Aquafeed Market

Market Leaders: Major Players are Focusing on Product Launches, Expansions and Acquisitions to Strengthen their Market Position in Aquafeed Market

According to MarketsandMarkets, the aquafeed market is projected to reach USD 88.0 billion by 2028 from USD 61.8 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period in terms of value. Due to the diminishing wild fish stocks and limited availability of seafood, aquaculture has grown significantly. A greater need for aquafeed products has been generated by the expansion of aquaculture operations, particularly in nations like China, India, Vietnam, and Norway, in order to support the rising production of aquatic animals raised for food. The improvement of feed conversion ratios, growth rates, and overall productivity in aquaculture can be attributed to the creation of sophisticated aquafeed formulations. Specialized feeds increase feed efficiency and lower production costs since they are created to specifically address the nutritional needs of various species and life stages. These premium feeds are being used by aquaculture farmers more frequently to boost productivity and profitability.
