Oleochemicals Report

Global economic growth has weakened and crude oil remains relatively cheap, yet natural oleochemical raw materials have persisted with high price points. LMC’s 2016 Oleochemicals Report asks when natural oleochemical prices and margins might recover? And what can the industry do to accelerate recovery?

Widely regarded as the industry benchmark, LMC’s 2016 Oleochemicals Report delivers expert analysis of fatty acid and fatty alcohol supply and demand, trade, prices, ethoxylates, glycerine, policy, market dynamics, capacities, producers, raw materials, forecasts, sustainability and palm certification.

The report’s conclusions provide a firm basis for determining stakeholder strategy and investment along the oleochemical value chain.


The main report is divided into 8 sections:

Section 1 Raw materials: supply, demand and price
Section 2 Sustainability and certification along the palm value chain
Section 3 Capacities and the competitive environment
Section 4 Supply and demand – historical balances and forecasts
Section 5 Government policies and global / regional trade flows
Section 6 Price dynamics and processing margins
Section 7 Glycerine – burden or blessing?
Section 8 The downstream ethoxylate marketplace
