Key Market Trends

Supportive policies on vegetable oil usage in various countries

EU's consumption of vegetable oil in biofuel has been largely driven by the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). This directive, established in 2009, requires 10% of the energy consumption in road and rail transport in 2020 to be from renewable sources. EU Member States (countries) are required to implement this target with national laws and incentives, such as blending mandates.

Palm oil contributes around 20% to the production of biodiesel (fatty acid methyl ester) and renewable diesel (hydrotreated vegetable oil) in the EU. The other major feedstocks for producing diesel substitutes are rapeseed, used in cooking oil and animal fats. The main policy promoting the use of biofuel in the United States is the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which mandates the consumption of increasing volumes of biofuel each year.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Market

Asia-Pacific registers as the dominant region across the globe and in Asia-Pacific; China holds the largest share of vegetable oil consumption, as well as production. Though the production volume is high, consumption exceeds production, resulting in higher import volumes when compared to export volumes. China is an import-oriented country. The Chinese vegetable oil market majorly encompasses palm oil, soybean, rapeseed, peanut, sunflower oil, and olive oil. Over the past five years, soybean and palm oil had the largest shares in the Chinese vegetable oil market.
