Insight by Nature

The conventional segment is expected to hold a significant share in the global palm oil market. Traditional palm oil is grown using fertilizers and pesticides, which can cause soil damage and the buildup of pesticide impurities. Increasing cultivation with the help of chemical pesticides by small and medium market players is expected to contribute to the segment growth.

Insight by End-Use
