Key Market Trends

Increased Sugarcane Production

Growing population, increasing disposable income, and changes in cultural habits are driving sugar consumption in this region. The production of cane sugar is increasing due to the demand from various industries, such as beverages, dairy, bakery, and confectionery. In dairy products, functional properties of sugar include mouthfeel, taste, reduction of freezing point, and water-binding. Sugar is also a key component of the firmness of dairy products, impacting the flow and thermal characteristics (for example, viscosity, osmolality, water mobility, and freezing point depression) during and after processing. Intakes of soft drinks, colas, other sweetened carbonated beverages, and fruit drinks with added sugar have increased dramatically, especially among youth.

Increased Utilization in Bakery and Confectionery

The bakery and confectionery sector witnessed an upsurge trend in the usage of sugar owing to the properties it imparts in the finished products. Sugar is an important contributor to flavor by interacting with other ingredients. Depending on the food application, sugar has the unique ability to heighten flavor or depress the perception of other flavors. It is widely utilized due to the multi-functionalities, such as extending the shelf life of bakery products, slowing moisture loss, and preventing staleness in baked goods. The demand for sugar confectionery is also increasing owing to the growth of the cane sugar market as it is used as the primary ingredient and offers a unique flavor.
