Customers were concerned about rising edible oil prices in May and June when vital edible oil prices rose. The demand for edible oil in India vastly outnumbers domestic production. Imports account for at least 60% of the total, and global costs are skyrocketing.

Indias oilseed output has climbed by more than 44% in the last five years, from over 25.3 million tonnes in 2015-16 to near 36.6 million tonnes in 2020-21. Even yet, this only meets around half of Indias edible oil needs.


Why are Oil prices rising?

Because India imports 56 percent of its domestic consumption, the rise in domestic costs is mostly a reflection of foreign pricing. Prices of edible oils have risen considerably in recent months on the international market due to a variety of causes.

Seasonality, when combined with a higher share of imported inputs, results in longer inventory holding periods, stretching the companies working capital. Furthermore, the unorganised markets large presence, resulting from low entry barriers, maintains the industrys profitability miserably low.

Their prices are influenced by a variety of factors, including international market conditions and domestic output. India now has to import a significant amount of edible oil due to the large imbalance between domestic consumption and supply. The federal government is working on a number of short-, medium-, and long-term solutions to permanently tackle the problem.
