Large number of end-use applications, usage in preventive healthcare and nutraceuticals, and the growing importance of food quality and appearance have been of importance to the growth of the global carotenoids market. Carotenoids have high nutritious properties which help prevent fatal diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cataract, and tumor. Along with this, carotenoids contain a coloration pigment named carotene which is responsible for imparting red, yellow, and orange color in plants and animals thus increasing the need and usage of carotenoids especially for meat, meat products, and fish. The coloration of all animal products play a significant role in deciding their commercial value and thus the use of carotenoids for enhancing the appearance of the meat and fish products adds to the profitability of their suppliers. Hence, carotenoids will be viewed as a business opportunity in the next five years. As a result, many multinational players have entered into the production of varied types of carotenoids which can be used in different applications.
