USDA ERS: Sugar and Sweeteners Outlook December 2020

Sugar and Sweeteners Outlook December 2019

Domestic Sugar Production Lowered Further, Projected Imports From Mexico Raised for 2019/20

U.S. sugar production for 2019/20 is lowered in the December World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates as both the cane sugar and beet sugar sector saw deteriorating conditions. Imports are raised, with the increase largely coming from imports from Mexico. Projections for total use and domestic deliveries are unchanged from the previous month.

Mexico is projected to export slightly more sugar in 2019/20 than was expected the previous month. There is expected to be a large increase in exports going to the United States rather than other countries, however. Production forecasts are unchanged, although the harvest season has just begun, as Mexico processors work through this season’s drought-affected sugarcane crop.
