The global almond oil market has been segmented, as per the global almond oil market analysis, based on type, process, and application.
Based on product type, the global almond oil market has been segmented into sweet and bitter. The sweet segment is expected to account for the larger share, and it is also projected to be growing faster than the bitter segment during the review period This oil extracted from sweet almonds is obtained from the tree called Prunus Dulcis, var. Amygdalus. Sweet almond oil is nutritious and edible as compared to bitter almond oil. In addition, sweet almond oil is used as a carrier or base oil that is obtained from the fatty portion of the almond plant with white flowers. Sweet almond oil does not evaporate or disseminate its aroma as strongly as essential oil does and is also used to dilute essential oils. Bitter almond oil is used as an essential oil in less quantity, as it is highly potent. Bitter almond oil can evaporate and contains a concentrated aroma. Moreover, it contains glycoside amygdalin, which emits extremely toxic chemicals like prussic acid and benzaldehyde. This, in turn, makes bitter almond oil not suitable for consumption as well as direct application on the skin.
The global almond oil market has been bifurcated, by process, into cold press and hot press. The cold press segment is expected to account for the larger market share as this process does not need any pre-conditioning of the almonds and the almonds are pressed directly at room temperature. This, in turn, lowers the oil temperature as well as acid value. Additionally, due to low temperature, the cold pressed almond oil does not have any adverse effect on the human body as compared to traditional high-temperature oil. Also, this helps in maintaining all the nutritional content of the oil and retain the physiologically active substance, the original taste, and flavor. Thus, the same segment is projected to register the higher CAGR during the forecast period due to the rising inclination of consumers for cold pressed almond oil.
