Outlook on the Vegetable Oil Industry in the US to 2027 - Players Include Bunge, Cargill and Richardson International Among Others


Dublin, Jan. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "U.S. Vegetable Oil Market by Product Type and Distribution Channel and Business-To-Consumers: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Vegetable oil is a mixture of triglycerides extracted from seeds or parts of fruits or vegetables. This oil is used in food, biodiesel feedstock, pharmaceutical, lubricants, and numerous other industrial applications. Soyabean, cottonseed, palm, corn, and olive are the major sources from where the vegetable oil is extracted. The rise in commercial applications of vegetable oils in the food service and processing industries has created growth avenues for the U.S. vegetable oil market.

During the 20th century, the consumption of vegetable oil increased dramatically with advances and development in oil extraction and processing. Technological innovations such as hydrogenation and interesterification have been used to modify vegetable oils to obtain variable functional properties required for different edible applications. These novel innovations have led to an expansion in the edible oil product portfolio.

Vegetable oils have numerous applications in the food service and food processing industries. The commercial applications in the food industry include the use of vegetable oils for salad & dressing, cooking, industrially produced fried foods, compound coatings, ice cream coatings, fillings & spreads, and substitute for dairy fats. With the popularity of fast food and changes in consumer lifestyle toward more convenient foods, the demand for vegetable oils from the food processing and food service industries has significantly increased. Hence, the ongoing demand has majorly propelled the market growth for vegetable oil in the U.S. Furthermore, an increase in the use of vegetable oils such as olive oil and canola oil, owing to their health benefits, has created growth opportunities for vegetable oil as a substitute for solid fats.

However, changes in either U.S. biodiesel policy or global biodiesel policy can potentially shock oilseed prices depending on which policies change. This makes vegetable oil sources susceptible to high price volatility. Furthermore, the government requires certain certification and labelling legislations with regards to ingredient contents in the oils. It thereby becomes necessary for manufacturers to adhere to these timely regulations. Thus, these factors can potentially hinder the growth of the U.S. vegetable oil market.

On the contrary, manufactures can explore the efficiency and potential of palm oil for food applications, as it exhibits longer shelf life and beneficial health properties such as it reduces oxidative stress and improves skin & hair health. This can be regarded as an opportunity for manufactures to further explore applications for palm oil in the food industry.
