The oleochemicals industry is witnessing an astonishing growth globally. The key driving force for this phenomenal growth is its reliance on sustainable chemicals. The demand for oleochemicals is expected to increase more and more as the movement for environmentally friendly products progresses and the cost of oil continues to rise steadily. In Indonesia, oleochemical exports are expected to rise for the third year in a row due to higher demand for cleaning and healthcare products during the pandemic. Will this strong demand for sustainable materials prompt renew interest in Oleochemicals investment and expansion?

China’s recent “dual control of energy consumption” policy has a significant impact on manufacturing companies, especially in manufacturing hubs of Guangdong, Anhui, Zhejiang and Jiangsu, forcing factories to limit power usage or pause production. In addition, rising freight rates and continued port congestion in major ports of China, Vietnam to USA are disrupting supply chain globally. How soon will the situation improve?
