Report Overview

The growth of the market is being driven by the increasing use of rice bran derivatives in food and beverage applications as healthy alternatives to traditional oils and fats. Furthermore, the perceived health benefits offered by rice bran oil are also driving the demand for the market. The COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the market owing to the rise in the number of consumers opting for healthier alternatives. The pandemic also highlighted the importance of a healthy diet, thereby increasing the demand for healthy oils.

Growing concerns over the risk of heart diseases, diabetes, and brain stroke due to the consumption of trans-fat consumption are also promoting the use of rice-bran derivatives. Rice bran oil is one of the most popular rice bran derivatives, and its demand has been steadily increasing due to its numerous health benefits. Rice bran oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, and other essential nutrients, which make it a healthier alternative to other vegetable oils.

Furthermore, advances in processing and extraction technology have improved the quality and efficiency of rice bran derivatives production. For example, the use of supercritical CO2 extraction has enabled the production of high-quality rice bran oil with minimal solvent residue. For instance, in May 2022, U.S.-based RiceBran Technologies announced the expansion of the company’s facility in Minnesota. Through the expansion, the company aims to double the capacity of the pearling mill to cater to the growing demand for grain-based ingredients such as rice and other ancient grains.

Also, the development of new rice bran derivatives and improved processing methods have expanded the range of applications for rice bran products. For example, rice bran wax is now being used as an ingredient in cosmetics, and rice bran protein is being used in sports nutrition and animal feed products.

Product Insights

Rice bran oil dominated the product segment accounting for the highest revenue share of over 74% in 2021. The demand for rice bran oil is driven by the high demand for fat-free foods coupled with rising consumer health consciousness. The presence of essential nutrients such as gamma, Vitamin E, and oryzanol make rice bran-derived products an ideal choice for consumers who want to lower their cholesterol levels to prevent the risk of chronic diseases. In addition, the neutral taste of the oil does not impact the taste of cooked foods, thereby acting as a popular choice of edible oil among consumers.

Support from regulatory bodies towards the consumption of rice-bran oil has further increased the demand for the segment. For instance, the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization have approved the use of rice bran oil owing to its saturated fat composition and perceived health benefits. The regulations have compelled manufacturers to increase the number of rice-bran offerings in retail stores and supermarkets to consumers.

The rice bran meal segment is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period of 2023-2030. Rice bran meal is a byproduct of rice milling, and it is gaining popularity as an ingredient in animal feed due to its high nutritional value. As global demand for meat, dairy, and other animal products continues to rise, there is a corresponding increase in demand for high-quality animal feed. Rice bran meal is an excellent source of energy, protein, and essential fatty acids, making it an attractive ingredient for livestock feed.

Application Insights

The food & beverage segments dominated the application segment with the largest share of 44.4%. Rice bran derivatives are increasingly being used in the food and beverage industry due to their functional properties and nutritional benefits. For instance, Rice bran protein is a high-quality protein source that is derived from the protein-rich fraction of rice bran. It is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids, and it is often used in sports nutrition products, protein bars, and other functional foods.U.S.-based RiceBran Ingredients offers  Prorzya, a range of protein ingredients made from rice bran. The ingredients can be used in beverage applications. Overall, rice bran derivatives offer a range of functional and nutritional benefits that make them an attractive ingredient in the food and beverage industry. They are also a sustainable and environmentally friendly option, as they are derived from a byproduct of rice milling, which would otherwise be discarded or used for low-value applications.
