Shrimp market players are focusing on collaborations with local distributors to address challenges of trade restrictions to sustain growth through the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 28, 2020 / Restrictive measures set up by governments in order to flatten the coronavirus curve continue to challenge the growth of several verticals in food sector. Limitations on imports, exports, and even local transport of goods is heavily impacting the prospects of fresh products such as shrimp. In addition to seafood markets sinking amid the pandemic and export restrictions resulting in stockpiling of seafood, global shrimp market is bearing the brunt of temporary closure of foodservice sector. A recent Future Market Insights (FMI) study forecasts the market to reach a US$ 4.9 Bn valuation between 2019 and 2029, and suggests that the fall of market amid outbreak will create opportunities for canned shrimp and related products in near term.

"Shrimp has been an affordable seafood. Prior to the pandemic, the demand for shrimp was strongly on the rise owing to its availability and nutritional properties. Moreover, the cost of producing shrimp products is reducing owing to advances in manufacturing technologies. The market is likely to recovery at a rapid clip once the outbreak subsides," says the FMI analyst.
