The global aquaculture market was valued at US$176.45 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.46% to reach a market size of US$219.42 billion by the year 2022.

Aquaculture is the process of farming fish, algae, mollusks, aquatic plants, and other aquatic animals in order to improve production in the form of feeding and regular stocking. Aquaculture incorporates the creation of fish from incubation center fish and shellfish which are developed to market sizes in lakes, tanks, ponds, or raceways. The fish and shellfish are discharged into the wild to reconstruct wild populations or their habitats such as clam reefs.

Market Outlook

The growing concern and awareness about the health benefits and nutritional value associated with seafood surge its consumption. Moreover, rising demand for fish oil in various industries like food, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and dietary supplements among others further contribute to the market growth significantly. Owing to the lack of naturally available varieties of fisheries harvested in natural environments, aquaculture is gaining popularity globally. Moreover, increasing disposable incomes and increasing urbanization also impact market growth. However, government regulations regarding the trading of seafood can restrain market growth.

Geographic Outlook

Geographically, the APAC region is expected to grow at a high rate owing to the presence of countries that have a major population devouring seafood. Moreover, factors like suitable weather conditions, cheap labor, and abundant natural resources in various countries within the region further drive market growth.
