December 2019 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Castor Oil & Derivatives Market Growth & Trends

The global castor oil and derivatives market size is expected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 6.7%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is anticipated to grow at a fast pace owing to increasing demand from end-use industries, especially biodiesel, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical. The growth in the market can be attributed to increasing demand for biodegradable and sustainable products on account of shifting industry trends toward reducing the dependency on petrochemicals.

Mounting preference of end-use manufacturers toward bio-based chemicals can be attributed to the fluctuating prices of petrochemical-based products, which are a result of the demand-supply gap. This shift toward bio-based products has caused distress in the global chemical industry and has fueled the demand for vegetable oils, especially castor oil. Favorable regulatory support from developed economies of North America and Europe, owing to the resolutions for reducing environmental hazards related to petrochemicals and conventional sources, is anticipated to fuel the market growth in the near future. 

The product is primarily found in semi-tropical and tropical regions across the globe. India is the largest manufacturer of castor oil and the production is anticipated to rise on account of high availability of seeds in the country. According to the Amisy Group, prominent producers in 2018 were Brazil, China, and India, which account for over 80% of the global castor oil production volume. Plant cultivation is dependent on the climate and its harvesting requires approximately six months, resulting in an unpredictable supply of raw material. Fluctuating prices of the raw material owing to inconsistency in supply chain and high dependency on climatic conditions are projected to restrain the market growth.
