Global castor oil and derivatives market is expected to reach USD 1.81 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growth of key end-use industries including biodiesel, lubricants and cosmetics is expected to drive the global castor oil and derivatives market. Volatile crude oil prices have prompted a strong shift towards substitution of conventional fuel by bio fuels which is also expected to have a positive influence on the market growth. Threat from other vegetable oils in terms of price and application scope is expected to remain a key challenge for market participants. High dependency on seasonality for better crop yield is also expected to hinder the market growth.
