The global clams, cockles, ark shells market is expected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% during 2023-2028.
Clams, cockles, and ark shells refer to a variety of marine bivalve mollusks that are mostly found in freshwater or coastal ecosystems. These bivalves have two shells connected by a flexible ligament, which cover and shield the creature's soft and edible parts. Clams, cockles, and ark shells act as a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and essential minerals. As a result, they help in treating acid refluxes, soothing abdominal pain, improving heart health, and mitigating the risk of cancer. The global market for clams, cockles, and ark shells is primarily driven by the expansion of the bivalve aquaculture sector.
The growing number of trade activities across the globe pertaining to various bivalves and thick-shelled seafood variants is augmenting the market growth. Furthermore, several upgradations in the supply chain systems of fresh, canned, and frozen clams, cockles, and ark shells are also driving the product demand. Additionally, the increasing penetration of global food trends, along with the growing number of eateries serving gourmet and specialized seafood cuisines, is further propelling the market growth. In line with this, the changing consumer tastes and preferences towards new varieties of seafood, particularly across North America and the Middle East region, are also catalyzing the demand for clams, cockles, and ark shells. Several government bodies are undertaking numerous initiatives for the domestication and in-house cultivation of clams, cockles, and ark shells in artificial marine-like environments to cater to their rising consumption demand. Moreover, the growing adoption of advanced aquaculture water treatment systems and recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) to enhance the farming of various marine species, such as clams, cockles, and ark shells, will continue to drive the market growth in the coming years.
