This market research report on the US essential oils market includes a detailed segmentation by product, end-user, geography. In terms of revenue, frankincense essential oil dominated the market and reported over USD 69 million in 2020.

The orange essential oils experienced the highest demand by volume, followed by peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon, clove, and frankincense essential oil.

The demand for orange essential oil is expected to reach 61-kilo tons by 2026, growing at an impressive CAGR of over 9%.

Moreover, eucalyptus oil is majorly used in treating wounds, burns, abrasions, sores, and scrape, thereby increasing the application in the healthcare industry. Therefore, eucalyptus oils are expected to witness significant growth both in terms of value and volume.

Several end-user industries drive the demand for essential oils due to several flavors and fragrances. In terms of revenue and volume, the F&B industry held the largest market share in the US essential oils market. However, the demand for essential oils in the cosmetics & personal care industry and spa & relaxation industries are expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.
