Prawn Market Trends:
The rising demand for seafood due to changing consumer dietary preferences is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Prawn is a versatile cooking ingredient that is widely used in pizzas, spring rolls, biryani, paella, dumplings, curries, pasta, bisque, cakes, risotto, and tacos. In addition to this, the widespread product utilization in ready-to-eat (RTE) meals due to its longer shelf-life and high nutrient contents is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing consumer awareness regarding various product health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, boosting brain function, promoting healthy vision, maintaining blood sugar levels, strengthening the immune system, and minimizing the risk of anemia, infections, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the recent development of genetically-modified prawns, which are disease-resistant, climate tolerant, and offer better meat quality, is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the adoption of smart aquaculture farming practices that utilize sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) technology to monitor and optimize prawn production is favoring the market growth. Moreover, the implementation of various government policies to promote sustainable aquaculture and provide subsidies to farmers for prawn export are creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, easy product availability across e-commerce platforms, and the growing demand for exotic cuisines, are anticipated to drive market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach 9.7 Million tons by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.2% during 2023-2028.
