Vegetable oil is a natural oil produced from plant materials such as soy bean, palm fruit, rapeseed, cotton seed, sunflower seed, coconut, maize, etc. At fairly low temperature, it usually remains liquid and mostly comes in a light yellow colour with mild, bearable odour. It has a plethora of benefits as it reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, improves metabolism and digestion, lowers chances of breast cancer, and provides balanced and healthy ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Vegetable oil is used as a cooking medium for frying, as a salad dressing or as shortening agent in baking. It also has non-food uses in products like cosmetics, greases, lubricants, candles, and soaps and detergents. Another recent non-food use of vegetable oil is in the biofuel industry as a feedstock in the production of biodiesel and as an alternative to mineral oil for use in power stations. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global vegetable oil market reached a volume of 183 Million Tons in 2016 and is further expected to reach 242 Million Tons by 2022.
The production of vegetable oil witnessed a steady growth during 2009-2016. Introduction of the application of vegetable oil as biodiesel feedstock coupled with biofuel policies have led to an increase in its demand in the biofuel industry. Initiation of research and development by companies and governments has helped the manufacturers of vegetable oil in reducing the trans-fat content of the oil and improving yield. Moreover, rising population, growing demand in food sector, increasing disposable incomes, growing health consciousness among consumers along with a strong demand from emerging markets are some of the other factors that have facilitated the market growth.
