The major drivers for the vegetable oil global market growth are the ever-growing food sector, growing consumption in the Asian subcontinent, and the biofuel policies coupled with the biodiesel feedstock requirements. The increasing requirements of the biofuel industry results in the siphoning of raw material away from other food and industrial sectors. The resultant price hikes and working capital shortage can be seen as a restraint for the vegetable oil market.

Asia-Pacific holds the major market share in the vegetable oil market. Europe is the second largest consumer. Research and development initiatives by companies and governments has helped manufacturers to get the first-mover advantage, on the basis of high yields during extraction and also the desired low trans-fat composition of the oil.

The vegetable oil market by application is segmented in three major segments: Food, Non-food (industrial) and Biodiesel feed. Although the food applications occupy a major share in the consumption market, the Biofuel segment, boosted by the biodiesel feedstock requirements, is expected to be the fastest-growing segment.

Among the various types of vegetable oil commodities marketed, palm oils, soybean, rapeseed and sunflower oils occupy the excess share of the market. With growing concerns over the availability of soybean and rapeseed due to the biofuel policies in the U.S. and Europe respectively, focus is gradually expected to shift towards palm and palm kernel oils, and other vegetable oils like sunflower.
