Getting sweeter: Increased global demand for sugar will boost industry trade and revenue

During the current five-year period, the Global Sugar Manufacturing industry has had to contend with unstable production and price levels. Adverse weather conditions and increasing diversion of sugar stocks to ethanol production reduced the production of sugar, inflating the world price of sugar. This benefited the industry until 2012, when prices crashed due to high global production and healthy stocks-to-use ratio. Prices continued to decrease throughout the period, pushing revenue down. In the next five years, the industry is expected to increase due to rising demand for renewable energies, growing global sugar consumption and government policies.
