Corn is a popular industrial cereal, food, and feed, primarily used in the food industry as a cooking medium, and for the production of hydrogenated oil. Corn oil, procured from the kernel of corn, is pale yellow oil. The first-ever commercial corn oil production took place in 1889. In the recent past, corn oil became the fastest growing feedstock in the world for biodiesel production.

The spotlight on high-quality food products initiated research & development activities for promoting and developing a healthy food supply. Product quality has become imperative in the agricultural sector. Corn oil, with its numerous health benefits, has been gaining importance among consumers as well as manufacturers over the past few years.

Corn oil forms a crucial value-added product from the leftover embryo, or, germ, coupled with the extraction of starch from endosperm of the kernel. Corn oil extraction enhances the economic and commercial value of the discarded embryo. With its various therapeutic properties, corn oil is vulnerable to use in a number of applications. The aforementioned factors are expected to influence the expansion of the global corn oil market.

Stringent environmental regulations imposed by several regulatory authorities, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the U.S., for reducing the carbon footprint has driven demand for biofuels around the world. This in turn will fuel demand for corn oil in the near future. In addition, cooking oil is one of the largest applications of corn oil.

Corn oil also finds its applications in soap production, paints, pharmaceutical preparations, and textiles. Processors of corn oil are focusing more on blending corn oil with other essential oils such as rice bran oil, and olive oil, which results in recommended ideal levels of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids. This further ensures excellent stability of flavor and taste of food. Market players are tapping the corn-producing areas in order to increase their productivity and gain higher profits.

According to a recently published study by Fact.MR, the global market for corn oil is estimated to register a moderate expansion from 2017 to 2022. Global sales of corn oil are expected to account for nearly US$ 3,500 Mn revenues by 2022-end.
