During COVID 19 pandemic and lockdown situation, governments of various countries restricted movements and citizens preferred to stay at home as a precautionary measure. Due to this, overall production and supply chains were disturbed. Thus, the market experienced a shortfall in worldwide sales due to the disturbed supply chains and reduced consumer demand. Though, citizens are more health-conscious and focused on improving their immune system to maintain fitness.

Furthermore, rising consumer awareness of the long-term negative effects of chemical-based products on human skin and scalp, as well as the rising prevalence of skin issues such as inflammation, acne, and psoriasis, is promoting the use of natural components such as black seed oil and boost the market growth in upcoming years. Pharmaceutical firms' increased attempts to limit the use of chemical-based ingredients in various medicine formulations could encourage the use of organically derived substances such as black seed oil in drug manufacture, hence increasing sales. However, a lack of consumer understanding of the product's health advantages, particularly in developing countries, may hamper the market's expansion.
