Global Soybean Oil Market Trends:
The rising health consciousness among the masses represents one of the key factors driving the market growth. In line with this, the growing prevalence of several chronic lifestyle diseases on the global level has impelled individuals to maintain a healthy lifestyle by replacing conventional edible oils with soybean oil. Along with this, several manufacturers are continually engaging in the development of fortified product variants with the help of advanced technologies, which is significantly increasing the demand for soybean oil. For instance, they are utilizing biotechnology to modify soybean oil, which can increase the level of omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the red blood cells. Leading market players, such as Cargill, Incorporated, a privately held global corporation based in Minnesota, are also using identity-preserved (IdP), conventionally-bred (non-GM) soybeans to obtain the oil. Apart from this, soybean oil is extensively utilized across numerous non-food applications, including in the production of resins, plastics, animal feed, caulks, mastics, biodiesel and insecticides, which is contributing to its rising demand. Rapid industrialization and easy product availability through online retail portals at an affordable price point, along with the growing application of soybean oil in the petrochemical sector, are some of the other factors that are anticipated to provide a thrust to the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to exhibit stable growth during 2020-2025.
