Global Clams, Cockles, Ark Shells Market to Witness Moderate Growth During 2021-2026, Bolstered by Expansion of Bivalves Aquaculture Sector

Published on Feb 23, 2021

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Clams, Cockles, Ark Shells Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global clams, cockles, ark shells market size grew at a CAGR of 5% during 2015-2020. Clams, cockles, and ark shells are a type of marine bivalve mollusks that are found in estuaries or coastal ecosystems. The bivalves are two shells that are connected via a flexible ligament to protect and shield the soft and edible part of the creature. Clams, cockles, and ark shells are widely consumed worldwide as they are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, minerals, and vitamins. These essential nutrients aid in treating acid refluxes, improving heart health, soothing abdominal pain, and mitigating the risk of cancer.

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 Clams, Cockles, Ark Shells Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the expansion of the bivalve aquaculture sector. The increasing trade activities due to the growing variants of bivalves and thick-shelled seafood are also propelling the market growth. Apart from this, the busy lifestyles, rapid urbanization, and changing tastes and preferences of consumers have encouraged them to become more inclined toward the new seafood variants introduced in the market. Besides this, market players are continuously upgrading the supply chain of these seafood products to meet the growing demand from the eateries that offer gourmet and specialized cuisines and the rising global food trends. Furthermore, the rising adoption of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) and advanced aquaculture water treatment systems for improving the farming of various marine species is significantly bolstering the market growth.
