Market Segmentation:

Golden or Brown sesame seed segment held highest market revenue share of XX% in the year 2021

The golden or brown sesame seed segment held the highest market revenue share due to the higher consumer demand for its colour and flavour. Brown sesame seeds are generally well known for their nutty flavour and radiant texture. Brown sesame seeds have a slightly sweet flavour and aroma. With their latent golden color, brown sesame seeds are primarily used to extract edible oil, which gives a good flavor to the oil. These seeds are consumed for their high protein and mineral content. Many of these minerals have a vital role in bone mineralization, red blood cell production, enzyme synthesis and hormone production, and regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle activities. Brown sesame is also a rich source of calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper. 

White sesame seeds are another segment popular for their flavour. The unhulled natural white sesame seeds are tear-shaped white seeds with a nutty texture and rich flavour. They are one of the most popular seeds globally and are used in many cuisines and recipes. They are also one of the oldest condiments and are loaded with natural oils. Natural white sesame seeds are the purest form of sesame seeds.

Based on the application, food and beverages segment share contributed for the largest share in the year 2021. Sesame oil is used for the cooking of meats and vegetables.

India is very price-sensitive, and high prices reduced the demand for sesame oil. Due to price increases, price-conscious consumers were looking for other options and cheaper brands. In covid, which impacted their disruption in the distribution network, sesame oil refiners struggled to sell their finished goods. Shutting down of food service industry impacted the market negatively.
