India's sugar production is likely to enter a correction mode in the next season starting October as a likely below-average monsoon rain may hit cane yield, Cogencies reported quoting National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories Managing Director Prakash Naiknavare.

Poor monsoon rains for the third consecutive year may not only hit cane sowing, but also affect cane yield and sugar recovery. Many industry experts expect production to even fall to 27-28 million tonne in the next season, the report said. CLICK HERE TO READ FULL REPORT

According to Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA’s) recent estimates, sugar production in SY19E is expected to fall by around 5.5 per cent YoY to 30.7 mn tn. ISMA’s earlier estimate was 31.5 million tonne of sugar production in SY19E. The downward revision in estimates was mainly due to reduction in yield per hectare.

According to Debashish Mazumdar, an analyst at Edelweiss Broking, Indian sugar sector has been known for its cyclical nature and volatility. However, recent initiatives undertaken by the Indian government is expected to address the problems of the sector. Minimum support price (MSP) has been declared, which will offer a floor to sugar prices in surplus scenario and keep profitability of the sector intact.

Incentives have been declared to encourage exports and help reduce oversupply, thereby supporting prices further. Further, the government has attempted to create right environment to encourage higher ethanol production and blending. Hence, we believe the dynamics of the sector are set to change in a structural manner, the brokerage firm said in sugar sector update.

Sugar prices in India are expected to rise going forward with production almost matching consumption in SY20E. Moreover, sugar prices have already shown some upward trend due to hike in MSP by the government, it added.
