Technical Advancements Play Instrumental in Drug Discovery

Essential oils hold promising potential as drug candidates in the India essential oils market. A research team at the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Microbiology and the KU Leuven Department of Biology, Belgium, revealed that essential oil components can be obtained by dry or steam distillation processes. However, essential oil components are complex mixtures of plant metabolites, which are relatively hydrophobic and volatile in nature, thus causing interference during high throughput screening and created challenges for researchers. Hence, researchers are increasing their efficacy in technical developments coupled with restrictions on the use of chemicals for drug discovery.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Increased awareness about essential oil blends has become one of the key focus points for companies in the India essential oils market, to offer protection against coronavirus. Striking the right balance between health and indulgence is helping F&B startups to meet niche requirements of consumers. Startups should tap opportunities in online sales and rotating pop-up events, as consumers in India are gradually opening up to experimentation with F&B items.
