Global specialty fats and oils regional market structure

Decreasing demand for coconut oil and rising challenges for growing better quality cocoa crop likely to hamper the growth of the global market for specialty fats and oils
The demand for coconut oil has been decreasing across the globe. Particularly in the U.S. the popularity of coconut oil is declining fast, leading to a reduction of revenue in the North America market for specialty fats and oils. This remarkable reduction in the consumption of coconut oil is associated with the rising health conscious population particularly in North America which is responsible in hampering the growth of the global market for specialty fats and oils during the projected period.
Due to uncertain weather conditions and political instability, the prices of oil crops are unstable thereby impacting the oil output from oil crops growers, which in turn is restraining the oil supply to manufacturers. Other key factors attributed to reduced production volumes of specialty oils across the globe are limited access to finance and lack of knowledge about modern farming techniques and farm management skills. It is estimated that around 30%-40% of crops in major producing regions are lost due to improper pest and crop disease control procedures.
Land available for the production of major oil producing crops are limited as agriculture land availability in the Asia Pacific is witnessing a rapid decline. This factor is adversely affecting the overall growth of the global specialty fats and oils market. The declining agricultural land availability can be attributed to a drop in the agricultural workforce due to the growing urban population.
