A latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Castor Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global castor oil market has reached a volume of around 1,800 Thousand Tons in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 4% during 2009-2016. Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of the castor plant. It originated in the tropical belt of India and Africa and is mostly cultivated in arid and semi-arid regions. In the past five years, the market has witnessed a reduction in the production levels of castor seeds as a result of decline in the sowing area. However, due to delayed monsoon in India after 2013, farmers were driven towards growing castor crops as these require less water during plantation. Consequently, the production of castor oil has accelerated from the year 2013 onwards. According to the report, the market for castor oil is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during 2017-2022, reaching a volume of more than 2,200 Thousand Tons by 2022.
