Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Palm Methyl Ester for Bio-fuel, Food, Lubricants, Surfactants, Agriculture, Solvents, Polymers, Metal Working Fluids and Others: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2015 – 2021”. According to the report, global demand for palm methyl ester market was valued at over USD 4.56 billion in 2015, is expected to reach above USD 6.45 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of slightly above 5.10% between 2016 and 2021.
Palm methyl ester is aliphatic organic esters derived from palm oil. Palm oil is first cut down to methyl ester with methanol as a catalyst. As it is not possible to use palm oil directly owing to its high viscosity, they are converted to palm methyl esters. Palm methyl ester is the base material for bio fuels and can be used as lubricants in the automotive sector.
