Reasons to Make Shanghai Your Next Market


  • 1. China is the world’s biggest country with a colossal food and drink market – 1.3 billion people live, work, eat and drink in China.

  • 2. Wages and the middle class are on the rise, fueling consumption of imported goods. Real wages rose 400% from 2000-2014. Average income levels are expected to reach $10,700 by 2017 – a huge increase from 2012’s average of $6,200.

  • 3. China’s middle class is already larger than the US’ at 109 million people. By 2022, 54% of China’s population will be upper middle class. More purchasing power points towards bigger export opportunities as China’s taste for foreign foods grows.

  • 4. Seafood consumption is increasing annually, matching rising import levels and incomes. By 2020, each person will eat 35.9 kg, while urban consumption of seafood has already passed 40kg per capital.

  • 5. Chinese seafood imports are expected to exceed $20 billion by 2020. Domestic overfishing and environmental concerns are pointing towards a greater demand for imported seafood.

  • 6. Shanghai’s individual imports are on the up. January-December 2018 saw China’s second city import 182  tons of seafood – a 68.96% increase against 2017’s figures.

  • 7. Foreign countries are already stepping up export levels. Canada boosted its seafood sales to China by 11% in 2015, exporting 94,000 tons with a value of $553 million.

  • 8. Aquaculture operations are crying out for more efficient, more cost effective, updated technologies.
