This by-product is used as bird feeds as well as an additive for the poultry and cattle fodder. This animal feed application is propelling the seeds market growth.

Product Insights

Most of the nuts including almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, pecans, and pistachios contain omega 6, omega 3 polyunsaturated, and monounsaturated fats with a slight amount of saturated fats. This may help to reduce the risk associated such as metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol level, and high blood pressure.

Moreover, eating nuts helps to improve the blood sugar level as well as lower the risk of certain kinds of cancers. Almonds are essential for lowering the LDL cholesterol, which is considered to be a bad cholesterol. In addition to this, almonds are consumed as a low calorie diet and they support in weight loss and lowering blood pressure.

Edible oil is one of the largest applications of the seeds. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) forecast in 2018-19, the world vegetable oil production will witness a growth of more than 3.0% as compared to the previous year, which reached a record level of approximately 204 million tons.

Form Insights

Some customers prefer raw natural nuts as they offer the natural flavor.

Most of the oil seeds such as peanuts, sunflower, and sesame seeds are first roasted and then the oil is extracted from them. Roasting of the oilseeds before oil extracting reduces the moisture content of the seeds. On the other hand, if oil is extracted from the raw seeds, it will contain some impurities and will hamper the quality of the edible oil. Some of the seeds including flaxseeds, olive oil, and safflower are extracted without roasting. Growing application of these seeds will increase the scope of the products in the foreseeable future.

The region has emerged as a prominent consumer of nuts and seeds on account of presence of a number of manufacturing units of bakery and confectionary in U.S. North America has witnessed the largest number of product launches over the past few years.

For instance, in December 2015, Almond Board of California (ABC) launched an initiative, namely Accelerated Innovation Management (AIM). This was an innovative strategic move that is designed to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the almond industry. These initiative will propel the growth of the product over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a highly lucrative regional market, expanding at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2019 to 2025. The growth is majorly attributed to rising awareness regarding organic products, along with shifting consumer preference for high nutritional food in emerging economies including China and India.
