Castor Oil Market to Reach USD 2.3 Billion by 2032 – Growing Popularity of Green Cosmetics to Propel Growth

Newark, Jan. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 1.4 billion castor oil market will reach USD 2.3 billion by 2032. A particular kind of plant oil that is extracted from castor beans is known as castor oil. Castor oil is recognised for its distinct flavour and aroma and colourless to very pale yellow in hue. The substance is widely used in many industries, including lubricants, chemicals, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and polymers and resins. The oil is also used to promote the growth of skin and hair. One of the main reasons propelling the castor oil market’s expansion is the product’s increasing use as a feedstock for biodiesel worldwide. The rise in consumer preference for biodiesel, plastics, and resins, along with the increased demand for castor oil due to its high density and potent thermal conductivity for the manufacturing of soaps, cosmetics, paints, dyes, and inks, are driving the expansion of the castor oil market. The oil’s use also influences the castor oil market in producing bio-based plastics, lubricants, coatings, skincare, hair care, and pharmaceutical products. Additionally, the market is driven by the growing demand for oil in traditional medicines due to its potential to treat inflammatory issues, stools, headaches, and skin disorders.

Market Dynamics:

Drivers: Diverse application of castor oil

Castor oil and its derivatives have several benefits compared to other vegetable oils due to their distinct fatty acid composition. Most uses for cotton, coconut, soy, maize, and rapeseed oils are for food products. Derivatives of castor oil have diverse physicochemical characteristics and are naturally occurring and renewable. As a result, these goods are favoured as essential raw materials for various uses, such as bioenergy, lubricants, oleochemicals, medicines, and cosmetics. Because green chemicals are becoming increasingly important globally, the market is anticipated to rise steadily during the forecast period.

Restraint: Fluctuating price of raw materials

Many factors, including temperature, light, rainfall, soil properties, latitude, and altitude, influence the yield of castor oil. The yield determines the price of castor oil. The fluctuating pricing impacts the demand for and downstream production of castor oil derivatives, which lowers profit margins.

Opportunity: Increasing use in the cosmetics industry

The rise in demand for skincare products is supporting the growth of the castor oil market. One of the main components of skin care products is castor oil, which helps to moisturise, treat acne, soothe sunburns, lessen puffiness, and prevent wrinkles. Due to the growing trend of purchasing natural cosmetics to prevent severe side effects and skin allergies, castor oil is in great demand for skincare applications.
