Black seed oil is the oil extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, a plant which is mainly cultivated in Southwest Asia and some parts of the Middle East. It possesses medicinal properties and can be used as an effective remedy for curing several ailments including diabetes, cholesterol, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, respiratory infections, etc.

Remarkable properties of black seed oil such as rich source of vitamin B, copper, calcium, zinc, phosphorous and folate are likely to make it an ideal choice for consumption as a daily dietary supplement, thus driving the black seed oil market demand. Increasing instances of chronic diseases and lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, Alzheimer’s disease, heart problems, obesity, etc. are expected to further drift consumer focus towards organic remedies for curing these ailments, thus propelling the market growth over the review period. Moreover, rising prevalence of skin problems such as acne, inflammation and psoriasis among people coupled with growing consumer awareness regarding the long-term undesirable effects of chemical-loaded products on human skin and scalp should further promote the use of natural ingredients such as black seed oil in cosmetic products and augment the industry landscape during the forecast period.  

However, the direct contact of black seed oil with human skin through its topical application have proven to have adverse effects such as skin allergies, dermatitis and hypotension among few individuals, which may reduce the rate of acceptance of the product among consumers. Moreover, presence of melanthin which is toxic in nature if consumed in large quantities is likely to further restrict the product usage over the forecast timeframe. Lack of consumer awareness regarding the health benefits of the product, especially among developing nations of the world may further hamper growth of the black seed oil market.
