In order to meet the changing demands of health-conscious consumers, the industry has been forced to innovate and develop healthier oil and fat products, including those with reduced trans fats and better omega-3 fatty acid profiles. This shift in consumer preferences is being driven by concerns about heart health and general well-being.

Edible oils & fats come from a variety of sources, including plants, animals, fruits, seeds, and nuts. They are used extensively in both modern and traditional cuisines across the world. They are essential elements of the global food business since they are also used in baking, food processing, frying, and as ingredients in a range of food items.

The edible oils & fats market's revenue growth is hampered by the fluctuation in raw material prices. Changes in the cost of raw commodities like palm fruits, soybeans, and coconuts can affect businesses' production costs and profit margins. Inability to predict costs often makes it difficult to set competitive prices for finished goods, which might slow market expansion as companies try to manage price changes while preserving product quality and consumer affordability.

While demand for edible oils increased owing to increased home cooking during lockdowns, supply chain interruptions, labor constraints, and reduced restaurant operations all had an impact on production and delivery. Price changes, logistical challenges and alterations in customer preferences all have an impact on market dynamics.
