China Fish Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Strong economic conditions

The Chinese economy continues to expand fast, fueled by long-term improvements in industrial output, imports and exports, consumer spending, and capital investment. Since the Chinese government has been pushing industry consolidation in an effort to control the industry and boost competitiveness in the global market, rapid consolidation between medium and big businesses is expected. Natural ocean fishing has entered the declining stage of its life cycle worldwide, which provides expansion opportunities for the fish industry. Due to low manufacturing costs and long coastlines, China is in a good position to benefit from this decline. As a result, the strong economic condition of China favors the growth of the fish market in the country.

Rising consumer consumption

The fish market is also thriving as the Chinese appetite for live, and fresh aquatic produce and processed products grows among a wide range of consumers. Although processed aquaculture products are mainly shipped from the country, premium aquaculture products are increasingly gaining popularity in China. It is also flourishing due to consumer desire for reasonably priced products made from freshwater cultures. China's hectic lifestyles are fueling demand for processed aquaculture products like tilapia fillets. TThe preference for high-nutrition and low-calorie foods is also boosting demand for fish among customers in China as they are frequently preferred over poultry and beef meat because they contain an almost comparable amount of protein while being lower in calories.

China's involvement with world fisheries trade in aquatic products

China is now the world's greatest producer, consumer, and exporter of seafood due to its expanded involvement in the global fisheries trade for aquatic products. China's role in market supply chains is important as the greening of supply chains accounts for sustainability impacts on species, stocks, and ecosystems within China and elsewhere in the supply chains. International certification processes Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and various seafood consumption guides are examples of how this international interest is changing global production, processing, trade, and consumption patterns include the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and numerous seafood consumption guides. The possibility for aquatic resources around the world to become sustainable in their use and regeneration will depend on China's future expansion of production, import and export, and domestic consumption. The success with fisheries in scale and the ability to create a variety of market supply chains are driving the fish market in China.

The rising cost of inspection and delays in shipment coupled with demand impacting the fish market in China

Increased inspection expenses and shipping delays for seafood in China significantly negatively impact Chinese processing firms. These expenses are making the industry's already difficult transition from producing seafood for export to meeting domestic demand even more difficult. All inspections of Chinese Customs have become very harsh, and it takes a lot of time and so many procedures to get imported raw material. The companies in the industry lack confidence and sufficient resources to invest, which is limiting the expansion of the fish market in China. As a result, the company is having a lot of difficulties shipping the machines.

Impact of COVID-19 on China Fish Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted China's fish market. In China, the fishery is a long-standing and significant industry. The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has also highlighted possible issues with China's fishery development, such as the absence of organizations specifically designed to oversee and test the quality and safety of aquatic products. Additionally, new issues have emerged, such as the declining market demand for fish and aquatic products, which impacts the fishermen's income and way of life. Aquatic items like tilapia, prawns, crayfish, and bulk freshwater fish were severely impacted by the problem of overstocking in aqua farms at the beginning of 2020 (mostly as a result of the closure of markets and trade activity).

China's Fish market was segmented by type into carp, tilapia, salmon, catfish, and other fish species. The increasing demand for Atlantic salmon fish products to accomplish the demand for high nutritional selenium content. Also, the emerging trend in China to consume sashimi-smoked products is propelling the market growth. In addition, the rise of tilapia aquaculture for export and domestic consumption is also propelling the market in China. Millions of livelihoods have been maintained or created in the last two decades of expansion into fish processing and re-processing for export. China has been able to add value to its fish products, with high utilization rates of caught fish and by extracting novel products such as ingredients for cosmetics and medicines, leading to the growth of the fish market in China.
