The Indian shrimp feed market reached a value of US$ 1.05 Billion in 2020. Shrimp feed is produced in order to meet the nutritional requirements of farmed shrimps. It helps in maintaining the required levels of essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other important nutrients. Some of the common ingredients used in shrimp feed include fish and squid meal, lecithin, fish oil, cereal flour and other essential and propriety additives. The use of good quality feed helps in improving the shrimp production, profits, and minimising the environmental pollution generated from shrimp farming. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Shrimp Feed Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the Indian shrimp feed market is expected to exhibit strong growth during the next five years.

One of the primary factors catalysing the growth of the Indian shrimp feed market is the massive marine wealth in India that sustains the development of the aquaculture industry. In addition, the market is also influenced by the commercialisation of vannamei shrimp, supported by a sustained demand from both the developed and developing countries. The production and export of vannamei has overtaken native species of shrimps like black tiger which were farmed dominantly till 2003.
