Aquafeeds are specifically prepared for various aquatic animals using raw materials and additives. The aquafeeds are made as per the species and age of the aquatic animals. Aquafeeds are mainly given to fishes, molluscs and crustaceans reared in aquaculture. High-quality aquafeeds provide essential nutrients to aquatic animals, improve immunity, and promote growth.
The global aquafeed market was valued at USD 63.8 billion in the year 2019. In 2020-2027, this market is projected to grow with a compound annual growth rate of a CAGR of 4.3%.
The increase in global demand for seafood and increasing awareness about high-quality seafood are the main factors driving the growth of the aquafeeds market. The growth of the aquaculture industry, especially in developing countries, is also a major factor propelling the growth of the aquafeeds market. Fish is a rich source of vitamins and proteins, which has led to rising demands for fish worldwide. This has also led to increasing demand for aquafeeds. Technological advancements in the aquafeed formulation methods in developed countries is also a growth driver.
Volatility in the prices of raw materials such as corn and soybean has a restraining effect on the growth of the aquafeeds market. The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the supply chain and led to the closures of many aquafeeds manufacturing facilities which slowed down the market’s growth.
