Buy Report

In terms of economic growth, Asia-Pacific is one of the rapidly growing regions in the world. The growth of Asia-Pacific region has mostly been captured by intensive industrialization and infrastructure development. China and India are leading countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The protein industry in Asia-Pacific region has recorded considerable growth in past few years. Whey protein and soy protein are most popular protein types in the region, the popularity of both protein types is mainly because of its highest respective applications across dietary supplements and food industry. In past few years, the demand for alternative cheaper sources of protein has been growing steadily. Insect protein and fish protein are novel protein types which are expected to fulfil the expectations for cheaper protein rich ingredients from price sensitive Asian consumers.

Presently, Asia-Pacific region shares around 23% of global fish protein market share and holds estimated $0.83 million market revenue in 2018. Major drivers of fish protein market in the region includes rising health consciousness, improving lifestyle of middle income and lower income families, growing sensitiveness towards lactose and gluten and ever-growing awareness about the health advantages of protein among both regular population and fitness enthusiasts. Considering these drivers, the fish protein industry in region is expected to attain the value of $1.14 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecasting period 2018 to 2023.

Japan currently holds the leading position in terms of market revenue. Japan possess cutting edge food processing technology and has huge potential to innovate effective methods of fish protein extraction. Moreover, increasing number of Japanese consumers are giving up meat and meat-based products because of its health and switching to meat alternative products. Given the gap between current consumption and untapped  customer base, fish protein manufacturers have huge opportunity to expand their product range. Australia’s fish protein market captures around 15% of market share and possess similar attributes to the market of fish protein in western developed region.

China and India are rapidly growing nations in the region. Both the countries are major producers and consumers of fish and fish products. The fish protein market though in nascent stage but with rising demand for protein rich products and developing food processing industry provides huge opportunity to the fish protein market. Youngsters and middle-aged population in these countries are switching to gym and fitness clubs to lead healthy lifestyle and to maintain body weight. Hence, the rapidly growing dietary supplements industry of China and India presents huge scope for the fish protein manufacturers to expand fish protein application. South Korea and Thailand, both capture significant fish protein market share. Population in both countries are shifting towards the consumption of meat alternative products which presents opportunity for application of fish protein across food industry.

Rapidly rising market value of alternate protein types such as whey, soy and wheat protein, increasing adoption rate of vegan and vegetarian lifestyle, growing concern about the environment and low awareness about the fish protein in most of the countries in Asian region are some of the major restraints of the fish protein market in coming years. Aroma NZ based in New Zealand is among the leading fish protein producer across the globe. The company is planning to expand its operation across other region in the world by implementing various strategies such as product launch and acquisition. Though, at present the competition in the fish protein industry of Asia-Pacific is very low but with growing number of new entrants, the competition ratio is expected to surge in coming years
