Press Release

essential oils market reportSAN ANTONIO, MARCH 31, 2018 -- A new analysis by Verify Markets shows the Global Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Market to be valued at over $5.0 billion in 2017. The market is expected to experience explosive growth during the next seven years, mainly due to the popularity of the direct sales channel and the increasing health and wellness trend.

Today, consumers are placing more value on health and wellness than on material objects. Consumers are shifting away from purchasing luxury goods in favor of spending on wellness as a luxury. As a result, natural products and health food stores are seeing a major growth and are becoming prevalent, mainly in North America and Europe. Moreover, businesses are increasingly integrating the use of aromatherapy into their business practices. In particular, yoga studios, spas, and even some hotels are incorporating essential oils into their daily operations.

The direct sales channel dominates the distribution channel with a market share of over 50.0 percent by revenues. The two main companies in the market, doTERRA and Young Living, are playing a prominent role in educating consumers about the use of essential oils through their direct sales model. This approach allows for customers to experience the product and learn about it.

There are some challenges that essential oil companies need to overcome in the short and medium-term. The first important challenge is the lack of industry standards. As of 2017, there was no real certification or governing body for essential oils. Some companies use the term ‘aromatherapy grade’ or ‘therapeutic grade’ to convey to the consumer that their oils were carefully chosen and tested for use. In fact, some market participants have trademarked either their process or product under what they deem as strict quality standards. Secondly, quality control standards for essential oils do not currently exist; several essential oils of questionable quality at a very low prices can be found online and in retail stores. Increasing competition from these low-cost essential oil suppliers is affecting the market.
