Additionally, a supply side surge has been a great booster for the market, specifically the food industry's shift towards healthier and plant-based products. Vegetable fats are commonly used in the formulation of a wide range of food products, including baked goods, snacks, and spreads, to meet the growing demand for plant-based and clean-label options. The versatility of vegetable fats in various culinary applications makes them a core component for food manufacturers looking to cater to evolving consumer preferences for healthier, sustainable, and plant-based options. The increasing focus on reducing reliance on animal-derived fats will further create opportunities for vegetable fats market expansion.


There is a perception of higher costs associated with some vegetable fats compared to cheaper alternatives like palm oil, that is restraining the vegetable fats industry expansion. While vegetable fats such as avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil are considered healthier options, they often come at a premium price point, making them less accessible for price-sensitive consumers and food manufacturers. This pricing disparity results in limitations in the broader adoption of healthier vegetable fats, especially in products where cost considerations play a significant role in the formulation process. Furthermore, the complex supply chain and potential seasonal variations in vegetable fat production further leads to price instability, hindering the market growth.
