The growing demand for Shea butter in the food & beverage industry and cosmetics Industry are vital factors expected to encourage the growth of the global Shea butter market in the upcoming period.

Rising consumer inclination towards natural products


The key growth drivers driving the global shea butter market are increasing consumer inclination toward natural products and consumer awareness. Also, the increase in the use of shea butter in cosmetic products is driving market development. Furthermore, in the forecast period, favorable government policies are expected to boost the market. Growing the consumption of eatable products consisting of shea butter, such as chocolates, is also likely to be the main driver of growth during the forecast period.


Increasing Preference for Shea Butter as an adequate substitute to Vegetable Oil, over Rather Expensive Cocoa Butter


Cocoa butter is utilized in bakeries and confectioneries as a fat source, for providing the product's texture, luster, and snap. The demand for cocoa butter is rising with the increasing demand for chocolates and confectioneries. However, cocoa butter is anticipating supply constraints due to the decreasing yields of cocoa in major producing countries. Thus, the price of cocoa butter is rising rapidly, which is forcing the makers of chocolates and confectioneries to opt for other alternatives which are equivalents to cocoa butter. Shea butter is being widely used by the manufacturers as a suitable replacement for the expensive cocoa butter for the application in chocolates and confectioneries.
