Future Prospects of the Indonesian Palm Oil Industry
Although international turmoil has resulted in a significant decline of the global palm oil price (and made the government introduce historically low export duties in 2013), the palm oil business in Indonesia is promising - on the long term - due to a number of reasons:
• Big profit margins, while the product is simple to produce.
• Large and increasing international demand.
• Crude palm oil (CPO) production costs in Indonesia are the lowest worldwide.
• Higher rates of productivity compared to other edible oil products.
• Bio-fuel is expected to increase its significance at the expense of expensive gasoline.
What are matters that hamper development of Indonesia's palm oil industry:
• Awareness of the need for more environment-friendly policies.
• Land disputes with local communities due to a lack of clarity regarding land ownership.
• Legal and regulatory uncertainty.
• High logistics cost due to the lack of quality and quantity of infrastructure.
