									               Global Palm Oil Market Report: 2013 Edition
Aarkstore Enterprise (India), 5th June , 2013 : As one of the most traded vegetable
oils, the significance of palm oil to the global economy is gaining momentum. Palm oil is
extracted from the fruit of oil palm tree (Elaeis guineensis) and its main products include
crude palm oil (CPO) and palm kernel oil (PKO). Palm oil is the world’s highest yielding oil
crop, with an output 5–10 times greater per hectare than other leading vegetable oils.
Combined with factors such as low priced, relative shelf stability, and nutritional benefits,
palm oil will remain an important commodity of global diet. Palm oil is majorly used in food
as cooking oil, in oleochemicals industry for manufacturing soaps, cosmetics, detergents,
lubricants and glues and also as a raw material for biodiesel.

Indonesia and Malaysia are the leading producers of palm oil accounting for 87% of world
production in 2011/12. Rapidly expanding population and changing consumption patterns,
as well as increasing demand from the bioenergy and oleochemicals industries, have
resulted in increased consumption of palm oil. In most regions like the EU, the US, and
Brazil, biodiesel mandates have been tightened and has thus increased the usage of
biofuels. Major importing countries of palm oil include India, China, EU-27 and Pakistan. The
prices of CPO had been fluctuating over the past year due to Euro-zone debt crisis and
stockpiling in Malaysia. Recently the Malaysian Government had reduced CPO export tax in
order to compete with top producer, Indonesia and clear excess stock. Due to challenges
such as limited land availability, labour problems and environmental issues, the focus has
now shifted to yield growth and creating a sustainable and traceable value chain.
Emergence of certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO) or green palm oil has attracted many
multinationals and buyers.

The report analyzes the global palm oil industry, its production, consumption, imports and
exports. It extensively covers the palm oil market in the two major producing regions,
Malaysia and Indonesia; as well as the two major consuming regions, India and China. The
report discusses the major drivers and key issues related to the palm oil industry. The four
major players in the palm oil industry include Wilmar International, Sime Darby, IOI
International, and PT Astra Agro. All these players have been profiled in the report, along
with their financials and strategies for growth.

By combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant
findings, we have predicted the future growth of the industry. We employed various
significant variables that have an impact on this industry and created regression models
with SPSS Base to determine the future direction of the industry. Before deploying the
regression model, the relationship between several independent or predictor variables and
the dependent variable was analyzed using standard SPSS output, including charts, tables
and tests.
