The Malaysian palm kernel expeller (PKE) competes with various oilmeals in the world market, particularly as an animal feed. It has a competitive advantage over other oilmeals due to its consistent supply and competitive price. However, increasing production and export of other oilmeals coupled with changes in meat preferences worldwide are affecting the competitiveness of Malaysian PKE. Future development in the world livestock market will play a pivotal role in spearheading the future competitiveness of the Malaysian PKE.
