Final thoughts:

In 2021, sugar supplies have been surging. The government’s move to accelerate the ethanol-fuel blend requirement from 2030 to 2025 has benefited the whole business.

To put this in context, Brazil produces 17% of the world’s sugar and 30% of the world’s ethanol. India produces 18% of the world’s sugar but only 3% of its ethanol.

With India’s fuel consumption on an upward trend, the sugar sector has enormous potential.
