2014-02-24 17:32:02 - Analyzing the Global Oil Crops Industry - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The global oil crops industry expanded by nearly 13% in 2011 and by 2016 the industry is expected to rise by over 40% overall, which indicates a slowdown in the overall growth rate of the industry.
The Asia-Pacific region accounted for almost 65% of the total industry value at the moment and is expected to continue with the same momentum in the future. The oil crops market values the supply (consumption) of agriculture items such as soybeans, oil palm fruit, seed cotton, and rapeseed. The market volumes reflect supply in each country, calculated on the basis of production plus imports minus exports.
Last year, worldwide-traded oil production from crop plants was almost 130 million metric tons (MMT), mostly used as
edible vegetable oil. The proportion of plant oils used for non-edible or industrial purposes has fluctuated as petroleum and coal feed stocks increasingly competed with plant oils as sources of hydrocarbon-based products such as polymers, lubricants, fine chemicals, and fuels.
Oil crops may be used by a range of industries, and this presents a wide variety of potential buyers. They may be processed for use by the food and animal feed industries, as well as in the production of chemicals, paints and bio-fuel. Low switching costs and relatively low product differentiation serve to enhance buyer power and increase the likelihood of new entrants. The main substitutes to oil crops include cereal crops as an alternative for animal feed and bio-fuel production.
Top players in the market are Archer Daniels Midland Company, Bunge Limited, Cargill, Inc. and CHS Inc. Although large co-operative farming companies do exist within many countries, most players within the oil crops market are typically individual farms, rated as small to medium sized businesses.
