Palm Oil Prices December 2023

Category Region Price
Palm Oil Agricultural Feedstock Malaysia 810 USD/MT


In the fourth quarter of 2023, the price of palm oil in Malaysia reached 810 USD/MT by December. In October, palm oil prices declined alongside a surplus inventory buildup, indicating predictions of increased production compared to exports. However, November saw a significant price rise driven by factors like the El Nino phenomenon, increased food industry consumption, and sustained high crude oil prices. But the prices again declined by December due to slowing exports, particularly from key importing nations like India, leading to higher inventories. This downturn was typical of the seasonal dip in global vegetable oil demand, prompting Malaysia to focus on clearing stocks at lower costs by year-end 2023.

  • One of the primary uses of palm oil is in the food industry, where it serves as a key ingredient in numerous processed foods. Its high stability and neutral flavor make it ideal for frying, baking, and shortening, bolstering the market growth.
  • Similarly, palm oil is used as a critical ingredient in many snack foods, such as cookies, crackers, and chips, where it enhances texture and extends shelf life due to its resistance to rancidity, thus expanding the market reach.
  • Another significant factor contributing to the market growth is the surging product utilization in the manufacturing of personal care products. Its natural emollient properties make it an excellent moisturizer, commonly found in soaps, lotions, and creams. Besides this, in soap production, palm oil contributes to the hardness and lather quality, providing a cleansing yet gentle effect on the skin.
  • Additionally, palm oil's presence in shampoos and conditioners helps to nourish and hydrate hair, giving it a smooth and shiny appearance. In addition to this, its wide availability and cost-effectiveness make palm oil a staple ingredient in the personal care industry, bolstering the market growth.
  • Palm oil possesses several distinctive features that contribute to its widespread use. It is a highly stable oil, resistant to oxidation and rancidity, which makes it suitable for high-temperature cooking and extends the shelf life of food products, aiding in market expansion.
  • Moreover, the cost-effectiveness of palm oil compared to other vegetable oils is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Its lower production costs and high yield efficiency result in a competitively priced product, making it an appealing choice for food manufacturers and other industries.
  • Besides this, palm oil is a key feedstock for biodiesel production due to its high oil content and renewability. Consequently, the push towards renewable energy sources and reducing reliance on fossil fuels is boosting the demand for palm oil in the biofuel sector.
  • Furthermore, palm oil is rich in vitamin E and beta-carotene, which provide antioxidant benefits. These nutritional properties contribute to its inclusion in dietary supplements and functional foods, driving demand among health-conscious consumers.
  • Apart from this, palm oil's high yield per hectare compared to other vegetable oils makes it a highly efficient and economically viable crop, supporting its extensive production and use globally, which, in turn, is impelling the market growth.

Product Description

Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree, primarily the species Elaeis guineensis. It is one of the most widely produced and consumed oils globally due to its high yield and versatile properties. The oil is extracted from both the pulp of the fruit and the kernel or seed.

Palm oil has a broad range of applications across industries due to its versatility and cost-effectiveness. In the food industry, it is a common ingredient in many processed foods, such as margarine, ice cream, and baked goods, due to its semi-solid state at room temperature and resistance to oxidation. Beyond food, palm oil is also used in the production of personal care products, including soaps, shampoos, and cosmetics, due to its moisturizing properties and ability to create a rich lather.

In Q4 2023, palm oil prices in Europe mirrored North American trends, with the market displaying pronounced bullish tendencies. This optimism was driven by increased demand from the food and personal care industries, resulting in ongoing transactions and tight inventory levels.

Limited palm fruit availability and higher biodiesel consumption in Malaysia and Indonesia caused production halts, further tightening supply.
