Coconut Oil market Overview

The coconut oil market is expected to see enormous growth over the forecast period (2022 – 2030). The market is expected to grow at a swift speed, with a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of up to 6.4% in the coming years. The coconut oil market value is anticipated to reach around USD 7,481.30 million by the end of the year 2030. The virgin coconut oil (VCO) can be used for many applications such as cooking, consumption, cosmetics, etc.

Coconut-based oil is extracted from tender or dried coconut kernels. This oil does not have any taste or odor. The oil can be of three types – unrefined, refined, or virgin. The unrefined coconut-based oil is hardly used for consumption since it is not processed. However, virgin oil (VCO) is growing popular across the globe for consumption uses. It also renders a variety of health benefits to the consumers.

VCO can be put to use in numerous industries such as the commercial industry, beauty & personal care industry, and food & beverages industry. Moreover, the virgin oil of coconut is also used as an alternative for vegetable or other cooking oils. These exceptional qualities of the oil have led to rising demand for VCO. Hence, the market is expected to witness steady growth in the coming years.

Covid-19 Analysis Of Coconut Oil Market

The impact of Covid-19 has debilitated most small and large-scale businesses alike. Due to the lockdown and the need for physical distancing, many businesses have been forced to shut down. The Coconut oil market was one of the industries that saw a decline in its profit and market size. However, coconut oil market is expected to recover its revenue in the coming years.

The pandemic situation seems to fade with time. Most businesses will be able to revive their profit soon. Hence, when that happens, the virgin coconut oil industry too will see tremendous growth in its market size. The awareness among the global population and availability of oil worldwide is leading to its growth despite the pandemic.

Coconut Oil Market Dynamics


A few factors may contribute to the VCO market growth. The growing awareness among people about healthier diet habits and lifestyles has made the switch to the use of virgin coconut oil. The oil renders numerous health benefits and adds exceptional taste and aroma to the food. It can also be used for better skin and improve its radiance. Hence, these factors may fuel the growth of the global VCO market.


The demand for virgin oil in the food & beverage industry is increasing. Moreover, so many companies that produce virgin coconut-based oil have found their way into the market. This has resolved the irregularities in the demand-supply chain. Moreover, companies are also promoting gluten-free beer very well in the market, using trends such as multiple filtering processes and easy-use packaging. Hence, these factors may provide opportunities for virgin coconut-based oil sales.


Some factors may inhibit the growth of the coconut-based virgin oil market. The most important factor among them is the coconut oil world market price. VCO is often highly expensive. So, people cannot afford the oil for their everyday use and may switch back to cheaper oils since this may not fit in their budget. Hence, these factors may hinder market growth.


There may be a few factors that may challenge the virgin coconut-based oil manufacturing companies. The entrance of new unsaturated fat options such as omega may compete with the coconut-based oil sales. This is because fats offer more freedom and are less expensive. They may also be easily available. Hence, these factors may challenge the key players in the market to keep increasing their oil sales.
