Chitin Market: Overview

Chitin is the one of the most abundant natural polymers, probably second after cellulose. Key sources are structural component of crustaceans and insects, and cell walls of fungi and yeast. Most notably and recently, shrimps and crabs have come to be a source. The market potential of chitin stems from advances in biopolymer processing. Remarkable crystallinity and mechanical strength of nanochitin is a case in point. Key characteristics that attract industry players to invest in the chitin market are its non-toxicity, non-allergic, anti-microbial, and bio-degradability. State-of-the art technologies has made nanomaterial processing of chitin a vast market avenue.

The wide range of applications in the chitin market are in packaging materials, membranes chemistry, and wastewater engineering. Chitin has gained popularity in heavy metal chelating of industrial wastewater, particularly since it is nontoxic. A very close counterpart is chitosan. Interestingly, end-use industries prefer this over chitin, especially due to the choice of the solvent.

The study leverages industry-standard tools and research analytics to understand the dynamics shaping the opportunities in the chitin market. It looks at the market potential of various end-use industries and recent research and development initiatives by various players.

Chitin Market: Competitive Analysis and Key Developments

Researchers exploring the potential of new materials in energy storage technologies have found chitin as a promising ingredient. In a recent study led by MIT, researchers tested chitin from waste shrimp shells it replace redox flow batteries. Specifically, the investigators tried to test its potential in vanadium redox flow battery chemistry. The demand for making vanadium flow batteries is a promising avenue for sustainable battery materials in the chitin market.

One of the authors of the research paper affirmed that though carbon electrodes have a better performance, chitin are derived from waste materials making them eco-friendly. Future studies in chitin-based electrodes are paving way for new avenues in the chitin market. Research in biomass-based materials for use in sustainable energy applications is likely to unlock new prospects in the market.
