Worldwide Sugar Industry News Highlighted In New Periodical by Informa Agra Now Available at

12 Nov 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Since the 2009/2010 cycle the world’s sugar production has grown by around 9%, and it is currently estimated at more than 179 million tons.  In the 2009/2010 season, the annual growth rate of sugar consumption declined to nearly 0.6% on account of the skyrocketing prices for the product and the consequent drop in demand. In the season (2012/2013), the world’s total sugar production continues to exceed consumption by 10 million tons.

Sustainable growth in the worldwide sugar market is driven by the favourable weather conditions as well as producers’ increased investments in their beet, milling and cane production capacities. At present, the global demand for sugar follows an upward trend due to wider product availability and a decrease in prices. The intensifying competition and enhanced productivity amid surging input costs and lower sugar prices compared to production costs in many corners of the globe make up some of the major challenges for the sugar industry today.

New periodical “International Sugar Journal” drawn up by Informa Agra offers an insightful guide to the global sugar sector by covering all the sectors of the industry’s value chain in detail.

The journal enriches one’s knowledge of the world sugar industry by highlighting the most recent news and describing the main trends happening in the world of science and technology. The periodical provides with a clear understanding of the actual market state, presents an extensive monthly market overview, besides giving a comprehensive snapshot of the latest news about bio-fuels and bio-based products. The journal keeps track of the changes occurring in the global sugar marketplace, thus assisting in planning effective business strategies and taking informed business decisions.
