Traditionally, squalene was obtained from specific shark liver oil which is found deep in the sea. Shark liver oil contains a very high amount of pure squalene that has high nutrient content. However, over-exploitation of this aquatic animal has led the species to the verge of extinction owing to which regulations regarding obtaining squalene have become strict. Thus, alternative natural sources such as olive oil, sugarcane, palm oil, amaranth seed, wheat germs, and rice bran are now used for producing squalene. North America and Europe have largely adopted vegetable oil based squalene but shark oil is still used in some parts of Asia Pacific region. Vegetable oil based squalene is expected to generate revenues exceeding USD 175 million by 2025.
