Global Linseed/Flaxseed Market - Segmented by Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Linseed or flaxseed is an important traded commodity due to its oil and nutrient benefits in many industries, like textiles, paper, and wood finishing products. Linseed and its oil are marketed as health-food products. The consumers’ developing consciousness about health and wellbeing is driving the market demand for linseed across the globe. Linseeds can be used to make bread, cereal, cracker, energy bar, oil, snacks, and pet food.

Canada, China, Russia, India, the UK, and the US are the major linseed producers, with Canada being the major producer as well as trader of linseed. In 2016, the global production for linseed was around 2.9 million metric ton. The US, China, and some European countries, like Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, are the major importers of linseeds. Belgium and China together accounted for more than 55% of the global linseed imports in the year 2016. Canada and Russia are the major exporters of linseed, and other countries, such as Kazakhstan, Belgium, and the US, are also contributing significantly to the linseed export market.

Health Benefits Diving the Linseed Market

The growing awareness among consumers about the health benefits of consuming linseed and linseed-oil is one of the major market driving factors. Linseed is rich in lignans and omega-3 fatty acids, which help improve digestion, lowers cholesterol, reduces sugar, balance hormones, and help fight cancer. Therefore, there is an increased adoption of linseed in the everyday diet which is ultimately encouraging market growth.

Canada is the Largest Exporter and Producer of Linseed/Flaxseed

Canada is the largest producer and exporter of linseed worldwide. Canada exported 620.6 thousand metric ton of linseed/flaxseed in the year 2016, which accounts for approximately 32.5% of the total global exports. There is a significant increase in supply in the markets of Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan, due to which the Canadian exports of linseed to the European countries is estimated to decrease in the forecast period.
