It has become a known fact that palm oil is presently the most dominant oil among other oils and fats as it dominated in the past the global production, consumption, and trading sectors of the oils and fats. Palm oil will continue its domination in the future from 2015 to 2020 since it will continue to uphold its significant contributing factors such as highest productivity, price competitiveness, and techno-economic advantages over the others. Malaysia and Indonesia will continue to be the main producers and are expected to produce about 53.48 and 69.47 Mn T in 2015 and 2020 respectively. As world population is expected to increase, hence, total consumption of oils and fats will probably increase too. In this respect, China, India, United States, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Russia and Japan will be the top ten countries with the largest population in the world. They are expected to consume higher oils and fats, especially palm oil in the future. The increase in total consumption of oils and fats will be partly due to the continuous intake of palm oil. Subsequently, palm oil will continue to be the major oil to feed the world

Dear Mr. Ramli Abdullah Thanks for an informative presentation. As gathered from media reports, yearend deluge, the worst flood after 1972 that hit 3 east coast states of Peninsula Malaysia may cause lower yield of palm oil in the months to come. Do you thank that would have any negative impact on total production of 20.09 million tonnes of palm oil in Malaysia in 2015, as forecast in your slide? Appreciate your comment.
The expected prodn in 2015 of 20.09 million tonnes had taken into consideration the effect of floods at end of 2014 and the spill over effect in early January 2015. The weather is expected to be normal towards the end of 2015. The prodn is expected to increase due to the increase in matured area.
