The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Edible Oil Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the India edible oil market size reached 23.9 Million Tons in 2021. Edible oil is the fatty liquid extracted from various vegetable- and animal-based sources at lower temperatures.It is a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, essential fat-soluble vitamins, and minerals, such as zinc, phytosterols, and selenium. It is widely used in households, hotels, cafes, food processing units, and restaurants for frying, baking, and other types of cooking. It is also used in food preparations that do not involve heat, such as salad dressings and dips. As edible oils increase the nutritional value of the food items and provide distinct texture and flavor, they are extensively utilized to prepare various Indian dishes. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

India Edible Oil Market Trends:

With the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and the rising awareness regarding the health benefits of organic and low-cholesterol edible oil, various regional manufacturers are launching healthy product variants enriched with omega-3, vitamins, and natural antioxidants. This represents one of the key factors driving the market growth in India. Besides this, the escalating demand for edible oil in the food processing sector as food preservatives and flavoring agents is also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the elevating living standards of consumers and increasing penetration of international culinary trends have led to the escalated demand for premium product variants, such as olive oil, sesame oil, and flaxseed oil. This, coupled with the expanding agriculture industry and the implementation of several initiatives for enhancing the production of oilseeds in the country, are positively influencing the market growth.
