Marginal growth: Health consciousness will drive demand, but imports will hamper sales

Margarine & Cooking Oil Processing in the US

While the Margarine and Cooking Oil Processing industry experienced moderate growth over the five years to 2014, revenue will slow as imports and price competition hamper domestic performance. Demand will remain resilient as health-conscious consumers purchase more vegetable oils, though the link between high-fructose corn syrup and obesity will lead downstream entities, such as soft drink producers, to substitute corn syrup for other sweeteners.

Operators in this industry produce vegetable oil, shortening and margarine. Activities include wet milling corn and vegetables, crushing oilseeds and tree nuts, refining and blending vegetable oils and blending purchased animal fats with vegetable fats. The industry also includes starch production.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
