Japan Aquafeed Market to Reach 493,246 Tons by 2025, Stimulated by High Consumption of Seafood

April 21, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Japan Aquafeed Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the Japan aquafeed market size reached 372,303 Tons in 2019. Aquafeed is commercially prepared for providing balanced nutrition to farmed fishes and other aquatic animals. It is made using plants, fish oil, fish meal, marine animals, grain products, vegetable protein and terrestrial-based live feeds. It is generally available in the form of pellets, extruded bits or granules, and is a rich source of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, lipids and fats, and fiber. As these nutrients help aquatic animals in growing to their full potential, aquafeed is extensively utilized by aquafarmers in Japan to improve farm yields.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Japan Aquafeed Market Trends:

Japan has the highest average lifespan for both men and women, which can be accredited to the traditional Japanese diet that includes a large portion of seafood. This, in confluence with the increasing awareness among individuals about the health benefits of consuming seafood as compared to animal meat, is strengthening the aquafeed market in the country. Apart from this, the Government of Japan is undertaking initiatives to boost aquaculture output. For instance, it recently launched a ‘Fast Fish’ campaign to support the modernization of the fishing sector and increase the production of certified sustainable seafood in the country. Some of the other factors that are projected to fuel the market growth are rising fish mass production, increasing intensive farming, and improving stock and feed densities and feed management practices. Looking forward, the market volume is projected to reach 493,246 Tons by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
