Aquaculture Market (Marine Water, Freshwater and Brackish Water) for Carp, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Salmon, Trout and Other Fishes - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

Aquaculture includes different kinds of activities such as fish farming, oyster farming and shrimp farming among others. Aquaculture can be practiced in brackish water, freshwater and marine water depending on the culture environment where diverse range of species such as fishes, mollusks and crustaceans are farmed. The aquaculture industry accounted for 50% of world’s fish food in 2012. Increasing consumer awareness regarding health benefits offered by consumption of fish and fish products is expected to be one of the primary factors driving aquaculture production. In addition, reduction in global catch of fishes is another key parameter which is expected to boost aquaculture production within the next few years. However, aquaculture market is vulnerable to adverse climatic conditions which led to outbreak of several diseases hampering the production. Increasing adoption of poly-culture systems such as rice and fish farming is expected to open new opportunities for the growth of the market by providing additional food and income by diversifying farm activities. Presently, the market share of aquaculture in the world fisheries industry is less than the captured fish market. According to Organization of Economic Co-operation Development (OECD), the capture fisheries’ output is expected to rise by 5% by 2022 whereas aquaculture is expected to increase by 35%. The aquaculture market is expected to surpass capture fisheries market as the main source for human consumption by the end of 2015.

 

Aquaculture practiced in freshwater was the largest culture environment segment accounting for over 60% of the overall aquaculture production in 2012. Majority of the aquaculture from freshwater throughout the world is carried out in ponds made from concrete and other materials. Fish population in natural water bodies such as oceans and rivers has reduced on account of over fishing. Owing to this factor, freshwater aquaculture has served as an alternative since the past few decades and is expected to follow a similar trend into the forecast period. Aquaculture practiced in marine water is expected to grow at an above average rate. Increasing consumer demand for sea water species is expected to drive the market for marine water aquaculture over the next few years.

 

Carps were the major product segment present within the industry and accounted for over 35% of the market share in 2012. They have been one of the fastest growing fish species which dominated the aquaculture production owing to their compatibility in less than ideal environmental conditions and increasing use in poly culture systems such as rice and fish farming. There is a growing demand for mollusks, particularly mussels and clams, due to rising consumer awareness regarding several health benefits associated with their consumption. In addition, the presence of mollusks in tanks and water bodies help in maintaining good water quality by filtering nutrients, sediments and contaminants from the water. Thus, they are being increasingly used in poly-culture systems to improve the quality of the surrounding environment. Mollusks are expected to witness the fastest growth among the aquaculture species at a CAGR of 2.6% from 2013 to 2019.

 

China alone contributed to 60% of the worldwide aquaculture production in 2012. Asia Pacific (excluding China) was the second largest contributor to the aquaculture market due to presence of favorable environmental conditions in this region. China is expected to witness the fastest growth within the forecast period on account of ease of availability of resources, ideal climatic conditions for aqua farming, and availability of cheap labor.

 

Some of the leading aquaculture manufacturers include Blue Ridge Aquaculture, Cermaq ASA, Cooke Aquaculture Inc., Nireus Aquaculture S.A., Selonda Aquaculture S.A. and Tassal Group Ltd. among others. The aquaculture market is fragmented in nature due to the presence of several small and medium companies.

Aquaculture refers to the cultivation of brackish, marine, or fresh water species such as shrimp, fish, and oysters under controlled climatic conditions. Compared to captured fish, the share of aquaculture in the global fisheries industry is considerably small and as a result, efforts are on to increase aquaculture activities around the world.

The global aquaculture market has been carefully studied in the report, using the latest research tools and methodologies. The structure, scope, and dynamics of the overall market have been discussed at length, also highlighting the various drivers and restraints impacting the growth of the aquaculture market. 

The report segments the aquaculture market based on product, culture environment, and region. By culture environment, the market is segregated into marine water, freshwater, and brackish water. On the basis of product, the aquaculture market is classified into mollusks, salmon, trout, sea bream, carps, crustaceans, milkfish, mackerel, sea bass, and others such as turbot and catfish. By region, the global aquaculture market comprises Europe, North America, China, Asia Pacific excluding China, and Rest of the World. 

Overview of the Aquaculture Market 

In 2012, the global aquaculture market was reportedly valued at US$135.1 bn. Expanding at a modest CAGR of 5.10% from 2013 to 2019, the aquaculture market is anticipated to reach a value of US$195.1 bn by the end of 2019. This growth can be attributed to the rapidly declining volume of captured fish in the global reserves that has been driving aquaculture activities around the world.

The growing awareness regarding the health benefits of fish and the surge in fish consumption are also fueling the aquaculture market. While rice and fish farming presents several lucrative options for players within the aquaculture market, adverse climatic conditions have played spoilsport in the growth of the global market. 

Carps formed the largest product segment in 2012 due to their greater compatibility with rough climatic conditions. Freshwater aquaculture accounted for a share of more than 60% in the aquaculture market in 2012, emerging as the largest culture environment segment. China was the clear leader among other geographical segments with a share of more than 60% in 2012. The aquaculture market in this segment is mainly driven by the easy availability of natural reserves and resources and cheap labor.
