Global Fish Oil Market By Application (Aquaculture, Direct Human Consumption) Expected to Reach USD 3,300.0 Million by 2020 June 2014In addition, accelerating demand for aquaculture is further expected to fuel market growth for fish oil. Volatile fish oil prices, owing to static fish oil production, in contrast to the accelerating demand is expected to be a key challenge for market participants. Asia Pacific and Latin America are expected to be the fastest growing markets in term of demand due to increasing salmon farms in Chile and aquaculture of carps in China.
Aquaculture was the largest application segment, accounting for 772.4 kilo tons of fish oil demand in 2013 that is expected to reach 843.6 kilo tons in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 1.0% over next six years. It is expected to dominate the market share over the forecast period owing to increase in demand for species such as salmon, trout, carp, tilapias and marine fishes.
