Surimi is a processed seafood product made from white fish species such as Alaska pollock. It is a popular ingredient in various dishes, such as sushi, tempura, and fish cakes, due to its mild flavor and ability to mimic the texture of meat.
The global surimi market is expected to experience steady growth in the coming years, driven by the increasing demand for surimi-based products, particularly in Asia-Pacific. Market players can take advantage of this growth opportunity by expanding their product portfolios and increasing their marketing efforts in key regions.
The global surimi market was valued at US$ 6.8 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 9.0 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 2.9% during the forecast period (2023-2028). The increasing demand for surimi-based products, particularly in Asia-Pacific, is driving the growth of the market.
The market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest share of the market, due to the high demand for surimi-based products and the presence of large populations in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea. However, North America is expected to grow at a significant rate, due to the increasing demand for high-quality and sustainable seafood products.
The global surimi market is highly fragmented, with a large number of small and medium-sized players. Some of the key players in the market include Nippon Suisan Kaisha, Ltd., Maruha Nichiro Corporation, Thai Union Group PCL, Mazzetta Company LLC, and Ajinomoto Co., Inc.
