Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Canned Seafood

The demand for canned fish and seafood has witnessed a steady growth owing to the consumer awareness regarding the nutritional benefits of seafood coupled with the convenience in consumption it provides and the long shelf life it possesses. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, as of 2017, Asia-Pacific is the largest exporter as well as the largest importer of seafood in the world. Although the consumption of canned seafood is considerably low in the region, as most of the regional population in Asia-Pacific prefers to eat fresh seafood, when compared to frozen seafood, the demand for canned seafood mostly originated for seafood that is not available locally. For example, pasteurized crab meat is one of the prominent canned seafood products sold in Asia-Pacific countries after canned fish, like tuna.
