India is blessed with many positive factors that enable it to stand in a unique position in Agro-based products. After achieving independence, India is positive whereby it has become a net employer of agricultural-based products. India is a major oilseed-producing country among the different countries producing oilseeds; India has the largest area and production of a few oilseed crops, namely groundnut, rapeseed/mustard, sesame, and coconut. Yet, India is the largest importer of edible oil. India’s edible oil market is estimated at INR 5,19,905 Crore by the year FY 2027-28, with the unorganized oil market showing a decline in the market share with a CAGR of around 5%.
Together, groundnut, soybean, and rapeseed/mustard account for over half of the output of cultivated oilseeds in India. Efficiency gains in the oilseed-processing sector have been hampered by poor infrastructure and policies restricting economies of scale in processing plants. Carried out with in-depth analysis, the report 'India Edible Oil Market Outlook, 2027-28' published by Bonafide Research, gives an insight into the transformation to occur in the edible oil market. With consumer buying behaviour differing among the states, the northern region is expected to lead the market in terms of consumption of packaged edible oil.
With the increasing awareness about the health benefits of the different oils, the perception of the consumers, and the commonly seen trend is the inclusion of a variety of oil in the daily diet. With this, there has been a considerable shift from traditional oils towards non-traditional oils, such as olive oil and rice bran oil to name a few. Yet, this has not stopped consumers from eliminating traditional oil from their diet. Edible oil packaging has evolved over the years to encompass a wide range of packaging products such as jerry cans, pouches, jars, tin cans, and bottles, among others. The growth of the packaged oil type was not even and only certain variants showed growth in the market. After more than a year of sustaining lockdown, the firms have started to witness recovery in demand with major players now confident of sustaining growth if the situation remains favorable.
As domestic production does not meet the increasing domestic demand, India relies highly on imports, with few oils contributing significantly to the exports. Crushing of groundnut, rapeseed/mustard, and sunflower is reserved for the small-scale sector. These makeup over two-thirds of the aggregate oilseed output of the country. This has translated into a lack of significant investments in large, integrated processing plants and poor economies of scale in the operations of existing players. To harmonize the interests of farmers, processors, and consumers and at the same time, regulate the large import of edible oils to the extent possible, the import duty structure on edible oils is reviewed from time to time. The country exports edible oils in small quantities to meet expatriate demand. The rise in exports of edible oils is a positive development for India’s oilseed growers, enabling higher realizations for the crops. The rise in bulk exports is seen as a big boost as it brightens the prospects for better remuneration for the oilseed crops. Edible oils are freely exportable in bulk, while mustard oil is allowed in consumer packs not exceeding 5 kg.
The growth in the edible oil industry has resulted from many driving factors; not only from the demand perspective but also from a consumer perspective. From the consumer trends perspective, demand is driven in the area of fat content, health benefits, packaging, and price. This increasing awareness is the reason for the consumer shift from the unorganized market to the purchase of branded edible oil.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, in early 2020, however, had disrupted the supply chains of edible oil due to the temporary shutdown of several oil production units, restricted import activities, and the unavailability of raw materials. Furthermore, the national lockdown had led to a temporary closure of hotels, restaurants, canteens, and public food joints in the country, thereby negatively affecting the demand of edible oil. The market is, however, expected to recover as normalcy is regained.
