Basil Herb Oil Sought After in the Herb Oil Market 

The basil segment has the largest revenue share in the herb oil market and is on track to gain substantial BPS over the study period. Basil is globally renowned for its numerous health benefits and has particular resonance in the APEJ region as the plant is considered holy by some eastern religions. Thus, it is hardly surprising that APEJ alone contributes a third of the basil herb oil market in 2017 alone and companies are advised to actively market their basil herb oils to this highly populous and influential continent. Mint herb oil closely follows basil in the herb oil market but is projected to lose share going forward. The mint herb oil segment is predicted to record a sluggish CAGR of approx. 3.5% during the period 2017 to 2022 and key stakeholders may require customized strategies to attain success in the mint herb oil market. 

Niche Opportunity in Dill Herb Oil Market

The Dill herb oil segment has a single digit revenue share in the herb oil market and is unlikely to become a major force anytime soon. Nonetheless, the Dill herb oil segment is estimated to be worth almost US$ 350 million by end 2022, making it crucial for stakeholders in the herb oil market to be present in this segment. The other herbs segment is even smaller than the Dill herb segment and companies could seek to target either North America or Europe in the other herbs segment as the maximum demand is in these two developed regions of the global herb oil market
