Global Aquaculture Market to Reach 116.6 Million Tons by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Consumption of Seafood

March 17, 2021 | Agriculture

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Aquaculture Market Report by Fish Type (Freshwater Fish, Molluscs, Crustaceans, and Others), Environment (Fresh Water, Marine Water, Brackish Water), Distribution Channel (Traditional Retail, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Specialized Retailers, Online Stores, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global aquaculture market size reached 79.3 Million Tons in 2023. Also known as aquafarming, aquaculture is the process of breeding, rearing, and harvesting fish, algae, mollusks, shellfish, and other aquatic organisms. It is generally practiced in controlled environments, such as lakes, oceans, rivers, ponds, and streams. It assists in food production, increasing the wild stock population, restoring threatened and endangered species population, and building aquariums and fish culture. Besides this, it aids in reducing waste creation and utilizing agricultural and natural resources optimally.

Global Aquaculture Market Trends:

A significant rise in the demand for seafood on account of the presence of high-quality proteins and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) represents one of the key factors favorably influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the rising demand for fish oil in various industries, such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and food and beverages (F&B), is also strengthening the growth of the market. Moreover, with the growing consciousness about the long-term benefits of adopting efficient aquaculture practices, fish breeders are adopting technologically advanced equipment to analyze fish behavior, monitor the water and manage the facility, which is further supporting the market growth. Looking forward, the market volume is projected to reach 116.6 Million Tons by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
