Saudi Arabia Aquaculture Market to Reach 796,500 Tons by 2032, Bolstered by Increasing Seafood Consumption

January 18, 2022 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Saudi Arabia Aquaculture Market Report by Fish Type (On the Basis of Production, On the Basis of Consumption), Environment (Marine Water, Fresh Water, Brackish Water), Distribution Channel (Traditional Retail, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Channel, and Others) 2024-2032,” the Saudi Arabia aquaculture market reached a production volume of 429,300 Tons in 2023. Aquaculture refers to the practice of breeding, raising and harvesting aquatic organisms under human supervision in a tank, floating cage, pond, or any other water body. This farming procedure involves interventions in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, and protection from predators. Over the years, the aquaculture industry has witnessed rapid growth in Saudi Arabia as the country is strategically located with a 2,600 km long coastline that is home to a wide range of fish and other marine species and is suitable for aquaculture development.

Saudi Arabia Aquaculture Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising seafood consumption in Saudi Arabia, as aquaculture production fulfills the partial domestic demand of seafood in the country. Moreover, the rising per capita income, changing lifestyles, and increasing demand for high-quality protein-rich food have also expanded the aquaculture industry. Besides this, the market is further propelled by the rising health consciousness among individuals as seafood is considered a rich source of protein, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, its consumption is associated with numerous health benefits, including enhanced digestion, improved skin health, and strong metabolism. Furthermore, the government of Saudi Arabia is undertaking various initiatives to raise domestic seafood production and upgrade the infrastructure to encourage industrial sea farming in the country, which represents another growth-inducing factor. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market production volume to reach 796,500 Tons by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.9% during 2024-2032.
