As a result, individuals are becoming inclined toward vegan seafood alternatives, with low calories and high protein content.

Global Plant-based Seafood Market Trends:
The global plant-based seafood market is primarily driven by the growing trend of veganism. The increasing concerns regarding the protection of aquatic animals have also impelled individuals to replace seafood with plant-based alternatives in their diets. Besides this, the growing prevalence of chronic gastrointestinal disorders due to the presence of mercury and toxic pollutants in seafood is also encouraging consumers to shift to vegan alternatives. Several governmental bodies are also undertaking initiatives to promote the consumption of plant-based seafood products to conserve marine ecosystems. Furthermore, the rising preference for frozen, canned, and ready-to-eat products due to rapid urbanization, hectic lifestyles and the inflating disposable incomes of the masses is escalating the demand for plant-based seafood across the globe. On account of these factors, the market is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
