Outlook of Sugar Industry:
India sugar production is estimated at record level of 330 LMT for the current season and consequently the industry is beset with highest ever inventory. This would continue to put pressure on the sugar prices.
The Central and State Governments have taken several proactive measures in the recent past including fixation of MSP, soft loans for cane price payments and setting up of ethanol plants, Bio-fuel policy, production subsidy and export subsidy etc., which have helped the industry to wriggle out of the grim situation. Considering the level of inventory, the Government would need to continue to incentivise B heavy molasses ethanol prices, export incentives and fixation of rational cane prices.
