The Personal Care and Cosmetics Microalgae Market report forecasts revenue will grow to $76.5m by 2031, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%.

Increasing use of spirulina in the treatment of skin issues such as tanning, ageing and pigment abnormalities, along with rising use of microalgae in the production of skin whitening, anti-aging, and pigmentation reduction cosmetic products will drive market growth.

In addition, consumers are switching towards vegan cosmetic products owing to growing awareness regarding animal welfare.

Microalgae extracts have emerged as a suitable vegan substitute for producing cosmetic products, which will create scope for growing applications in cosmetics sector, said FMI.

Market players are also looking to capitalise on anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of microalgae for treating oral disorders.

Algal extracts are now used in creating toothpastes, functional chewing gums, and mouthwash as gelling and water binding properties of hydrocolloids are becoming popular in dentistry.

The US is predicted to account for around 89% of the North America market by 2031, driven by rising popularity of vegan and organic products and increasing consumer willingness to buy premium products.

In the UK, growing consumer inclination towards organic and natural personal care products in the UK along with the focus on maintaining transparency in raw material and production methods among manufacturers will boost demand there.
