The fish segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global processed seafood market during the forecast period.
The fish segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment due to the highly perishable attribute of fishes, which make it imperative for harvesters to process them. The major types of processed fishes available in the market include dried, salted, fermented, and smoked. The initial phases of fish processing include washing, degutting, salting, fermentation, drying, and smoking. These processes then contribute to the development and changes in the flavor, texture, and color, and also improved its storage characteristics.
The scaling equipment segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the seafood processing equipment market during the forecast period, due to the increased demand for processed seafood products.
The scaling equipment segment is projected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Scaling equipment is mainly available in two types, namely, manual and automatic. Seafood products can be scaled manually. However, it involves a lot of time and effort. On the other hand, electrical handheld scalers save a lot of processing time and are easy to use. Other types of automatic scalers include equipment that have rotating drums with rough edges or a stainless mesh. In these types of scaling equipment, the product is placed inside the drum, which is then rotated, causing it to tumble, and eventually leading to the removal of their scales.
The Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest market share in the processed seafood market during the forecast period.
Europe is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2018. The Asia Pacific region includes countries such as China, Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand.
