They help maintain healthy eyesight, stimulate brain growth, promote heart health, and improve the overall immune system. Their consumption is rising in Japan as seafood plays a pivotal role in traditional cuisine and represents one of the major sources of animal protein.

Japan Frozen Seafood Market Trends:

There is a considerable rise in the demand for affordable and healthier meals across Japan. This, along with a significant increase in the geriatric population, represents one of the key factors strengthening the growth of the market. Apart from this, the rising health consciousness among the masses and the growing trend of ready-to-eat (RTE) frozen meals are creating a favorable market outlook. Moreover, frozen seafood products are widely utilized in the preparation of sashimi, nigiri, tendon, and kaki fry. Furthermore, the rising cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are positively influencing the sales of frozen seafood products via online distribution channels in the country. This can be accredited to stringent lockdown regulations in numerous cities and the easy availability of high-speed internet connections. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 968.6 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 2.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
