[Research Report] In terms of revenue, the global Precision Aquaculture market was valued at US$ 422.43 million in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 1,209.96 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.5% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2028.

Precision aquaculture involves various hardware and software components interconnected with each other. Sensors installed in the marine environment form a key part of these components as they monitor, interpret, analyze, and offer decision support for farm operations. A wide variety of sensors, such as acoustic, optical, and biological sensors, are used to gain insights into the farm environment, which assist in making decisions to enhance fish health and economic return, along with mitigating risk to the environment. The precision aquaculture benefits through farming operation repeatability, improving accuracy, facilitating autonomous and continuous monitoring, and offering reliable decision support. Moreover, it helps reduce dependency on manual operations and subjective assessments, thereby enhancing the staff safety. As per IEEE Xplore, aquaculture is likely to supply ~62% of fish for human consumption by 2030. Thus, the increase in yields of aquaculture across the world offers significant growth opportunities to the precision aquaculture market players.
