Largest Market


Highest Growing Market

Asia Pacific

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mushroom Cultivation Market is accounted for $19.77 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $29.53 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. One of the most advantageous agricultural ventures that can be launched with little capital and available space is mushroom cultivation. Many people are becoming more and more interested in mushroom farming as a secondary source. Mushroom farming is currently the most lucrative and successful industry. Because it quickly converts farmers' arduous labor into profit, it is steadily gaining popularity.

According to the China Business Research Institute, the country was the largest edible mushroom producer at a global level and reached an estimated annual yield of 38.42 million tonnes in 2017. This accounted for about 75% of the total global output.

Market Dynamics:


Rising consumer awareness of health

The global Mushroom Cultivation market expected to drive growth during the forecast period. Consumer demand for foods that are high in nutrients and low in fat and cholesterol is anticipated to fuel global growth. Because it contains fibers and digestive enzymes that support gut and immune health, its use in dietary supplements has increased. Moreover, the explosive growth of the food service industry is driving up demand for restaurants, hotels, and cafeterias. And also, by incorporating fungus powders into smoothies, sauces, and soups, mushroom cultivation can offer nutritional and health benefits.


Seasonal changes

The global Mushroom Cultivation market expected to hinder growth during the forecast period. Since mushrooms are extremely sensitive to changes in temperature, humidity, and light certain seasons are usually when they grow the best. For instance, while some types of mushrooms prefer warm temperatures and high humidity, others prefer cooler temperatures and low humidity. Accordingly, it can be challenging for farmers to maintain a steady supply of mushrooms throughout the year because seasonal variations can have a significant impact on the availability and cost of mushrooms on the market. Furthermore, regional or national restrictions on the availability of some mushroom species may cause seasonal variations in supply and demand.


Increase in the adoption of the newest technologies

During the anticipated period, the market for mushroom cultivation is anticipated to fuel growth. As the major market players increase their efforts to adopt cutting-edge technologies like computerized and automated technologies, the commercial production of mushrooms will rise. This is expected to create a wide range of opportunities for market players in the expansion of the global mushroom cultivation market during the forecast period. However, the development and advancement of contemporary technologies, such as composting, growing mushrooms on non-composted substrate, computerized monitoring, automated mushroom harvesting, and new techniques for preparing spawn and sterilizing substrate, will boost the productivity of mushroom culture in the years to come.


Competition from competing food items

Growth is anticipated to be hampered by the global mushroom cultivation market. Numerous other foods, such as meat, poultry, fish, and other vegetables, compete with mushrooms on the market. The demand for mushrooms as a meat substitute may decline as a result of the growing popularity of meat substitutes, particularly plant-based burgers and sausages. Additionally, since some varieties of mushrooms are more popular than others, consumer preferences for particular varieties may also have an impact on competition.

Covid-19 Impact:

The mushroom cultivation industry has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply shortages and price increases are the result of disruptions in global supply chains that have affected the availability of inputs. Furthermore, reducing sales and harming farmers' profitability is the industry's decreased demand, which comes from the foodservice sector, where a large portion of mushrooms are consumed. An increase in demand for locally sourced and sustainably grown mushrooms has resulted from the pandemic's emphasis on the value of food safety and hygiene. Despite these obstacles, the mushroom cultivation industry has proven resilient and has adjusted to the shifting market conditions by diversifying its sales channels, investigating new markets, and putting new technologies to use to boost productivity and efficiency.

The Button mushrooms segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The mushroom variety most frequently grown and consumed worldwide in the mushroom cultivation market is the button mushroom, which is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period. These mushrooms are adaptable in terms of their culinary uses, have a mild flavor, and are relatively simple to grow. They are frequently used in many different dishes, such as salads, soups, stir-fries, and pizzas, among others. Moreover, button mushrooms are widely accessible in grocery stores and supermarkets all over the world due to their popularity and high demand.

The canned segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

During the anticipated period, the mushroom cultivation market's highest CAGR is anticipated to be in the canned segment. This is a result of their convenience and longer shelf life, which make them a well-liked option among customers and foodservice providers. In the food industry, processed and canned mushrooms are frequently used as an ingredient in a variety of dishes, such as soups, sauces, and gravies. Moreover, the growth of online grocery stores and e-commerce platforms has made it simpler for consumers to buy processed and canned mushrooms, which has increased demand for them and their market growth.

Region with largest share:

In terms of both production and consumption, the European region is anticipated to hold the largest market share for mushroom cultivation during the anticipated period. Major mushroom producers and exporters include the Netherlands, Poland, and France, while major mushroom consumers include Germany, the UK, and Italy. The robust culinary traditions and rising public awareness of the health benefits of mushrooms are the main factors driving Europe's high demand for mushrooms. However, due to the region's rich culinary traditions, increasing knowledge of the nutritional benefits of mushrooms, and the presence of significant mushroom producers and consumers, Europe currently holds a dominant position in the world of mushroom cultivation.

Region with highest CAGR:

The mushroom cultivation market is predicted to grow at the highest CAGR in Asia-Pacific due to rising demand in nations like China, India, and Japan. The development of new technologies for mushroom cultivation, favorable government initiatives and subsidies for mushroom farming, rising consumer awareness of the health benefits of mushrooms, and other factors are also anticipated to contribute to the market's expansion in this region. Moreover, it is also anticipated that the rising acceptance of vegetarian and vegan diets in nations like India will aid in the expansion of the regional mushroom cultivation market.
