Palm Kernel Oil Market Analysis

The global palm kernel oil market size reached US$ 15 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 21.7 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 4.10% during 2023-2032.

  • The market for palm kernel oil is being heavily driven by the worldwide trend toward natural and organic products. As consumers are becoming more aware of the possible health dangers associated with synthetic compounds, they are seeking products that are produced from natural sources. The seeds of the oil palm tree, also known as Elaeis guineensis, are the source of palm kernel oil, which is abundant in lauric acid. Lauric acid is well-known for its antibacterial and moisturizing characteristics. It is utilized in the production of soaps, lotions, and creams due to these characteristics, thus making it a popular choice. According to a market research report published by GITNUX, the global natural and organic beauty market reached US$ 36.7 Billion by the year 2021. Other than this, palm kernel oil is a frequent ingredient in the creation of margarine, confectionary, and baked products. It is an excellent option for frying and cooking due to its high oxidative stability, which further increases the demand for it.
  • Economic factors play a crucial role in the palm kernel oil market. When compared to other vegetable oils, such as coconut oil and soybean oil, palm kernel oil is a more economical choice. On account of its high yield per hectare and relatively cheap production costs, it is an appealing choice for producers that are aiming to maximize their profit margins. This makes it a staple ingredient in a variety of goods and enhances its economic viability. In addition to providing a steady source of income for farmers, the consistent output and economic efficiency of palm oil production also makes a substantial contribution to the economy of nations that produce palm oil.
  • Palm kernel oil finds significant use in the pharmaceutical industry due to its unique properties and health benefits. Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid that is renowned for its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal activities. The oil has a high concentration of lauric acid. On account of this, it is an important component in the production of a wide range of therapeutic and pharmaceutical goods. For instance, lauric acid is frequently used in the production of antimicrobial therapies, which contribute to the battle against infections and assist in improving the results for patients. According to the IMARC GROUP, the India pharmaceutical market reached US$ 54.6 Billion in 2023, and is expected to reach US$ 163.1 Billion by 2032, projecting a growth rate of 12.3% during 2024-2032. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry makes use of palm kernel oil in the manufacturing of excipients, which are chemicals that are not active but are utilized as carriers for the active components of a treatment. Due to its durability and compatibility with other components, the oil is an excellent option for the production of medicinal formulations that are reliable and efficient. It is able to give the essential consistency and stability for encapsulating liquid pharmaceuticals and supplements, therefore palm kernel oil is also utilized in the creation of capsule shells, particularly soft gels. This is on account of its capacity to provide the requisite consistency.
