Essential oils, also known as volatile oils/aetherolea/ethereal oils, are derived from leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other parts of a plant. Essential oil is obtained from various herbs and plants, such as orange, eucalyptus, corn mint, peppermint, citronella, lemon, lime clover leaf, and spearmint, using distillation methods such as steam and water distillation. An essential oil contains volatile aroma compounds and real essence of the plant from which it is derived. Essential oils are primarily used in cosmetics & toiletries, food items and beverages.
The major factor boosting the market growth is the increasing consumer preference for natural and organic products be it cosmetics, food or similar other product categories. This in turn, has led the manufacturers operating in such industries to develop products that contain natural additives. Thus, the growing usage of essential oils among the aforementioned industries, coupled with factors which include increasing disposable income and improved standards of living in emerging economies, supplement the market growth. The factors restricting the market growth are high price of essential oils, availability of synthetic substitutes, and limited availability of raw materials.
