Sales Analysis of Market from 2014 to 2022 Vs Market Outlook for 2023 to 2033

The global shrimp disease diagnostics market recorded a historic CAGR of 5.1% in the last 8 years from 2014 to 2022 due to due to increasing in viral borne diseases, advancement in molecular diagnosis tools, and growing shrimp food industry.

Diagnostic procedures for shrimp sickness usually involve taking samples from sick shrimp and examining them for the presence of infections or other abnormalities. Tissue, blood, and faeces are all examples of possible samples. Microscopy, PCR (polymerase chain reaction), ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), and other laboratory techniques can be employed for diagnosis. PCR has been widely used to detect shrimp viruses, allowing disease risk to be controlled. PCR is a highly sensitive and robust technique for detecting pathogens in shrimp.

The important drivers of the shrimp disease diagnostics market include increasing demand for shrimp, rising awareness of disease management in shrimp farming, and the increasing prevalence of shrimp diseases. The market is also driven by the development of innovative diagnostic tools and the increasing availability of diagnostic services.

Shrimp is a well-known aquaculture species all over the world. Disease outbreaks in the previous two decades reduced shrimp production significantly. Early and accurate detection of acute infectious diseases in animals and humans is vital to effective and rapid response to manage control spread, outbreaks, and prevent loss of lives and working capital. Thus, analysis based on infectious disease epidemiology will benefit small industry players.

Availability of knowledge based resources and enhanced research collaborations tends to improve the product development for early diagnosis and prevention of infectious diseases. Continuous investment in product development have led to commercialization of shrimp disease diagnostic kits with the ability to incorporate multiple disease detection, which can be used in disease diagnosis tests, for achieving faster analysis.

How Can the Global Market Grow?

“Diagnostics Provide Biosecurity of Shrimps and Prevent Infectious Diseases Spread”

The growing requirement for shrimp aquaculture farming for human food and nutrition supply is expected to drive the global acceptance of shrimp disease diagnostics. The major driving factors are an increase in demand for marine shrimp aquaculture farming and freshwater, as well as increased global shrimp production. Shrimp disease diagnostics aid in the growth of healthy shrimps and the prevention of infectious diseases in humans.

  • According to published article on shrimp aquaculture wastewater management in Heliyon journal in 2021, for easy availability, aquaculture is an alternative option for fisheries. It is also beneficial to the growing global population. Shrimp farming is contributing significantly to global aquaculture production.

Biosecurity of aquaculture encompasses broad concepts of strategic and integrated approaches that include the policy and regulatory frameworks to analyze and manage risks in the sectors of aquaculture food safety and quality, life and health of animals and plants, including associated environmental risk. Application of shrimp disease diagnostics will help to maintain the biosecurity of shrimp farming, food safety and quality, and sustainability of shrimp farming.

Even today, more than two decades of emergence of White Spot Syndrome (WSS), there is no therapeutic option available, and the only option available is to detect and restrict the pathogen entry in the hatchery and farm, using advanced diagnostic tools. Screening of viral pathogens using PCR and DNA hybridization laboratories by the farmers rendered biosecurity in shrimp farming, preventing the spread of devastating infectious diseases such as WSD of shrimp through early diagnosis and acceptance of BMPs (best management practices).

Can the Market Growth Be Affected in Any Way?

“Lack of Lab Technicians, Stringent Regulations, and Cost of Diagnostics Procedures”

The detection of WSS is often performed in centralized laboratories utilizing molecular biology techniques. However, this method of testing can be costly and time-consuming as it requires specialized lab space, highly skilled lab personnel, sophisticated technology, and long-distance sample transportation from the field to the lab. Diagnosticians and farmers can be able to control disease outbreaks from the pond side thanks to the increasing use of in-field diagnostics as tools for quick and early animal disease identification. The regulatory framework for shrimp disease diagnostics is still evolving in some countries, which can hinder market growth.

In Asia, populations of wild shrimp have been shown to contain viral infections that cause fatalities in aquaculture systems. Increased capacity to carry out quarantine, surveillance, and disease identification and management is required in developing nations that are significant producers of aquaculture shrimp in order to raise awareness of the risk of disease transmission associated with the importation of live animals for aquaculture. For example, some shrimp importing countries or regions (e.g., European Union) have adopted management regulations to protect crustacean domestic populations by adopting measures with respect of import of aquaculture animals, sustainable fisheries, and ecosystems.

Will the United States Be a Lucrative Market for Shrimp disease diagnostics?

“Easy Availability of Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Tools”

The United States market held about 9.0% market share of the global market in 2022 and it is anticipated to expand the global market due to advancement and easy accessibility of genetic tools.

The higher prevalence of infections, rising healthcare expenditure, implementation of favorable government initiatives, efficient healthcare infrastructures, easy access to technologically advanced instruments, and availability of skilled laboratory technicians all contribute to market growth in the United States In aquaculture America 2021 conference, the United States aquaculture society joined with National Aquaculture Association and the Aquaculture Suppliers Association for meetings regarding the sustainable aquaculture production and more attention to health management and diseases prevention.

Why is the China Market Booming?

“Government’s Regulations and Diagnostics to Control Infection Spread and Economic Losses”

The Chinese market held around 19.4% market share of the global market in 2022 due to avoidance of infectious diseases in shrimp and economic losses.

China is the world's largest consumer of seafood, and the demand for shrimp has been increasing in recent years. China is dominating for shrimp farming globally and diagnosing shrimp diseases to avoid any economic loss. Thus, it is also helpful to prevent spread of infections from seafood to humans.

  • According to published article on shrimp viral diseases, international trade, and import risk assessment in Indian Journal of Virology in 2012, China leads the world in aquacultured shrimp production, with around 1.3 million tons produced

The Chinese government has implemented regulations to ensure the safety and quality of seafood products, including shrimp. This has led to an increased demand for disease diagnostics to comply with these regulations. The diagnostic innovations (real-time PCR and ELISA assays) have increased the accuracy and speed of disease diagnosis, leading to increased adoption.
