VIEW PROFILE
After almost two years since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global economy has seen a gradual recovery and is poised to stage a robust recovery in 2022. Global economic growth is expected to accelerate this year, largely on the strength of higher consumer spending in major economies.

Demand for vegetable oils has seen a growth in tandem with the economic recovery but supply disruptions has seen vegetable oil prices has increasing to record high levels especially over the past six months. The geo-political instability in Eastern Europe has resulted in increasing crude mineral oil prices and this has also pushed up vegetable oils prices and coupled with inflation rates are taking their toll on consumption of food and other commodities. World stocks of vegetable oils were slightly below the year-ago level and insufficient production is seen keeping stocks low.
Palm oil prices have skyrocketed in February 2022 and established new record highs, supported by current low stocks and lower than expected production in the two predominant producing countries. The Indonesian government’s decision to monitor exports and domestic supplies of palm oil was the latest in a series of chain reactions and the upward trend in palm oil prices is expected to continue at least until the third quarter of 2022.

We anticipate that 2022 will see a continuous recovery both in the global economy and oils and fats prices. There will be production growth recovery among all types of oils and fats while demand will also continue to increase in tandem. Oils and fats production globally will again be led by palm oil which 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.

We will analyse recent issues that will affect palm oil price in 2022 and we will also take into account the influence of the other competing oils especially in the first half of this year. Demand for palm oil from major consuming countries is 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 in 2022.
