The global aquafeed market size is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period of 2021-2030.

Aquafeeds are compounded meals formulated for aquatic animals by mixing various additives, raw materials and other supplements sourced from either synthetic or natural sources, depending upon the age of the animal and requirements of the species. High-quality aquafeeds offer a variety of benefits, including immune-resistance, growth, and nutrition to various aquatic animals than farm-made feed due to their need-specific and balanced composition.

 

GROWTH DRIVERS

Factors such as the rapidly surging direct seafood consumption due to the growing need for protein-rich diets among consumers around the globe, the expanding seafood trade and aquaculture production across different parts of the world, the rising demand for aquatic animal by-products in feed applications, especially in the developing economies, the increasing number of technological advancements in feed formulation and the increasing consumer awareness regarding quality of seafood products are primarily driving the growth of the global aquafeed market.

 

The consumption of seafood is witnessing a steep rise all across the globe, majorly due to the rising awareness regarding the potential health benefits associated with fish and other aquaculture species. Fishes have low-fat content compared to other forms of meat, are rich sources of proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fats, which help maintain a nutrient diet. The soaring population and disposable incomes along with rapid urbanization in the developing nations are also leading to a worldwide growth in fish and aquaculture production. Fisheries and aquaculture are progressively becoming a predominant source of protein, well-being and livelihood of a major portion of the population around the world. This rise in the consumption of seafood and the overall seafood business is giving a major thrust to the global aquacultural activities, aiding in the growth of supply and the overall market for aquafeed across the globe.

 

Additionally, the implementation of stringent regulatory frameworks for fishing industry production, usage, and marketing from various authorities and organizations across different regions is also growing, making the aquafeed market highly organized and modern. Few years back, the U.S. put a ban on the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in feed additives for aquatic animals. Consequently, the demand for aquafeed has grown, which is aiding in fueling the growth of the overall market significantly.

 

Furthermore, other factors such as the emergence of new species in aquaculture, the escalating fish farming, the expanding aquaculture industry, the availability of vast arable area to cultivate the main ingredients used for the production of aquafeed and the limited accessibility of marine feed resources are expected to further augment the growth of the global aquafeed market during the forecast period.

However, the increasing raw material costs is expected to hamper the growth of the market up to certain extent during the period of forecast.
