Opportunity: Rise in demand for natural ingredients

The demand for "all-natural ingredients" has lately been on the rise mainly due to the growing awareness about the benefits of natural ingredients and the increasing disposable income, which results in people spending more money on expensive natural products. The increasing health consciousness among people fuels this demand further by leading to more liberal spending on good-quality natural products, which would provide long-lasting results.

Several manufacturers across all industries are developing new ways of incorporating natural and healthy ingredients in their formulations for providing maximum benefits to the consumers. 'Natural claims' largely influence the purchase of food & beverage and cosmetic applications. Essential oils provide that 'all natural' flavor and fragrance across several industries such as food & beverage, cosmetics, feed, and home care, among others, which creates several opportunities for essential oils market.

Challenges : Prevalence of synthetic/adulterated products

There is an important concern of adulteration in essential oils, which has become a major challenge for essential oils market. Not all essential oils are created equal and may contain synthetic adulterants. These adulterated essential oils do not possess the properties of essential oils and merely act as fragrance products.

Adulterated essential oils are extremely hazardous. They may have numerous side effects and may cause permanent damage to the organs. However, the high prices of essential oils are the main reason for the prevalence of such adulterated and synthetic products. One liter of pure rose essential oil costs around USD 78 thousand; however, the inferior quality of the same quantity would cost around 200–300 dollars. Adulteration thus helps in cutting down the cost and making the product available for the masses, owing to which there is a prevalence of synthetic/adulterated products.
