December 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Essential Oil Market Growth & Trends 

The global essential oils market size is estimated to reach USD 35.5 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2021 to 2028. The growth can be attributed to the rising awareness regarding the health benefits of naturally sourced oils and the growing inclination of people towards aromatherapy. Additionally, increasing demand from major end-use industries such as food and beverage and personal care, and cosmetics is likely to have a positive impact on the market.

Essential oils are generally distilled or extracted directly from plant matter to derive the most concentrated essence or oil. Distillation may be a steam contact or direct water contact process where plant leaves, stems, roots, and flowers are leached for their essences and flavors. Raw material for essential oils varies from product to product, based on the type of oil required.

Key companies are entering into long-term contracts with domestic and international suppliers and distributors to diversify their sources, control prices, and maintain the quality of raw materials. Mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures are the major expansion strategies adopted by players to strengthen their position in the market as well as expand their regional presence.

Europe was the dominating region in 2020 and is predicted to witness a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period. This is attributed to the strong presence of the food and beverage industry coupled with high disposable income and high standards of living of the consumers.
