Investments by companies to increase penetration, increasing consumer expenditure on seafood, and government investments & regulations to increase sustainable catch are expected to drive the expansion of the surimi market size over the coming years.

Players Focused on Inorganic Strategies to Increase Penetration

The surimi market is highly fragmented in nature, with the top players accounting nearly one-fifth of the market share. Due to this fragmented nature, players in the market have shown high tendency for acquisitions and mergers to increase their revenue share. For example, in January 2018, Viciunai Group acquired Creative Seafood France. This acquisition was aimed at increasing the presence of the company in France, as CSF France holds 10 to 15% of the French surimi market. Similar acquisitions are being carried out by many companies. The surimi market is expected to remain fragmented till the end of the forecast period.
