It is characterized by a pale yellow color and a mild odor. It is rich in essential nutrients, such as proteins, vitamin E, ricinoleic, monounsaturated fatty acid, and omega 6 and 9. It also offers numerous health benefits due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. As a result, it is widely used for improving the quality of the skin, reducing hair fall, preventing premature greying of the hair, and regulating digestive functions. It is also utilized for processing numerous products across multiple industries.

Global Castor Oil Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing utilization of castor oil for the production of biodiesel. Castor oil is widely synthesized using the process of homogeneous alkaline transesterification to form biodiesel additives. Moreover, the confluence of various factors, such as an increasing focus on sustainable development and significant growth in the automobile industry across the globe, is contributing to the shift from petrochemicals to biodiesels among end users. This is also facilitated by the implementation of stringent government regulations promoting the use of eco-friendly products. Castor oil is further utilized in the food and beverage sector as a flavoring agent, food additive and mold inhibitor. Shifting dietary patterns and the inflating per capita income levels of the masses are supporting the uptake of castor oil. The market is further driven by the growing application of the oil in the production of cosmetics, moisturizers, soaps, medicines, toiletries, polyurethane adhesives, machining oils and refrigeration lubricants. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 1.1% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
