This market research report identifies players like Guangdong Boyu Group, Hagen, Penn-Plax, Qian Hu, and Spectrum Brands to be some of the key vendors in the global aquarium accessories market. This research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by product type (decorative items, filtration systems, temperature control systems, and other aquarium accessories) and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Overview of the global aquarium accessories market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global aquarium accessories market to grow at a CAGR of almost 5% over the forecast period. Fish keeping has become one of the most popular hobbies among millions of enthusiasts across the globe, and most of the fish species kept in aquariums are freshwater species. The surging demand for ornamental fish among hobbyists is one of the major driving forces contributing to the sales of aquarium accessories. Hobbyists are increasingly seeking products such as aeration equipment, substrate, tanks, ornaments, and fish food.  The growing interest of individuals in keeping aquarium fish has resulted in the establishment of new stores that sell aquarium-related products and services such as installations, maintenance, and cleaning. The aquarium stores are also employing skilled and knowledgeable staff to assist consumers in maintaining their aquariums regularly at their residence.

The aquarium industry is witnessing the growing preference for technology-integrated products among aquarists and hobbyists. As a result, most manufacturers are introducing equipment for recreating aquariums that are small, smart, and more efficient to facilitate the easy maintenance and cleaning of the aquarium. Aquariums are also being designed to be compact to house corals and delicate reef vertebrates. Furthermore, some vendors are also coming up with energy efficient aquarium accessories and new programmable smart devices that offer maintenance-free performance for aquarists and hobbyists. These devices are more reliable and require less monitoring. Smart devices such as aquarium control systems help hobbyist to manage pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential parameters, and lighting simultaneously.

According to the aquarium industry statistics report, the market is extremely competitive as the players compete on the basis of product differentiation, portfolios, and pricing.

In 2015, the decorative items segment accounted for the largest share of the aquarium accessories market and will continue its market dominance throughout the forecast period.

Hobbyists are re-creating aquariums based on diverse themes and are incorporating a variety of plants, ornaments, backgrounds, substrates, and related decorative items in their tanks. The rising installations of aquariums for interior decoration and the therapeutic benefits associated with them will boost the growth of this segment over the next four years.
