    Market Drivers 

    Increasing consumer awareness about the medical and relaxing properties of E.Oils are the key driving factors of the market. This trend is supported by various government policies intended at improving the environment 

    Increasing Demand

    • Sri Lanka, which was earlier the top producer, was overtaken by countries such as Indonesia, China, and Vietnam. Nevertheless, the island country still has the monopoly over the “true cinnamon” grade, supplying 85–90% of the global share (27%).
    • Sri Lanka, to regain its position, has proposed LKR 250 Mn in its budget in 2016 for the Spice Council to undertake a branding exercise, lease out underutilized fertile government land and strengthen cinnamon research.

    • Sri Lanka, which was earlier the top producer, was overtaken by countries like Indonesia, China, and Vietnam. Sri Lanka still has monopoly over the “true cinnamon” grade, supplying 85–90 percent of the global share (27 percent)
    • The country, to regain its position, has proposed LKR 250 million in its budget in 2016 for the Spice Council to undertake a branding exercise, lease out underutilized fertile government land and to strengthen Cinnamon Research

    Increasing Usage of Natural Ingredients

    The consumption of “all-natural ingredients” has been surging majorly owing to the rising awareness regarding the benefits of natural ingredients in tandem with increasing health consciousness among consumers.

    Numerous manufacturers across all sectors are designing innovative ways of including healthy and natural ingredients in their formulations to deliver maximum benefits to the consumers. 

    “Natural claims” have a huge impact on the purchase of cosmetic and food & beverage products. Essential oils fill that “all-natural” gap across various industries including home care, feed, and cosmetics, to name a few.  Such trends will contribute to the essential oil market size.

    Rising Shift towards Aromatherapy

    • Essential oils benefit the psychological as well as physiological activity in sync, as such, they are commonplace in aromatherapy. 
    • The rising demand for aromatherapy is attributed to various factors, the most vital being the gradual rise of disposable income over the past decade. 
    • Consequently, consumers’ preferences have also moved towards more sophisticated products or services. 

    Market Constraints 

    • Weather fluctuation and seasonality, along with quality issues arising due to poor harvesting and processing techniques adopted in the major producing belts are major constraints of the industry
    • Weather Impact/Seasonality: El Nino, being really strong in 2016/2017, at a degree of +1.5, is not a good sign for Indonesian products, especially cloves and cinnamon. This could impact production, and thereby support the increase in prices in 2017/2018. Since essential oils are plant-derived, supply is dependent on crop seasonality
    • Quality Constraints: Most essential oils produced in developing countries that invest little in developing the overall production process leads to many supply chain risks and loss of crop yields. E.g. Clove oil produced from Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and Tanzania suffers largely from the improperly planned production process
    • Surging Production Costs:  Production costs of lemon oil surged by 118% over the past five years owing to the constant increase in fresh lemon price. Production of citronella grass takes place on a small scale, where handling cost and quality are the main constraints for its use in the pharma and fragrance industry
    • Lower Supply and Labor Cost:  Collection and processing of raw materials are labor-intensive processes as the majority of the harvesting regions are developing countries. Reduced supply of raw materials, especially spices like clove, cinnamon, etc. puts pressure on the essential oil market

    End-use Industry Analysis

    • Essential oils are mostly used in the flavor and fragrances industry, and the industry is expected to grow at the rate of 6–7% against the demand growth of 3–4%. The presence of large volume buyers in this segment may push suppliers to increase their product portfolio.
    • The global flavor and fragrance market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6–7 % from 2017 to 2022, and it is anticipated to create a similar demand trend in essential oil consumption.
    • Currently, less than 10% of the essential oil is used in the personal care segment. FBT and pharmaceutical industries drive the major essential oil market share.
    • Essential oils are now extensively studied as an alternative for antibiotics in poultry due to apprehensions around the overuse of antibiotics and added health benefits. A prominent example is Cargill's ongoing research of using essential oils derived from thyme, cinnamon and oregano as non-medicated feed additives.
