Bivalve Market size was valued at USD 28,366.7 million in 2021 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% from 2024-2030. Bivalves are a class of marine and freshwater mollusks that have laterally compressed bodies enclosed by a shell consisting of two hinged parts. They are also known as Lamellibranchiata and Pelecypoda. The class includes clams, oysters, cockles, mussels, scallops, and numerous other families that live in saltwater, as well as a number of families that live in freshwater. The majority are filter feeders. Bivalves have bilaterally symmetrical and laterally flattened bodies, with a blade-shaped foot, vestigial head, and no radula. At the dorsal or back region of the shell is the hinge point or line, which contains the umbo and beak, and the lower, curved margin is the ventral or underside region. The anterior or front of the shell is where the byssus (when present) and foot are located, and the posterior of the shell is where the siphons are located. The growth of the bivalves market is being driven by a number of factors, such as The increasing demand for bivalves as a source of protein and other nutrients. The growing popularity of aquaculture as a source of bivalves. The increasing demand for bivalves in emerging markets. The development of new bivalve products and applications. It is expected that the volume of clams, cockles, and ark shells will grow by 1.9% CAGR over the forecast years, reaching 6,584.8 thousand tonnes by 2028. Similarly, it is anticipated that the volume of mussels will grow by 1.7% CAGR over the forecast years, reaching 2,356.4 thousand tonnes by 2028. The market for oysters is also expected to grow by 3.0% CAGR over the forecast years, reaching 8,021.5 thousand tonnes by 2028. Finally, it is predicted that the volume of scallops and pectens will grow by 1.6% CAGR over the forecast years, reaching 2,296.1 thousand tonnes by 2028. These projections suggest a promising future for the seafood market in the years to come.

Bivalve Market Dynamics

Bivalves are a good source of protein, providing about 15-20 grams of protein per 100 grams of cooked meat. This is comparable to the amount of protein found in other types of seafood, such as fish and shrimp. Bivalves are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fatty acids that are beneficial for heart health. Omega-3 fatty acids can help to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems. Bivalves are also a good source of other nutrients, such as zinc, iron, and vitamin B12. Zinc is important for immune function, iron is important for carrying oxygen in the blood, and vitamin B12 is important for nerve function. Bivalves are a sustainable food source, as they can be farmed without the use of antibiotics or hormones. This makes them a good choice for people who are concerned about the environmental impact of their food choices. All these factors are responsible for the growth of market in the forecast period. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that while the overall production of molluscs has increased, their proportion in global aquaculture has steadily decreased over time. In 1950, filter-feeding bivalves made up 46.5% of live weight production (14.5% of edible food production), but by 2019, this had decreased to 20.6% live weight (5.3% edible food). The proportion of molluscs in mariculture output has also decreased, from 90.1% by live weight production (65.1% by edible food production) in 1980 to 74.1% live weight (36.9% edible food) in 2019. Although mollusc farming has potential for expansion, it faces obstacles such as low demand in many countries, coastal pollution leading to poor water quality, and development restrictions from ocean acidification. While there are initiatives to extend mussel farming to the open sea, production costs remain high, output is limited, and it largely caters to niche luxury markets.
