Industrial Hemp Market Size To Worth USD 28.47 Billion By 2032 | CAGR of 19%


Legalising of industrial hemp cultivation driving the market growth. The increasing consumption of industrial hemp in textile, paper, personal care products and animal nutrition drives the market’s demand. Asia Pacific emerged as the most significant global industrial hemp market, with a 39% market revenue share in 2022.

Newark, July 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 5 billion in 2022 global industrial hemp market will reach USD 28.47 billion in 2032. Not all members of the world’s expanding population have equal access to food. The expanding food security dilemma spurred on by ongoing wars, climate change, and inefficient international organisations disproportionately affects some regions of the world. Due to its ability to grow anywhere, using less water, pesticides, and herbicides, hemp can greatly ease the load on food security. Its growth is strong. Hemp has great nutritional value; it includes fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins A, B, D, and E. Hemp seeds can meet an average adult’s daily protein needs. The world’s enormous population is also causing a rise in demand for various products, from pharmaceuticals to industrial consumer goods. Due to its adaptability, hemp is utilised in printing inks, textiles, paints, oils, and solvents. The industrial hemp market will expand due to the expanding industrial, automotive, consumer goods, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Industrial hemp’s growing applications.

Food and beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, energy, animal nutrition, nutritional supplements, automotive, paper, textiles, and construction businesses employ industrial hemp. For instance, skin and hair care products made from industrial hemp successfully treat acne, age spots, pigmentation, redness, inflammation, and hair loss. Industrial hemp stalks are used to make biofuels, a sustainable, renewable, and clean energy source in great demand today as it deals with the climate crisis. It has been demonstrated that industrial hemp-infused foods, drinks, animal feed, and nutraceuticals have good health effects. They enhance pulmonary and cardiovascular health. Construction materials made of industrial hemp emit significantly fewer carbon emissions, lessening their negative environmental effects. Its use in textiles also helps promote a recyclable and sustainable economy. These uses are anticipated to proliferate over the next years, helping the industrial hemp market expand globally.

Restraints: The high retail prices of hemp-based goods.

Despite the advantages provided by industrial hemp, its processing and production are still prohibited in many nations. Industrial hemp is only produced in limited quantities, which raises input prices. The high input costs are reflected in the high retail pricing of goods made from hemp, such as clothing, personal care items, food, drinks, and energy. Given that less expensive alternatives are on the market, consumers are not encouraged to purchase these products because of the high retail costs. As a result, the market’s expansion will be hampered by the high cost of hemp-based products.

Opportunities: The development of more advanced industrial hemp processing techniques.

Multiple scientific investigations have confirmed the numerous advantages of industrial hemp. Governments worldwide are pushing the cultivation, sale, purchase, processing, and trade of industrial hemp because of its advantages in the economy, society, and environment. The growth of industrial hemp producers, processors, merchants, and consumers is a result of the legalisation of the crop. Legalisation has also boosted the industrial hemp research, development, and innovation market. The better quality and lower input costs brought about by the new systems and processing methods have resulted in higher economic gains for producers and lower retail prices for consumers. Such innovation will keep providing attractive prospects for the future expansion and development of the global industrial hemp market.

Challenges: The stringent government regulations

the cultivation, processing and trade of industrial hemp is strictly regulated to avoid exploitation. Detailed rules, regulations and standards govern the industrial hemp market. Robust systems are in place to ensure accountability and responsible use of industrial hemp. The laws passed are strict regarding the amounts that can be produced, processed, the percentage allowed in consumer products etc., which will challenge the market’s expansion.
