As global awareness of sustainability and eco-conscious choices grows, so does the demand for organic products, including essential oils. South America, with its commitment to responsible farming practices and preservation of its rich biodiversity has emerged as a key player in the organic essential oil sector.

Based on the Application, the report is classified into food & beverages industry, Cosmetics, Aromatherapy, Healthcare, Home care, other applications (feed, insecticides, and paints). In South America, the cosmetics and personal care industry holds the significant share of essential oils usage whereas, the food and beverages industry holds the largest market share. The aromatic properties and various therapeutic benefits of essential oils make them highly desirable ingredients in cosmetics, perfumes, skincare products, and toiletries. These oils are incorporated into a wide range of beauty and personal care items, from fragrant perfumes and colognes to soothing lotions and natural cleansers. South America is well-known for its rich biodiversity, and many native plant species are used to produce essential oils that find their way into these cosmetic and personal care products.

By the method of extraction of essential oils, the market is classified into different processes which are Distillation, Cold press extraction, Carbon dioxide extraction, Solvent extraction, and other extraction methods (resin tapping and maceration). In South America, the most commonly used method for the extraction of essential oils is distillation (steam). This traditional technique has been widely employed for years and is particularly well-suited for extracting essential oils from a variety of aromatic plant materials. As for the future, there is a growing interest in more sustainable and environmentally friendly extraction methods, like cold-press extraction. Cold-press extraction, on the other hand, is favored for citrus oils, where the oil is mechanically pressed from the fruit peel without the application of heat. In South America, the distributional channel that dominates the essential oil market is a combination of direct sales which holds the largest market share in 2022; and through various retail outlets and e-commerce. South America’s essential oil market is highly diverse and caters to a wide range of consumers, from individual enthusiasts to large-scale industries.

This channel offers both convenience and a broad product selection. Essential oils are frequently used in the spa and wellness industry. Many spas and wellness centers source their essential oils directly from suppliers or distributors to use in massages, aromatherapy sessions, and other treatments.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about several positive impacts on the essential oils market in South America. As the world grappled with the health crisis, people sought holistic and natural remedies to enhance their well-being and boost their immune systems, resulting in increased demand for essential oils.
