Scope of the Report

Aquafeed is a mixture of raw materials, additives, and other supplements, sourced from either natural or synthetic sources and are fed to farmed fish. Soybean meal, fishmeal, fish oil, and carp are the most commonly used raw materials. Aquafeed is commonly available in the form of pellets, which contain vital ingredients for fish, administered externally. These pellets vary in size, depending on the species that has to be fed. In addition, properties of these feeds can be altered to make them float on the water surface or sink to the bottom of the tanks, where fishes are reared. Furthermore, the content of various nutrients in the feed can be controlled, and this resulted in the growth and rise in popularity of the aquafeed industry over the past few years. They are made for aquatic species, such as fish, crustaceans, and molluscs.

Key Market Trends

Increase in Export Demand is driving the market

The growing demand for aquaculture products has a direct implication on the production of high yield aqua feed. Intensive aquaculture depends on commercially manufactured aqua feed, though most of the inland farmers in the country rely on farm-made feed. As a member of ASEAN, Vietnam involved in several bilateral and free trade agreements, which created a huge demand for Vietnamese aqua feed in major economies, such as the United States, North America, China, and India. Usually, all the good quality feed is exported to major markets and crop residues, such as leaves, grasses, corn, cassava, fish trash are used as their internal feed ingredients, which in turn affect the pond ecosystem. To reduce the environmental impact, the government focused on introducing nutritious system feeding concept, which not only feeds the farm creatures but also improves the overall ecosystem of it.
