Refined sunoil market in Ukraine: Untapped capacity


Unchangeably holding the top position among world sunoil exporters, Ukraine looks for more profitable fat-an-oil segments. Refined sunoil exports have increased more than two and a half times over the last five years, to a record 446 KMT in MY 2016/17.

The key driver of the rise in shipments was narrowing margins of crude sunoil production and exports and the need to find more effective business solutions. Fat-and-oil plants overcame the 2013-2015 crisis and increased refined sunoil output by 2016. At the same time, domestic consumption of this product continued shrinking.

In view of the saturation of the domestic market of refined sunoil, the necessity has naturally arisen to expand its end markets by the means of foreign sales. Export statistics of the recent years confirm that exporters successfully accomplish the tasks they face.

In the opinion of UkrAgroConsult, Ukrainian fat-and-oil plants will build up production of refined sunoil in the medium-term outlook (the coming 3-5 years). This will make possible for Ukraine to become the largest exporter of not only crude sunoil but also of refined one.
