Palm oil consumption

Global consumption rose from 14.6 million tons in 1995 to 61.1 million tons in 2015, ­making it the most consumed oil in the world. The main consumers of palm oil are China, India, ­Indonesia and the European Union. India, China and the EU do not produce crude palm oil and their demand is ­entirely met by imports. In 2015, India, China and the EU ­accounted for 47.9 per cent of global imports.
