In the season-2015/16, the general processing capacities of sunflower seed in the country totaled 15.5 mln tonnes. In the current MY, Ukraine still continues enlarging the capacities which can increase by 18.7%, according to preliminary forecasts. In the first half of the season-2016/17, the rating of large-scale companies-processors of sunflower seed in Ukraine somewhat changed, due to modernization of several existing enterprises.

Also, it is worth noting that most plants worked at almost full capacity, due to the record harvest volumes of the major oilseed crop (14.1 mln tonnes). Despite rather high cost of raw materials and the unfavourable price environment of sunflower oil market in the first half of the current season, market operators reported about almost full loading of oilseed processing enterprises with raw materials.

In the current article, we focus on the rating of the largest companies-processors of sunflower in Ukraine by the available production capacities in their plants.

Prospects and expectations

The production capacities for processing of sunflower seed in Ukraine continue steadily increasing. In the current season, the general annual processing capacities of sunflower seed in Ukraine totals nearly 18.4 mln tonnes, against 15.5 mln tonnes last year (APK-Inform estimations), due to modernization of the existing plants and construction of new ones.

 

 

According to APK-Inform analysts, in the new season the general processing capacities in the country will break another record and exceed 20 mln tonnes per year. So, in the beginning of 2017/18 MY the company Agroliga plans to build a new oil extraction plant in Kharkiv oblast with the monthly processing capacities at 10 thsd tonnes of sunflower seed.

It is worth noting that in the current season PJSC Nizhynsky fat-and-oil complex increased its processing capacities of sunflower to 500 tonnes/day, and continues building the first line of a new oil extraction plant at 1`000 tonnes/day, which is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2017/18 MY.

At the same time, many market participants expect for reduction of sunflower seed areas in the season-2017/18, and loading rates of the production capacities may significantly reduce. Such situation will likely have a positive impact on the market of sunflower seed, and oilseed producers will receive more favourable prices.
