Particularly in Indonesia, the commodity traders noticed that even after the expansion of production units, the existent rates were unable to meet the growing interest of consumers, providing room for them to raise their price quotations of RBD palm olein. However, the dynamics were overturned in the last quarter when the inventories surpassed the domestic and overseas procurement rates. The Malaysian market, on the other hand, reverted upwards from this avalanche in the last month of the year, ending the year on an optimistic note.


A surge in demand and a low level of stockpiles guided the RBD palm olein price trend towards an upward trajectory during the third quarter of 2023. There were also several instances in those months when traders noted a slight relief in the inflationary pressure on account of which the consumers were able to raise their spending appetite. On the other hand, the fourth quarter brought several fluctuations as the prices dropped by a great margin in the first month. The rebound of the market in the subsequent months was slow but steady.

North America

In North America, the RBD palm olein prices showcased a similar trend as was observed in the Asian countries, with regional prices rising in the third quarter on account of the inclining cost of operation, global demand, and substantial reduction in inventories.

The majority of inventories started restocking in anticipation of excessive demand from the downstream industries. However, due to a sudden hit in global dynamics, the RBD palm olein prices moved southwards in the initial phase of the fourth quarter and then only improved slightly in the rest of the month.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of RBD Palm Olein is expected to oscillate in the upcoming quarters as the downstream demand and production rates might struggle to find an equilibrium.

RBD Palm Olein Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The first quarter of 2023 witnessed a decline in the prices of RBD palm olein due to a lack of cost support from the bleak trading sentiments and a lack of demand from the domestic sector.

In the second half of this quarter, the trend gained momentum, and prices inclined as end-user industries showcased a positive growth rate. The prices continued to surge till the middle of the second quarter, after which they fell steeply as the demand for cooking oil and its derivatives declined in major RBD palm olein-producing nations.


The consumers in European countries had less faith in the RBD palm olein market, which was evident in their low appetite in the first quarter of 2023. The stock of RBD palm olein was already abundant in the European markets, and further influx from Asian countries only raised the level of inventories. However, the initial months of the second quarter showcased signs of improvement in the RBD palm olein price trend.

The surge in the prices was supported by increased demand for edible oils and overall consumption rates, but the availability of cheap imports and high domestic inventories proved to be a challenge for the RBD palm olein prices in this quarter.

North America

The RBD palm olein prices in North America suffered from weak procurement rates, excess stockpiles, and weak trading sentiments in the initial phase of the first quarter. However, unlike European and Asia-Pacific markets, the prices of RBD palm olein in North America inclined in the second quarter of 2023 mainly because of the ban imposed on imports from major RBD palm olein exporting nations. This ban helped in reducing the level of inventories and, thus, positively influenced the rise in prices of RBD palm olein.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of RBD Palm Olein is expected to fluctuate in the upcoming months as the demand from downstream industries seems to vary from place to place, and volatility in the consumption rates of consumers also presents a challenge for RBD palm olein market.
