EPA/DHA (Omega 3) ingredients market growth. These constraints will limit product demand, affecting product sales and producer income. Countries such as China and Peru have imposed very strict rules on the number of fish catches to maintain an ecological balance. This will negatively affect fish oil production.


Omega-3 fatty acid, found in fish oil, is very important for older people because it lowers their risk of chronic diseases. Most importantly, older people want to take steps to avoid problems with their eyes, brain, and joints. As more people learn that omega-3 is good for their health, they will buy it. Since many people are expected to die in the next 65 years, the market for omega-3 fish oil will grow a lot.

COVID-19 Impact

Customers now prioritize prevention over reaction as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Immune health, heart health, and general well-being are becoming more and more important to consumers. The AHA states that people with a stroke and those with heart conditions such as high blood pressure and congenital heart defects may be more susceptible to consequences if they contract COVID-19. The demand for supplements to reduce the risk of heart failure surged, which helped boost the sales of the products.
