Edible Oils and Fats Market: Overview

The growing importance of vegetable oils as key functional ingredients that reduce the risk of cardiovascular disorders as well as the possibility of breast cancer is expected to continue to be a positive growth driver. Furthermore, because of its exceptional anti-inflammatory properties, the omega-3 fatty acid is expected to gain popularity as a nutritional constituent in the food industry, prompting the adoption of oil produced from soybean, canola, and flax seeds. Over the last few years, cooking oil manufacturers have increased their investment in the development of low-cholesterol products. Furthermore, changing dietary patterns and a hectic lifestyle among working-class professionals are expected to shift consumer preferences and drive demand for sunflower and coconut oil for cooking. Coconut oil is high in fatty acids, which help to protect against bacteria and other pathogens. Olive oil, on the other hand, is capable of balancing the HDL to LDL cholesterol ratio, ensuring proper blood circulation.

Concerns about the negative effects of trans-fat consumption, such as an increased risk of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and brain stroke, are expected to promote the use of vegetable oil as a cooking alternative. Furthermore, because of the exceptional aroma of peanut or groundnut oil, edible oils are used as a flavouring agent. The growing number of hotels and restaurant chains from developing countries is expected to increase the utility of edible oils as a result of supportive government policies aimed at improving city infrastructure.

Global Edible Oils and Fats Market

COVID-19 Impact:

Because of the coronavirus crisis, the supply and demand for fats and oils in the global market have shifted, with increasing price uncertainty. Palm oil, the most common type of oil produced globally, suffered as demand fell around the world, trade was disrupted, and production was hampered. Governments in countries such as India, China, and the United States granted exemptions for the sector to continue operations with limited capacity despite the lockdowns. As production continued, these companies were able to mitigate the significant impact through the continuation of operations.

Edible Oils and Fats Market: Growth Drivers

Driver: Increased food demand helps boost global consumption of vegetable oils.

To produce uniformity in high-quality oil, edible oil products such as palm oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, and canola oil, among others, are generally purified using various methods such as degumming, neutralizing, bleaching, and deodorizing. Minor components, which are considered impurities, are physically or chemically separated during the purification process. Refined oils are the most common term for high-quality edible oils. Monounsaturated fats are abundant in refined oils. High-quality oils are produced using cutting-edge technology and are regarded as a rich source of nutrition. As a result, their consumption is increasing year after year due to increased application and a growing population.

Restraint: Fat and oil product labeling, and safety concerns

Significant changes in the competitive position of major vegetable oils imply significant cost impacts and potential threats to some food products. The global vegetable oil market is under pressure as a result of various legislations in this environment. Furthermore, due to the use of ambiguous terms such as vegetable fats or vegetable oils, there is a high degree of anonymity in the exact content of the food ingredients. As a result, the exact composition of the ingredient, as well as its role in the overall formulation, are unknown. New regulations requiring the labelling of trans-fatty acid levels in foods are putting pressure on manufacturers to switch to different formulations for producing hydrogenated oils, increasing demand for oils as an alternative to trans-fats.

Opportunity: Emerging use of fats and oils as trans-fat substitutes

Trans-fats are unsaturated fatty acids that are formed during the hydrogenation of vegetable oils or that are naturally produced in the guts of grazing animals. Trans fat consumption raises the level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood. A high LDL cholesterol level in the blood can increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Trans-fats are gradually being replaced by a much healthier substitute, namely unsaturated liquid vegetable oils such as olive, canola, corn, or soy oils, as consumer health consciousness grows.

Challenge: High reliance on imports, resulting in high end-product costs

Due to the scarcity of oilseeds in some domestic markets, there is a significant gap between demand and supply of oilseed processed products such as edible oil. Because of these countries' favorable climatic conditions, India and European countries import a large amount of palm oil from Indonesia and Malaysia, which are the leading producers. Because these countries rely heavily on imports of palm oil and shea butter, respectively, their import costs and end-product prices rise, posing a challenge to the market.
