North America Canned Seafood Market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 2.25% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

Key Highlights

  • North America is one of the leading consumers of canned seafood in the world. Though rising sustainability and health concerns have led to a decline in the amount of canned seafood consumed over the years this trend is yet to impact the growth in terms of market value, which can mainly be attributed to rising prices. The market is expected to keep growing at a modest rate over the forecast period.
  • Though Bumble Bee Foods, LLC one of the leading companies in the region had filed bankruptcy in late 2019 it does not indicate an unfavorable marketplace as at that time the company was facing criminal fines and civil lawsuits to a federal price-fixing case. In fact, the dramatic increase in the presence of branded private label products owned by major retailers in the regions such as Walmart and Costco & various small players, in the market reflects the growing potential of canned seafood in the region.
