Overview of Indian Edible oil Industry

Indian edible oil industry is the worlds fourth-largest industry after USA, China and Brazil and accounts for around 9% of the worlds oil seed production. It is highly fragmented with extreme variation in the consumption pattern of Indian consumers of edible oil.

Palm Oil is consumed the most by lower income category of Indian society. Consumption of Palm oil in India is now nearly 45% of the total oil consumption followed by Soybean oil and Rapeseed oil. Also the Indian edible oil demand is quiet elastic and does reduce or increase to an extent with change in prices. Indias cooking oil imports rose about 10 per cent to 15.57.

FDI in oil palm plantations which is one of the important steps in helping fill the gap of edible oil deficit in India.
