The aquaculture market was valued at USD 74 billion in 2021. It is expected to reach USD 105 billion by the end of 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period (2022-2028).

Westford USA, Jan. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Growing awareness regarding fish's health benefits is propelling aquaculture's market growth. Fish contain essential nutritional values such as proteins, vitamins, and micronutrients that promote better health. Moreover, increasing government support for promoting aquaculture coupled with the increasing population around the globe is again expected to foster market growth. In addition, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, such as genetic enhancements in finfish species, chromosomal manipulation, managing fish reproduction, and monitoring of parasite diseases in aquatic animals in off-shore and open oceans, are projected to drive the market further.

According to SkyQuest's global market study, 67% of seafood consumed in 2028 will be farm-raised to meet increased demand from regions such as Asia Pacific, where the consumption will increase to nearly 75%. Such a positive factor is expected to drive exponential growth for the global aquaculture market.  

Growing Preference for Organic Aquaculture Emerges as the Key Trend in Global Aquaculture Market

As per SkyQuest's analysis, organic aquaculture is an emerging trend that accounts for 18% of the global aquaculture industry and is predicted to account for 22.4% market share by 2028 with a stable CAGR of 6.3%. The major shift in customer preferences for organic foods is traceable to the rise in health and environmental concerns. In addition, food safety concerns have fueled the expansion of organic aquaculture. Organic aquaculture is centered primarily in Asia, benefiting the growth of aquaculture. However, significant competitors have various obstacles with organic aquaculture because it requires organic supplies to make nutritious diets and has only a minor range of internationally recognized certifications.

However, the industry is also witnessing hurdles as a lack of commercial adoption hampers demand because it is a novel and unconventional method of breeding fish for food. Such restrain also attributable to a need for more knowledge about aquaculture. As a result, low consumer acceptance is projected to limit market expansion. To enhance the prevalence of organic culture, industry participants must launch global campaigns to communicate the benefits of organic culture.
