World Aquaculture: Feed, Equipment & Chemicals

As Quoted In The Wall Street Journal

The ongoing transition from extensive and semi-extensive to intensive aquaculture production will support greater feed demand, and rising feed costs will drive advances in market value.

World demand to rise 7.4% annually through 2017

After several decades of rapid expansion, world demand for aquaculture supplies and equipment is expected to grow 7.4 percent per year to $63.6 billion in 2017 at the farm gate level. The ongoing transition from extensive and semi-extensive to intensive aquaculture production will support greater feed demand, and rising feed costs will drive advances in market value as fish meal and fish oil prices continue to grow rapidly. However, higher fish prices, due in large part to increasing feed costs, will result in slower growth in global per capita fish consumption.

Africa/Mideast to exhibit the most rapid gains

Asia was the largest and one of the fastest growing aquaculture producing regions from 2002 to 2012, with China alone accounting for 61 percent of global aquaculture production and 51 percent of supplies and equipment demand in 2012. While advances in Chinese demand for aquaculture inputs will moderate to a more sustainable pace after several decades of rapid growth and intensification, demand increases in the rest of the Asia/Pacific region will remain robust, with only the Africa/ Mideast region exhibiting faster gains. South America is expected to expand its presence in the global aquaculture industry as production increases throughout the region and as Chile recovers from the impact of a recent infectious salmon anemia outbreak. The more developed markets of Europe and North America are expected to show healthy growth in line with the modest expansions expected in aquaculture production from these regions.

Aquafeeds to remain largest, fastest growing segment

Aquafeeds dominate demand for aquaculture supplies and equipment, and an increasing share of farmers have turned to commercial feeds over farm-made products or natural food sources. The impact of higher fish meal and fish oil prices will be partially mitigated by the increasing use of lower cost vegetable fats and proteins, and by declining feed conversion ratios as higher quality feeds allow farmers to use them in smaller volumes. More intensive aquaculture requires the use of a greater variety of equipment, including pumps, filters, feeders, water quality monitors, and water treatment equipment. Water containing dense populations of fish can quickly foul, promoting increased demand for water treatment chemicals. As stocking densities rise, leading to increased problems with disease and growth inhibition, demand for feed supplements and pharmaceuticals will benefit. Although an increasing number of farmers are using commercial aquafeeds instead of natural food sources, chemical inorganic fertilizer demand is expected to grow in developing countries

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $44.6 billion world aquaculture supplies and equipment industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by fish type (finfish, shellfish), product (e.g., feed, equipment, water treatment chemicals, feed supplements, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers), market (hatcheries, intensive grow-out aquaculture, extensive grow-out aquaculture) world region and for 17 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 30 industry participants such as Nutreco, EWOS, and BioMar.
