Assessment of Malaysia’s Cocoa Industry

Date: 2016-02

“Executive Summary
The global cocoa market was valued at 3,455,622 metric tons in 2013 and is projected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 3% in the period 2014-2019. The world is faced with the challenge of low cocoa supply primarily due to the fragile nature of the crop and weather and political conditions in the producing nations. In 2015, global consumption is expected to have exceeded world cocoa production by 17,000 tons. Cocoa reserves fell 27% year-on year at the end of 2015.
While at present the developed markets are the largest consumers of cocoa, demand is rising from developing markets such as China and India. This coupled with economic recovery in the United States and continued demand from Europe is expected to boost cocoa demand. Niche areas such as cocoa butter based cosmetics and cocoa based alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages are adding to the cocoa demand.
Malaysia is the largest cocoa grinder in Asia and the fifth largest globally, behind Netherlands, Cote d鈥橧voire, Germany and the United States. The country鈥檚 cocoa production has been falling in recent years and the Government is actively providing various incentives to cocoa farmers including good quality inputs and training with an aim of improving production.The country is faced with insufficient production of cocoa beans and hence, relies heavily on imports. Demand outweighs the local cocoa production in Malaysia.
