Essential Oils Market Size Worth USD 27.13 Billion by 2032 | Emergen Research

Rising demand for essential oils in the aromatherapy industry and increasing need for natural ingredients are key factors driving essential oils market revenue growth.

Vancouver, Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global essential oils market size was USD 8.80 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a rapid revenue CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period. The surge in demand for essential oils is attributed to their widespread adoption in the aromatherapy industry and the increasing preference for natural ingredients.

Essential oils, derived from natural plant extracts, are gaining popularity due to their safety and absence of side effects. In contrast to synthetic alternatives, these oils do not impede bodily functions or leave harmful residues. The shift towards natural and organic products, especially among health-conscious consumers, is a significant driver of market growth. The spa and relaxation sector’s growing popularity, incorporating aromatherapy treatments, is another key factor propelling market revenue.

Aromatherapy, a practice dating back thousands of years, utilizes the therapeutic properties of essential oils to enhance physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The global trend toward natural ingredients continue to fuel the essential oils market, with applications spanning food and beverage, medicines, personal care, cosmetics, and spa and wellness.

However, the market faces challenges related to side effects due to dosage unawareness. Essential oils, being potent and flammable, can lead to allergic reactions, skin issues, and respiratory problems when misused. Lack of awareness regarding proper dosage, dilution, and application techniques contributes to these challenges. It is crucial for consumers to seek medical advice before using essential oils, particularly if they have health conditions, are pregnant, or nursing.
