Australia Oilseed Market Outlook

The Australia oilseed market size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2024-2032. The market is being aided by the rising usage of oilseeds in food applications and the growing export of canola seeds in countries like the United States and Japan.


Key Trends in the Market

Oilseed crops are mainly grown for edible oil and are the pillar of several agricultural economies. They play a pivotal role in the agricultural sector and trade across the globe. Canola and cottonseed are Australia’s major oilseed crops, which account for over 90% of local production.


  • Australian oilseeds enjoy high demand in both domestic and international markets due to efficient supply, production, processing, and marketing chains. The country exports over one million tonnes of canola seed (15-20% of the world’s canola trade) to Japan, Europe, China, Pakistan and other nations annually. It also is a well-known supplier of high-quality edible oilseeds, including soybeans and confectionary sunflowers.

The Australia oilseed market growth is being supported by the increasing usage of oils and oilseeds such as canola, mono sun, cottonseeds, and mid/high oleic canola in the food and beverage sector owing to their excellent nutritional values.

  • Oilseeds have an excellent nutritional profile and contain nutrients like protein, magnesium, iron, zinc, and fibre, among others, hence they are used to produce vegetable oils. Moreover, oilseed proteins are associated with major health benefits, including weight loss and reduced risks of diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular events.

Oilseeds are also excellent natural sources of plant proteins and act as a substitute for animal proteins, making them popular among vegans and vegetarians.

  • The Australia oilseed market expansion is being fuelled by the rising use of oilseeds and their by-products in livestock feeds, pharmaceuticals, and biofuels, among others. Commonly used oilseeds to produce biofuels include soybean seeds, rapeseed, and canola seeds. The introduction of favourable government policies aimed at promoting the use of biodiesel is anticipated to positively influence the market in the coming years.
