Key Market Trends

Rise In The Price Of White Sugar Is Boosting The Demand For Starch Sugar As Cheaper Alternative Of Sweetener

China’s sugar price increased significantly from USD 821 per metric ton in January 2016 to USD 1,003 per metric ton in December 2016. In 2017, the price remained on a high level, fluctuating around USD 960 per metric ton. Thus, this indicates the rising price of white sugar in the country. Furthermore, the rising sugar price is corelated with the higher production costs in the middle kingdom, caused by sugarcane prices. Sugar manufacturers, who purchase sugarcane at a price lower than the pre-set price, have to compensate growers for the price difference. Meanwhile, the sugarcane procurement price is correlated to the pre-set tax-included price of sugar. If the actual sugar price is significantly higher than the pre-set price, the actual sugarcane procurement price should also be higher than the pre-set price. Furthermore, due to higher costs of energy consumption, environmental protection, and stuffing, the actual sugar production costs in 2017-2018 was higher than the figure in 2016-2017.
