It is refined by different chemical and physical processes involving numerous steps such as settling or filtration of bran fines, degumming, dewaxing, deacidification, bleaching, and deodorization. It contains antioxidants, fatty acids, vitamin E, and natural bioactive phytoceuticals such as tocotrienols, squalene, lecithin, tocopherols, and gamma oryzanol. It is light in texture, has a neutral taste and a mild flavor, provides delicate flavors, can be blended with less stable oils, and is suitable for high-temperature cooking such as stirring and deep-frying. In addition, it improves the nervous system, increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, prevents cancer, promotes heart health and healthy blood sugar levels, and minimizes insulin resistance. As a result, rice bran oil is gaining popularity across the GCC region.

The market is primarily driven by the growing awareness regarding the various health benefits associated with consuming rice bran oil. In addition, the escalating demand for nutrient-rich, gluten-free, low-fat edible oil, which aid in weight loss, boosts immunity, and has a longer shelf life, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, there has been increasing use of rice bran oil as it has saturated, monosaturated, and polyunsaturated fats that are healthier than vegetable oils, which is also accelerating the product adoption rate across the region. Besides this, the widespread adoption of RBO in the cosmetics industry due to the presence of oryzanol that prevents aging, promotes hair growth, minimizes dark spots, treats eczema, fights acne, and protects skin from ultraviolet (UV) rays represents another major growth-inducing factor. Along with this, it is also used in the personal care sector to produce lotions, moisturizers, soaps, and hair care products. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, rising disposable incomes, changing lifestyles, increasing investment in research and development (R&D) activities, and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) between RBO competitors are some of the other factors creating a positive market outlook across the GCC region.
