What factors may boost Sugar Ethanol companies?

The sugar sector is highly cyclical in nature and follows a 3-5 year cycle. Prices are greatly affected by demand and supply of the raw materials. The diagram below represents the cycle in supply and demand of sugar which affects the stock prices.

Demand & Supply cycle of sugar

sugar demand supply cycle
  • When the production is more than the consumption, it results in sugar surplus.
  • Surplus production results in lower price offering by the market. Profitability of sugar producing companies get a hit and their stock price declines.
  • Companies lower their production amid low price and reduced profitability.
  • Sugar supply in the market declines as producers diminish production.
  • Shortage of supply leads to rise in sugar price.
  • Rise in price motivates farmers to shift to sugarcane from other crops as the high sugar price may make them more returns.
  • Since it’s easier to acquire raw material, sugar companies accelerate their production.
  • And again, there is a surplus in the market.

What will change after rise in demand for ethanol?

This cycle may now experience a shift when the companies start to ramp up their ethanol production. This will bring shorter periods of excess sugar in the market as companies can turn their extra production to ethanol.
