Leading palm oil producers

Palm oil grows mainly in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Indonesia and Malaysia are the main palm oil producers, followed by Thailand, Colombia, and Nigeria. Unsurprisingly, Indonesia and Malaysia have the largest certified area planted with palm trees. In 2017, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified area planted with palm trees in Indonesia reached 1.7 million hectares, up from 1.54 million hectares in 2016.

Import volume of palm oil has increased worldwide over the past few years. According to the World Bank, in 2017, the average price for palm oil stood at 649 nominal U.S. dollars per metric ton. It is expected to rise to about 744 nominal U.S. dollars per metric ton by 2025.
