The soybean oil market is driven by a confluence of global demand, agricultural production, geopolitical tensions, and evolving consumer preferences. The soybean oil market is primarily propelled by the expanding use of soybean oil in various industries such as food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and biodiesel production. Additionally, agricultural production levels significantly impact market dynamics, with fluctuations in crop yields due to weather conditions, pest infestations, and technological advancements affecting supply. Moreover, geopolitical tensions, trade policies, and currency fluctuations exert considerable influence on market sentiment and pricing. Furthermore, shifting consumer preferences toward healthier alternatives and sustainable sourcing practices also contribute to the market’s direction, as seen in the growing demand for non-GMO and organic soybean oil products.

The global soybean oil market size reached 61.2 million Tons in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 71.9 million Tons, at a projected CAGR of 1.70% during 2023-2032. In the last quarter, several factors have influenced the trajectory of soybean oil prices. Firstly, weather conditions and their impact on crop yields have been a significant determinant. Adverse weather events, such as droughts or excessive rainfall, can disrupt planting schedules and reduce harvest yields, thereby affecting supply levels and driving prices higher. Additionally, macroeconomic factors, including fluctuations in currency exchange rates and shifts in global trade dynamics, have played a crucial role. Trade tensions between major soybean-producing nations, such as the United States and China, have led to fluctuations in demand and supply patterns, subsequently impacting prices. Furthermore, developments in the renewable energy sector, particularly policies related to biofuel production and consumption mandates, have influenced the demand for soybean oil as a feedstock for biodiesel, thus affecting its pricing dynamics in the market. Overall, the intricate interplay of these factors underscores the volatility and complexity inherent in the soybean oil market, shaping its pricing trend in the last quarter.

For the whole of 2023’s fourth quarter, North American soybean oil prices followed European patterns. This fall was ascribed to lower worldwide consumption, which resulted from domestic traders having an abundance of stock. The weekend food price index, which experts said was 13.7% lower in 2023 than it was in the previous year, served to emphasize this even more. During the fourth quarter of 2023, the pricing dynamics of soybean oil in the Asia-Pacific area experienced considerable fluctuations. October witnessed a big dip, followed by another decline in December. Prices for soybean oil fell for the whole fourth quarter on the European market.
