Published | 21 November 2022

China's Fish market is growing at a high CAGR because of the increasing consumer consumption brought on by altered eating habits for a healthier lifestyle and the demand for whole fish in China. In addition, e-commerce is driving the fish market in China.

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the China Fish market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. The China Fish market is booming because of the increased consumer consumption brought on by altered eating habits, customer desire for a healthier lifestyle, and expanded industrial capabilities in China. In addition, the rising demand for whole fish in China is emerging as a significant driver of market expansion. However, rising costs and massive demand are restraining market growth.

E-commerce is Driving China Fish Market

Consumption of seafood exceeds domestic output.

China is a major player in production, consumption, and trade. As a result of their dominance, Chinese decisions about the seafood they consume and the methods and locations used to obtain it are becoming more significant for both China and the rest of the globe. This viewpoint uses a transdisciplinary method to investigate this problem and examines potential future modeling attempts, global environmental sustainability, and seafood supply assumptions. China will likely make an effort to enhance domestic freshwater and offshore aquaculture and seafood imports, maybe grow the distant water fishing sector and engage in seafood production abroad to close the seafood deficit.

The rising cost and huge demand act as a restrain to the market

Increased inspection costs, shipping delays, increasingly strict Chinese Customs inspections, and a lengthy and complex process are all factors that make it difficult to import raw materials. The industry's already challenging transition from producing fish for export to satisfying domestic demand is being made much more challenging by these costs.

Salmon and tilapia, among the fish type segment, is the most popular in China fish market.

Carp, tilapia, salmon, catfish, and other fish species made up the type segments of the China fish market. The rising demand for fish products with high nutritional selenium contents, namely Atlantic salmon. The consumption of sashimi-smoked goods is a new trend accelerating the market's expansion in China. The market in China is also being driven by the expansion of tilapia farming for both export and home consumption. The development of fish processing and reprocessing for export during the past two decades has maintained or generated millions of livelihoods. With high rates of fish usage and the extraction of unique goods like chemicals for cosmetics and medicines, China has been able to add value to its fish products, promoting the growth of fish.

Impact of COVID-19 on China Fish Market

The COVID-19 outbreak disrupted logistics and temporarily halted the flow of fish food supplies. The COVID-19 restrictions impacted the supply chain for fish products. Due to the pandemic's restrictions and market closures, international trade, which is heavily dependent on these products, was severely harmed relatively early. Fresh fish production that went unsold led to rising live fish stock levels. Additionally, it has increased nationwide fish mortality risks and feeding expenses.
