Arachidonic acid is a long chain fatty acid which combined with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), helps in the improvement of an infant’s brain cells. Arachidonic acid is one of the most important acids belong to the omega 6 group. Arachidonic acids are stored in the cell membranes and send signals of adaptive changes in case of any damage done to the muscles. Lack of naturally forming arachidonic acids in the human body can be compensated through the intake of the same in form of tablets, injections and/or syrups.
Rising demand for arachidonic acid for healing critical injuries is expected to push the demand for the arachidonic acids market during the forecast period. Rising number of outdoor activities such as marathons, car racing, FIFA, and Olympics, where the risk of physical injuries is high, is expected to push the demand for arachidonic acids significantly. Further, rising road accidents are another major factor for the rapid growth in the demand for arachidonic acids at present. Additionally, rising awareness regarding child care and rising demand for baby care are some of the major factors aiding in the growth in the demand for arachidonic acids at present.
However, the production of arachidonic acids is attached with several intellectual property rights which might slow down the growth of the arachidonic acids market at present, thus restraining its growth.
However, the developing countries are expected to exhibit significant opportunities for the growth of the arachidonic acids market on account of rising number of sporting events, increasing child care awareness, increasing demand for baby products and rising awareness regarding the benefits offered by arachidonic acids.
