Mussels are increasingly becoming popular due to their nutritional content and multiple methods of cooking and consumption. They are easy to prepare and consume with cooking methods being as simple as steaming. With the increase in home cooking habits, seafood and mussel sales have seen a sharp incline. Mussels are present in the market in the form of either half-shell or whole/intact. The whole shell segment holds a majority of the market share across regions.

Global rise in the consumption of mussels can be due to rising income and rapid urbanization in developing countries, as well as fast-expanding food processing and supply chain companies in Asia & Pacific and other developing areas. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect of mussels in the treatment of arthritis, joint pain, and asthma, along with the high content of omega-3, account for major usage across the world.
