Technavio has announced the top eight leading vendors for the global fresh fish and seafood market in their latest research report. This report also lists 17 other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth over the forecast period.

To identify the top vendors, Technavio’s market research analysts have considered the top contributors to the overall revenue of this market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the retail sales of fresh fish and seafood in terms of volume sold through various distribution channels such as supermarkets and hypermarkets, wholesalers, open markets, fish shops, and traditional grocery stores.

“Currently, e-commerce accounts for approximately 12% of the world’s retail trade, and its share is likely to increase further during the forecast period. Online and e-commerce channels support both B2B and B2C operations. Given the thriving nature of the market, B2B platforms like Ocean Executive are anticipated to play a key role in connecting stakeholders in the fresh seafood market across the supply chain, from fishermen, processors, and wholesalers to grocery stores and large restaurant chains,” said Vijay Sarathi, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for food and beverages.

“Customers prefer to shop online and pay for their orders with credit or debit cards, which helps them avoid time-consuming journeys and checkout lines. This trend has prompted many fish and seafood vendors to focus on internet-savvy customer segment and venture into the new online retail format,” added Vijay.
