When it comes to the Fish & Seafood market, it is important to consider some of its main challenges and uncertainties. A significant contributor to the changes in distribution and fish stock volume is climate change. Additionally, unforeseen events have an impact on both market supply and demand – the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, which disrupted production and the supply chain, and the Russia-Ukraine war, given that Russia is one of the top exporters of fish and seafood.
There are several factors that influence this market. This includes the expansion of fish production and product innovation, which help to increase supply numbers and thus to meet consumer demand. Furthermore, improved distribution channels also play a significant role in the development of the market. Given that fish and seafood prices are typically higher than that of meat, income growth also boosts their sales.
Over the next decade, global fish and seafood consumption is expected to grow, particularly in high-income and upper middle-income countries. In regard to Fish & Seafood market trends, it can be observed that consumption of plant-based fish and seafood or alternative proteins have increased exponentially as consumers are focusing more on health and wellness diets. Moreover, consumers are starting to care more about the food being convenient to prepare and regional, meaning that food producers need to focus more on direct-to-customer business models.
The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on the total consumer spending on food, which comprises all private household spending on food that is meant for at-home consumption (out-of-home consumption is not accounted for).

For example, the exponential trend smoothing is well suited for forecasting the Food market with a projected steady growth. The main drivers are GDP per capita and consumer spending per capita.
