“Major retailers such as Costco, Walmart, and Whole Foods are making it mandatory for food and cosmetics producers to bring about sweeping changes in the products they supply. Food manufacturers have started replacing artificial colors and flavors with natural ingredients. This has increased the demand for essential oils, among other natural ingredients,” said Amber Chourasia, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for health and wellness research.

“Essential oils have antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. The demand for these oils has rapidly grown in the medicinal segment because they are said to act as natural cures without any serious side effects. For instance, tea tree oil is antiseptic and antifungal in nature. It can prevent or cure acne, cold sores, warts, and burns,” added Amber.

Global essential oil market by retail store

The global essential oil market by retail store was valued at USD 3.17 billion in 2015. Retail stores include grocery stores, hypermarkets, supermarkets, drugstores, stores that specialize in organic and herbal products, and health food stores. The demand for essential oils from grocery stores is the highest.

Essential oils available through channels and health food stores that sell natural or organic products grow the fastest. Early adopters are the prime consumers. Strategies like continual innovations in these channels, experiential customer service provided on information-based models, and the provision of a variety of products are gaining traction in the market. Barlean’s is noted as one of the favorite brands for natural channel shoppers.

Global essential oil market by online channel

The global essential oil market by online channel was valued at USD 850 million in 2015. The global essential oil market by online channel is the fastest-growing distribution channel. Europe and the US were the leading markets in 2015, accounting for more than 55% of global online sales. This channel is rapidly gaining market share because of increasing competition by way of reducing delivery time. Consumer preference is increasingly shifting toward the online channel owing to factors like convenience of purchase and round-the-clock availability. The growing number of websites offering a wide range of essential oils has increased awareness of and demand for these products, especially among working individuals who seek easy accessibility and convenience of purchase.
