Malaysian Crude Palm Oil Futures Forecast
Fundamentals affecting Palm Oil Prices (And the other Vegetable Oil Prices):
- Prices of crude palm oil and other oils depend on the outlook for stocks
- Palm oil – along with Soybean oil – is affected by crude oil prices, as it is used as feedstock to make biodiesel.
- Palm oil prices are impacted by movements in Soybean oil rates, as they compete for a share in the global vegetable oil market.
According to Reuters;
Palm oil stocks in Indonesia, the world’s top producer, were at 3.9 million tonnes in November, having peaked at close to 5 million tonnes in July. Second-largest producer Malaysia saw inventories climb to a record high of 3.2 million tonnes in December.
In an effort to boost palm oil consumption, Indonesia raised its biodiesel mandate last year to require all diesel fuel used in the nation to contain biodiesel starting from the beginning of September.
Indonesia’s mandate requires a 20 % bio-content in biodiesel, but prior to September that was mandatory only for subsidized diesel users.
At an industry conference in Malaysia on Thursday, LMC International’s head of Southeast Asia, Julian McGill, said crude palm oil prices are expected to rise to between 2,200 and 2,300 ringgit per tonne by June on a seasonal decline in stocks
If Indonesia maintains its heightened pace of biodiesel use, stocks may fall until mid-year, which will lift the crude palm oil premium over Brent. We may see a sharp rally on the prices.
