It is also used as an essential oil for preparing exotic dishes in the Mediterranean region. In addition, owing to the minimal processing and retention of nutrients in the oil, the consumers opt for virgin & extra virgin olive oils, thereby driving the market growth.

However, the higher cultivation cost and processing of olive as compared to sunflower seeds and other alternative sources acts as a restraining factor for the market.
