Drivers and Restraints

Increasing Inclination towards Aromatherapy to Fuel Market Growth

The increasing inclination of people toward their personal wellness is expected to contribute towards essential oils market growth. Consumers prefer high-quality products at reasonable prices to satisfy their needs.  Therefore, manufacturers are increasing their expenditure on research and development to come up with premium quality ethereal oils.  Additionally, the robust hospitality and tourism sector is offering aromatherapy within reach of common consumers, and this trend is further expected to boost the ethereal oils market.

On the other hand, the manufacturing of ethereal oils is a very concentrated product. For example, one pound of lavender oil requires around 250 pounds of lavender flowers. Therefore, excessive demand for raw materials is creating constrained supply, which ultimately makes the prices hike. Therefore, acting as the major market constraint.


By type, the market is divided into citrus, eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary, tea tree, and others. Based on type, the citrus segment held a market share of 41.48% in 2020. This is attributable to its superior functional and organoleptic characteristics.
