Global Borage Oil Market: Overview
The increasing demand for cosmetics, dietary supplements, and nutraceuticals made from natural ingredients is boosting the
global borage oil market. Borage oil is rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) hence possesses extraordinary anti-inflammatory
properties. This makes it a preferred ingredient for use in skin ointments and cosmetics. Borage oil is also used for direct human
consumption as a food supplement or through capsules.
Borage oil is obtained by pressing seeds of borage plants. Borage grows wildly throughout North America and Europe. GLA
present in borage oil is rich in fatty acids that body converts to prostaglandin, which acts like a hormone. Prostaglandin has
anti-inflammatory properties that help in dilating blood vessels.
Borage oil has proven to aid weight loss. Borage oil also helps in reducing the overall inflammation in the body. Thus it is
considered to aid in weight loss programs, which is a prime factor driving the demand for borage oil worldwide. Furthermore,
GLA’s other health properties that bolster demand for borage oil are documented more widely than its role in dieting.

Global Borage Oil Market: Key Opportunities and Threats
In terms of application, the market witnessed the highest demand from the medical segment. The increasing demand for borage
oil supplements and capsules for the treatment of diseases such as obesity, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, premenstrual
syndrome, cough, stroke, depression, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, and others. Borage oil is also used in nutraceuticals and
anti-inflammatory drugs and ointments where it is either consumed directly or in combination with other base oils.
The implementation of favorable regulations encouraging the use of natural ingredients in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and
other food applications is driving the global borage oil market. Earlier, the cultivation of borage crop was limited only to the
Mediterranean region, but now it is cultivated for seed oil extensively across New Zealand, Canada, and the U.K. Of these,
Canada and the U.K. have emerged as the largest producers of borage oil since they enjoy the strategic advantage of being
located at a higher altitude and have favorable weather conditions. Borage oil is therefore available in these countries at a
relatively lower cost than other regions.
However, unpredictable rain and frost in these countries can result in drastic fluctuations in raw material supply, which can
negatively impact borage oil production.
Global Borage Oil Market: Region-wise Outlook
Regionally, Asia Pacific accounts for the largest share in the global forage oil market. The rapidly increasing demand for
cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals positively aids the expansion of the borage oil market in the region.
The majority of the leading pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturers have identified emerging nations in Asia Pacific such as
India, Indonesia, and China as their production hubs. This in turn has fuelled the demand for borage oil from the Asia Pacific. The
market is also expected to gain from the surging demand for organic and natural cosmetics in North America.
