Grapefruit oil plays a vital role in formulation of fragrances that boost autonomic nerve balance and improve immunity. Moreover, studies also advocate high applicability of grapefruit oil in stress and aromatherapy especially in work environments.

Perfumeries, which are among the largest end use segments in grapefruit oil market, is anticipated to witness a number of patent registrations in the upcoming years – as indicated by the innovations of perfume compositions of various brands, tracked in the report.

In the backdrop of severe imbalance of grapefruit oil supply and demand observed over the recent past, the global grapefruit oil is witnessing a consistently sharp increase in the price of grapefruit oil. Although synthetic production of grapefruit oil from the widely available orange oil is possible, regulatory norms are likely to hit due to high energy consumption and toxic byproducts generation involved in the process. A recent research conducted at the University of Oxford successfully proposes a novel, environmentally sustainable process for grapefruit oil production. The flavoring that this process offers is being claimed to be qualitatively matching naturally sourced grapefruit oil, which is expected to be a strong trigger for innovations in product formulation within the competitive landscape of global grapefruit oil market, in the near future.



Based on the source type, natural grapefruit oil is expected to remain superior in terms of sales revenue over organic grapefruit oil. In 2017, the former registered around two-third share of the total grapefruit oil market value, as indicated by the global grapefruit oil market report. The latter will however demonstrate growth at a moderate pace throughout the projection period. Among different forms of grapefruit oil, the US$ 90 million worth concentrates will continue to hold an important position in the grapefruit oil market, exhibiting a steady CAGR towards 2022 end. Application-wise, aromatherapy is likely to remain one of the top areas of opportunity for grapefruit oil producers, estimated to be reaching beyond US$ 17 Mn by the end of forecast period. However, therapeutics and F&B will possibly outweigh aromatherapy in terms of market value share.
