Global Aquaculture Market to Reach 95.6 Million Tons by 2027, Impelled by Increasing Consumption of Seafood

March 17, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Aquaculture Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global aquaculture market size reached 72.4 Million Tons in 2021. 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.

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.

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 value is projected to reach 95.6 Million Tons by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
