​The global Aquafeed Market is set to surpass $235 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Rising seafood consumption and the prevalence of seafood-borne diseases has increased the requirement for aquafeed, which is driving the market.

Growing marine aquaculture market production, along with the increasing demand for high-quality seafood may boost market share. Aquafeed products are widely utilized in fish farms and breeding companies to support healthy growth and quicken the gestation period of fish species, such as salmon and carp, which may accelerate market growth. Stringent government aquafeed regulations in fish rearing activities, increasing cases of seafood-borne diseases, and changing consumer perceptions towards high-quality fish derivative products may augment market share.

The aquafeed industry's size for carp is dominant and is likely to witness steady gains over the forecast period. They are extensively reared, owing to their adaptability to climate change and rich protein concentration, containing low fat and high omega-3 fatty acids. Antibiotic aquafeed is widely used in carp farming, as they are susceptible to various bacterial diseases such as gill rot and internal fungal infections when held in captivity, which may trigger market share.

Some major findings of the aquafeed market report include:

  • The demand for aquafeed products is increasing due to their benefits, such as improved immunity resistance against bacterial infections and pathogens.
  • Increasing market demand for high-quality seafood and fish derivative products, such roe and cod liver oil, due to rising awareness towards potential benefits of seafood enriched diets.
