Wheat Germ Oil Market: Growth Drivers

Growing applications in the cosmetics industry to propel market demand

The global wheat germ oil market is anticipated to witness surging growth in the application of the product in the personal care and cosmetics segment which is one of the fastest-growing industries with billions of consumers. The beauty industry of Australia is growing at a high CAGR and currently employs more than 120,000 people with a revenue of AUD 8.4 billion, as of 2022. Growing population, consumer awareness, and higher accessibility to the products are major reasons for growth in the personal care segment. Wheat germ oil has incredible results when used over time. For instance, it is known to be a potent antioxidant. These are substances that can help the skin fight damages caused due to environmental aggressors like pollution and ultraviolet (UV rays), also called oxidative damage. Hence, antioxidants have gained a massive following amongst the end-consumers which has resulted in more demand for rich sources of these substances like wheat germ oil.

Wheat Germ Oil Market: Restraints

High cost to restrict market expansion

Wheat germ oil is expensive owing to the long extraction process involved during production. Although wheat is grown in huge quantities across the globe, sourcing raw materials may not be difficult. However, the production process makes use of cold-press technology without any exposure to light or oxygen to avoid deterioration of the important nutrients. These factors combined lead to an increase in the final cost of the product. Given the exceptional benefits and high demand, as a standard rule of the economy, the price of the product is always high to maintain a level of exclusivity amongst the population.

Wheat Germ Oil Market: Opportunities

Growing applications in the pet industry to provide more growth opportunities

The global wheat germ oil market is projected to benefit from the increasing research and subsequent application of wheat germ oil in the pet industry, especially for dog care. Since wheat germ oil is highly rich in omega-3 which is a fatty acid that is capable of preventing stroke, and heart disease, amongst other medicinal benefits, they assist in keeping the animal health but have to be consumed under the guidance of qualified veterinarians. As the industry for animal care grows, the demand for wheat germ oil may be propelled toward new growth opportunities.

Wheat Germ Oil Market: Challenges

Side-effects associated with the oil to challenge market growth

Some people might be allergic to wheat germ oil and it is known to cause gas, diarrhea, dizziness, and nausea when consumed without proper medical consultation from the doctors. Hence, it is always recommended to contact a healthcare provider before consuming any external form of nutrients or medicines. Generally, doctors recommend 15 milligrams of wheat germ oil per day, however, every person has different requirements and overconsumption can lead to an upset stomach.

Wheat Germ Oil Market: Segmentation

The global wheat germ oil market is segmented based on application, production, distribution, and region.

Based on application, the global market divisions are pharmaceuticals, feed industry, food & beverages, dietary supplement, cosmetics & personal care industry, and others. In 2021, the global market registered the highest returns in the cosmetics & personal care sector owing to growing research & development activities in this segment. As the demand for more inclusive forms of personal care grows owing to reasons like an increase in competition, and the emergence of domestic players providing excellent quality products, amongst other factors, the demand for wheat germ oil is projected to gain higher momentum. It has the property of acting as an exceptional hair moisturizer. When used with other carrier oils in a ratio of 10:1 (10 parts of carrier oil and 1 part of wheat germ oil), it is known to deliver excellent results.

Based on distribution, the global market is divided into business-to-customer, and business-to-business, with business-to-consumer leading with the highest global market share. The high CAGR is influenced by the higher use of products in the industries that directly cater to the needs of the general population like healthcare, personal care, dietary supplement, and others. Hence market players can directly create a relationship with the consumers instead. Many providers of hair care ranges use wheat germ oil in their products to increase the product value. The global hair conditioner market may reach a value of USD 10 million by 2028.
