Malaysia and Indonesia Productions to Drive Growth

Executive Summary

•Global fatty acids market grew from x million tons in 2009 to x million tons in 2012. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x % over the next x years, to reach x million tons in 2022.
•While North America and Europe are mature markets that are expected to grow at a slow rate, the Asia Pacific fatty acids market shows stronger growth.
•Southeast Asia is projected to strengthen its spot as the production hub for palm-based oleochemicals.
•Malaysia has a total fatty acid capacity of x million tons per annum (TPA), while Indonesia has a total fatty acids capacity of x million TPA.
•Global fatty alcohol consumption is expected to grow at a CAGR of x %, much in line with the previous x years, to reach x million tons by 2022 fromx million tons in 2012.
•With developing markets showing healthy growth rates, China is expected to become the largest market.
•Malaysia has a total fatty alcohols capacity of x tons per annum, while Indonesia produces aboutx tons of fatty alcohol annually through x key participants.
•Five projects, which are mainly in the major global production center of SE Asia, are expected to boost the total annual nameplate capacity of Asia’s fatty alcohol market to about x tons between 2013 and 2014.
•Abundant capacity coming on-stream in both fatty acids and fatty alcohols, mainly in Indonesia, could put a pressure on prices.
•Other than supply and demand factors, oleochemicals market is sensitive to variations in raw material supplies, prices, and export taxes.
•Raw material availability is not the issue. There is plenty of supply of crude palm oil (CPO), crude palm kernel oil (CPKO), but more competition is expected for its control.
•CPKO pricing has been volatile over the last few years along with CPO, and has commanded varying levels of premiums over time.
•CPO and CPKO prices are expected to remain under pressure because of seasonal peak of soybean oil production in Q4 2013.
•Stocks are at an all time high, crimping prices in the short term. Stocks are expected to be bearish in the short term bearish, but bullish in the mid to long term because of continued demand and scarcity of land availability in Indonesia.

Overview of Palm Oil and Oleochemicals Industry

•This market insight focuses on the oleochemicals market outlook. It aims to overview the market dynamics, market drivers and restraints, and the future outlook of the oleochemicals market, with focus on fatty acids and fatty alcohols.
•The oleochemicals industry is centered around the hydrolysis or alcoholysis of oils and fats.
•Oleochemicals are chemicals derived from natural fats and oils, irrespective of whether they are derived from animal, marine, or vegetable sources. They are analogous to petrochemicals, which are chemicals derived from petroleum.
•Basic oleochemicals form the building blocks of the chemical industry. A downstream chemical industry can be set up when basic oleochemicals are used as raw materials. Soaps, alkanolamides, fatty amines, and esters are few of the derivatives.
