The global squalene market size is expected to reach USD 307.88 million by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2023 to 2030

The industry is majorly driven by rising health awareness among the masses and continuously rising demand for squalene in personal care and cosmetics. Squalene acts as an emollient and provides nourishment to the skin. Moreover, it finds application in pharmaceuticals due to its ability to act as an anti-cancer and anti-oxidant agent.

Squalene is now largely produced from plants. It can be obtained from vegan sources such as sugarcane, rice bran, wheat germ, palm trees, and olives, with olives being the most popular. Although many businesses prefer squalene derived from plants, there is still a possibility that it comes from animals.

The demand for the product from shark liver oil is still in the market because of its low cost. In the cosmetics industry, products such as perfumes, lotions, eyeliners, and eye shadows, contain squalene in the range of 0.1% to 10%, whereas other products such as foundations and lipsticks contain 50% of the product.

The usage of synthetic and plant-based squalene has been motivated by the growing concerns over the extinction of sharks. To create squalene from plants or synthetic processing, manufacturers are engaged in research & development.

A supplier of natural component products for the cosmetics market, Sophim, invested USD 11.94 million to increase its production capacity. Two-thirds of the company's investment is to be made in Spain, where a production facility is planned to be built to treble the amount of squalene that can be extracted from olive oil.

With their antioxidant and anti-aging characteristics, squalene supplements can restore our skin, maintain cholesterol levels, and help in treating inflammation. They provide cells with the oxygen they require for proper metabolism and energy production at the cellular level.

These supplements are also known to combat viruses, colds, and infections, thus improving overall health and well-being. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have become more conscious about their health and immunity, thus increasing the demand for squalene in the pharmaceutical industry.
