Report Scope & Overview:
The Squalene Market size was valued at USD 136 million in 2022 and is expected to grow to USD 302.29 million by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 10.5 % over the forecast period of 2023-2030.
Squalene is a natural organic compound that is commonly used in the production of cosmetics, dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals. It is primarily sourced from shark liver oil, but there are also plant-based alternatives available.
It is a saturated oil that is naturally produced by the skin of human beings and other animal and plant sources. Squalene is used as a moisturizing ingredient and used in skin care products like anti-aging creams, lip balm, sunscreen, moisturizing creams, etc. Using squalene in cosmetic products, makes fine lines and dry patches less visible and makes skin more supple and elastic. Despite being oily, it can also be used for acne-prone or sensitive skin.
Adding more hydrogen to squalene turns it into a more solid squalene. This process is called as hydrogenation process. The antioxidants in the squalene oils and creams fight skin damage and free radicals, which can accelerate aging. Squalene also acts as a detoxifier. Squalene plays a key role in the lubrication and protection of skin from UV damage. Squalene boosts hydration more than calming dry skin. Squalene is mostly extracted from olive oil and shark liver oil
Increasing popularity of squalene in nutraceuticals
Rising demand for a natural substituent in the personal care and cosmetics industry
Favorable properties of squalene make it the most preferred emollient
Absence of toxicity
Increasing demand for squalene in several vaccines
Continuously rising prevalence of cancer and cardiovascular disorders
Favorable properties of squalene such as low odor emission, translucid in nature and provide moisture to the skin make it the most preferred emollient across the globe. This factor drives the market exponentially. The absence of toxicity is the most important property which makes squalene a widely used element in the personal care industry. Nowadays there is a trend of using natural ingredients in the production of personal care and cosmetics products. As squalene is naturally produced by the skin of human beings and other plant sources the availability of squalene is abundant due to which the market for squalene is boosting rapidly.
Limitation on shark killing
Rising regulation on marine animal protection activities
Squalene is mostly extracted from shark liver oil but the stringent regulation imposed on the killing of sharks restricts the supply of squalene which further hampers the growth of the squalene market. For instance, according to the International Trade of Endangered Species report, “around five species of sharks are on the verge of extinction”
Increase in R&D activities
Rise in the potential application of squalene in various End-use industries
New renewable source (Tobacco Crop) for the production of squalene
Volatile raw material prices
Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on various markets worldwide. The squalene market is no exception to this. This market witnessed both positive as well as negative impacts.
With the virus spreading rapidly, the demand for vaccines has skyrocketed. One particular ingredient that has seen a surge in demand during the pandemic is squalene, which is extracted from shark liver oil. Pharmaceutical companies across the globe have been relying on squalene to develop coronavirus vaccines. Squalene is considered a lifesaver for humans during this pandemic as it acts as a boosting agent in vaccines. It is also known as an adjuvant, which makes vaccines more effective and improves the immune system of human beings. The exponential increase in demand for squalene during COVID-19 is due to its crucial role in the development of at least five of the 202 COVID-19 vaccines.
However, the pandemic has disrupted the supply chain and demand for squalene, leading to significant changes in the market. One of the main factors affecting the squalene market is the disruption of the supply chain. The closure of borders and restrictions on international trade has made it difficult for companies to obtain the raw materials needed to produce squalene. This has led to a shortage of squalene in the market, which has driven up prices and made it difficult for companies to meet demand.
Impact of Russia-Ukraine War:
The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has had a significant impact on various industries, including the squalene market. The war has disrupted the supply chain of squalene, particularly from Ukraine, which is a major producer of plant-based squalene. The conflict has caused a decrease in production and exports, leading to a shortage of squalene in the market. This shortage has resulted in an increase in prices, making it difficult for manufacturers to source the necessary amount of squalene for their products. Furthermore, the conflict has also affected the demand for squalene in the region. The instability and uncertainty caused by the war have led to a decrease in consumer spending, which has impacted the sales of cosmetics and dietary supplements that contain squalene.
Impact of Recession:
The global recession has had a significant impact on the squalene market. The economic downturn has caused a decline in demand for squalene-based products, leading to a decrease in production and sales. The recession has also affected the supply chain of squalene. Many suppliers have reduced their production or even shut down their operations due to the decrease in demand. This has resulted in a shortage of squalene in the market, leading to an increase in prices.

Europe region held the largest revenue share of about 32. 6% in 2022 and is expected to show lucrative growth during the forecast period. This is owing to the large-scale production of olive oil. As olive oil is the major plant-based source of squalene there is increased demand for squalene from the countries like UK, Italy, Spain, France, and Germany. In Europe, manufacturers of squalene prefer plant-based sources over shark-based sources to produce squalene which helps to drive the market for squalene in this region.
The Asia Pacific region is also anticipated to show exponential growth with the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to an increase in consumption of squalene in the various End-use industries such as cosmetics, personal care, and pharmaceuticals. Cheap labor costs, low manufacturing costs, and low cost of maintenance make the Asia Pacific region an attractive market for competitors to start production activities in this region. This factor boosts the squalene market in this region.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
