The key sources of astaxanthin are natural and synthetic. The natural sources studied in the report are yeast microbes, plants and marine. The natural source segment captured the biggest share in 2019 and will project a higher growth over the analysis period. This can be due to the mounting consumer awareness about food safety and the resultant surge in the preference for natural ingredients.

Depending on form, the global astaxanthin market research report can be considered for both dry and liquid products.
