According to the report, the volatility in crude prices, high prices of hydrocarbon fuel, and strong efforts to decrease greenhouse gas emissions around the world, has significantly boosted the demand for biofuels in the transport sector. This is primarily attributed to the competitiveness in productivity and prices of palm oil. Burgeoning demand for organic food products, detergents, cosmetics, and other natural ingredient rich or derived commodities has incremented the popularity of palm oil and palm kernel oil significantly over the last decade.

The substantial upsurge in the production of palm oil is highly influenced by the consistent global expansion of the planted areas of palm. Apparently, palm oil is considered an essential socio-economic harvest in most of the countries producing it. The growing demand for palm oil in the global oils & fats industry, can be credited to its techno-economic advantages, along with other significant developments in terms of global health, environment, and supply security. These factors are likely to influence product’s global domination in oils & fats market and supply equation.
