Global Salmon Market to Reach 4.3 Million Tons by 2028, Bolstered by Introduction of Innovative Packaging Formats

May 22, 2019

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Salmon Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global salmon market size reached 3.5 Million Tons in 2022. Salmon is one of the most popular and traded seafood species that belongs to the Salmonidae family. It is commonly found across the Northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Salmon is consumed by grilling, broiling, poaching, and pickling and can also be used in a wide variety of preparations. Salmon is rich in nutrients such as proteins, calcium, vitamins B3 and D, zinc, iodine, cholesterol, and omega-3 fatty acid. The presence of these nutrients is known to help in reducing the risk of cancer, improving cell function and lowering blood pressure levels.

Salmon Market Trends:

Salmon is considered a functional food that is used in an array of dishes, including pasta, sushi, burgers, salads, tartar sauce, and tacos. The growing disposable incomes and rising health consciousness have shifted the consumption patterns of individuals. An increasing number of consumers are now opting for lean meat and protein-rich foods like salmon in their daily diets, which is propelling the growth of the market. Besides this, with the growing working population and busy lifestyles, there has been an escalated demand for ready-to-cook and convenient food products like frozen and canned salmon. Furthermore, the introduction of innovative packaging formats by manufacturers like vacuum skin-packed salmon, which keeps the product fresh by eliminating contact with air, is also providing a positive outlook for the market. On account of these factors, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 4.3 Million Tons by 2028.
