Global Shrimp Market is expected to be US$ 69.35 Billion by 2028, according to the publisher, making shrimp one of the most traded species of seafood worldwide.

The demand for shrimp is increasing not only in the food industry but also in other sectors such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and cosmetics, mainly because of its beneficial properties such as antioxidant and anti-aging effects. Shrimp is an excellent source of protein, phosphorus, and selenium, making it highly nutritious and easy to obtain.

The shrimp industry's stable long-term growth prospects are due to its high demand and improved supply. This makes it a significant driving force behind the growth of the global seafood industry. Additionally, shrimp is a popular ingredient in various dishes, especially in Asian cuisine, which can further increase its popularity and contribute to market expansion.

Global Shrimp Market is projected to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.72% between 2022 and 2028

To meet market requirements, small-scale farmers in Asian countries are being empowered by governments and organizations to increase stakeholder interaction and involvement in the cluster. Additionally, fiscal reliefs and incentives are being provided by governments to promote shrimp cluster farming in response to the rising global demand for shrimp. The seafood sector has been identified as a high-priority industry by major producing countries.

Therefore, adopting cluster farming through a participatory approach increases shrimp production, promotes sustainability, and reduces the risk of diseases. During the forecast period, the Global Shrimp Market is expected to witness growth, driven by government support for shrimp culture through cluster farming in countries such as China, India, Vietnam, and Thailand. This support is likely to attract new investors to the industry. In 2022, the global shrimp market size was valued at US$ 46.94 Billion.

India and Vietnam have emerged as the World's leading Shrimp Producers

The Global Shrimp market is categorized by producing countries, including China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Latin America. India is recognized as a significant supplier of value-added shrimp globally, thanks to its low labor costs and the economy of scale it has achieved by becoming one of the most extensive producers of farmed shrimp. The existing hatcheries, feed mills, and processing plants' capacity provide a solid foundation for future expansion.

Vietnam's shrimp industry faces a persistent challenge of ramping up production to meet the rising demand in both domestic and global markets, fueled by improving living standards. The country's shrimp production has grown significantly over the years, nearing the one million tons mark, mainly due to the cultivation of vannamei shrimp, which offers high yields through intensive farming, unlike black tiger shrimp that have low productivity in extensive farming. Vietnam's shrimp production is expected to rise by expanding the farming area and boosting the productivity of vannamei shrimp.

China becomes the Top Shrimp Importer Globally

The Global Shrimp Industry is categorized by importing countries, with China now ranked as the world's top shrimp importer. The other countries in this category include the European Union, EU28, United States of America, Japan, South Korea, Canada, and Vietnam. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, China has experienced a decline in domestic seafood production, leading to a high demand for imported shrimp. As a result, imports have increased to meet supply gaps, especially in the retail and catering industries.

Ecuadorian shrimp is the most commonly imported product, other countries such as India, Vietnam, Canada, and Greenland. The United States of America is also one the largest importer of shrimp in the world. The majority of imported frozen shrimp comes from India, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

It is anticipated that the future of farmed shrimp production could shift towards South and Central America.

India is benefiting from the increasing demand for disease-free and healthy shrimp, and has now become one of the largest shrimp exporters to both the US and the European Union. An expanding food industry is also being observed in India due to the rising demand for ready-to-eat food products, driven by forces such as rapid urbanization, changing lifestyles, hectic work schedules, and an increasing population of working women. Additionally, the rising worldwide demand for shrimp is positively affecting shrimp imports from India.

Litopenaeusvannamei (L. vannamei) is the most commonly sold Species of Shrimp Worldwide

Litopenaeusvannamei, also known as the Pacific white shrimp, has emerged as the most popular species in the market, accounting for over 50% of the global shrimp industry's production. This is due to its adaptability to a wide range of environments, high growth rates, and ability to withstand extreme conditions. Ecuador, China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam are the major producers of L. vannamei shrimp. It is anticipated that the market for M.rosenbergii and P. monodon shrimp will see further growth in the future, driven by heavy imports from major shrimp-consuming countries such as China and the USA.
