/EIN News/ -- Pune, India, April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Essential Oil Market size was valued at USD 3,497.5 million in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period. The consumption pattern in essential oils varies from region to region. For instance, the demand in North America is mainly driven by the rising use of essential oils in the food & beverages and pharmaceutical industries. The scenario is different in Europe, as the region is witnessing rising demand for these oils in the cosmetic industry.

The term essential oil has been derived from “Quinta essential”, a term coined by Paracelsus von Hohenheim of Switzerland for denoting the effective component of a drug. Essential oils are natural extracts from stems, roots, flowers, seeds, and other parts of a plant. In old days, these were mainly used for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Today, essential oils are also considered as potential ingredients in food & beverages and cosmetic industries. Essential oils are soluble in fixed oils, alcohol, and ether, but are insoluble in water.

Global Essential Oils Market, By Method of Extraction

Based on the method of extraction, the market has been segmented into distillation, carbon dioxide extraction, cold press extraction, solvent extraction, and other extraction methods. The distillation segment is currently dominating the global essential oils market, as distillation is the single most effective method that can remove 99.9% contaminants.

This is the only process that boils the water and thereby removes virus, bacteria, and other impurities. The major benefit of this technology is that the molecules of volatile oils flee from the plant material and evaporate into the steam, thus purifying the oil. This is the best method of extraction that provides continuous temperature control of the steam implement to the plant materials, thereby reducing dilapidation of the valuable essential oil.

Based on applications, the market has been divided into medical, food & beverages, spa & relaxation, cleaning & home, and agribusiness. Among these segments, the medical application segment of the essential oil market captured the largest market share in 2020, followed by the food & beverages application. The medical application segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period till 2028.

Essential oils are well known for their health benefits, as they contain natural ingredients that impart the essence of the source from which they have been extracted. Active compounds of essential oils possess numerous medicinal properties that are useful in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries, which is further anticipated to boost the growth of the medical application segment.

Global Essential Oils Market, By Sales Channel

Based on sales channels, the market has been divided into direct sales and third-party sales. The direct sales segment is dominating the market, which accounted for about two third of the global essential oil market in 2020. In the direct sales process, the product is directly supplied from manufacturers to the end users.

Direct sourcing is particularly attractive for strategic essential oils, which account for an important share in essential oil sales, as these oils are not always readily available through traders.
