Spheric Research

In brief

Spheric Research is a specialized consulting and market analysis firm with expertise in aquaculture and alternative proteins. We are passionate about these growing industries, that are so fundamental to the future of our planet, both in lowering carbon emissions and in feeding a growing world population. The foundation of Spheric Research’s advantage is an expansive, in-house database which meticulously tracks development in these nascent future food industries. We also build custom data, insights, and strategy for clients through our consultancy work based on deep subject matter expertise. Our clients include major publicly traded corporations, investment banks, and government agencies.


With our unique data, we generate unique business intelligence and market analysis on areas of expertise. We provide regular reports on aquaculture and alternative proteins, including insect protein, fermentation, plant-based and cultivated meats. We invest heavily in attending industry events and trade shows, so our market intelligence is based on primary source inputs. Our first ever report on alternative protein ingredients for aquaculture was published in 2017. We have followed up this report with three annual editions of our Land-based Aquaculture Report, which provides unique data on this fast-growing new industry. Our global data and insights enable our customers to make informed decisions to navigate risk. 


On top of all our data, we offer bespoke consultancy services, enhanced by data, but importantly employing customized research and strategy. Our team has deep subject matter expertise and a track record of enabling strategic decisions across the food industry, with successful outcomes. By utilizing targeted expert research, our consulting team can unearth the intricacies of early-stage or obscure industries which often have few good published secondary sources. The company is primarily based in the United States, as well as having a presence in the United Kingdom and Chile. As a boutique firm, you will engage with our senior team directly.
