Product Overview

Brazil is, by some distance, the world’s leading producer of sugar, producing nearly 40 million tonnes of raw sugar in 2010. But to keep pace with the forecast growth in domestic and export demand, twice as much sugar and ethanol will have to be produced in Brazil by 2020 as has been produced in recent years.

Analysts say as many as 120 brand new “greenfield” sugar mills, each able to crush about five million tonnes of cane, costing some $55 billion, will need to be built over the coming decade, while a further $23 billion will need to be spent on planting additional hectares of cane.

But with debts currently running at the equivalent of half the industry’s annual turnover, companies are currently in no mood to make the investments needed.

This report examines in depth the roots of the current ‘crisis’ in the Brazilian sugar and ethanol industries, and plots the way forward to probable future prosperity for the sector.

The strengths and weaknesses of the sugar and biofuels industry in Brazil are explored, together with an assessment of the political, financial, commercial and agronomic conditions under which the sector is operating. New developments, such as the rise of the renewable chemical sector and the expansion of power cogeneration at sugar mills, are reviewed in depth.
