A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that United States Aquafeed market was worth USD 11.37 Billion in 2020 and is further projected to reach the valuation of USD 18.11 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The growing aquaculture and the rising demand for seafood are the primary drivers of the market in the United States. This can be attributed to the inadequate availability of marine feed resources and the increasing demand for fish. Moreover, fish farming trend is anticipated to surge during the forecast period, thus propelling the United States aquafeed market in the country.

Growing Aquaculture Production is Driving the Market Growth

Aquaculture production in the United States has grown over the past 35 years. Growing demand for seafood is the primary reason for the steady growth of aquaculture in the country. The United States is home to the world's largest aquaculture sector and North America's largest seafood industry. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) "Fisheries of the United States 2019" stated that the per capita seafood consumption in 2019 was 19.2 pounds, an increase of 0.2 pounds over the 19 pounds of seafood consumed in 2018. Therefore, increasing seafood consumption demand has been stimulating the aquaculture production in the country, boosting the United States aquafeed market.

The Dry Form Feed Anticipated to Contribute Majorly in the United States Aquafeed Market

Based on forms, the United States Aquafeed market is categorized into dry, wet, moist, and others. The dry form held the largest market share in 2020 and is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. Dry form feed is comparatively easy to produce, store, and transport. The significant advantage of such type of feed is that it can be manufactured in various sizes to satisfy specific needs. A variety of feed sizes and the manufacturing of specialized feed with such form are anticipated to boost the segment growth during the forecast period.

United States Aquafeed Market: By Additives

In terms of additives, the United States Aquafeed market is categorized into amino acids, prebiotics & probiotics, antioxidants, antibiotics, vitamins & minerals, enzymes, and other additives. Due to its high compatibility with various fish species and its benefits, such as a high protein content and enhanced immunity against various types of infections and water-borne diseases, the amino acid segment has accounted for a significant share of the market. Besides this, few amino acid additives, including leucine and lysine, improve the outer body strength and aids in healthy flesh growth in fishes, boosting the product demand. The demand for amino acid proteins from aquatic species, including prawns and fish, is anticipated to grow due to their inability to break down proteins into amino acids such as threonine, tryptophan, methionine, lysine, valine, phenylalanine, and arginine.

Impact of COVID-19

Coronaviruses plagued the country in early 2020, resulting in a shortage of staff and strict hygienic requirements for fishing and processing operations. In addition, the lockdown restrictions have led to a reduction in procedures. Farmers have received considerable supplies from feed corporations to protect the health and well-being of their animals and preserve farm productivity. The growing use of 'Scientific Aquaculture Management Practices' has been fueled by the increased demand for fish (SAMP). As a result, fish farming is likely to rise, providing opportunities for the aquafeed industry to thrive. Because marine feed supplies are limited and fish demand is increasing, the fish farming trend is likely to grow, providing an opportunity for the compound feed market to thrive.
