Executive summary

The Indian subcontinent, with a rich biodiversity of fish species, has emerged as an important aquaculture country particularly in the fresh water environment. As the second largest producer of fish, India provides a promising opportunity for aquafeed manufacturers to tap the growing demand for commercial aquafeed in the country.

This research report, Indian Commercial Aquafeed - The Changing Market Landscape, provides an in-depth study of India's aquaculture industry's performance in terms of inland and marine aquaculture production, along with the demand of commercial aquafeed in the coming years.

The study shows Andhra Pradesh has developed strong inland fish production capacity and contribution from inland sector increased from 1.1 million metric tons in 2010-11 to 1.6m tons in 2015-16. Andhra Pradesh accounts for 22% of India’s total commercial aquafeed consumption followed by West Bengal; however the penetration of commercial aquafeed is still at 10% for finfish category and a little higher for shellfish category in Andhra Pradesh.

This makes the state an attractive investment destination for aquafeed manufacturers. The report enables aquafeed manufacturers to screen most attractive regions for future expansion where penetration of commercial aquafeed is in single digit and fish production has been growing. West Bengal is another key state that offers huge potential for aquafeed manufacturers, the state ranks second in fish production and penetration of commercial aquafeed hovers around just 15% for shellfish category.

This is significantly low compared to states like Gujarat & Goa, wherein penetration of commercial aquafeed for shellfish category is around 50% in both states. The report includes state-wise fish production volume for inland and marine fishes and statewise potential demand for commercial aquafeed and its consumption for year 2015-16.

For the major farmed finfishes like carps, tilapia and catfishes, along with farmed shellfish, the report provides production forecast till 2020. Due to increase in aquaculture cultivation, the demand for production and consumption of aquafeed is expected to increase.

Therefore, the report also covers the aquaculture feed market forecast till 2020, along with the production and consumption of aquafeed. On account of our findings for the past and future trends, drivers and challenges, regional aquafeed demand break-up of finfish and shellfish is included in the report.

The report also includes a section on the major ingredients used in commercial finfish feed, to understand and evaluate the kind of ingredients that will be in demand with the increase in aquaculture production. Our research also depicts central and state governments initiatives for promoting aquaculture production and industry restraints of the commercial aquafeed market as well as technological advancements in aquaculture industry.

The report further includes business overview of key industry players, along with comprehensive outlook of the sector’s present and future scenario. Overall, the report is a result of extensive research and prudent analysis that will be offering suitable knowledge base to those who are interested in this industry.
