The global crustaceans market size reached US$ 17.2 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 22.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.86% during 2023-2028. The rising popularity of crustaceans as a nutrient-rich food among the health-conscious consumers, continual innovations in crustacean processing and packaging, and easy product availability across online and offline organized retail channels represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Crustaceans, a diverse group of arthropods belonging to the subphylum Crustacea, are primarily aquatic animals and are found in terrestrial environments as well. Crustaceans typically possess an exoskeleton made of chitin, providing support and protection, and have joint appendages for functions like locomotion and feeding. In addition to this, they possess gills for extracting oxygen from water and two pairs of antennae on their heads for sensing their environment. Their feeding strategies encompass filter feeding, scavenging, and predation, utilizing specialized appendages or mouthparts to capture prey or gather food particles from water. Crustaceans have a high economic importance since they are harvested for human consumption and are cultivated through aquaculture to meet the growing seafood demand. While several crustacean species including shrimp, crab, and lobster are considered to be global delicacies, they also provide nutritional value as a source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids, making them a beneficial addition to a balanced diet. Some of the most common crustaceans include organisms, such as crabs, lobsters, shrimp, and barnacles.
Crustaceans Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the augmenting demand for crustacean products in culinary applications. This can be attributed to the rising popularity of crustaceans as a nutrient-rich food among health-conscious consumers. In line with this, the inflating disposable incomes along with higher economic growth in emerging economies are leading to a higher demand for premium and luxury seafood products, thereby fueling` the market. Moreover, rapid expansion of aquaculture and the development of advanced techniques and technologies are resulting in increased production and availability of farmed crustaceans, which, in turn, is providing an impetus to the market. In addition to this, continual innovations in crustacean processing and packaging such as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and individually quick frozen (IQF) techniques contribute to better preservation and extended shelf life, which is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor for the market. The market is further driven by the increasing influx of tourists and international travelers to coastal regions, which is leading to an increased consumption of local seafood, including crustaceans. Apart from this, aggressive marketing and promotional activities by seafood companies, industry associations, and government agencies highlighting the nutritional benefits and culinary versatility of crustaceans are creating a positive market outlook. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include easy product availability across online and offline organized retail, implementation of aquaculture traceability systems by key players, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
