A small free-swimming crustacean that is often marine is known as a shrimp and has an elongated body, a long tail, and a single pair of pincers. Shrimps are typically found close to the ocean's surface, in rivers and lakes, and along some coasts. The majority of its species are very valuable as food and have huge economic significance.


Europe accounts for the major market for seafood and fish. One of the main seafood products consumed in Spain, Portugal, France, and Italy is shrimp. Shrimps are a rich source of proteins and omega-3 fats, which have benefits like improved bone and brain health and lowered risk of cardiovascular diseases. Such benefits are increasing the demand for shrimp among the health-conscious consumers.


The rising per capita consumption of seafood across the continent is driving the growth of the Europe shrimp market. The primary drivers include the rising demand for seafood products at competitive prices and the transition in the shrimp processing industry toward high volume and frozen product markets. The market is also expanding due to a number of other factors, including the region’s strong food service sector and its growing population. Along with the demand for sustainably certified seafood, the rise in sales of pre-packaged and frozen fish products is anticipated to continue as a major trend over the projected period.
