Global Defatted Fish Meal Market Insight January 20, 2022 Comments

The Defatted Fish Meal is forecast to fast increase over the next four years. According to the WK-chem Research “Global Defatted Fish Meal Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, Fish meal is a commercial product mostly made from fish that are not used for human consumption;fish meal is generally used to feed far manimals in an agricultural setting.Because it is calorically dense and cheap to produce,fishmeal has played a critical role in the growth of factory farms and the number of farm animals it is possible to breed and feed. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 6.9% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:

“Due to the increasingly fierce competition in the defatted fish meal market, it is recommended that companies adopt more corresponding strategies to adapt to the changing and developing markets.” Said Amy, Senior analyst, Chemical industry Market Research Center in WK-chem Research.

Market insight:

Fish farming is an agricultural industry with strong advantages and development potential. The global fish farming volume is increasing year by year. Accompanying the increase in fish production is the consumption of fish by residents. Due to the continuous improvement of residents’ living standards, the demand for high quality is constantly increasing.Protein leads to an increase in fish consumption, which further increases the number of farmed fish. The technology of raising seedlings is becoming more and more mature, and the types and numbers of farmed fish are increasing. The development of the aquaculture industry has increased the supply of raw material resources for defatted fish meal.The global epidemic has affected the entire capture fishery and the reduction of fish meal raw materials supplied by the capture fishery. The extension of the fishing ban protects the growth and development of spawning groups and larvae, increases the density of fishery resources, and effectively alleviates the decline of fishery resources. Under control, fishery companies will be able to obtain more fish and fishmeal production companies will also be able to obtain better quality fish raw materials.More and more fish processing by-products are used as materials for the production of defatted fish meal, which is a positive trend. Making full use of by-products can reduce waste, produce high-quality products, and improve the health of humans and animals.

At present, various companies have different levels of production technology for defatted fish meal. The processing technology of defatted fish meal in some enterprises is high-temperature drying. The disadvantage is that high temperature drying will cause a large amount of loss and destruction of amino acids in defatted fish meal, serious protein loss, and reduce the internal quality of defatted fish meal. In addition, this drying method leads to high production costs and high energy consumption.After the epidemic is effectively controlled and restrictions on various industries are lifted, the downstream market’s demand for fishmeal will grow rapidly in the short term. Fishmeal companies with large market shares and adequate supply of raw materials, as well as strong anti-risk capabilities, will be further improved, while small and medium-sized fishmeal companies with weak cost control capabilities and shortages of raw materials will further increase the pressure to survive and may face the risk of exiting the market.

Competition Landscape:

This WK-chem Research market report is designed to help clients improve their market position, and in line with this, this report provides a detailed analysis of several leading Defatted Fish Meal companies that include Coomarpes, Havsbrun, Nissui, Fengyu Halobios, TASA, Iceland Pelagic, Dalian Longyuan Fishmeal, Daybrook, Omega Protein, Strel Nikova, Austevoll Seafood ASA, KT Group, Hayduk, Hainan Fish oil&fish meal, Corpesca SA, Austral, COPEINCA, Chishan Group, Kodiak Fishmeal, Cermaq, FF Skagen, Hisheng Feeds, Rongcheng Blue Ocean Marine Bio, Exalmar, Diamante.

Segmentation of Defatted Fish Meal Market:

According to the type, the global Defatted Fish Meal market is segmented into Flame Dried(FD) Fishmeal, Steam Dried(SD) Fishmeal. Steam Dried(SD) Fishmeal accounts for the main market share.Traditional drying methods are not efficient, and local heating is uneven, which affects the quality of fish meal. The steam drying temperature and the temperature everywhere in the length direction of the heating jacket tend to be consistent, and there will be no significant temperature drop in the length direction of the body, so that the dryness of the fishmeal in the lower shell is the same, and there is no need to deliberately extend the drying time to achieve Uniformity of dryness.Based on application, the market is Aquaculture Feed, Poultry Feed, Pig Feed, Pet Food and Others.The Aquaculture Feed account for major market shares.With the increase in marine aquaculture production, there is an underlined demand for high quality protein sources for aquafeeds.Fish meal is primarily used as a protein supplement in compound feed. About 56% of fish meal was used to feed farmed fish, about 20% was used in pig feed, about 12% in poultry feed, and about 12% in other uses, which included fertilizer.Fish meal is used in animal feeds because it is high in protein concentration, and it is also a good source of calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals. Fish meal is particularly popular in aquaculture feeds because of its high protein content and excellent amino acid balance for aquatic animals.

Defatted Fish Meal Market: Regional Analysis

In terms of geography, the global Defatted Fish Meal market has been segmented into: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa.Asia-Pacific is likely to dominate the Defatted Fish Meal market.The highest demand for fishmeal comes primarily from fast-developing Asian countries such as China, India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Japan. The increasing interest in fishmeal is driven by accelerating high-scale swine and poultry cultivation and growing demand for seafood. The largest global buyer of the product was China.Fish meal is a natural ingredient with high nutritional value and the main ingredient of aquaculture feed because it provides essential amino acids and lipids for animal development. Fish meal is a source of high-quality protein, with a balance of essential and non-essential amino acids. In view of its advantages, the demand for fish products in aquaculture has been increasing in the past 50 years,therefore should fue woridwide Defatted Fish Meal market during the foreseen period.
