Seafood products, such as tuna, salmon, and cod, are popular among consumers and can be less expensive than shrimp. Furthermore, some consumers may prefer the flavor or texture of other seafood products to shrimp. Shrimp faces competition from plant-based seafood alternatives, in addition to other seafood products. These alternatives are gaining popularity, particularly among consumers seeking more sustainable or ethical food options.

COVID-19 Impact

The pandemic of COVID-19 has had a great impact on the shrimp industry. The supply chain was disrupted in the early stages of the pandemic, since many shrimp farms and processing companies were closed or working at reduced capacity. This resulted in a drop in shrimp supply and an increase in costs. Furthermore, the pandemic reduced demand for shrimp by closing numerous restaurants and other foodservice businesses. A variety of reasons contributed to this, including social distancing measures, lockdowns, and a drop in customer confidence.

Shrimp Market Trends

The growing emphasis on sustainability and responsible sourcing procedures in the shrimp business is being pushed by growing environmental and ethical concerns. Consumers are seeking ecologically friendly shrimp products, and industry players are implementing aquaculture innovations such as closed-loop systems and improved feed formulations to lower the ecological imprint of shrimp farming.
