China aquafeed market reached a volume of around 26 Million Tons in 2020. The feeds are compounded meals available in various forms which provide nutrition in a stable and concentrated form, enabling the aquatic animals to grow efficiently and to their full potential. These blends are prepared and provided to the aquatic animals according to the specific requisite of the species and their age. Aquafeed plays a major role in providing normal growth and health of the aquatic animals.
China is currently the leading producer, consumer and exporter of aquafeed globally, more specifically, a leading producer of fish feed as well. The country has also dominated in the global aquaculture production for almost two decades. In 2019, coastal fishing ban in China led to a rise in the aquaculture and marine culture, which further increased the growth of the fish feed demand, thereby increasing the need to produce high quality and more formulated feeds in the country. Moreover, factors such as increasing seafood consumption in China coupled with the rising consumer awareness about the seafood quality are further escalating the demand for aquafeed in the region. In addition to this, the Chinese government is also taking various initiatives to strengthen the aquaculture industry in order to increase its production share in the international market. Currently, there is a huge demand of fish feed in the country. At times, country’s production of fishmeal is not enough for domestic use. It needs to be re-imported and cannot be exported to other countries, thereby rising the market of aquafeed in the country itself. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the China aquafeed market to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
