VIEW PROFILE
The year 2019 had indeed been a good year for the Malaysian oil palm industry with improvements have been recorded in many key performance indicators such as crude palm oil (CPO) production, exports and palm oil stocks. The beginning of 2020 witnessed the CPO production in January significantly lower than that of January 2019. However, the production was catching up hence narrowing the production gap year on year. The year 2020 also witness the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic which has changed the landscape of the global economy. COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting some activities within the supply chain in the palm oil industry, of which exports were among the most affected segments due to changes in consumer spending behaviour resulted from the pandemic. For the first four (4) months of 2020, Malaysian palm oil industry recorded lower exports. The average CPO price during that period was higher than that of last year. However, the prices were on the downward trend due to unexciting demand and this had caused piling up in stocks. The pandemic not only disrupt the external demand for palm oil, but also affect demand for biodiesel. Lacklustre in Brent crude oil prices which worsened by the pandemic has widened the price gap between palm biodiesel and petroleum diesel. Consequently, this creates an unfavourable situation for discretionary biodiesel usage. This paper will further provide the details of the performance of the Malaysian oil palm industry for the first five months of 2020, covering all the above-mentioned issues as well as the expected development for the remaining 2020.
