United States holds the Largest Market Share

According to the USDA report, the United States is the leading producer of soybean oil after China. During 2018-2019, the country produced 10,975 thousand metric ton of soybean oil, from which 881 thousand metric ton was exported to other regions. Moreover, domestic consumption was led by the strong demand for soybean oil for fuel applications, thereby, accounting 10,659 thousand metric ton, in terms of consumption value. Thus, this restricted the export value of the product. Furthermore, in United States, the consumption of palm oil is low. However, manufacturers are investing in increasing the application in the country, owing to its lower price and wide application in the food and personal care segments.
