top 4 leading companies global tuna market


American Tuna, Thai Union Group PCL, Wild Planet Foods, Frinsa del Noroeste S.A., Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, Clover Leaf Seafoods Corp, and StarKist Tuna, among others are the key players in the global tuna market.


The global tuna market size reached a value of USD 57.96 billion in 2021. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5.1% in the forecast period of 2022 and 2027 to reach a value of about USD 78.20 billion by 2027. Tuna is a saltwater fish found predominantly in the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean's subtropical and temperate seas. It is a good source of necessary nutrients, as well as providing strength, lowering blood pressure, boosting the immune system and muscles, preventing cancer, and losing weight. Factors such as expanding urbanisation, a growing urge to try foreign cuisine, increased health consciousness, long shelf life, and the availability of diverse types of tuna, such as skipjack, albacore, bigeye, and yellowfin, are all supporting the growth of the global tuna market.


Europe is the world's largest consumer of canned tuna. Middle Eastern countries such as Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, which are among the world's largest tuna importers, have seen their markets expand. This is because the Middle East has substantially lower duties on canned tuna imports.


Due to people's hectic lifestyles all around the world, the markets for canned and other frozen, ready-to-eat versions have accelerated industry growth. The market has grown due to the long shelf life and quick distribution of these commodities over wider distances. The industry's main companies have had tuna certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), which has been caught and processed using sustainable ways due to rising environmental concerns. This phenomenon is projected to boost tuna market expansion in the next years, in conjunction with rising health consciousness.
