Description

The global lobster market reached a value of US$ 5.7 Billion in 2018 growing at a CAGR of 16.7% during 2011-2018. Lobsters are marine crustaceans with a long cylindrical body, muscular tail, stalked eyes and five pairs of jointed legs. Covered with a chitinous exoskeleton, lobsters are typically greenish-brown in colour but turn bright red when cooked. They are a rich source of copper, phosphorous, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and vitamin E and B12. Lobsters also provide protection against thyroid due to the presence of selenium which functions as an antioxidant. Apart from this, consumption of lobsters is known to reduce inflammation, boost energy and improve cognition.

Currently, the majority of lobsters are provided by Canada and the United States of America. The elimination of around 98% of the tariffs between Canada and the European Union under the recent Canada Free Trade Agreement (CETA) has been proactive in boosting Canadian exports to the northern European countries as well as creating new market opportunities in the southern European countries. In line with the decreasing trade in the EU, the US and tropical exporters are turning towards the Chinese market where lobsters have become an integral part of the luxurious dining experience supported by the rising purchasing power of the middle class. Additionally, the improving economic environment in both the developed and developing regions, and recovery in some of the major markets, including Russia and Brazil, are bolstering the market growth. Looking forward, the market is further expected to reach levels worth US$ 13.9 Billion by 2024.

Based on the species, the market has been segmented as American lobster, spiny lobster, rock lobster and European lobster. Currently, American lobsters dominate the market, holding the largest share.

On the basis of weight, lobsters having weight between 0.5 lb - 0.75 lb represent the largest size. They are followed by the lobsters having a weight between 0.76 lb - 3 lb and lobsters with weight more than 3 lb.

Based on the product type, whole lobster represented the most popular product followed by tail, lobster meat and claw.

On the basis of distribution channel, food services enjoy the leading position, followed by retail sectors.

Region-wise, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Others. Amongst these, North America is the leading market, accounting for the majority of the market share.

The competitive landscape of the market has also been examined. Some of the key players in the industry are East Coast Seafood, Garbo Lobster, High Liner Foods, Pescanova and Thai Union
