Food supplement is the fastest growing market due to rise in demand of the squalene products. The leading market players such as Amyris, Inc., and Croda International plc exhibit a strong brand image because of their diverse product offerings and hence, there is a low threat of new entrants in this market. In addition, requirement of high capital investment and difficulties in availability of raw material due to ban on shark fishing by government indicate a low threat of new entrants. These dominant players have captured major market share, thereby benefiting from the economy of scale. Furthermore, there is high cost of squalene produced from vegetable and there is high cost in research and development of synthetic biotechnology.

The demand for squalene from vegetable sources are projected to witness significant growth owing to the stringent government regulation regarding the ban on killing of shark. More and more companies are shifting towards organic sources to reduce the shark liver oil usage. Olives account for the highest share in the market while amaranth seeds are also good alternatives to olives.
