This new service Sugar Production Costs - Forecasts - How Technical Performance and Macroeconomics Drive Costs focuses on 5 key benchmark sugar industries - Australia, Brazil, Thailand & India cane and France beet.

It analyses the connection between technical performance, input prices and exchange rates and production costs and presents production cost forecasts to 2025 for each industry. The central feature of the service is a new interactive forecasting model designed to allow you to change assumptions and generate new results to answer: What is the outlook for longer-term cost competitiveness?

Interactive Cost Model

This new interactive model allows you to change inputs for all of the key drivers of costs allowing you to generate new cost forecasts for each industry. Variables that can be changed include:
  • Cane yields
  • Tonnes cane/beet to tonnes sugar
  • Net operating days
  • Level of mechanisation – planting, cultivation and harvesting
  • Mechanical harvester productivity
  • Exchange rates 
  • Oil prices driving diesel, fertiliser and capital goods prices
  • Wage inflation 


You will receive:
