Asia Pacific to Dominate the Aquaculture Market Through 2023

Owing to the growing demand for aquaproducts for their protein-rich content, small-scale farming is adopted by developing regions such as Asia Pacific, South America, and Africa.


Northrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2019 -- The global aquaculture market size is projected to grow from USD 30.1 billion in 2018 to USD 42.6 billion by 2023, recording a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. The aquaculture market is driven by increasing consumption of aquaproducts, rise in cage aquafarming, and the decline in the value of captured fishes. Furthermore, advancements in aquaculture technology and seafood trade are also driving the demand for aquaculture products. However, stringent food safety regulations associated with the consumption of aquaculture food products is projected to hinder the market growth.

The pharmaceuticals segment in the aquaculture market is projected to be the fastest-growing segment, in terms of value

The demand for pharmaceutical products in aquaculture has increased due to their role in promoting growth and preventing diseases in fish. Further, increasing R&D in the pharmaceuticals sector has facilitated higher acceptance of drugs, medicated feed, and vaccines, specifically in developed countries such as the US and Canada. Additionally, there has been a growing adoption of in-feed medication for fish to prevent the large-scale spread of diseases across Europe, given the limited use of antibiotics in the region.

The aquatic animals segment is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The aquatic animals segment is further divided into crustaceans, mollusks, finfishes, and others. The growing demand for protein-rich food in developing countries such as India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Vietnam is driving the demand for aquatic animals. Additionally, the government support for fish aquafarming, specifically in Asia Pacific and Africa is growing to mitigate poverty levels, as aquaculture is an important source of employment in the coastal regions of these countries; hence, several aquaproduct manufacturers are encouraged to invest in these two regions.
