Global Lycopene Market Regional Outlook

Western Europe is estimated to be the leading producer in the lycopene market due to the high production volume of tomatoes, sufficient availability of technology for production, well-established & large healthcare industry and the presence of various developed economies with high awareness regarding health issues among people. Mexico is the largest exporter of tomatoes in the world as the country is not capable of processing or consuming the entire volume of tomatoes produced in the country. The U.S. is one of the top five tomato producers and needs to import a large volume of tomatoes to serve the domestic demand. Moreover, the country exhibits similar trends as the countries of Western Europe. China and India are among the leading global producers of tomatoes and both countries consume almost the entire volume produced. The healthcare and pharmaceutical industry of the Asia Pacific region is continuously growing at a significantly high pace.

Hence, the market in Asia Pacific is rapidly emerging, Latin America has high & untapped potential and the market in North America & Western Europe is large & steady, whereas there is low volume demand for lycopene from the countries of the MEA region.
