What are the Key Trends in the Market for Olive Oil?

Growing Application of Olive Oil in Cosmetic Industry

Olive oil is a versatile oil used in the foodservice industry for marinades, ranches & dressings, baking, shallow frying, and other purposes. It is also widely used in households for cooking, attributable to its beneficial health properties.

Manufacturers are also offering olive oil for different applications, such as olive oil spray for dressings. However, new growth prospects are emerging, as manufacturers of cosmetics are increasingly adopting olive oil for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and as a replacement for chemical-added commercial cosmetic active ingredients. When used on the skin, olive oil removes dead skin cells and other impurities, and also cleanses, hydrates, and nourishes the hair.

  • In June 2019, ORS Olive Oil, an olive oil-based cosmetic manufacturer, launched olive oil grip gel ‘Fix It’ for wig and weave wearers. This product is sweat- and humidity-resistant, and formulated especially for applying on and styling wigs.

Increasing competition in the olive oil market space poses challenges for manufacturers to sustain their market position. Creative and innovative packaging plays a vital role in such a case, ensuring product differentiation and improving brand awareness and sales, in this intensely competitive landscape. Thus, manufacturers in the olive oil market are using smart and attractive packaging to boost sales. Innovative packaging mostly impacts the sales of high quality and premium olive oil products; as premium packaging represents a product of good quality.

  • In April 2018, Deoleo launched new packaging for its Bertolli brand. This updated packaging is expected to boost brand awareness, globally.

“Olive Oil as a Healthy Substitute for Vegetable Oil & Fats”

Olive oil is considered as one of the healthiest oils when it comes to cooking food as it contains monounsaturated acids. Most vegetable oils contain different types of fats such as trans-fats, saturated fats, and monounsaturated fats. While saturated fats are good for heath, they also increase risk of high levels bad cholesterol and heart disease when consumed in excess. Monounsaturated fats improve cholesterol levels, control insulin levels, and also lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats. 100 grams of olive oil contain 73 grams of monounsaturated fats. Additionally, olive oil is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which has created high interest in olive oil.

  • Napolina, an Italian olive oil company, launched a new range of convenient spray olive oils for cooking. The product range includes extra virgin olive oil, olive oil, and light olive oil spray.

“‘Premiumization’ to Boost Demand for Premium Olive Oil”

Premiumization is a trend that is helping the global olive oil market grow. Extra virgin olive oil, virgin olive oil, light olive oil, and olive pomace oil are the quality standards for olive oil. Since it is extracted from the best olive crops in the Mediterranean region, ultra-premium extra virgin olive oil is the most difficult to find. Furthermore, increased globalization and urbanization have increased disposable income for consumers which has increased consumer interest in premium products. Customers who are accustomed to purchasing high-quality foods are drawn to ultra-premium extra virgin olive oil.

  • GALLO Worldwide, Lda, a premium olive oil manufacturer, has released the first crop of olive oil for the 2018-2019 season. This oil is extracted from the season's first harvested olives and is considered to be of exceptional quality.

“Fluctuating Prices to Hamper Market Growth”

Prices of olive oil are witnessing high fluctuations since the past two to three years, attributable to shortage of olive oil due to disastrous olive harvests in Europe. Spain and Italy account 70% of the global olive oil production, and have faced harsh conditions for olive harvests in the recent past- Spain suffered extreme heat while Italy faced fruit fly infestations, which had adverse effects on olive production in these regions. Olives are grown in limited countries and shortages result in rising prices of olive oil. This is anticipated to negatively impact the growth of the olive oil market.
