Top Companies in the Indian Palm Oil Industry

Top Companies in the Indian Palm Oil Industry

The India palm oil market is expected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% during 2023-2028. Palm oil is an edible oil that is naturally extracted from the mesocarp of palm fruits. It offers numerous nutritional benefits since it is easy to digest, cholesterol-free, and rich in carotenoids and Vitamin A. It also has a longer shelf-life and is more affordable than other vegetable oils available in the market. At present, palm oil is widely consumed in India after soybean oil and mustard oil. However, India’s demand for palm oil is currently met by imports mainly from Malaysia and Indonesia, with limited domestic production. 

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top India palm oil companies are introducing sustainable practices in sourcing and production by utilizing less land, water, and energy resources. They are also engaging in several mergers and acquisitions to strengthen their consumer base. Besides this, the leading market players are expanding their production facilities to meet the increasing demand for palm oil in various non-food applications, such as surfactants, personal care products, cosmetics, agrochemicals, biofuels, which is also providing a positive market outlook.
