OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2011-2020 © OECD/FAO 2011
The world sugar marketplace continues to experience considerable value volatility. The world indicator value for uncooked sugar seen a succession of peaks and downwards corrections this season before leaping to a 30-year high of UNITED STATES DOLLAR 36. 08 cts/lb (USD 795. 4/t) in Feb 2011. Marketplace fundamentals driving a car volatile rates were significant global glucose deficits in the previous two periods and unfavorable weather in many countries that reduced the size of the predicted rebound in production to raised prices (Figure 6. 1). World glucose stocks, which in turn had already been drawn straight down, fell to their lowest level in 20 years in 2010-11, supporting higher along with more unstable market prices. International sugar prices are required to ease back over the remainder of 2011 and into 2011/12, as creation responds all over the world to the latest high rates and the global balance goes into a bigger surplus which allows the start of inventory rebuilding.
The natural sugar cost (Intercontinental Exchange No . 10 spot, balloon, Caribbean ports) in nominal terms is projected for nearly CHF 408/t (USD 18. 5 c/lb. ) in 2020-21. This is below the historical peak in the beginning of the Perspective, but prices are expected to stay on a bigger plateau and average larger in actual terms (when adjusted to get inflation) above the projection period, when compared with the final decade. White-colored sugar prices (Euronet, Liffe, Contract Zero, 407, London) follow a related pattern and therefore are projected to get to USD 508/t (USD 23cts/lb. ) in 2020-21, while using white sweets premium narrowing with larger export amounts to common above USD 90/t over the coming ten years (Figure 6. 2). Brazil's sugar production, as one of the cheapest sugar makers with extensive capacity to expand sugar walking cane area over a large scale, along with the projected development in ethanol production, will probably be key determinants of global sugar production, which is projected to get to over 209 Mt in 2020-21. Govt policies that intervene in sugar marketplaces, and development cycles in some major walking cane producing countries of Asia, will carry on and influence community sugar creation and selling price volatility above the longer term. Community sugar consumption is anticipated to grow for a lower typical rate above the longer term reacting to higher rates to reach 207 Mt in 2020-21. Shares should restore in the around term, but the stocks-to-use percentage is anticipated to average reduce over the approaching decade than in the previous a decade, providing support for higher prices (Figure 6. 3).
