Increasing awareness of the health benefits of seafood has driven consumption in recent years and the trend is likely to continue, according to a market research firm.
Transparency Market Research says the global seafood market is likely to grow at a steady pace as global population is making a lifestyle change.
“Changing lifestyles is the biggest contributor to the global seafood market. Analysts state that the growing awareness about proteins present in the wide variety of seafood is expected to drive the global seafood market. Today, the seafood market has progressed to farmed fishes or aquaculture to meet the exponentially growing demand,” the company said in the report, Seafood market – Global Forecast, Market Share, Trends, Size, Growth and Industry Analysis 2016 – 2023.
Consumer awareness of the advantages of seafood such as being rich in protein and an excellent source of Omega-3 has boosted seafood consumption in recent years, it added.
