VIEW PROFILE
The fundamental factor animating palm market in 2017 is low production underpinned by low yields, against high expectation of rebound in post El-Nino. Production did not rise, expectations were not met but our understanding of the market got better and deeper than the previous year. An understanding that prices are governed not just by supply, demand, weather and sentiment variables, but also by the notion that markets are highly complex and can be irrational at times. 2018 is another year of expectation of higher production from lackluster levels seen in 2017, while prices are predicted to bounce higher from current levels supported by improvement in export market. Will 2018 be better than 2017? While this optimistic expectations are valid, there are challenges ahead in 2018; sustainability, tariff and non-tariff barriers, competition from soybean oil, uninspiring biodiesel market and weakness in export are some of them. This presentation will look into the prospects and challenges for the palm market in 2018.
