As a result, the majority of the population is turning to organic products to gain health benefits.

Key raw material suppliers include Essential Oils Company, Kao Chemicals, The Fragrance Foundation, The Chemical Company, and Phoenix Aromas and Essential Oils, LLC. Companies such as Biolandes, India Essential Oils, Young Living Essential Oils, and others have integrated their operations to provide raw materials as well as manufacture the final product in order to cut down on raw materials procurement and operation costs.

Rising demand for oranges, lemon, corn mint, and other similar crops owing to the increasing population is expected to push prices even higher over the forecast period. Global water scarcity, natural disasters, and other factors created a food shortage in recent years leading to high prices for basic commodities and crops.
