Palm rises more than 1% on global edible oil supply concerns

  • Slow output growth to limit Malaysia's stockpile until Q3
  • End-July stocks seen up 3.4%, output 5% higher
13 Jul 2021

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian palm oil futures advanced on Tuesday, supported by lingering concerns over tight supply of palm and rival edible oils amid hopes of an improvement in export shipments.

The benchmark palm oil contract for September delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange rose 59 ringgit, or 1.53%, to 3,922 ringgit ($936.71) a tonne by the midday break.

Data released by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board on Monday showed end-June inventories rose by 2.8% to a nine-month high of 1.61 million tonnes, meeting the lower end of expectations.

However, inventories were 15% lower than the year-ago level, and the tightness will likely remain until the third quarter due to slow output growth, MIDF Research said in a note.

End-July stockpile is projected to rise 3.4% month-on-month to 1.67 million tonnes, with production rising by 5% and exports up by 2%, Ivy Ng, regional head of plantations research at CGS-CIMB Research, said in a note.

Palm oil falls ahead of Indonesia's export levy reduction, export data

Prices will remain firm in the range of 3,400-4,000 ringgit a tonne amid low global edible oil inventories and palm's wide discount of $350/tonne against soybean oil, she said.

Inventories in key buyer China are at a three-year low and would spur replenishment activities, while exports to India are expected to rise towards the end of July, Adrian Kok, an equity analyst at Kenanga Investment Bank, said in a note.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture left its U.S. soy production estimate unchanged from June at 4.405 billion bushels. Analysts, who had been expecting a slight decline, said the crop could still suffer from unfavourable weather.

Soyoil prices on the Chicago Board of Trade were up 0.5%, after rising 2% in the previous session. Dalian's most-active soyoil contract rose 0.7%, while its palm oil contract fell 0.4%.

Palm oil is affected by price movements in related oils as they compete for a share in the global vegetable oils market.
