Share Article

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Sugar markets. The world market for Sugar is projected to exceed 177 million metric tons by the year 2015. This is primarily driven by factors such as growing average household income among middle class population and growing prices of alternative sweeteners and corn syrup containing high-fructose that are available in the market. The global sugar consumption pattern shows that there is a fall in sugar consumption level in developed nations, while an increasing trend is witnessed among the developing countries. The trend confirms the fact that with increasing level of income and awareness, consumers tend to prefer alternative foodstuffs that are perceived healthier.

Sugar: A Global Strategic Business Report

Global sugar industry is characterized by high distortion as a result of variable regional trade policies such as, marketing and production control, minimum guaranteed tariff to the farmer, quotas and subsidies, as well as retail prices of sugar as per state regulations. Most of the sugar producing countries enjoys domestic support from their respective government, and thus supply became the key market driver rather than demand.

Asia Pacific and Europe dominate the global sugar consumption market as stated by the new market research report on sugar market. Some of the key factors supporting the global sugar prices include, reforms in government policies leading to fall in production level within the European Union region, positive demand due to high growth in level of income in developing nations including India and China, and diversion of sugar cane production to ethanol production in Brazil.

Key players profiled in the report include American Crystal Sugar Company, Associated British Foods plc., Baotou Huazi Industry Co. Ltd., Cosan Limited, CSR Limited, Dhampur Sugar Mills Limited, Eurosugar S.A.S., Lantic, Inc., Michigan Sugar Company, Midwest Agri-Commodities, Nordzucker AG, Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative, Tongaat-Hulett, and Western Sugar Cooperative, Inc., among others.
