The demand for oilseeds is mainly driven by the growing demand for vegetable oils in the increasing number of households. Owing to the continuous increase in demand for oilseed extracts, farmers are investing in the production of oil crops with high-quality oilseeds. Moreover, the rising need for biofuels in developing as well as developed countries is triggering the growth of the oilseeds market. To fulfill the ever-growing demand for oil across the globe, farmers are inclining toward adopting genetically modified oilseeds to increase yield. Some of the reasons driving the growth of the oilseeds market include the need for healthy and organic oilseed-processed goods, public-private collaborations in varietal development, and molecular breeding in oilseeds. For instance, Government of India to launch an oilseed mission to boost domestic production of oilseeds and reduce import dependence. The scheme is expected to have elements like subsidy to farmers for buying good quality seeds, intervention by the government in the market to support prices when needed, and involvement of the private sector in making available quality seeds.

Some of the major players operating in the market include ADM, BASF SE, Bayer AG, Burrus Seed, Cargill Incorporated, Corteva, Gansu Dunhuang Seed Industry Group Co., Ltd., KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA, Mahyco Seeds, Syngenta Crop Protection AG.

“Amongst product type, animal feed to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into animal feed and edible oil. The animal feed segment was the highest contributor to the market in 2020. Meat, seafood, poultry, and milk continue to make vital contributions to global food supply and, as a result, animal feeds have become a significant component of the integrated food chain. Oilseed meal, which is a by-product of processed oilseeds after extraction of oil, is used extensively in animal feeds, and is therefore a vital economic aspect of oilseed production.

“North America expected to dominate the market in soybean segment”

North America leads the oilseed market with a large market share in 2021. This is due to the increased use of cooking oil in regular cooking, which increases oilseed production. In Canada, soybean was the largest segment because of the high demand from other countries, and the country exported about 4.4 million ton of soybeans in 2020, an increase of 418,979 ton from 4.0 million ton in 2019.
