Market Drivers:

The mounting requirement for advanced solutions and systems in food production has resulted in a higher penetration of the precision farming concepts, which depend on technologies like IoT connectivity, autonomous tractors, and drones. A sister sector equally preemptory for worldwide food security and yet less permeated by technical innovations is ‘aquaculture’. But the recent growth in the acceptance and popularity of data-driven management platforms that integrate data from numerous sources into a single cloud platform, encapsulating the entire dynamics of aquaculture in real-time, will augment the market demand.

Surging aquaculture production’s influence is not restricted to just fish, but also to mollusks, seaweed, and crustaceans. The emergence of intensive and semi-intensive farms, combined with the rise in modernization practices make crustaceans a lucrative segment in the aquaculture industry.

Crustacean production via aquaculture will see unabated growth in the coming years, as the worldwide industry continues to move towards digital transformation, in line with strategic advancements in purchases and sales, and supply planning. Meanwhile, this digital transformation is also enhancing real-time business and maximizing profits.

Market Restraints:

The changes in the climatic conditions worldwide as well as pollution of the water bodies due to toxic chemicals can slow down the expansion rate of the aquaculture market in the ensuing years.
