Marine Feed Market to Reach US$ 63,056.3 Million by 2033 as Wild Fisheries are Getting Depleted Worldwide

The global marine feed market is growing due to increased interest in fish farming, rising seafood consumption, and the demand for sustainable protein sources, driven by the depletion of wild fisheries.

NEWARK, Del, Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per a recent research report by Future Market Insights (FMI), sales of marine feed are estimated to reach a value of US$ 63,056.3 million by 2033, surging at a 6.9% CAGR through the forecast period 2023 to 2033. The global marine feed market is projected to attain a valuation of around US$ 37,311.4 million in 2023.

The global market for marine feed is growing as more and more people become interested in fish farming. Another important aspect driving up demand for marine feed is the growing trend of seafood consumption.

Growth is also expected to be driven by the rising demand for sustainable sources of protein. The wild fisheries are being depleted as a result of this growing demand.

Aquaculture has demonstrated a crucial way to close this increasing gap in the availability of protein resources in order to address this problem. In addition, this offers a significant chance for producers in the marine feed market. It is anticipated that they will provide farmed fish with vital nourishment.
