India Edible Oil Market Outlook to 2025 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "India Edible Oil Market Outlook, 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

'India Edible Oil Market Outlook, 2025', gives an insight into the transformation to occur in the edible oil market. With the consumer buying behavior differing among the states, the northern region is expected to lead the market in terms of consumption of the packaged edible oil.

India is blessed with many positive factors that enable it to stand in a unique position in agro-based products. After achieving independence, India is positive whereby it has become a net employer of agricultural-based products. India is a major oilseed producing country among the different countries producing oilseeds; India has the largest area and production of few oilseed crops, namely groundnut, rapeseed/mustard, sesame, and coconut. Yet, India is the largest importer of edible oil.

With the increasing awareness about the health benefits of the different oils, the perception of the consumers, and the commonly seen trend is the inclusion of a variety of oil in the daily diet. With this, there has been a considerable shift from the traditional oils towards non-traditional oils, such as olive oil and rice bran oil to name a few. Yet, this has not stopped the consumers from eliminating the traditional oil from their diet.

Edible oil packaging has been evolved over the years to encompass a wide range of packaging products such as jerry cans, pouches, jars, tin cans, bottles, among others. The growth of the packaged oil type was not even and only certain variants showed the growth in the market. After more than a year of sustaining lowdown, the firms have started to witness recovery in demand with major players are now confident of sustaining growth if the situation remains favorable.

As domestic production does not meet the increasing domestic demand, Indian relies highly on imports, with few oils contributing significantly to the exports. Crushing of groundnut, rapeseed/mustard, and sunflower is reserved for the small-scale sector. These make up over two-thirds of the aggregate oilseed output of the country. This has translated into a lack of significant investments in large, integrated processing plants and poor economies of scale in the operations of existing players.

To harmonize the interests of farmers, processors, and consumers and at the same time, regulate the large import of edible oils to the extent possible, the import duty structure on edible oils is reviewed from time to time. The country exports edible oils in small quantities to meet expatriate demand.

The rise in exports of edible oils is a positive development for India's oilseed growers, enabling higher realizations for the crops. The rise in bulk exports is seen as a big boost as it brightens the prospects for better remuneration for the oilseed crops. Edible oils are freely exportable in bulk, while mustard oil is allowed in consumer packs not exceeding 5 kg.

The growth in the edible oil industry has resulted from many driving factors; not only from the demand perspective but also from a consumer perspective. From the consumer trends perspective, demand is driven in the area of fat content, health benefits, packaging, and price. This increasing awareness is the reason for the consumer shift from the unorganized market to the purchase of branded edible oil.
