Key Market Trends

Rising Popularity of Peanut-derived Ingredients in Personal Care and Skin Care Products

Peanut-derived ingredients are primarily used in the formulation of moisturizers, skin care products, and skin cleansers. The peanut oil is pale yellow when extracted. It is incorporated with hydrogen atoms to make Hydrogenated Peanut Oil. Peanut Glycerides and Peanut Acid are also derived from peanut oil. While peanut oil and peanut glycerides serve as skin conditioning agents, peanut acid is used as a surfactant and cleansing agent in various products. Hydrogenated peanut oil also acts as a viscosity increasing agent, which makes it an important part of the skincare industry. Thus, increasing demand for these derivatives in various industries is inflating the demand for peanut oil, promoting more production and driving the market of peanut oil, correspondingly.

The Asia-Pacific Region Dominates the Peanut Oil Market

Peanut oil is popular around the world but is most commonly used in Chinese, South Asian, and Southeast Asian cooking. Peanut is one of the major cash-crops of India and due to the growing demands for high oleic peanuts, groundnut scientists from the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and partners across India have come up with oleic-rich peanuts in Spanish and Virginia bunch types which are adapted to Indian farm conditions. As per the USDA report for 2019, China had the world's highest consumption of peanut oil for domestic food purposes, followed by India.

Competitive Landscape

The peanut oil market is a fragmented one due to the presence of not-so-big regional companies, who have come up to compete with the leading global players. The main reason for the growth of the smaller companies is the difference in the prices at the cost of the lower-grade product. However, the unaware people in the broader markets tend to buy cheaper products over the high-quality ones. The giants of the industry are therefore experimenting upon the processing innovations to maintain their market reputation. Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Incorporated, and Olam International are among the leading manufacturers of peanut oil.
