IndexBox has just published a new report: 'World - Frozen Fish - Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends and Insights'. Here is a summary of the report's key findings.

In 2019, frozen fish trade decreased both in kind and in value terms, mainly due to geopolitical tensions holding back economic growth. In particular, the trade conflict between China and the United States of America, the world's two largest frozen fish merchants, affected business revenue through tariffs and wider economic uncertainty. According to FAO conclusions, this volatile market environment has led to exceptional price volatility across several categories of fish products. Prices have hit record lows or highs for several key species, including tuna, pangasius, and salmon.

By the end of 2019, the prospects for 2020 were somewhat more positive, as the global geopolitical situation looked like improving. However, the unprecedented for our time, the COVID-19 pandemic has completely revolutionized the global economy. In an attempt to contain the spread of the virus, governments around the world have introduced a number of measures, including directives on social exclusion, restrictions on working hours, and travel restrictions. The frozen fish sector, along with most industries, faces a gloomy forecast of demand, as well as a number of supply problems.

With the closure of the restaurant industry, the demand for catering services has evaporated, while retail sales have been marked by extreme volatility, as periods of panic shopping are accompanied by constant lulls. Demand for canned and frozen foods has risen sharply, as households tend to stock up on non-perishable food with fresh seafood. At the same time, online distributors are reporting increased interest as consumers are exploring home-based retail alternatives. However, in general, demand fell sharply, and prices fell on many types, especially those that are important for the restaurant industry. Other effects of the outbreak include the reversal of key seafood trade events, many of which provide important opportunities for networking in the industry and sourcing.

With regard to supply, labor shortages and other economic problems, including grim prospects for demand, have an extremely negative impact on seafood production worldwide. The delay in fisheries in aquaculture and a sharp decline in stocks, while the entire fishing fleet is idle. Subsequent actions, including processors, were affected by a lack of raw materials in addition to other operational difficulties. At the same time, logistics became expensive and slow, as carriers had to deal with closed or limited road borders and delays in medical examinations, while large-scale cancellations of flights directly affected the trade in some high-quality fresh products that are transported by air.
