Owing to such profiles, they can readily aid the immunity, promote brain health, and weight loss aspects. Broad categories of shellfish can be demarcated into crustaceans and molluscs. Within the former segment, species such as shrimp, crayfish, crab, and lobster are covered. In the latter segment, which is molluscs, clams, oysters, and various other form of fisheries are covered. The rising opportunities within the developing countries along with the functional properties of the shellfishes along with better technological expressions and use of AI and IoT in various cold chains and supply chain metrics have allowed the Global shellfish industry to offer lucrative opportunities in the projected period of 2022-2027.
Global Shellfish Market Segmentation Analysis- By Type
The global shellfish market based on type can be further segmented into Crustaceans and Molluscs. Molluscs held a dominant market share in the year 2021.

Global Shellfish Market Challenges
Shellfishes have been considered as one of the prime food allergens, which impedes the overall market growth.
Asia-Pacific takes a mammoth share for the shellfish demand. However, the region is extremely allergic to shellfish as well. The protein which is responsible for causing acute anaphylaxis are tropomyosin. The body’s immune gets alerted by the said chemical, thereby releasing histamines in blood, resulting in mild to severe allergy. As per research, the prevalence of shellfish allergy was 2% higher than fish allergy, and stands at 3% of the adult population. Furthermore, the prevalence of shellfish allergy was between 5.12% to 7.71% in adolescents and adults in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Philippines. Crustacean was the predominant allergy-inducing food (3.8%), followed by fin fish (1.2%) and mollusk (1.0%) in a study population of more than 8600 participants. Owing to such reasons, the overall market’s growth is hindered.
