    It's a Bitter End for Sugar as Investors Line Up for 2019 Losses

    The one thing that kept the rout from being even deeper: robust demand for ethanol in Brazil, the world’s biggest sugar grower and exporter. Cane millers can turn crops into either sweetener or biofuel. For a lot of 2018, high gasoline prices meant Brazilian processors favored making ethanol, helping to cap the sugar glut.

    Internal feud shakes French sugar group Tereos as markets plunge

    PARIS/LONDON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - French cooperative Tereos, the world's second largest sugar maker, is holding extraordinary elections to its membership council this week which the farmer-owned group hopes will end an internal feud at the debt-laden group already struggling with an industry-wide slump. A sharp fall in sugar prices in the European Union has triggered a crisis in the industry that has also hit rivals such as Suedzucker, Nordzucker and Associated British Foods . For Tereos, the impact of low sugar prices has been particularly harsh due to the company's heavy debt burden and deep exposure to sugar.

    Betting on ethanol, Brazilian mills turn sour on sugar

    A shift to ethanol in the 2018-19 season slashed Brazil's sugar output by 9 million tonnes to a 12-year low and more switching to the biofuel next season could help to wipe out a global surplus weighing on sugar prices. Brazil could also lose its crown as the world's biggest sugar producer to India for the first time in 16 years, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. For Brazilian sugar cane processors, switching to ethanol has proved an attractive trade-off as the increased focus on the biofuel partly shielded mills from a plunge in global sugar prices in September to their lowest since 2008.

    Green Pool raises 2018/19 global sugar surplus forecast

    Analyst Green Pool said on Wednesday it had raised its forecast for an anticipated global sugar surplus in the 2018/19 season to 3.60 million tonnes, raw value, from a previous projection of 3.22 million. "While we revised production slightly downwards, this iteration of the global balance also sees a small downwards adjustment to global consumption," the analyst said in a report. Green Pool said the most contentious issue with its numbers was likely to be its estimate for Indian production which it left unchanged at 34.1 million tonnes, tel quel.

    Global sugar production to fall, but Indian output to rise: USDA

    The U.S. government on Tuesday forecast world sugar production will fall about 9 million tonnes in 2018/19 to 185.9 million tonnes, while global consumption swells to new records. In its biannual report https://bit.ly/2rwtFEb, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said the decline in global production was primarily due to Brazil, where yields have been lower and where an increasing share of sugarcane is being diverted to ethanol production. Global consumption is expected to rise to 176.8 million tonnes from 174 million tonnes in 2017/18.

    ISO sees smaller global sugar surplus as output falls

    The International Sugar Organization on Thursday sharply reduced its forecast for an expected global sugar surplus for the 2018/19 season, cutting production outlooks for Brazil, India, Pakistan and the European Union. The inter-governmental body, in a quarterly report, forecast there would be a global surplus of 2.17 million tonnes in 2018/19 (October/September), down from a previous projection of a 6.75 million tonne surplus issued in August. The ISO also cut its estimate for the size of the surplus in 2017/18 to 7.28 million tonnes from 8.60 million.

    India sugar output to sour further on scanty rains: trade official

    India is likely to produce 7.4 percent less sugar than forecast earlier as mills are reporting a sharp drop in sugar cane yields due to a drought and white grub infestations in key growing areas, a senior industry official told Reuters. The drop will reduce exports from the world's second-biggest sugar producer and likely help support global prices that have fallen 17 percent so far in 2018. "Almost all mills have started operations and are reporting lower cane yields," said B.B. Thombare, president of the Western India Sugar Mills Association.

    Marex Spectron sees small global sugar deficit in 2018/19

    Commodity broker Marex Spectron has revised its forecast for the 2018/19 global sugar balance, switching its outlook to a small deficit due to expectations for lower output from Brazil, India, Thailand and the European Union. Marex Spectron pegged the shift on expectations for lower output in countries such as Brazil, India, Thailand as well as the EU as unfavourable weather and more focus on ethanol dent sugar production. Marex Spectron said early signs also point to a potential deficit in the 2019/20 season, as low prices inspire farmers to switch away from cane or beet.
