Demand of Caviar from Restaurants and Specialty Stores Set to Drive Caviar Market Globally :

Global Caviar Market – Overview

Increasing demand of caviar from restaurants and specialty stores is supporting the market growth globally. Market Research Future, a firm which specializes in market reports related to the Food, Beverages & Nutrition sector among others, recently forecasted in its report on Global Caviar Market Research Report- Forecast to 2022 that the Caviar market will demonstrate an exceptional CAGR during the forecast period.

Caviar is mainly obtained from Sturgeon fish caught in the Caspian Sea and it is considered expensive, but after the collapse and vanishing of the Soviet Empire, the stocks came dangerously close to extinction due to uncontrolled fishing of local fishermen just to survive. Now the prices of caviar are even higher and likely to continue increasing in the upcoming years. Russian Beluga caviar is hailed as the most prized caviar compared to other caviar types available in the market. Large caviar farms around the world are found in Italy, Israel, France, the US, and Uruguay.

Vegan caviar is the vegetarian and vegan-friendly alternative which is made from a unique formula of seaweed which is available in huge quantity in oceans. Vegan caviar is becoming popular in health conscious consumers as it is low in calories and cholesterol but it is high in calcium. The production of vegan caviar does not prove to be detrimental for fish stocks and it is also not dependent on the fishing industry. These factors are playing the key role to boost the vegan caviar market.
