Uzbekistan’s Emerging Market Potential – An Opportunity for Palm Oil
by Faisal Iqbal
Uzbekistan is emerging as the leading consumer of oils and fats in the Central Asian Region.

Total consumption of oils and fats in Uzbekistan currently stands at approximately 556,000 MT, out of which 52% is met with locally produced oils and fats and 48% is met with imports. The edible oil industry is dominated by cottonseed oil which is grown locally and sunflower oils which is imported from Russia and other neighbouring countries. Cottonseed oil is the largest oilseed crop of Uzbekistan with a share of approximately 50% in the total consumption of oils and fats.

However, the production of cottonseed in Uzbekistan is declining due to a government policy of shifting focus from the textile industry. The reduction in supply of cottonseed oil and increase in overall consumption would create a wider gap in supply and demand which would be met by imports.
