Market Dynamic


Global interest in aromatherapy is growing, and this development is due to the expanding hospitality industry as well as consumer preferences for natural aromatherapy products and high-end scents. Globally, stress and anxiety levels have increased due to the sedentary lifestyle. Aromatherapy is in higher demand since it has been scientifically shown to treat diseases like these by improving mood, performance, and cognitive function.

The stakeholders utilize the functional advantages of essential oils and aromatherapy within the supply side. The fragrance industry has simultaneously transitioned from traditional perfume to the self-care and wellness sector. Additionally, the wellness business incorporates cosmetics and skin care products, and aromatherapy is evolving into a vital aspect of wellness, fragrance, and beauty.


Due to their high concentration of active ingredients, essential oils provide several advantages even when used sparingly. However, essential oils are linked to several adverse effects due to their extremely concentrated and volatile nature.

Most essential oils are safe; nonetheless, they must be used cautiously and according to the proper guidelines. Essential oil side effects primarily happen when users don’t follow the correct application protocol.


The popularity of essential oils among consumers is rising quickly, and marketing initiatives are designed to showcase their use and alleged health benefits. In the upcoming years, it’s anticipated that demand for essential oils will rise in developing nations like China and India.

Population expansion contributes to the rising demand for food, beverages, and cosmetics. In economically underdeveloped nations, the need for essential oils is anticipated to increase gradually, while it is expected to grow exponentially in new & rising markets in Asia Pacific nations. The high demand would benefit suppliers, as would the low cost of extraction.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are Food & Beverages estimated to account for the largest market share?

Over the forecast period, the food and beverage segment is anticipated to experience the highest CAGR. This is due to the food and beverage industry’s rising emphasis on improving product shelf life without sacrificing quality. Food and beverage producers now offer healthful essential oils due to changing consumer preferences toward natural products over synthetic ones and rising demand for high-quality food items. Due to their suitability for internal use, basil, fennel, lemon, cassia, and peppermint emerged as the most popular essential oils for food and beverage applications.

Why is Direct Distribution expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

The direct distribution segment accounted for a 46.2% revenue share. More individuals are becoming aware of the benefits of essential oils, which has increased retail sales, particularly through convenience stores. To expand their businesses and boost sales, prominent competitors like doTerra and Young Living Essential Oils have embraced multi-level marketing tactics.

  • With a 43.0% revenue share, Europe controlled the majority of the market for essential oils. In the upcoming years, the area is anticipated to dominate the industry. This is linked to the existence of developed end-use businesses and growing consumer knowledge of the advantages of essential oils.
  • Over the years, Asia Pacific is anticipated to experience the market for essential oils with the highest CAGR of 8.4%. This is due to favorable weather for farming, inexpensive labor, and a plentiful supply of raw resources.

Competition Analysis

To reduce resource consumption and increase productivity, businesses are concentrating on improving their production methods. Market players’ main strategies are to increase profitability through value chain optimization and business process restructuring. To obtain cutting-edge raw materials for novel solutions, businesses launch pilot projects to cultivate crops that have never been produced in the field.

Players have noticed an increase in manufacturing capacity to meet the rising demand from numerous end-use sectors. Players are also concentrating on making sizeable expenditures in R&D operations to create an ecologically friendly production process and lessen the market on the natural resources from which key ingredients are obtained.
