Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Imports account for a rising proportion of domestic seafood demand, increasing competitive pressures for the Seafood Processing industry. However, industry operators have effectively responded to rising imports in the domestic market by developing export channels. Consequently, industry revenue has grown at an annualised 4.9% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $1.4 billion.

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The Seafood Processing industry is in the mature phase of its industry life cycle. Industry value added, a measure of the industry’s contribution to the overall economy, is forecast to grow by an annualised 1.4% over the 10 years through 2021-22. The industry is underperforming relative to the overall economy, with GDP forecast to grow by 2.5% over the same period.

Over the past five years, revenue growth has slowed in the industry and become less volatile. Furthermore, some major companies have outperformed the overall industry. Combined with increased merger and acquisition activity, this has increased market share concentration. Higher concentration and rising imports penetration have led to enterprise and establishment numbers declining over this period.
