Malaysia Agribusiness Q4 2018

Malaysia Agribusiness Q4 2018

Key View:

Malaysia's agribusiness sector is experiencing challenging times as the palm oil industry - its most emblematic sector - isundermined by low prices and growing structural challenges, in particular significant labour shortages. Sugar manufacturers are alsogoing through challenges amid the ongoing liberalisation of the sector. Established players in both industries are looking at newrevenue opportunities, the palm oil sector at moving further downstream and the sugar sector at expanding exports in light oflacklustre domestic trends. The cocoa manufacturing industry is undergoing a revival, with grindings on the rise, but local cocoabean production will not recover in the coming years. The medium-term outlook for Malaysia is brighter amid strong growthprospects in the poultry sector and opportunities for value-added palm-based oleochemical exports. Malaysia will have to remainahead of its biggest competitor, Indonesia, if its agribusiness sector is to stay afloat.
