Rockville, United States, 2021-Feb-10 — /EPR Network/ —

According to a latest study by global research and consulting firm Fact.MR, the tilapia market is expected to generate significant gains in 2021 over 2020, underpinned by heightened reliance on seafood-based protein intake by consumers. Growth for the next decade is likely to remain optimistic, registering a steady CAGR from 2021-2031.

As per Fact.MR’s analysis, the scope for tilapia suppliers and manufacturers has aggrandized significantly since the past 5 years. A United Nations report published in 2018 inferred that over 3 billion people rely on fish for a fifth of their total protein intake. Furthermore, the Food and Agricultural Organization estimated global fish production had reached around 179 million tons that same year. Market players are especially hopeful about acquiring massive gains across the Asia-Pacific region, attributed to the region’s bountiful offerings of different fish species.

China is expected to remain in the lead, capturing 30% of the total revenue share according to Fact.MR, and is expected to remain the leading seafood producer, exporter and consumer, with a figure amounting to nearly 2 million tons on an annual basis. Likewise, opportunities also abound across IndiaVietnam and Myanmar respectively. In Vietnam, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development reported the presence of 30,000 hectares of commercial tilapia ponds as of 2019. Governments, therefore, are lending heightened support to help proliferate further production through numerous regulatory sanctions, providing a massive boost to the market in the future.

“Prominent manufacturers and suppliers are concentrating on providing advanced fishing solutions to increase yield per hectare, besides the introduction of new product lines and tilapia forms, paving way for enhanced research & development prospects,” concludes the Fact.MR analyst.
