Indian Fish Market to Reach 29 Million Tons by 2027, Propelled by the Numerous Health Benefits Associated with the Consumption of Fish

September 06, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Indian Fish Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that Indian fish market size has reached 17.4 Million tons by 2021. Fish refers to a cold-blooded aquatic animal used for domestic consumption as well as for export purposes in India. India, with approximately 6% share, is contributing majorly to global fish production. The Indian fish industry plays a vital role due to the rising per capita consumption of fish, which can be further accredited to the changing lifestyle and the surging cost of meat. It also helps in providing employment, livelihood, and food security across the country. In recent years, the consumption of fish has gained momentum in India owing to the increasing awareness among individuals about fish as a healthy food with a high amount of digestible protein, PUFA, and cholesterol-lowering capability.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of the associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Indian Fish Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the numerous health benefits offered by it. For instance, the consumption of fish assists in reducing the risk of chronic illnesses and balancing hormone levels. Additionally, the increasing demand and consumption of fish, and canned and frozen fish products due to the significant growth of organized food retail is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the increasing number of individuals following pescetarianism and consuming vegetarian food and seafood is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, due to the possession of harmful pesticides and chemicals in meat and meat products, there is a noticeable shift of consumers from these food products to seafood, which is also propelling the market growth. Apart from this, the improving economic condition of the nation, along with the inflating income levels, is accelerating the product adoption rate across the country. Moreover, the focus of restaurants and seafood service providers on sustainable seafood options, including catfish and tilapia, is creating lucrative growth opportunities for the key players operating in the industry. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a volume of 29 Million Tons by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
