Fueled by exponential growth in the United States, companies are now realizing the global market potential and increasing adoption rates in the Asian markets. Major market participants, including dōTERRA and Young Living, are hedging their bets in Asia, specifically, China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. This growth strategy will pay off in dividends as key players are planning for market saturation in the United States, currently the largest market valued at over $4 billion, around 2017-2018. Revenues for the United States are estimated to reach over $10 billion by 2022. The direct sales channel dominates distribution with over 60 percent of the market. Consumers need to feel and smell the oils. They must also be educated about the benefits, initially, until they are familiar with the concept and products. These factors make direct selling a perfect catalyst for essential oils. dōTERRA is singularly responsible for the rapid category growth. By creating awareness through their MLM model, even competitors have cited an increase in sales from dōTERRA’s market presence. Common market drivers include the proliferation of the health and wellness megatrend, consumer preferences towards organic and natural products, female purchasers, and increasing retail presence. Market restraints include questionable benefits, lack of standards, increasing competition and misinformation.
