Research and Markets: China Sugar Industry Report, 2012-2014

In 2011, the global sugar output amounted to 160 million tons and was mainly distributed in Brazil, India, the European Union and China. Brazil, the world’s largest sugar producer and exporter, boasted 23.8% of the global sugar output in 2011.

As one of the major producers and consumers of sugar, China ranked the global No. 3 and No. 2 in sugar output and consumption respectively in 2011. Sugarcane serves as principal raw material for sugar production and contributes more than 90% to the sugar output. In 2011, the output of China’s sugar grew by 5.8% YoY to 11.7 million tons. The main producing areas of sugar are Guangxi, Yunnan and Guangdong which together account for about 85% of the country’s total output.

The rising living standards of Chinese residents and the rapid progress of sugar-consuming industries such as food and beverage sectors have empowered the sugar consumption in China to stay at approximately 14 million tons in recent years. Due to the fact that the sugar output failed to meet the demand, in 2011 China imported 2.9 million tons of sugar, up 65.3% year-on-year.
