Sugar Processing Industry Procurement Intelligence
Brazil has been the leading sugarcane producer globally for the last two decades. However, since the beginning of 2019, sugarcane production in the country has decreased by approximately 5%. This can be attributed to the unfavorably dry weather and high incidence of fire outbreaks in the fields. In addition, steady grain prices have encouraged the shift of marginal sugarcane areas to soybeans and corn. This sugar production trend continued due to Covid-19 in 2020. All these issues with sugar production in Brazil help India to reduce the production gap with Brazil, capturing several markets that were previously dominated by Brazil. For instance, Indonesia used to import more than 90% of its sugar from Brazil. However, the country shifted its sourcing destination from Brazil to India due to the pandemic.
The Indian government has taken numerous initiatives to improve sugarcane production in the country. For instance, the government has announced an incentive for sugar mills in the form of an additional domestic sales quota to those that export sugar and divert the commodity toward ethanol making in the new 2021-22 season starting October. The government has also urged sugar mills to take advantage of firm global sugar prices and plan the export of raw sugar during this new season (October-September). Moreover, the Indian government is planning to invest approximately USD 5 billion over the next few years to increase ethanol production by 80%.

Should Cost Analysis
Component wise cost break down for better negotiation for the client, highlights the key cost drivers in the market with future price fluctuation for different materials (e.g.: steel, aluminum, etc.) used in the production process.
In the sugar processing category intelligence study, we have estimated the pricing for the key cost components. Feedstock costs are the largest cost component of sugar processing. They account for more than 45% of the overall sugar processing cost. Sugarcane and sugar beet are the main feedstock used for sugar processing. Sugarcane is highly preferred globally owing to its easy availability and low processing cost. Meanwhile, Brazil is the largest sugarcane producer. Hence, sugarcane price fluctuations in Brazil play an important role in determining the sugar processing costs. Sugar production in Brazil witnessed a decline in 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and drier weather conditions. This also resulted in a steep increase in price in 2021. The price is likely to decline in 2022 and increase steadily until 2025.
Offering cost transparency for different products / services procured by the client. A typical report involves 2-3 case scenarios helping clients to select the best suited engagement with the supplier.
The type of feedstock is one of the most important aspects while analyzing rate benchmarking of sugar processing. In our research, we have analyzed the weight and price of sugarcane and sugar beet to produce 1 kg of sugar. We found that using sugarcane instead of sugar beet is 50% more cost-efficient. However, the volume of sugar beet required to process 1kg sugar is 38% less than sugarcane.
