Some of the Major Factors Driving the Growth of the Market
One of the major factors responsible for driving the growth of the global tea tree oil market includes increasing demand for herbal, natural and organic cosmetics, and personal care products.

Nowadays, the healthcare manufacturers are focusing more towards the quality of raw materials or ingredients used in products, owing to the increasing level of income, the greater emphasis of consumers towards healthcare, and increasing urban population.
Furthermore, the healthcare industry is the biggest consumer of tea tree oil, as it is widely used in the treatment of various skin related infections, dental care, fungal infections, and cold, as well as in products such as skin ointments. On the other hand, the improper use of tea tree oil may result in possible side effects such as skin irritation, redness, burning, etc., which is expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period.
