After witnessing a consistent rise in the price of Mustard Oil across the International market, the prices are projected to remain on the upper side as of the first half of the fourth quarter of 2023. In early October, the prices of Mustard Oil extracted from Mustard seed did not witness any major fluctuations in supply as retailers and suppliers consistently placed their orders to the manufacturers. The manufacturers possessed enough seed stock, which was further in the wake of higher harvesting activity of Mustard seed in 2023, resulting in an excessive stockpile.

Furthermore, one of the factors contributing to a rising price trajectory notably includes an increase in the cost of production, which has further exacerbated the situation. The rising cost of production is a major factor contributing to higher prices of Mustard Oil. The rising charge of production, including higher input costs such as seeds, labor, and energy, has increased in recent months due to factors such as inflation and supply chain disruptions. This has made it more expensive for producers to grow mustard seeds and produce Mustard Oil. In addition, Consumers, especially in regions where Mustard Oil is a staple ingredient, are feeling the pinch of these rising prices. Households are witnessing an increase in their grocery bills, impacting their overall budget planning. Similarly, businesses reliant on Mustard Oil for their products face challenges in maintaining competitive pricing, potentially affecting their profit margins.

Aside from that, the price of marketing Mustard Oil significantly increased because Mustard Oil is a common cooking oil in India, and demand is predicted to rise during the approaching holiday season. One of the largest festivals in India is Diwali, which is observed in October or November each year. To celebrate, Mustard Oil is frequently used in special recipes. Because of this, trade between the APAC region and overseas markets is still impacted, which could further increase Mustard Oil prices worldwide.

In addition, experts advise businesses and consumers to remain aware of market dynamics and consider coping mechanisms in case Mustard Oil prices continue to rise in the face of these difficulties. This could involve looking for bulk purchase discounts, investigating substitute suppliers, or broadening the range of products companies offer to offset the higher production costs.

As October draws to a close, consumers and businesses struggle to cope with the ongoing rise in factory prices, placing the global Mustard Oil market in a precarious position. According to ChemAnalyst's prediction, the next few months will be critical for monitoring market activity for Mustard Oil and how different stakeholders address these issues, which will help shape the Mustard Oil industry's future globally.
