"Excel in the challenging world of Oleochemicals" 

Globally, fatty acid capacity has more than doubled between 2004 and 2016, to almost 1.3 m tons. The fatty acid market is now entering a period of consolidation. Can the fatty acid producers find new markets for their product? Which downstream markets merit investment for fatty acids? How quickly are these markets and applications growing? Where can oleo-chemical companies compete with chemical companies?

Unlike fatty acids, fatty alcohol capacity is set to rise, driven by rising synthetic production. Synthetic fatty alcohols will continue to take more market share, with utilization rates rising to 90% by 2020. This will have a negative impact on the utilization rates in the natural alcohol sector, forecasted to fall to 66% in 2019.

The European Parliament and EU member states have agreed to phase out palm oil from motor fuels by 2030, easing back from an initial deadline of 2021. This gives a breather to the palm oil producers in SE Asia, especially Malaysia and Indonesia, the biggest palm oil producers in the world. This extension will give the countries more time to improve palm oil’s production management as well as seek new markets! Could China and India be the alternative markets in time to come? 

Meanwhile, Indonesia’s Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry intends to increase and expand the country’s national biodiesel mandate in order to cut fossil fuel imports and boost the consumption of palm oil. It plans for biodiesel mandate to cover the train sector from May 2018 and the mining sector from July, according to Reuters report.

Brand owners from Unilever, Kao Corp, Colgate Palmolive,  L’Oreal and many more are leading the trend to purchase only sustainably sourced palm oil that is traceable to the plantation. While raising sustainability standards might pose an initial challenge for companies, the opportunities for improving brand impact, increasing transparency and changing consumer behavior are huge.
