Fishmeal Market Comprehensive Shares, Historical Trends And Forecast By 2031

As per a recent market analysis by ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI), the global fishmeal market reached US$ 7225.2 Mn in 2021.

Increasing consumption of seafood across the globe is boosting demand for fishmeal. Growing demand for high-quality seafood and processed meat will continue providing tailwinds to fishmeal sales during the assessment period.

Fishmeal is emerging as a nutritive additive in animal feed. Rich in protein and fatty acids, fishmeal is increasingly being incorporated in animal feed, which is further augmenting the market growth.

Besides animal feed, application of fishmeal in fertilizers is significantly gaining traction. The nutritive properties of fishmeal provide adequate minerals to plants and crops and improve the fertility of the soil.

This, coupled with expansion of the agriculture industry is propelling sales in the market, with the U.S., China, Germany, Japan and the U.K. emerging as key producers of fishmeal.

As per FMI’s regional analysis, the U.K. is projected to exhibit positive growth patterns during the forecast period. High consumption of seafood in the country and growing awareness regarding fish-derived products such as fish oil will continue bolstering sales of fishmeal in the market.

“Increasing adoption of fishmeal in animal feed and fertilizers, coupled with growing consumption of seafood across the world will augment the market growth through 2031,” says the FMI analyst.
