COVID-19 Impact Analysis

With the fatal progression of COVID-19, the world witnessed an unparalleled series of events which were not conducive for the growth of majority of the industries. Moreover, non-essential items like coconut oil were not in the priority list of the consumers, which hampered the overall growth of coconut oil market during the forecast period.

The supply of raw materials is one of the significant aspects in the value chain of the coconut oil market, where the major players and the providers are witnessing the issues because of the poor logistics, and lockdown conditions that restricted the movement in the affected countries around the world, which can result in severe disruptions across the supply chain.

Market Growth Factors:

Rapidly increasing demand for natural cosmetic products

In the era of modernization, people are majorly focusing on taking the best care of their hair and skin. Women across the world are the major contributor to the sales of beauty and personal care products. In the past few years, customers’ preferences have changed from artificial chemical products to natural products. The increasing usage of organic and natural products is estimated to fuel the growth of the coconut oil market during the forecast period. Social media platforms play an important role in the acceptance of organic products.

High demand for coconut oil in the food and beverage industry

Coconut oil is widely used in various ready-to-east snacks, due to the various health benefits, which would accelerate the demand and growth of the coconut oil market in the coming years. In addition, coconut oil is a better substitute used in bakery products as it is cheaper than the baking butter or oil and also makes the bakery product lighter in taste. Further, the utilization of coconut oil in food products is very helpful in gaining quick energy, which is creating more demand for coconut oil among the manufacturers of various food products.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Higher dependency of the manufacturers on import of coconut oil

Manufacturers across various nations of the world are highly dependent on importing coconut oil from other countries with abundant availability, for the manufacturing of various products. This creates a gap between demand and supply of coconut oil, which further increases the prices of various final products that would hamper the demand and growth of the coconut oil market. Several nations like India, have a sufficient amount of coconut oil to export, however, companies in other nations need to buy it, which increases the overall cost of their products.
