Growth Drivers

Currently, the majority of lobsters are provided by Canada and the United States of America. The elimination of around 98% of the tariffs between Canada and the European Union under the recent Canada Free Trade Agreement (CETA) has been proactive in boosting Canadian exports to the northern European countries as well as creating new market opportunities in the southern European countries.

In line with the decreasing trade in the EU, the US and tropical exporters are turning towards the Chinese market where lobsters have become an integral part of the luxurious dining experience supported by the rising purchasing power of the middle class.

Additionally, the improving economic environment in both the developed and developing regions, and recovery in some of the major markets, including Russia and Brazil, are bolstering the market growth.
