Continued volatility for sugar markets?


Recent years have seen sugar markets experience a large global sugar deficit followed by a large surplus. How the future looks has left analysts divided. On the supply-side, Thailand has experienced poor crop yields but predict a 40% increase in production for the 2021-22 marketing season. This could cover the incoming shortage of Brazilian sugar for export due to the country’s inclement weather conditions and constrained vessel options.

Questions still remain about how India will smooth out its supply chain woes to provide sugar for the export market due to the pandemic, as well as how demand centers will continue to alter as consumers become more health conscious.

Join us to gain key insights on; sugar markets outlooks, discussions on crop yields, trade flows, trading, securing supply chains, demand centers with a special focus on Indonesia and China, and more!
