$ 1499




The global canola oil market reached a volume of more than 30 Million Tons in 2017. The market is further projected to reach a volume of 42 Million Tons by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 5.8% during 2018-2023. Canola oil refers to a vegetable oil extracted from rapeseed which belongs to the Brassicaceae family. It is a rich source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, monosaturated fats, and vitamin E. On the other hand, it has lower amounts of saturated fats and trans-fats in comparison to other vegetable oils. Owing to this, canola oil helps in reducing inflammation, improving metabolism, assisting in overall development of infants, and protecting against heart attacks and strokes. Earlier, canola oil only had industrial uses, whereas now it finds myriad applications in the commercial as well as residential spaces.
