Aquafeed Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Growing Aquaculture Industry

Growth in the aquaculture industry has expected to boost the demand for the aquafeed market during the forecasted period. This is attributed to the increased production of food for human consumption, the opening of commercially viable business opportunities, increased national exports, and need for substitution of imports by local production. According to the Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, in 2018, total global capture fisheries production reached the highest level ever recorded at 96.4 million tones.

Market Restraint:

  • Regulatory Framework & Interference

Global development of aquaculture has resulted in increasing concerns about the environmental impact which may hinder the growth of the aquafeed market. Environmental degradation from aquaculture has been reported and negatively affected which includes organic population and eutrophication, a buildup of excess nutrients and waste in the ecosystem. Thus, to control this impact and maintain the supply of aquafeed, governments have imposed various regulations. For instance, under the Fisheries Act, B.E. 2558 (2015), Department of Fisheries is authorized to address aquaculture sustainability, including food safety, animal health and welfare, environmental integrity, social and community welfare and regulation of fishing activities.
