India Used Cooking Oil Market to Reach 3.9 Million Tons by 2027, Impelled by Rising Environmental Consciousness

Published on Jun 10, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titledIndia Used Cooking Oil Market: Industry, Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the India used cooking oil market reached a volume of 3.1 Million Tons in 2021. Used cooking oil (UCO) refers to residual oils and fats previously used for cooking or frying. It is produced as a result of the repeated use of vegetable oils for cooking applications in commercial sectors, food processing industry, HoReCa and household sectors. UCO is commonly incorporated in animal feed, oleochemicals and biofuels. Generally considered a waste product, UCO is refined to repurpose it as a useful product for fuel and other industries. Some other applications of UCO include unclogging kitchen pipes, creating renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and protecting local sewer lines at cost-effective rates.

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.

India Used Cooking Oil Market Trends:

The widespread adoption of UCO as a feedstock to produce biodiesel is one of the key factors driving the market growth in India. Additionally, biodiesels that are produced using waste cooking oil have a lower carbon footprint and release lesser amount of carbon monoxide, thus supporting the market growth. In line with this, the increasing consumer awareness about ecological sustainability and rising concerns regarding high carbon emission levels from conventional fuels are favoring the demand for clean and renewable fuel alternatives, which is further bolstering the UCO market growth. Apart from this, the increasing product utilization as an eco-friendly and sustainable substitute of petroleum-based raw materials in the production of oleochemicals is favoring the market growth. Additionally, the significant growth in the food processing industry and the rapid establishment of hotel and restaurant chains that are producing an excessive amount of used cooking oil are positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities, widespread product adoption for manufacturing animal feed, and the implementation of various government initiatives promoting the usage of bioenergy to reduce carbon footprints, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a volume of 3.9 Million Tons by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 3.40% during 2022-2027.
