Chitosan Market Overview:

Chitosan is a natural polysaccharide that exhibits biodegradability, non-toxicity, biocompatibility, hemostatic & adhesion, and penetration-enhancing properties. It also has antibacterial properties. Chitosan is a polysaccharide containing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and D-glucosamine linkages. It can make by treating shrimp with an alkaline substance such as sodium hydroxide. Chitosan is a by-product of fishing. Chitosan is a long-chain polymer found in aquatic animals such as shrimp, crab, shrimp, and lobster. Growing water treatment activities in the Asia-Pacific region and rising R&D investments for using chitosan in biomedical applications present lucrative opportunities for global chitosan market trends. The serious problem of heavy metal ion pollution from industrial wastewater and discharge into freshwater sources seriously threatens human health and the environment.
