Brazil and India on a market-expansion drive

Geographically, the global olive oil market is classified into Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and Rest of the World. In terms of consumption, it is anticipated that the olive oil markets in China and India will expand substantially owing to greater health awareness with regard to the consumption of olive oil. The demand for high-quality olive oil in developed areas of North America and Europe is on the rise. In terms of production, the olive oil markets in India and Brazil are quite small. These countries are making continuous efforts to enhance their overall production of olive oil with the help of advanced production and agriculture technologies. Collaborations between local distributors and overseas olive oil manufacturing companies are expected to drive the olive oil markets in these two regions.

Fluctuating prices hindering the demand

Price volatility is a major challenge facing the global olive oil market. Fluctuating prices of olive oil are brought about by cultivation or production-related issues. Another restraint in the global olive oil industry is adulteration, wherein producers often tend to sell low-quality or adulterated olive oil in place of pure olive oil. The problem of adulteration in this industry can be attributed to the absence of clear grading parameters.

Ybarra, Deoleo, Sovena Group, Colavita, Borges, Salov, and Pompeian are few of the manufacturers operating in the global olive oil market.
