Global Sugar Processing Market Size, Status and Forecast 2027


Sugar Processing Category Intelligence

Brazil has been the leading sugarcane producer globally for the last two decades. However, since the beginning of 2019, sugarcane production in the country has decreased by approximately 5%. This can be attributed to the unfavorably dry weather and high incidence of fire outbreaks in the fields. In addition, steady grain prices have encouraged the shift of marginal sugarcane areas to soybeans and corn. This sugar production trend continued due to Covid-19 in 2020. All these issues with sugar production in Brazil help India to reduce the production gap with Brazil, capturing several markets that were previously dominated by Brazil. For instance, Indonesia used to import more than 90% of its sugar from Brazil. However, the country shifted its sourcing destination from Brazil to India due to the pandemic.

The Indian government has taken numerous initiatives to improve sugarcane production in the country. For instance, the government has announced an incentive for sugar mills in the form of an additional domestic sales quota to those that export sugar and divert the commodity toward ethanol making in the new 2021-22 season starting October. The government has also urged sugar mills to take advantage of firm global sugar prices and plan the export of raw sugar during this new season (October-September). Moreover, the Indian government is planning to invest approximately USD 5 billion over the next few years to increase ethanol production by 80%.
