Market Overview

Shrimp are decapod shellfish with long bodies and primarily swimming movements, most commonly caridea and dendrobranchiata. More contract definitions may be restricted to caridea, smaller species of either bunch or marine species. Shrimp may be synonymous with prawn in a broader sense, encompassing stalk-eyed swimming shellfish with long contract strong tails (midriffs), long hairs (radio wires), and slim legs. Any small shellfish that resembles a shrimp is commonly referred to as one. Crabs and lobsters have strong walking legs, whereas shrimp have lean, delicate legs that they primarily use for roosting. Shrimp are plentiful and limitless. Thousands of species have adapted to a wide range of environments. On most coasts and estuaries, as well as in streams and lakes, they can be found bolstering close to the seafloor. A few species flip off the seafloor and plunge into the silt to avoid predators. They usually live between the ages of one and seven. Shrimp are frequently singular, even though they can form huge schools amid the spawning season.

Driving Factors

Consumers' growing awareness of the health benefits of products is strengthening the market. Because of its high protein content and low levels of calories, fat, and cholesterol, shrimp is recognized as a nutritious seafood choice. This trend of health-consciousness has resulted in a shift in consumer preferences toward healthier food options, such as shrimp. Consumers are becoming more proactive in terms of diet management and the search for healthier protein sources. Shrimp's nutritional profile is in line with these requirements, making it an appealing option for health-conscious people. Shrimp also contains important vitamins and minerals, such as selenium and omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health and cognitive function. Consumers are actively incorporating shrimp into their meal plans as they become more educated about its nutritional value. This increased awareness has resulted in increased consumption of shrimp, catalyzing the growth of the shrimp market in the United States.


Restraining Factors

Shrimp farming is detrimental to the ecosystem because it causes salinity, mangrove destruction, pollution, sedimentation, land erosion, extinction of marine species, and loss of biodiversity. In general, shrimp aquaculture requires a diverse, dependable, and cost-effective source of seeds. The output would not be possible without such a source of seeds. 


Market Segment

  • In 2023, the farmed segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the environment, the United States shrimp market is segmented into farmed, and wild. Among these, the farmed segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Farmed shrimp, also known as aquaculture shrimp, are shrimp that are raised in controlled environments such as ponds or tanks rather than being caught in the wild. This shrimp production method provides several advantages that contribute to its market dominance. It ensures a consistent and dependable supply all year. Farmed shrimp can be produced continuously, unlike wild-caught shrimp, which is subject to fluctuations in availability due to natural factors and fishing restrictions. This consistent supply meets the growing demand for shrimp while reducing reliance on the unpredictability of wild catches.


  • In 2023, the imports segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on domestic production and imports, the United States shrimp market is segmented into domestic production, and imports. Among these, the imports segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The United States heavily relies on imported shrimp to meet consumer demand, making it a critical market segment. Imported shrimp helps to grow the market by ensuring a consistent and diverse supply of shrimp products. Shrimp from a variety of countries, including major producers, enter the US market, offering a diverse selection of species, sizes, and preparations. This variety caters to consumer preferences while also expanding available options, thereby stimulating market growth.


  • In 2023, the penaeus vannamei segment accounted for the significant revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the species, the United States shrimp market is segmented into penaeus vannamei, penaeus monodon, macrobrachium rosenbergii, and others. Among these, the penaeus vannamei segment has a significant revenue share over the forecast period. The dominance of Penaeus vannamei, a farmed shrimp species, in the US market is a significant driver of market growth. Penaeus vannamei, also known as white leg shrimp or Pacific white shrimp, has the largest market share in the shrimp industry for a variety of reasons. It is popular due to its rapid growth rate and adaptability to various farming environments. When compared to other shrimp species, this species reaches market size relatively quickly, allowing for more efficient production and shorter production cycles. The ability to efficiently produce large quantities of penaeus vannamei shrimp meets the increasing product demand.


  • In 2023, the convenience stores segment accounted for a significant revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on distribution channels, the United States shrimp market is segmented into hypermarkets and supermarkets, convenience stores, hotels and restaurants, online stores, and others. Among these, the convenience stores segment has a significant revenue share over the forecast period. Convenience stores also contribute to market growth by providing consumers with accessible and convenient options for quick and on-the-go purchases. These stores frequently stock pre-packaged shrimp products, including ready-to-eat options, to cater to time-crunched customers looking for a quick seafood solution. Another driving force in the shrimp market is the inclusion of hotels and restaurants as distribution channels. Shrimp is a popular ingredient in restaurants, and demand from the hospitality industry drives overall market growth. To meet consumer demand for shrimp-based dishes, hotels, restaurants, and catering services rely on the availability of high-quality shrimp.
