Market Overview

The rice bran oil market is projected to witness a CAGR of 9.98% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic created turbulence in the market but did not affect the edible oil market much. This, in turn, did not affect the rice bran oil market as well. The demand for food and beverage, including edible oils, increased, which led to the growth of the market. Moreover, various studies have depicted that the demand for organic edible oils like rice bran oils saw a rise during the pandemic due to the rising awareness regarding the benefits of rice bran oil.

The rice bran oil market is being driven by rising health consciousness among consumers and high demand for nutritional and fat-free food and beverages owing to its mild flavor, neutral taste, and rich nutrient content. Other factors responsible for the growth of the market include numerous application areas, aggressive promotional campaigns by manufacturers, and high penetration in both developed and emerging markets.

Regulatory bodies favoring the consumption of rice bran oil have further boosted the market growth. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association have approved the use of rice bran oil, stating that its composition of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated fats is much safer as compared to the composition of most other vegetable oils.
