The fats & oils market is also driven by non-food utilization, particularly for the production of oleochemicals and biofuels.

Fats & Oils Market

what is fats & oils?

Fats and oils are types of lipids, which are molecules that are an essential part of our diet and body functions. They are made up of fatty acids and glycerol. Fats are usually solid at room temperature, while oils are liquid. They are a concentrated source of energy in our diet, providing more than twice the energy of carbohydrates and proteins. Additionally, fats and oils play crucial roles in our body, such as insulating and protecting organs, providing energy, and aiding in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K. Sources of fats and oils include butter, olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish.

Fats and Oils Market Key insights & trends:

Biodiesel is an alternative to diesel fuel from fossil fuel energy sources. It has an advantage over diesel fuel as it does not run out and continues to grow in the fields. Rapeseeds, soybeans, the fruit of oil palms, and even old edible fats are ideal for biodiesel production. It is a non-toxic, biodegradable, and renewable fuel produced from a range of renewable raw materials, such as fresh or waste vegetable oils, animal fats, and oilseed plants. Environmental compatibility of land use, a verifiable saving of greenhouse emissions, and coexistence with food production are the main standards of sustainability maintained in biodiesel production. Hence, biodiesel and edible vegetable oils are produced with less harmful impact on the environment. Also, the rising costs of diesel fuel and continuous climatic changes due to the emission of greenhouse gases drive the market for the production and usage of biodiesel.

Owing to the increased health consciousness among consumers, trans-fats are gradually replaced by a much healthier substitute, namely unsaturated liquid vegetable oils, such as olive, canola, corn, or soy oils. The global market has been witnessing the trend of encapsulation. Several key manufacturers are now strategizing on encapsulating milk fat and vegetable oils in a matrix comprising whey proteins and mixtures of caseins and whey proteins. These fat-rich powders find applications in various food formulations as well as in nutritional supplements and pharmaceutical products. In the global fats and oils market, premium oil types, such as olive and sunflower, witness higher prices owing to their raw materials costing, superior-label claims, and value-added nutritional profiles. Western markets of Europe and North America remain the target for such premium categories of oils and fats, thereby witnessing comparatively higher prices than the global average. Thus, the factor is driving the market value for fats and oils in the global markets.
