According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA),Nigeria consumed 2 million tons in 2021. Today, Nigeria produced just 1.4 million tons of palm oil, and data also shows that from 2012 to 2021, Nigeria imported more than 4.1 million tons aboard. The domestic market is in short supply, resulting in high palm oil prices in Nigeria. From the perspective of the world situation, Indonesia's restrictions on palm oil exports have also caused an increase in international demand for palm oil, which is very likely to lead to an increase in the price of imported palm oil. All in all, developing the palm oil processing industry in Nigeria is a business with large potential in the long run.

3,Nigeria's local government strongly supports the development of the palm oil processing industry

In 2019, the government increased financing to oil palm producers through low-interest loans, aiming to increase domestic production by 700% by 2027. Before that, in order to support local palm oil production, the government will also increase the import tariff on palm oil from the current 35% to 75%. Besides, in the future, the Nepalese government will cooperate with scientific research institutions to distribute high-quality seedlings and agricultural materials to farmers, take multiple measures to expand the palm planting area, and accelerate the development of the palm industry. All in all, taking into account the gap between the market demand and production of palm oil, the government has been working on the development and support of the palm oil industry since 2015, hoping that domestic production can catch up with demand, and eventually the surplus palm oil can be sold overseas.
