Our Sugar Industry

Kamuna Management had decided to establish Sugar Mill of 10000 metric tones daily crushing capacity with Cogeneration at Village Dahena, District Shahjahanpur for which work is in progress. Requisite Licence from State Government and Government of India has already being obtained, other legal clearances as Forest, Environment, etc are in progress, there is provision of latest technology in erection of mill along with good green belt and residences.

Presently there are 543 Sugar Mills in India, whereas 124 Sugar Mills are operating in UP out of which 101 are in Private Sector & 23 in Cooperative / Corporate sector. There has been a set back to Sugar production in UP due to delay is SAP (Sugar Cane Price) declaration. In spite of that UP touched 50.7 million tones of Sugar production up to 15th March 2014 and there is slide decline as compared to last year crushing season.

Future Aspects

Starting with the targets for sugarcane and sugar production for the five Year Plans, the highlights the various technical aspects of sugar industry. Future technologies for cane handling, milling, juice treatment, evaporation system & crystallisation etc. have been highlighted. Different uses of bagasse, molasses and press cakes have been recommended giving the economics of the various products to be derived out of these. Methodology has been given for working out with the optimum cost of production, R&D and automation at various process stages, policy issues, pollution control measures, co-generation of power, integrated complex and instrumentation aspects are adequately covered.

  • The sugar industry in India is expected to reach INR 931.9 billion by FY’2019
  • Future Growth of India sugar market is expected to be led by increasing sugarcane yield, rising demand of sugar by the consumers and increasing sugar recovery rate.

The sugar industry in India has witnessed a growth in recent years on account of rising number of sugar factories in the country as well as the increasing sugarcane yield in the country. The surge in growth of the industry is majorly originated from the rising sugar demand by the consumers as well as the institutional sector and also forms the increasing expenditure on food and beverages. The sugar market in terms of revenues has grown at a CAGR of 5% from FY’2009-FY’2014.

According to the research report, the sugar market in India will grow at a respectable rate due to the increasing sugarcane yield and dropping sugar prices.

“Increasing R&D innovations to increase sugarcane yield, increase in number of sugar mills and increasing prospects for sugar beet production will result in tightening of standards set by the government. Additionally, increase in productivity, enhancement in the crushing season period will probably affect the growth of this industry in the future” According to the Research Analyst, Ken Research.

The sugar industry in India has a tremendous potential for growth. This agro-based industry is a source of livelihood of 5 crore farmers and 5 lakh workers employed in the sugar mills, according to estimates of experts. India is the second top producer of sugar in the world. The government has to formulate a plan to meet the growing needs of the sugar cane farmers, consumers and sugar mill owners and workers. Only then will this industry attain a solid position in a globally competitive market.

With a total of about 600 mills in India, our country produces nearly 24 million tonnes of sugar each year. More importantly, this sector generates rural direct as well as indirect employment.
