In the personal care sector, neem extract is used in body lotions, fairness creams, and hand creams among others owing to zero side effects resulting from its application. The global neem extract market is slated to value US$1,126.8 mn by 2019, exhibiting a double-digit CAGR during the forecast period.

By way of application, the global market for neem extract is divided into pharmaceuticals, personal care, animal feed, and chemicals and fertilizers. Fertilizers are a key application area for neem extracts owing to the soaring demand for bio-insecticides and bio-pesticides, mainly in agriculture-centric regions such as Asia Pacific. Growing awareness among consumers and strict government regulations pertaining to the harmful effects of chemical fertilizers on personal health and the overall environment has played a major role in the rising uptake of neem extract as a key ingredient in many biofertilizers.

The personal care and cosmetics industry is also a key application segment, with an increasing number of consumers leaning toward herbal beauty care products. Natural ingredients are in great demand and neem extracts – with their plethora of benefits – are a key ingredient. In addition to this, the antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory advantages presented by neem extract makes them an important element in the pharmaceutical sector.

Neeming Australia Pvt. Ltd., Parker India Group Pvt. Ltd., Ozone Biotech, Prithvi Exports, Fortune Biotech Ltd., P J Margo Pvt Ltd., E.I.D Perry India Ltd., Trifolio-M GmbH, and Agro Extracts Limited are some of the prominent names in the neem extracts market, hinting at the fragmented nature of this market. An increasing number of smaller players has also rendered the neem extracts market rather fragmented. This can be attributed to favorable climatic conditions in several parts of APAC, growing scope of application of neem extracts in a wide range of industries, and low manufacturing cost.
