Increasing health awareness and medicinal benefits of fatty acids are major growth drivers for the global fatty acids market.

North America is the largest market for fatty acids supplements globally. In 2013, it contributed to around 35% of the global consumption of omega 3 fatty acids. A major factor contributing to the growth of the omega-3 market in Europe is the increasing level of awareness about omega-3 in the region.
