REPORT SNAPSHOT

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • A growing number of health-conscious consumers is supporting industry demand
  • While domestic production has taken a larger share of the market, US consumers still rely on imports
  • Publicizing olive oil’s health benefits will continue to provide an opportunity for the industry
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Olive Oil Production industry has taken off in the five years to 2017. Olive oil is an increasingly popular food product, and domestic food producers have decided to take on production themselves rather than rely fully on imported olive oil. Consequently, the industry has grown over the past five years. Health benefits explain a large part of olive oil's popularity; significant media attention has been devoted to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticlotting properties, much of which is due to the product's high phenolic compound content. A growing number of health-conscious consumers is supporting industry demand. Industry demand and revenue will likely continue to rise, albeit at a slower pace, over the five years to 2022.
