The expanding agriculture industry is a major growth driver for mushroom market. With increasingly modernized agricultural practices and rising need to cultivate food for the ever-growing population, the demand for mushrooms has surged in the last few years. Mushrooms have been scientifically proven to be healthy for the human body. Not to mention, they are used in the pharmaceutical sector as well, given their ability to fight against certain disorders.

The COVID-19 Impact
The COVID-19 has hit the world hard, with many economies experiencing a downward spiral and businesses shutting down due to nationwide lockdowns. With most manufacturing and production activities coming to a standstill, mushroom market has indeed been impacted. While small farming businesses and private mushroom growers opting for alternate means of farming such as hydroponics or aquaponics have been able to stay afloat, major mushroom businesses seem to have been negatively impacted.
However, the impact has been felt more on account of the standstill brought about in supply chain and imports and exports. It is expected that mushroom production and distribution is likely to gain pace soon enough, with the stabilization of the global economy and the restoration of normalcy.
