The canned tuna market remained dormant in 2015, though raw material prices were at a six year low.
The impact of falling raw material prices in 2015 was minimal on the large and traditional markets of the USA, Europe and Australia, indicating saturated consumer demand for traditional canned tuna. In contrast, US imports of non-canned tuna, including frozen tuna fillets and high-value processed tuna in pouches increased in 2015. Taking advantage of lower raw material prices, European tuna canners also imported more cooked loins to produce high-value products.
