By 2025, the global shrimp market revenue is estimated to reach USD 133.43 billion by 2025 driven by the increasing demand for the product as a cheap source of protein. Rising consumer demand for protein across the world due to its various benefits for general well-being is expected to augment the demand for shrimps over the forecast period.

Lately, shrimps are majorly harvested from aquaculture ponds as their growth and quality can be controlled. Additionally, aquaculture involves the rearing, breeding and capture of specific species, a contrary scenario to wild captured fisheries. Moreover, authorized bodies are implementing regulations to reduce reliance on captured fisheries to maintain the ecological balance. Captured fisheries are expected to account for 35.8% of the global shrimp volume market share in 2025.

The growing demand for shrimp coupled with its seasonality has reflected notable volatility in its pricing. In 2017, the global shrimp prices were about USD 9 per kilogram. These prices change every month and are determined by numerous factors such as production and demand. Besides these economic parameters, the quality and therefore, the price of the final product is determined by the composition of shrimp feed.
Food accounted for over 70% of the global shrimp market consumption in 2017. Companies adhere to various food safety & quality standards such as GMP, EFSIS/BRC, ACC, HACCP, HALAL, ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 and Global Standard.
