The growing demand for nutraceuticals to produce numerous supplements and the utilization of algae extract in cosmetic products enhance the market growth.

The potential applications of algae enhance the demand in the market due to its therapeutic benefits, such as antivirals, antimicrobials, and antifungal drug production in the pharmaceutical industry.
