Among application, functional food application segment held the highest market share in the global phosphatidylserine market in 2020 and is expected to keep its dominance during the forecast period. The demand for functional food is increasing in foods and beverages industry. As functional food offers number of health benefits such as improving joint health, weight loss, bone and muscle strength, etc. The functional food products can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes by enhancing digestion. They also aid in decreasing wrinkles. Functional foods promote optimal health by reducing the risk of non-communicable diseases, boosting metabolism, improving nutrition absorption, aiding better digestion, and helping lose weight. Thus, growing consumption of functional food is expected to boost the demand for phosphatidylserine during the forecast period.
Global Phosphatidylserine Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic had a limited impact on the phosphatidylserine market. Limited economic impacts were observed in the phosphatidylserine industry due to agility of producers, supply chain contributors, and retailers; but also to the rapid and broad response by governments. According to OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), In 2020, close to 800 measures were undertaken by the governments in 54 developed and emerging countries aimed to avoid aggravating disruptions, provide relief to affected producers and consumers, or bolster the recovery of affected production activities.
The global economy is affected by coronavirus pandemic, as governments across the globe imposed lockdown measures to curb the movement of people. Various governments across the globe have opted for lockdowns due to which industrial activities halted and international travel was ceased. These measures are having a significant toll on almost all industrial sectors. Factories and manufacturing facilities have faced supply chain breakdowns and labor shortages.

Phosphatidylserine is a type of molecule known as a phospholipid that makes up cell membranes and is abundant in the nervous system. Phosphatidylserine is a fatty substance called a phospholipid. Phosphatidylserine covers and protects the cells of brain and carries messages between them. Phosphatidylserine plays an important role in keeping mind and memory sharp of human beings. Phosphatidylserine is naturally present in various plants and animals such as cows, Antarctic mackerel, krill oil, fish roe, soybean, sunflower, milk, etc.
The demand for Phosphatidylserine is expected to increase during forecast period owing to its benefits in cognitive health. It has applications in the food industry and the pharmaceutical industry. In the pharmaceutical industry, phosphatidylserine is used for treating dementia, hyperactivity and other brain-related disorders such as Alzheimer's etc. In many developed countries such as U.S, Germany, France, and Russia. Phosphatidylserine is taken to try to prevent memory loss and mental decline that may occur as people get older. Several studies suggest that it may boost your brain power. People who took the supplement scored higher on short-term memory, mood, and concentration tests.
Phosphatidylserine is high in neutral oil and fatty acids, and produced in low purity that has an off-flavour to it. These products have limited application in the functional food segment and other industries. And, in order to utilise phosphatidylserine, high-grade purity product is required. Purification processes such as ultrafiltration, supercritical CO2 extraction, and solvent extraction are utilised to reach such high purity levels for use in dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, etc.
Phosphatidylserine has various effects on the whole body but it is mainly focused on the brain and central nervous system. It's particularly vital for the proper functioning of nerve cells within the brain, helping to transmit messages between them. In the brain, if serine level drops down, the body tries to balance it by the high level of activity.
