As consumers become more conscious of the impact of their dietary choices on their health, there's been a noticeable trend towards opting for cooking oils that offer nutritional benefits beyond merely adding flavor to their dishes. Moreover, this oil is rich in vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Hence, these aspects will boost the demand for this oil in the upcoming years. Additionally, Heightened awareness about the potential health and environmental impacts of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and pesticide residues has led to a shift in consumer purchasing behaviors towards safer and more sustainable products. In addition, consumers' perception of non-GMO and organic corn oil as safer and environmentally sustainable options has resonated, driving increased adoption of these products. Thus, these aspects will assist in the growth of the market.

However, Corn cultivation is highly dependent on favorable weather conditions throughout the growing season. Factors like rainfall patterns, temperature variations, and extreme weather events like droughts or floods can significantly impact corn yields. Moreover, uncontrolled infestations of the numerous pests and diseases that can harm corn crops and reduce yields may result in crop damage. Therefore, owing to these factors, there will be reduced demand for this oil in the coming years.
