Top Companies in the Shrimp Market

The global shrimp market reached a value of US$ 62.8 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 84.2 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during 2022-2027. As per the analysis by the IMARC Group, the top manufacturers in the shrimp market are continuously innovating along the entire production and marketing chain to meet the increasing consumer expectations regarding product wholesomeness, quality, and sustainability. Production technology continues to be mostly extensive to semi-extensive with improving standardization of procedures from artisanal to industrial scale. In line with this, shrimps are more prone to periodic outbreaks of strong diseases and health management problems that disrupt supply chains and potential investors. In order to curb this challenge, key players are developing newer vaccines and adopting proactive alternatives, such as improved biosecurity, genetic selection measures, better pathogen detection, effective use of immunostimulants and probiotics. Although the shrimp industry is based on a single species with few genetically selected and improved lines, the producers are still aiming for additional genetic gains to significantly enhance production through a combination of traditional and novel technologies.

These include selective breeding, genome-based genetic selection, and advanced genome editing tools, like clustered regularly inter-spaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALEN). Some of the other methods being undertaken by shrimp farmers to expand global production include the development of new locations, intensification of existing technologies, and reusing water with multi-phased production strategies and nursery systems. Apart from this, the knowledge about nutritional needs of shrimps is also crucial for an organic and quality produce. Key players are educating the growers regarding the importance of nutrition management with better understanding of the relevance of gut health. They are also shedding light on the advancements in novel ingredients, feed manufacturing processes, and functional feeds with enhanced delivery. Other than this, the growing prominence of shrimp as a value-added convenient food product in the fast-food sector has encouraged manufacturers to apply modified atmosphere packaging solutions to extend the product shelf life, thereby making the transportation and storage easier. Leading players, particularly in the Asian region, are also currently trying to expand shrimp farming practices and export activities to other countries through several shrimp farming development programs, which is providing a competitive edge to the market players.
