India's Palm Oil Imports Expected to Hit 10-Months High

Mumbai (Commodities Control) - Palm oil imports by India probably surged 46% last month as a drop in stockpiles in the world’s biggest buyer prompted refiners and traders to boost purchases.

Inbound shipments rose to 823,000 tons from a month earlier in July as demand from the food services industry grew following the easing of lockdown rules, according to G.G. Patel, managing partner of GGN Research.


That’s the highest since September and compares with 812,805 tons in July 2019. A jump in purchases by India will likely trim stockpiles in top producers Indonesia and Malaysia, potentially further boosting palm oil prices that have advanced more than 20% so far this quarter.


Reserves in Malaysia likely tumbled to a three-year low in July as production shrank and exports surged.


Palm oil consumption by restaurants and hotels suffered in India after the government imposed the world’s most stringent stay-at-home rules in March to curb the spread of the coronavirus among its 1.3 billion people.


The restrictions are gradually being lifted. Soybean oil imports in July are estimated to have increased to 484,000 tons from 331,264 tons a month earlier. Sunflower oil buying fell to 199,000 tons from 268,128 tons.


Edible oil imports probably totaled 1.51 million tons, compared with 1.16 million tons a month earlier.
