According to the latest research report by IMARC Group, titled “Palm Oil Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global palm oil market size reached US$ 48.10 Billion in 2020. Palm oil is a reddish, edible vegetable oil produced from the mesocarp of oil palm fruits. As compared to other oils, it is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin E, and carotene. Other than this, palm oil remains stable at high temperatures, which makes it ideal for deep frying applications. It is free from trans-fatty acids as it does not go through the hydrogenation process that generates high amounts of trans fats that can cause various health problems. Palm oil is used in the production of numerous food items and various consumer goods, such as soaps, cosmetics, candles and detergents.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
