Due to its antibacterial properties, the substance is frequently employed as a food preservative and shelf-life extender. The market for natural ingredients is anticipated to increase due to growing awareness of the negative effects of chemical pesticides and a rise in the desire for environmentally friendly crop disease management techniques.


The substance is primarily used in fruit and vegetable coatings, seed coatings, and as a fertilizer to limit pesticide release, which in turn promotes plant immunity and increases plant output. The substance also has antibacterial and antifungal qualities that are very efficient against diseases carried by seeds. It preserves seed characteristics by creating physical barriers surrounding the seed surface during seed treatment.


Furthermore, due to its effects on hypocholesterolemia, the product is now extensively used as a dietary supplement for weight loss. Rising youth health concerns have sparked demand for dietary supplements, particularly in the U.S. and European nations.


This need will increase product market demand and so probably contribute to the overall size of the market throughout the projected period. In addition, the food and beverage industry's demand is anticipated to be significantly influenced by its capacity to boost immunity, lower blood sugar, and lower blood pressure.


Shrimp, crabs, prawns, lobsters, and other aquatic creatures contain chitosan, a long-chain polymer. Due to its utilization in several end-user sectors, such as water treatment, healthcare, food & beverage, cosmetics, and others, the global market is expanding. Improvements in functional materials have also led to better clinical results. A naturally occurring substance with high bioactivity, biocompatibility, and bioavailability is chitosan. It has been demonstrated that adding chitosan to traditional medicine dramatically boosts its ability to fight infections.
