The cooking oil market size was valued at $168.4 billion in 2019, and is projected reach $213.1 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 to 2027. The palm oil segment led in terms of the cooking oil market share in 2019, and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period.
Fortification of cooking oil is an emerging process in order to add on some myriad of micronutrients into the cooking oil to enhance nutritional value of the oil. According to FSSAI, fortification of cooking oil can help an individual to meet 25-30% of the required dietary intake for vitamin D & A. Furthermore, this process of fortification started in India, owing to a major deficiency of vitamins A & D in children. Thus, demand for fortified cooking is driving the global market.
Palm oil which holds the major share in the global cooking oil market is highly impacted by import bans by developed economies of North America and Europe. For instance, U.S. has banned the import of palm oil from the Malaysian company Sime Darby Plantation Berhad. It is the third Malaysian company to be slapped with an import ban over allegations of using forced labor. Similarly, Sri Lanka have imposed ban on import of palm oil and new palm plantations. According to some estimates, Sri Lanka imports about 200 KT of palm oil from Indonesia and Malaysia annually. Such bans and restriction negatively impacts the palm oil industry which in turn hampering the expansion of cooking oil market. In addition, Palm oil cultivation has been associated with deforestation, associated loss of bio diversity and land use change. Over the past 4 decades, palm oil have resulted in 16% and 47% deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia respectively. Such environmental concerns further dissuades market expansion and results in upward price pressure on other edible oils.
