VIEW PROFILE
The Malaysian oil palm industry had experienced strong El-Nino phenomenon in 2015/2016, which seriously impacted the palm oil production in 2016, thus affected the performance of the industry. However, between Jan-June 2017, the industry has witnessed a significant recovery in crude palm oil (CPO) production from the El-Nino phenomenon in which CPO production was 14.8% higher as compared to the corresponding period of 2016. During the same period, export of palm oil products recorded increased by 7.2% as compared to the first half of 2016. The higher export was influenced by firmer price of palm oil together with increased demand from Iran, Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan and EU, arising from lower imports of soyabean, rapeseed and rapeseed oil. The higher export demand had motivated higher imports and lower closing stock for the first half of 2017. Imports of palm oil for the first half of 2017 showed a substantial increase of 40.2% due to higher demand from domestic processing sector. Meanwhile, palm oil stocks for June 2017 was closed at 14.0% lower as compared to the corresponding month of 2016. This paper will provide an overview of the performance of the Malaysian oil palm industry for the first half of 2017 vis-à-vis the first half of 2016, covering CPO production, imports, stocks, exports and local consumption, as well as the projection for the second half of 2017.
