Overview of Global Palm Oil Market
Palm oil is a type of edible vegetable oil derived from the palm fruit. With rapid increase in the per capita human consumption of vegetable oils, the demand for palm oil has increased. It is used in food products, detergents, cosmetics, as well as in biofuel.
The report points out that the low trans-fat content of palm oil along with its cost-effectiveness has led to increased demand from the global palm oil market. However, palm oil plantations have posed environmental risks, as the expansion of palm oil plantations is usually done at the expense of tropical forests, especially in regions such as Malaysia. Deforestation for palm oil production has contributed to climate change and has increased the chances of many animal species going extinct. The report cites that this would negatively impact the overall market. Sustainable palm oil production is expected to open new opportunities for the market.
The report studies the demand for various types of palm oil such as palm kernel oil, red palm oil, fractionated palm oil, white palm oil, and others. The report segments the global palm oil market on the basis of the applications of palm oil in sectors such as food, health, energy, and others, including cosmetics. In the past few years, the utility of palm oil in feedstock to produce biofuels has boosted the overall market.
The report studies the global palm oil market in four key regions: Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World. Malaysia is the world’s largest palm oil producer. However, the large number of ageing palm trees, yielding lower volumes of palm oil, has hindered the growth of the market in the region. Countries such as India and China are expected to contribute significantly towards the growth of the market during the forecast horizon.
