Global Fats and Oils Market to Grow at 4.1% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Growing Consumption of Processed Foods

Published on May 17, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fats and Oils Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global fats and oils market reached a value of US$ 214.0 Billion in 2021. Fats and oils, also known as triacylglycerides, are esters of glycerol comprising three fatty acids. They are colorless, odorless, tasteless, and can be naturally found in both plants and animals. They insulate organs of the body, provide energy and essential calories, and aid in absorbing fat-soluble vitamins, such as A, D, E, and K. As a result, fats and oils find extensive application in the preparation of bakery products like biscuits and pastries.

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.

The rising focus on reducing bloat and energy density in the feed represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, fats and oils are extensively used in the production of paints, paper, and lubricants around the world. Additionally, the increasing consumption of processed food products, along with escalating demand for high-quality edible oil, is positively influencing the market.
