VIEW PROFILE
As we had earlier predicted, the global oils and fats production in 2014 exceeded 200 million MT and for the year 2015, we forecast that the global oils & fats production will likely surpass 205 million MT. Driven by favourable weather the oils and fats production globally will again be led by palm oil which is poised to exceed 61 million MT and will play a crucial role in the global supply of oils and fats.

As the two top palm oil producing countries contributing to 85% of the global palm oil production, Malaysia and Indonesia will be the focus of the international oils and fats trade. With 30% of the global oils and fats production coming from Malaysia and Indonesia, the role played by both countries is vital in forecasting palm oil price.

For the first six months of this year, palm oil prices have fluctuated between RM2,150 and RM2,350/MT. The fall in crude mineral oil price during this period impacted the price of not only palm oil but also other edible oils such as soybean and sunflower oils. These are among some of the issues that will be highlighted in this paper.

This paper will analyse issues that will affect palm oil price in 2015 such as demand and supply analysis and we will also take into account the influence of the current drop in crude oil price on palm oil price especially in the first half of this year. Demand for palm oil from major consuming countries such as India, China, EU and USA is nevertheless, expected to remain upbeat and we will take these factors 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 2015.
