Palm Methyl Ester Derivative Market Trends




  • Growing demand for biofuel represents one of the major factors in the global market growth.




The sustainability of the supply of fuels has attracted significant attention from the international community due to the increased use in numerous industries, the depletion of petroleum resources, and the volatility of crude oil market prices. The rising emissions of dangerous pollutants and greenhouse gases have also led to environmental issues due to various petrochemicals. Thus, it is essential to use clean energy sources, including biofuel. In addition to being safe, it has several advantages over petro-fuel, including being non-toxic, biodegradable, and has less air pollution per unit of net energy produced.


Biofuels are produced from renewable natural resources and are practical substitutes for fossil fuels. Palm-based biofuel is widely used in internal combustion engines without any modification needed for engines. Generally, it is referred to as methyl esters made from palm oil by the "transesterification" process. Palm methyl ester has less soot and sulfur than traditional petroleum-based biofuels, which results in more environmentally friendly vehicle emissions. Palm methyl esters can be added with rapeseed oil-based or soybean oil-based fuel to achieve a better cetane index and improved oxidation stability properties.


According to the International Energy Agency, in comparison to 2021, the demand for biofuels is predicted to increase by 6%, or 9 100 MLPY, in 2022. Due to favorable policies in the United States and Europe, renewable diesel accounts for the largest share in 2021. Brazil and India's demand increases are supported by blending mandates and financial incentives, and Indonesia's 30% biodiesel blending mandate encourages the usage of the fuel there.


The global biofuel demand is expected to reach 35 000 MLPY or 20% over 2022-2027 according to IEA in the main-case forecast. In emerging economies, biofuel is being opted to reduce oil imports and increase the use of domestic resources to boost the local economy. In developed nations, there is a surge in the increase of biofuel demand to reduce GHG emissions with supportive government policies. Thus, the growing demand for biofuel will eventually expand the palm methyl ester derivative market size during the forecast period.


However, there have been significant advances in palm methyl ester derivative demand across end-use industries. The rise in demand for palm methyl ester derivatives is likely to anticipate the growth of palm methyl ester derivative market revenue during the forecast period.Growing demand for biofuel represents one of the major factors in the global market growthPalm Methyl Ester Derivative Market Segment Insights


Product Type Insights


The palm methyl ester derivative market segmentation, based on product, includes methyl caprylate, methyl laurate, methyl myristate, methyl palmitate, methyl stearate, methyl oleate, and methyl linoleate. The methyl oleate held the majority share in 2021, concerning the Palm Methyl Ester Derivative Market revenue. This is primarily owing to the surge in demand for biodiesels globally will eventually raise the demand for methyl oleate, thereby expanding the palm methyl ester derivative industry. For instance, as per International Energy Agency, global biodiesel production is around 45,712 million liters per annum in 2021 and it is expected to expand by 11,288 million liters per annum by 2027. The growing adoption of sustainable products owing to reduce carbon emission is accelerating the growth of methyl oleate palm methyl ester derivatives during the forecast period.


Palm Methyl Ester Derivative Application Insights


The market, based on application, is segmented into soap and detergent, personal care and cosmetics, lubricants, and additives, biofuel, textile treatments, paints and coatings, agriculture, and others. The personal care and cosmetics segment dominated the palm methyl ester derivative industry in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This is due to the rapid demand for ester-based surfactants in the personal care and cosmetics industry. According to the Cosmetic Europe Association, the European cosmetics and personal care industry is valued at €80 billion (USD 85.95 billion) at a retail sales price in 2021, alongside the USA, the largest market for cosmetic products in the world. According to estimates, the cosmetics and personal care sector boosts the European economy each year by at least €29 billion. Cosmetics manufacturing contributes directly €11 billion and indirectly €18 billion through the supplier chain. Hence, the growing application of palm methyl ester derivatives in various end-use industries will positively impact the market.
