Global Chitin Market: Snapshot

Across the agricultural field, chitin are used as a defense mechanism for plants as they can help in controlling diseases as well as works as fertilizers and increases yield. On the other hand, industrial players utilize chitin for various purposes including food processing. One of the active area of research is on how chitin affects the immunity system of animals and plants, promising to work as a vaccine adjuvant owing to its properties of stimulating the immunity response. As per the findings of this business publication, the demand in the global chitin market will propel at a formidable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.

A recent research study from the University of Havana has showcased that chitin extracted from the lobster waste can be used for the generation of chitosan and chitin, both of them that are highly useful agricultural and biomedicine purpose. The researchers had used these compounds for the production of surgical materials that have shown strong healing as well as antiseptic attributes apart from an ability to enhance the rate of germination in seeds. Chitin can be used to cover the lint and treads and it is found that they remain unmodified after sterilization.

Chitin can also be understood as a polymer that is fairly common in the environment around us, found frequently in physical structures of plants and animals, only behind cellulose. This means they can also function as renewable resources that can be swiftly extracted from insects, arthropods, molluscs, arachnids, fungus and algae.
