Global S&D and Price Outlook of CPO
By: Marketing And Market Development Division, MPOC

The Marketing & Market Development Division spearheads the promotion and marketing activities of Malaysia Palm Oil in the effort to make it the leading oil in the global oils and fats market. The aim is to create and establish a positive image for Malaysia Palm Oil in order to maximise returns to the Malaysian palm oil industry.

Market Expansion

This Division enhances the growth of the Malaysia Palm Oil market through new developments and the expansion of existing markets. To compete successfully, innovative approaches are developed. Various proactive programmes targeting trade and consumer markets are carried out to extend into new markets. In addition, new opportunities for investment, cooperation abroad and joint marketing are constantly being sought out to obtain a greater market foothold.


Trade fairs and seminars such as Palm Oil Trade Fair and Seminars (POTS) showcase the products and services of palm oil producers and sellers, while broadening their business opportunities. At these events, business contacts and participants are updated with information and knowledge about the palm oil industry.

Market Networking

The development of a market intelligence network, market linkages and awareness programmes helps foster closer ties with industry-related bodies. These strategies help to educate and influence those who have a keen interest in Malaysia Palm Oil, i.e. policy makers, the trade community, consumers, scientists, medical professionals and researchers.

This paper will analyse issues that will affect palm oil price in the second half of 2019 such as demand and supply analysis and we will also take into account the influence of the current rise in crude oil price on palm oil. Demand for palm oil from major consuming countries such as India, China, EU and USA are other factors taken into account. The regional analysis on the demand and supply scenarios will be aggregated at the global level to forecast the price, demand and supply balance in the second half of 2019.

The US-China trade war should bode well for takeup of PO by China due to greatly reduced import of soybean oil from US by China. What are the steps taken by Malaysia to ensure we get the major orders from China?

1.What is the possible consequences of higher population growth on the overall oils and fats where the Food and/or Energy Supply and Demand is actually involving the same source of oils 2.Whether the competition between Food and/or Energy will give double impact to oils&fats price, how will the price outlook be?
Izham Hassan:
1. Population growth and increased income, especially in developing countries, will result in higher demand for oils and fats. The demand for oils and fats for energy use is segmented and is mainly in developed countries such as USA and Europe and other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil and Colombia. Although it may be possible that oils and fats use in energy may impact supply for food use, the consequence will be cushioned by higher production through more efficient land use and technology applications. 2. The energy market is very big and the oils and fats production is unlikely to be sufficient to totally replace fossil fuels. There is no competition between food/energy and the impact is limited as these markets are very segmented. The price outlook will remain positive as production will always rise to meet consumption.
