The Global Dehydrated Seafood Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2021-2028. The major drivers for the growth are increasing health consciousness among consumers, rising demand for convenient food products, and high-quality ingredients. North America is estimated to be the largest region in the global dehydrated seafood market with more than 50% share on account of growing preference for healthy food and convenience foods over fresh meat products.
Dehydrated seafood is processed by removing the moisture from fresh or frozen fish and shellfish. It is a food product that usually has been salted or smoked and dried to remove the water content. It is often used in soups, pasta dishes, salads, casseroles, and snacks such as fish chips.
Dehydrated Seafood can be used for many purposes. Below are some examples:
Seafood is naturally high in protein and low-fat. Consequently, it has been a popular health food for decades. With the increasing awareness of healthy eating habits, demand for dried foods to reduce cooking time, and reliance on frozen or fridge-stored ingredients that must be cooked before use, the demand for processed fish products has risen significantly over recent years. It also helps meet seasonal demands by supplying fresh fish all year round without relying too much on imports which are affected by trade restrictions such as tariffs and quotas from countries of origin.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Spray Dried, Freeze Dried, Vacuum Dried, and Sun-Dried.
Spray Dried Seafood is made by the process of spraying vegetables, seafood, and fruits with hot water to extract the liquid from them and then drying them in ovens or dehydrators. The main advantages lie in its lightweight (~30% lighter than frozen food) which makes it suitable for long-distance transportation as well as cooking at home. This type can be cooked without thawing before cooking so you don't have to wait too much time when using this kind of product. In addition, some models allow a one-way flow of moisture back into the dehydrated varieties after dehydration has taken place. Spray-dried produce a light flavor that is easily overlooked by people who enjoy strong flavors like smoked foods.
Freeze-dried seafood is a type of food preservation that utilizes the process of freeze-drying. Freeze drying kills microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, which can cause spoilage in perishable foods. A vacuum chamber preserves the flavor, texture, color, and nutritional value by removing water from frozen foods at different temperatures below zero (°F). Freeze-drying retains all the vitamins found naturally in fresh fish but does not contain any water content which means there is no moisture left on your fingers when you touch it unlike other forms of dehydration method.
Vacuum Dried seafood is a method of preserving food by reducing the air pressure inside an enclosure to remove water from it. It can be done in several ways, including vacuum packing, tumble dryers, and freeze-drying. Vacuum dried foods are often packaged as cubes or strips for convenience before being rehydrated with boiling water.
Sun-drying is the oldest and most labor-intensive method of dehydrating food. It’s also one of the least efficient methods because it takes a lot more time than other forms to dry out meat or vegetables. The sun's heat dries things through evaporation from their surfaces, making them lose water molecules (H²O) until they are stable enough to be stored without further exposure to light or air. Sun-drying can take weeks in high humid climates where temperatures do not exceed 40°C/104°F but only days at lower temperature up to 38 °C /100 ° F with low humidity.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Supermarkets, Hypermarkets, and E-commerce.
The demand for this application is fueled by economic development which has exceeded GDP per capita income levels required to purchase expensive seafood at retail shops. Moreover, distribution channels such as supermarkets make it convenient for consumers to buy frozen or freeze-dried products. This will lead to higher incomes among consumers that are moving into developed countries from rural areas where they don't have access to seafood.
Consumers in emerging economies are shifting from traditional foods such as eggs, milk, and meat towards more protein-dense items like fish, which will drive the demand for frozen or freeze-dried products in this application. In addition, hypermarkets also provide the convenience of purchase due to their large size that offers a wide range of food at one store. This is beneficial considering consumers often experience difficulties with transportation by foot on busy streets.
The market share within this segment can be attributed mainly to an increasing number of online stores offering fresh produce as well as nutritious foods including seafood such as shrimp, tuna, and crab sticks; all requiring freezing before dispatch overseas for delivery purposes.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2017, North America accounted for the largest revenue share followed by the European region. North America is expected to dominate the global dehydrated seafood market through 2028. Rising disposable incomes, large populations, and increasing demand for convenience food will result in the high growth of this region's dehydrated seafood sector over these forecast periods.
Furthermore, with supermarkets becoming more popular than ever across the Asia Pacific excluding Japan where hypermarkets dominate this segment), this is expected to be one of the fastest-growing application areas for dehydrated food over these forecast periods.
In addition to seafood being a healthy option for consumers, it is viewed as an important source of protein in many countries around the world; making it essential that supply chains can maintain up-to-date inventories so products do not go stale or spoil before reaching their destinations. This will drive demand during these next few years due to the strain on global fish stocks which rely on catches from fisheries that are already at full capacity. Furthermore, with supermarkets becoming more popular than ever across the Asia Pacific excluding Japan where hypermarkets dominate this segment), this is expected to be one of the fastest-growing application areas for dehydrated food over these forecast periods.
