Chitosan powder is obtained by treating the shells of crabs and other crustaceans with an alkaline substance such as sodium hydroxide. The shell waste contains a high amount of chitin which is further processed to manufacture glucosamine, chitosan, and other by-products. It is a deacetylated form of chitin. Chitosan powder is a biopolymer and has many beneficial properties such as biorenewability, biodegradability, biocompatibility, nontoxicity, and bioadhesivity, and thus, has applications in personal care and cosmetic industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and various other industries. Chitosan powder is obtained from various sources such as crabs, lobster, shrimp, etc.

The Biodegradable Property Increases the Demand for Chitosan Powder

The occurrence of obesity and the overweight problem is increasing at a high rate across various regions of the world. According to WHO, in 2016, 13% of the adults were obese, and 39% of the adults were overweight. Therefore, consumers are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prefer the use of dietary supplements to fulfill the nutritional requirement of the body. The increase in weight management problems is expected to serve as a driver for the chitosan powder market. Chitosan powder is a dietary fiber and is used as a weight loss dietary supplement. Some studies have shown that chitosan helps to reduce fat absorption, and thus, can reduce the overall calorie content which helps in weight management. Therefore, the increase in obesity and overweight problems are anticipated to increase the chitosan powder market.
