Seaweed Snacks Market by Type (Flakes, Nori Sheets, Chips, Bars, Others), Source (Red, Green, Brown), Distribution Channel (Specialty Stores, Hypermarkets & Supermarkets, Online, Convenience Stores), Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2021 to 2028

/EIN News/ -- Newark, NJ, Feb. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global seaweed snacks market is expected to grow from USD 1.43 billion in 2020 to USD 2.80 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

Some of the various significant factors that are driving the growth of the global seaweed snacks market are the healthy nutritional profile of seaweed snacks, the rise of health-consciousness in consumers, a rising vegan population, and increasing environmental concerns since seaweed is a carbon-negative food source. Moreover, seaweed snacks are naturally allergen-free, GMO- free, and gluten-free, which is boosting the market.

Seaweeds are a rich source of minerals, fiber, iodine, folic acid, potassium, vitamins, antioxidants, protein, amino acid, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acid. Seaweed is a staple food in Asian nations such as Japan, South Korea, and China. An example of a seaweed snack is a Nori sheet. Nori sheets are highly nutritious and low-calorie strips that have become an attractive alternative to other snacks like potato chips, which are generally quite unhealthy. Moreover, the introduction of many new flavors like wasabi, teriyaki, Korean BBQ, chili lime, and sweet onion are anticipated to increase the client base of the market in the next few years. 

With the outbreak of a global pandemic, many have faced salary cuts and job losses. Covid-19 has become a threat to the entire world's economy and has negatively impacted all kinds of markets, including the seaweed snacks market. With less disposable income and broken supply chains, the market's growth is expected to slow down.


Key players operating in the global seaweed snacks market include Oceans Halo, SeaSnax, Roland's foods, Eden foods, Taokaenoi Food & Marketing, Annie Chun's, and Singha Corporation, among others. To gain a significant market share in the global seaweed snacks market, the key players are now focusing on adopting strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. SeaSnax and Taokaenoi Food & Marketing are some of the biggest producers and suppliers of seaweed snacks in the global market.
