Coconut Oil Market Analysis

The coconut oil market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.34% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

Coconut oil as an ingredient has been widely accepted in different industries such as food and beverage, cosmetics, personal care, and pharmaceuticals. With the ongoing expansion of end-use industries, the demand for coconut oil is also increasing in the worldwide market over the past few years. Further, the rising trend of plant-based cosmetics and personal care products is accelerating the production and processing of industrial-grade coconut oil across key coconut-producing countries. Additionally, several coconut associations have been established in different countries to regulate the industry operations which include Virgin Coconut Oil Producers Association (VCOPA), Indonesian Coconut Processing Industry Association, Coconut Development Board, and International Coconut Community, among others. These associations are primarily engaged in monitoring of trade, export, cultivation, and processing of coconut across the respective country. For instance, in India, Coconut Development Board (CDB) is a statutory body established under the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India for the integrated development of coconut oil production. Moreover, by seeking the involvement of these government agencies, the manufacturers are gaining the trust of the coconut oil and other coconut by-products, which is another reason that is enabling the consumers with increasing demand for coconut oil.

In the short term, the trading of coconut oil has been significantly affected due to the inter-country war between Russia and Ukraine. For instance, according to the market study, in 2020, Russia was the 34th largest exporter of coconut oil across the globe as it exported USD 3.6Million in coconut oil, whereas, due to the war between these respective countries, in 2022, Russia has marked the coconut oil-exporting of USD 634Thousand and an importing of USD 18.4M which is a negative trade balance of USD 1.7Million. Thus, coconut oil trading is being affected across the globe.

Increasing Demand for Coconut Oil in Personal Care Segment

Coconut oil and other coconut-based products have been perceived as a healthy ingredient for beauty enhancement by communities all around the world, especially in tropical and coastal regions, which in turn has influenced the manufacturers to use coconut oil as a staple ingredient in cosmetic and personal care products. Moreover, cosmetics infused with virgin coconut oil are widely accepted as modern consumers are increasingly inclined towards organic and vegan skincare and hair care solutions. As a result, many personal care brands are replacing mineral oil with coconut oil in their cosmetics and personal care products range as coconut oil consists of triglycerides, combined with stable saturated medium-chain fatty acids (lauric acid, C10 capric acid, and C8 caprylic acid) with the same occlusive and hydrophobic characteristics that mineral oil has. Further, the antiseptic properties of coconut oil due to the lauric acid have promoted it as a staple ingredient in lip balms, shampoo, soaps, and moisturizers in recent years. Besides, coconut oil is a natural moisturizer, it locks the moisture of lips and makes them soft and supple, thereby, manufacturers are engaged in manufacturing coconut oil-based lip care products. For instance, in June 2022, REM beauty, the beauty brand owned by American actress Ariana Grande launched a new product called Essential Drip Lip Oil, featuring coconut oil for lip hydration and glossy shine.

Asia-Pacific is the Largest Market

Coconut and coconut-based products are being used as one of the most common ingredients for various food and beverage products across the Asia-Pacific region. For instance, in South India, there are several private label snack brands that specialize in savory snacks fried in coconut oil. Furthermore, increasing consumer awareness about the health benefits associated with plant-based food is driving the application of coconut oil in the packaged food industry. Moreover, coconut oil has been widely preferred to enhance skin and hair health since ancient times in the culture of Asian countries including India, Indonesia, and Thailand, among others. Furthermore, the government across key countries is promoting the expansion of coconut oil processing capacity to cater to rising demand across application industries. For instance, in February 2021, the Japanese government provided a grant of USD 66,648 through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP), for a project for the installation of coconut oil production facilities in the Mullaitivu district. Thus, the rising coconut oil demand from end-use industries to formulate the products as per evolving consumer preferences for vegan and organic cosmetics, personal care products, and packaged food is expected to boost the growth in Asia pacific coconut oil market.
