NEW DELHI, 27 April 2020: Indian sugar production in mills across the country have recorded a downfall of about 20% to 247.80 lac tons as on 15 April 2020, as compared to 311.75 lac tons sugar produced as on the same period last year.  

This is about 64 lac tons less than 311.75 lac tons produced at the same time last year (i.e. about 20% less than last year). 

However, as compared to 172 sugar mills that were still crushing sugarcane on 15th April 2019 last year, only 139 sugar mills were crushing sugarcane on 15th April 2020 this year. 

Sugar companies decides to make hand sanitizers

A majority of sugar companies decided to make hand sanitizers to supply to hospitals etc. by using a part of the ethanol/ENA production, thereby ensuring that India does not face any shortage of good quality hand sanitizers across the country. 

Some of them are supplying the sanitizers at cost price or even free of cost. With the State Excise department and State Drug Controllers giving full cooperation, this new segment of production of hand sanitizers has been successfully launched very quickly by most of the sugar companies very fast. 

Sugar production in Uttar Pradesh increased to 108.25 lac tons 

In U.P., sugar mills have produced 108.25 lac tons of sugar till 15 April 2020, as compared to 105.55 lac tons produced at the same time in the last season. 

Out of 119 sugar mills, 21 sugar mills have stopped crushing operations and 98 were in operations this year on 15th April 2020, compared to 103 mills that were in operation last year on the same date.

It is learnt that several gur /khandsari manufacturing units in the State have closed their operations, thereby indirectly increasing the cane availability to the sugar mills for crushing in the current season by a few lakh tons of sugarcane. 

Maharashtra sugar output down to 60.12 lac tons

In Maharashtra, sugar production till 15th April 2020 was 60.12 lac tons, compared with 106.71 lac tons produced last year same period, almost 46.6 lakh tons less than last year.

In the current 2019-20 SS, 136 mills have already closed their crushing operations in the State and only 10 sugar mills are operating. On the corresponding date in last season 6 mills were in operation in the State, who went on to add 0.49 lakh tons of sugar production last year. 

Karnataka sugar mills produces 33.82 lac tons

In case of Karnataka, till 15th April, 2020, 63 sugar mills have produced 33.82 lac tons of sugar.  All the mills have closed their operations in the State.

During the corresponding period last year, 67 sugar mills had produced 43.20 lac tons sugar.  Of the 67 sugar mills, 66 had ended their operations and 1 mill was in operation as on 15th April 2019, last year. In the special season last year from July,2019, 1.05 lakh tons of sugar was made. 

Sugar production in Tamil Nadu touches 4.95 lac tons

In case of Tamil Nadu, out of 24 sugar mills which operated this season, 16 sugar mills have ended their crushing, though some might operate in the special season later in the year.

Till 15th April 2020, sugar production in the State was 4.95 lac tons, compared with 6.85 lac tons produced by 32 sugar mills on the corresponding date last year. 

Of the 32 sugar mills, 17 mills had ended their operations and 15 mills were in operation as on 15th April 2019, last year. In the special season last year, Tamil Nadu mills had made 2.13 lakh tons of sugar.

Sugar production in Gujarat

Gujarat has produced 8.80 lac tons of sugar till 15th April 2020 with 3 sugar mills in operation.  Last year, 11.19 lac tons of sugar had been produced with 2 mills in operation on the same date. 

Collective sugar output by other states reaches 

The remaining States as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Odisha have collectively produced 31.86 lac tons till 15th April, 2020. 

Sugar sales/dispatches has got affected due to the country wide lockdown and consequent closure of restaurants, malls, movie halls, etc., which in turn has impacted the demand for sugar sweetened products like ice cream, beverages, juices, confectionaries, sweets etc.

It is generally expected that the domestic pipeline, which usually holds 10-15 lakh tons of sugar, has dried up during the lockdown, when sugar in the pipeline got used up. Hence, as soon as the lockdown is lifted, there can be an increase in sugar demand, especially from the bulk consumers when their operations start resuming. 

Sudden drop in sugar prices affected exports

The exports have been affected due to sudden drop in global sugar prices, but the recent depreciation of rupee is giving some relief to the exporters.

With fresh reallocations being made by the Ministry of Food in April, 2020, of the MAEQ export quotas from the mills who are not exporting, to mills which still want to export, more sugar will thereafter be on offer for exports.

With Indonesia opening up its market for Indian sugar, including giving the preferential lower import duty to India (along with Thailand and Australia), Indian sugar will be in very high demand in Indonesia. 

Major portion of import demand of Indonesia will come to India

About 80-85% of sugar imports by Indonesia are from Thailand. There has been a massive drop in sugar production by 6.5 million tons in Thailand in current season over last year. That is expected to further drop by another 1 million ton next year.

Therefore, a major portion of the unmet import demand of Indonesia will come to India, which can see a spurt from June-July and may continue for another year or so.

Already, sugar is getting exported to Indonesia over the last few weeks. Fall in exports during the lockdown will be therefore partially or largely get compensated by the extra sales/exports to Indonesia. 

There were some initial problems in ethanol off-take in the initial period of the lockdown, especially when several depots of OMCs were unable to take further ethanol supplies because of drop in petrol consumption.

However, with some fast response from the OMCs and its senior officials, ethanol supplies have been shifted to other States and depots, where there were hardly or nil any supplies therein. 

So ethanol has now started going to newer depots in Jharkhand, Bengal, MP, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, AP, Telangana and Kerala. Efforts are being explored to see if ethanol can be sent to Odisha and Assam too. The ethanol supplies/offtake has improved and it is expected that with newer depots taking ethanol, there will be adequate offtake as per contracts.
