“The Key Drivers of the Global Specialty Fats & Oils Market are Growth in the Consumption of Confectionery and Processed foods and Health-conscious Consumers.”

Global economic development has led to rise in disposable income and busy routines, which in turn, contribute to a surge in the demand for treated food and confectionery products. The rising demand for confectionery and chocolates across the globe is pushing the specialty fats & oils market largely. According to the Statistical Bulletin of CAOBISCO (Association of the Chocolate, Biscuit & Confectionery Industries of the EU), the biscuits, confectionery & chocolate industry contributed substantially in the European economy. Intake of confectionery food products is expected to see improvement in the future as well, acting as a propelling factor for the development of the specialty fats & oils market.
The customers have started following strict health norms to improve the quality of their life. In this quest, people have lowered their intake of cholesterol, which keeps them away from consumption of regular cooking oils. Hence, the demand for specialty oils and fats is increasing year over year due to their nutritional value.

Despite the presence of many supportive factors for the market, the supply of these products depends on good crop yield, which keeps fluctuating in many areas because of an erratic rainfall pattern and changing climatic conditions. Moreover, agricultural land has also been decreasing leading to less production. Production of specialty oils such as palm faces issues related to emission of harmful gases. These reasons are likely to restrain development during the forecast period.
