COVID-19 Impact:

Disruptions in Supply Chain and Reduced Seeding Activities to Impede Market Progress

The COVID-19 pandemic is predicted to have a detrimental impact on this sector because of supply chain disruptions. Lockdown was implemented as a result of the abrupt increase of COVID infections, which had a detrimental impact on seeding and storage operations. Additionally, there was waste as a result of the transportation stoppage, which hurt business. Moreover, less actions were conducted to sow due to a shortage of raw resources. However, producers might be able to make up their losses if they employ lower capacity, highly advanced production machinery, and sanitization techniques. During the epidemic, market development may be positively impacted by these variables.

Drivers and Restraints

Rising Demand for High Protein Diet and Sustainable Seafood Choices to Foster Market Growth

The demand for the product is anticipated to increase due to consumers’ growing spending power and desire for a diet high in protein. To ensure that consumers can purchase fresh goods, businesses concentrate on creating improved methods for food preservation and storage. Furthermore, it is anticipated that industrial expansion will be aided by international funding for fishing activities. Initiatives for sustainable fishing are assisting in raising awareness of seafood consumption in the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) opposes illicit fishing and promotes American involvement in a number of international fisheries accords. These elements might support the growth of the shrimp business in the years to come.

Trade disputes between various nations, however, are anticipated to impede the market’s development.
