According to report published by Grand View Research, Global Aromatherapy Market size was valued at USD 1.07 billion in 2016 and is projected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period.
The Global Aromatherapy Market is anticipated to reach USD 2.35 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This growth can be attributed to the increased awareness about the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
Aromatherapy is expected to play a significant role in the field of alternative medicines with a gradual shift from man-made drugs toward essential oils to gain therapeutic values. On the basis of a 2016 article by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a clinical trial was conducted on 50 patients suffering from second- and third-degree burns to study the effects of essential oils inhalation. The result showed that it was significantly effective in reducing pain arising from such burn wounds. Hence, aromatherapy can be used as a complementary therapy for pain relief amongst burn patients, thereby, supporting the growth of the aromatherapy market. Some of the other therapeutic applications include skin-related problems, digestion problems, respiratory disorders, insomnia, and immune system functioning.
Essential oils also possess many factors that make them naturally healing solutions. Therapeutic grade essential oils positively impact the overall wellness of the patient. These products have the potential to be a natural cleanser and an antibacterial remedy when ingested. People are also becoming aware of the benefits offered by natural therapies as they support the body’s innate healing abilities. With experience & education, they are realizing that bacteria and viruses do not develop resistance to natural substances, the way they do in case of synthetic drugs.
