What’s working for sugar stocks? 

Ethanol blending push and Sugar MSP at Rs 31 per kg remain major triggers behind the recent rally in sugar stocks.

As per Philip Capital, the government’s ethanol blending programme has structurally transformed the sugar sector in India and will help to reduce cyclicality of the industry.

Ethanol blending and Minimum Selling Price (MSP) of sugar for domestic market at Rs 31 per kg has helped the industry despite surplus sugar production, it says.  Domestic sugar prices are close to MSP in Maharashtra at Rs 31-32 per kg while in north states they are c. Rs 34-35 per kg.

The record cane production in the sugar season 2021-22 (October – September 2022) will continue to create surplus sugar production in the short to medium term despite diversion of sugar to ethanol, limiting the sugar price increases in the domestic market, says Philip Capital.

“The production recovery in Brazil and Thailand and Surplus production in India would be sufficient to take care of global demand in the medium term. Ethanol blending of 20% by 2025 and introduction of flex-fuel vehicles will help the Indian sugar industry to balance its sugar surplus in the long term,” it had said in its March 22 report.

On the downside, if it will break 35 levels then 31 is the next critical zone,” said Meena.
