Rising Demand for Processed Foods with Sustainable Oil Production to Remain Pivotal for Cooking Oil Market Growth
Rising consumption of processed foods is expected to play a vital role in accelerating the cooking oil market growth. Consumer preference towards packaged foods has fuelled the adoption of various cooking oils by end users such as small food chains, restaurants, and households, thus giving an impetus to the market growth. In addition, the demand for vegetable oil worldwide is likely to increase backed by growing sales of processed food products. For instance, according to FAO and OECD, availability of vegetable oils across developed nations is likely to increase by 1.3% each year touching 9 kg per capita by 2030 as compared to 2020 which reflected a 7.96 kg per capita. In addition, manufacturers are mulling upon refining procedures, and cooking oil quality to achieve sustainability. Advanced methods of refining by using new technology are being used to achieve high shelf-life of cooking oils without compromising quality and clean label status. Moreover, issues related to land use are being addressed while producing cooking oils. This factor continues to influence the growth of the cooking oil market on the global front.
Rising Palm Oil Sales to Largely Contribute Toward Value Growth of Cooking Oil Market
The consumption of palm oil has been on an upswing since past few years and is expected to maintain status quo going forward. Main exporters of palm oil include Malaysia and Indonesia while key countries importing palm oil are India, China, Netherlands, Italy, Pakistan, Egypt, Kenya, United States, Russia, Germany, and Belgium among others. According to OEC, in 2020, Malaysia accounted for 31% of the palm oil exports while Indonesia accounted for 52.4% of the exports reflecting an export valuation of US$ 10.6 billion and US$17.9 Bn respectively in the year. Furthermore, sale of palm oil across various end use sectors globally is manly owing to its low pricing as compared to other cooking oil types. In this backdrop, the growing sales and import-export scenario of palm oil is expected to largely contribute towards the revenue growth of the cooking oil market.
Asia Pacific to Emerge Highly Lucrative for Global Cooking Oil Market
Asia Pacific is likely to hold a significant value share in the cooking oil market. Crucial factors that have been propelling the demand for cooking oil in the region include dietary changes, improved standards of living and rising consumption of processed foods. In addition, the sale of vegetable oil in emerging economies such as India and China is expanding significantly on the back of growing awareness regarding benefits of vegetable oil consumption. In this regard, the India vegetable oil market and China’s vegetable oil market have been witnessing momentous growth, in turn pacing potential avenues for the cooking oil market in the region. That said, the scenario for palm oil, soy oil, coconut oil, and olive oil among other vegetable oils is likely to remain optimistic in Asia Pacific.
In addition, the consumption of fish oil is also expected to surge in the region. Mainly backed by a massive concentration and progress of the aquaculture sector in economies such as Indonesia, Vietnam, India, and China, the demand of fish oil is likely to further grow. Also, growing awareness apropos to rising health concerns has triggered the consumption of fish oil and is positioned as a nutritional supplement for consumers. Likewise, olive oil and its virgin forms also gained high traction across Asian countries. Owing to its nutritional advantages such as low fat, antioxidant properties and its use to manage obesity and weight has fuelled its demand and consumption. Albeit a high production volume of olive oil in the region, the demand quotient has been surging leading to additional imports of the product. This scenario is likely to contribute towards the cooking oil market growth. Furthermore, region specific factors such as high consumer base owing to increasing population, stable GDP per capita growth, altering living and eating standards and rise in health conscious consumers continue to drive cooking oil sales thus bolstering growth of the cooking oil market in Asia Pacific.
