Vetiver Oil Market – Insights
Vetiver oil is an essential oil that is extracted through steam distillation of vetiver roots. The vetiver plant is found in India, Haiti, and Indonesia. It has a soothing and stabilizing scent, which increases its utilization in fragrances, and is further used as a major constituent in approximately one-fifth of all fragrances. The oil’s soothing and calming aroma has led to its increased adoption as a complementary treatment for anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders, including ADHD and PTSD. Among applications, the pharmaceutical segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the market, owing to its sedative, nervine, and antiseptic properties. Moreover, vetiver oil can be used as a pest repellant in conjunction with other essential oils.
Low quality and quantity of raw materials used for the production of vetiver oil is the major factor restraining growth of the vetiver oil market. Harvesting the crop at inappropriate times reduces the quality and value of the vetiver roots. Rampant premature harvesting of roots practiced by farmers in Haiti is mainly due to poor financial conditions of farmers in the region.
North America and Europe accounted for a major share in the global vetiver oil market, in terms of revenue, in 2016. North America held a share of 30.9%, in terms of revenue, followed by Europe (37.2 %). The dominance can be attributed to a highly developed and mature market for fragrances in these regions. Asia Pacific was valued at US$ 9.0 million in 2016 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.45%, to reach US$ 34.17 million by 2025. Growing demand for vetiver oil in Asia Pacific due to rising consumer awareness coupled with growing demand for fragrances has augmented the market growth. Moreover, increased utilization of vetiver oil as flavoring in pan masala and chewing tobacco has fueled the market growth. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, South Asia accounted for around 80% of the world’s chewable tobacco users.
Latin America is also projected to be an attractive target region for sales of vetiver oil. This is attributed to a highly developed market for fragrances. According to ABIHPEC (Associação Brasileira da Indústria de Higiene Pessoal, Perfumaria e Cosméticos), Brazil was the world’s largest market for sales of fragrances in 2016. However, the slowdown of Brazil’s economy affected sales of fragrances. The Brazilian economy shrank by 3.6% and 3.8% in 2016 and 2015 respectively. According to the International Monetary Fund, the Brazil economy is expected to bounce back and grow by 1% in 2017.
Europe was valued at US$ 20.89 million in 2016. Increasing demand from the pharmaceuticals industry for treatment of mental health disorders has fueled the market growth. According to WHO, in 2014, around 83 million people were affected by mental health disorders in Europe. Moreover, high sales of fragrances in Western European countries has fueled the vetiver oil market growth.
The global vetiver oil market was valued at US$ 56.34 million in 2016 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.71%, in terms of revenue, during 2017 – 2025.
