According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Indian Shrimp Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the Indian shrimp market reached a volume of 0.74 Million Tons in 2019. Shrimp is one of the most commonly consumed seafood across the globe. It is an invertebrate marine animal that belongs to the largest class of crustaceans called Malacostraca. It has a laterally compressed and elongated body with long antennae and legs. It is widely available in freshwater lakes and streams, and deep and shallow waters. It contains low saturated fat content while being a rich source of proteins, selenium, copper, iron, phosphorus, antioxidants, magnesium and vitamin B. As a result, its regular consumption is often associated with numerous health benefits, including low levels of blood pressure, weight loss management, improved bone and brain health and reduced risks of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs).
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.
Indian Shrimp Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the easy availability of disease-free and healthy shrimp in India. The country has a long coastline and favorable geographical conditions suited for shrimp culture. This, along with the easy availability and affordability of land and labor across the country and the relatively lower shrimp production costs, has led India to become one of the largest shrimp exporters and the primary source of frozen shrimp products across the globe, especially in the United States and European Union. The increasing demand for shrimp products on the global levels is, therefore, providing a thrust to the domestic market growth. Moreover, rapid urbanization and the growing popularity of regional as well as international cuisines across India have led the masses to incorporate shrimp in their daily diets. This is further supported by the increasing awareness regarding the numerous health benefits offered by its consumption. Moreover, there has been a rising demand for ready-to-eat food products due to the hectic lifestyles led by the majority of the population and their shifting dietary preferences. This, coupled with the inflating disposable incomes of individuals, has facilitated the uptake of frozen and processed shrimp products across the country. Furthermore, the Government of India is undertaking various initiatives to encourage organic shrimp farming practices in an attempt to reduce the environmental impact of shrimp aquaculture, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to exhibit moderate growth during 2020-2025.
