Are days of ‘super-high’ CPO prices gone?

Quick Summary

Indonesia, the world’s biggest shipper of edible oils, announced on May 19 that it would lift the ban on palm oil exports that the Joko Widodo administration had imposed three weeks earlier.

Some experts are predicting even cheaper CPO prices in the second half of 2022 (2H22), although on a full-year basis, the average CPO price is forecast to be above the RM5,000-per-tonne mark.

According to Mohd Nageeb, Russia and Ukraine contribute 80% of the world’s sunflower oil supply.“A shortage of CPO would prolong over the next one to two years, considering that many planters are not using fertilisers at the amount they should.“This is due to the higher fertiliser cost.
