Shrimp feed is produced so as to fulfil the nutritional requirements of farmed shrimps. It assists in regulating adequate levels of vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and fatty acids amongst the shrimps. The common components of shrimp feed include fish oil, fish and squid meal, cereal flour and various additives. Shrimp feed helps to improve production cycles, harvest per unit area and profitability while reducing environmental contamination caused by shrimp farming. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Shrimp Feed Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the shrimp feed market reached a value of US$ 4.6 Billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% during 2010-2017.

One of the primary factors catalysing the growth of the shrimp feed market is changing dietary patterns coupled with the rising health awareness amongst consumers. This has led to a tremendous demand for healthy shrimp, thereby positively influencing the expansion of the market.
