Global Aqua Feed Market to Expand at 11.40% CAGR from 2013 to 2019 owing to Growing Consumption of Fish
Transparency Market Research has published a new report on the global aqua feed market. As per the report, the global aqua feed market is expected to progress from US$57.7 bn in 2012 to US$122.6 bn by 2019. The report, titled ‘Aqua Feed Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019,’ states that the market is predicted to expand at an 11.40% CAGR during the period between 2013 and 2019. The market’s growth will stem from the mounting consumption of fish worldwide.
Aqua feed is food formulated specifically for fishes, which is commercially manufactured via numerous industrial procedures. Aqua feed is primarily available as pellets, which contain important ingredients that provide nutrition to fish. As per the fish species and size to be fed, these pellets are available in many sizes. Further, the properties of pellets can be easily changed so that they sink to the bottom of fish tanks or float on the surface of the water. The nutrient contents of the feed can be controlled and this has benefitted the global aqua feed market in the recent past. Also, there has been a growth in the farming aquatic species such as crustaceans, mollusks, and fish.
The fluctuating cost of raw materials used in aqua feed is predicted to hamper the growth of the global aqua feed market in the next few years. However, the rising demand for functional and conventional aqua feed from China and Rest of Asia is expected to benefit the global aqua feed market in the near future. The growth of the global aqua feed market is projected in the next few years due to the increasing demand for fish in various foods. The human consumption of fish is predicted to increase in the years to come, thereby driving the global aqua feed market.
