The Solvent Extractors Association (SEA) of India is on the ICRBO board and is promoting rice bran oil in different parts of the country as a rich source of vitamin E and high oryzonal content which lowers the cholesterol levels.

In 2015, Government of India lifted ban on RBO exports which is expected to boost the sales. India is expected to export close to 10 kilo tons of RBO in the fiscal year compared to an export based limit of 2 kilo tons in the previous years. This initiative is likely to fetch demand from countries such as Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.  Indian traders are expected to receive large orders from Japan based firms following removal of export limit. India has the potential to export up to 50 kilo tons annually of rice bran oil.


Growth in personal care & cosmetic industry is also likely to favor RBO market growth over the forecast period. The Oryzol component protects against the UV light and can be used as sunscreen agent.
