Aquaculture is the process of farming of fish, algae, molluscs, aquatic plants and other aquatic animals in order to improve the production in the form of feeding and regular stocking. Aquaculture incorporates the creation of fish from incubation centre 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 populaces or their habitats such as clam reefs.

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.

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 urbanisation also impact the market growth. However, government regulations regarding trading of seafood can restrain the market growth.

Geographic Outlook

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