Sugar sector is a cyclical sector and periodically there is a cycle of ups and down in the prices, we can say it commodity cycle.
In India, sugar production follows a three-five year cycle. Higher production leads to increased availability of sugar thereby declining the sugar prices. This leads to lower profitability for the companies and delayed payment to the farmers. As a result of higher sugarcane arrears, the farmers switch to other crops thereby leading to a fall in the area under cultivation for sugar. This then leads to lower production and lower sugar availability, followed by higher sugar prices, higher profitability and lower arrears and thus the cycle continues.
The production of sugar is seasonal. Sugarcane is crushed from October to March.
