Fish Feed Market Regional Insights

North America is expected to dominate the global fish feed market during the forecast period owing to the presence of large fish farms for aquaculture. The United States has a significant demand for seafood as aquatic items occupy a specific position in the market. The growth of this market in this country is driven by population growth, rising income, and rapid urbanization. To meet the high demand for this product, nearly half of the raw material necessary is imported from other regions.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The growth of this market is attributed to excessive consumption of fish in countries of the far East such as Korea and Japan, Bangladesh, and some parts of Eastern India. In this region, aquaculture is practiced on a large scale as fish is staple food for several countries. In China, the consumption of fish is increased due to increasing disposable incomes of people. China is the highest exporter of seafood. Additionally, high nutrition obtained from fish is another factor supporting the high seafood consumption rate in the country. Seafood consumption in China accounts for 45% of the global volume. Hence, increasing domestic consumption and production of fish feed in the country, coupled with its multiple export relations with other countries are the factors supporting the market in Asia Pacific.

Fish Feed Market Dynamics

Drivers

Rise in Seafood Trend

  • The increasing demand for seafood and the rising consumer expenditure on fish and fish products are the key factors anticipated to drive the market. The demand for animal protein is high in well-established western countries as people are more conscious about their health. Hence, the increasing trend about seafood in the global economies is the factor propelling the market growth in the coming years.

Increasing Investment in R&D

  • The major players in this global industry increased their investments on R&D to produce innovative products which have a positive impact on market growth. For example, in Aug 2020, Milkfish Aquafeeds Research, Development, and Extension Project was launched in Guiuan. This new product aims to develop substitutes for fish feed ingredients to fight the existing high costs of feeds in the market. This new substitute comprises the use of plant-based proteins as a key ingredient for fish feed.

Restraints

Volatility of Raw Material Prices

  • Volatility associated with the raw material prices used in the production of fish feed is the major factor that hindered market growth. Furthermore, a significant rise in the price of soya bean, corn, or other raw materials can directly impact the product’s final price, which may hamper the product sales rate. In addition, the increasing number of people that prefer vegetarian lifestyle and food choices is also expected to hinder market growth.

Fish Feed Key Market Trends

Shift Towards Microalgae Oil

  • Most fishes require omega-3 fatty acids for their survival but are unable to produce them. Larger fish get omega-3 by eating smaller fish, which get it from aquatic plants. But this is an unsustainable process that holds minimal to no benefit. The solution for this problem is feeding fish with microalgae oil instead of traditional fishmeal. Feeding with microalgae oil benefits aquaculture business and the environment, thereby creating new business opportunities for the fish feed market.
