Speak to Analyst:

The aquaculture market is segmented, on the basis of rearing product type, into equipment, chemicals, fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals. The equipment segment is projected to be a leading segment in the aquaculture market. This is attributed to the rising adoption of advanced feeding systems to meet the rising demand for the inclusion of nutrients at an optimum level in the diets of aquatic animals. Furthermore, the growth in demand for seafood and decline in the volume of captured fishes is prompting the farmers to use equipment for higher production.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the aquaculture market during the forecast period due to the rapid development of aquaculture in most of the countries in the region in terms of improving the food supply. The demand for aquaculture products is rising, as the farmers in this region are investing in new technologies and innovations in order to meet the increasing food supply and nutrient food. The consumption of fish and shrimp is witnessing an upward trend in the region, which aids the aquafarming industry.
