The palm tree’s fruit yields palm oil, which is widely used in the food industry. It is much sought-after in countries such as China, India, and Indonesia for its affordability and low or no trans fat content. The demand for palm oil is projected to grow in the near future, with a major part of this demand coming from emerging economies.
Palm oil can be classified broadly as palm oil, palm kernel oil, and other types. It is widely used in health, energy, and food applications, in addition to other applications that include cosmetics. Its utility in feedstock to produce biofuels has proven to be a growth booster in recent years. Malaysia accounts for nearly 80% of the global palm oil production.
The average per hectare yield from a palm plantation is higher than other comparable crops. This aspect, coupled with the relatively low production costs of palm oil have proven conducive for the growth of this market.
Though Malaysia holds the positions of the largest palm oil producer in the world, it has a large population of aging trees that yield lower volumes of palm oil. This particular aspect could hinder market growth to some degree, especially considering that demand for palm oil has been on the rise in various industrial sectors. The supply thus remains limited because of the shrinking palm tree cultivation areas in Indonesia and Malaysia.
A lucrative opportunity exists in countries such as China and India where economic growth is anticipated to be extraordinary, thus creating scope for the palm oil industry as well. As new applications of palm oil continue develop in the cosmetics and energy sector (in the form of biofuels), the market can expect to witness steady growth over the forecast period.
