Sugar Stocks Continue Uptrend on Healthy Outlook. Can the Rally Sustain?

May 4, 2021

In an otherwise weak market, sugar stocks rallied up to 20% yesterday on strong earnings outlook and optimism over the government's policy on ethanol blending.

Most of the sugar stocks hit the upper circuit limit on Monday with shares of E.I.D. Parry and Balrampur Chini hitting their 52-week highs.

Company Name % Gain
Bajaj Hind. Sugar 19.9
KM Sugar 19.9
Dhampur Sugar 19.6
Dwarikesh Sugar 19.6
Avadh Sugar 18.9
Dalmia Bharat Sugar 17.3
E.I.D. Parry 16.7
Balrampur Chini 16.3
Vishwaraj Sugar Ind 11.3
Shree Renuka Sugars 9.9

Factors Contributing to the Rally

India's sugar industry is set to benefit from global and domestic factors.

Lower output from countries like Brazil, Thailand and the EU would keep supplies tight, enabling India to increase exports.

Harvest trends are pointing at lower sugarcane yield this year in Brazil and other key sugar-producing countries are not expected to produce higher output.

According to reports, sugar output for April in Brazil was down 35% year-on-year (YoY).

A Reuters report quoting industry group Unica said: "Brazil's center-south sugar output was only 624,000 tonnes in the first half of April versus 971,000 tonnes in a similar period last year. Cane crush was seen at 15.6 m tonnes, 30% less than in 2020."

This bodes well for India as lower output from these countries will keep supply tight and global prices firm.

On the domestic front, favorable policies, rising ethanol demand (blending target of 20% by CY25 from 8% currently), aggressive ethanol capacity addition would drive an earnings by going forward.

The government's steps to ensure sugarcane farmers are paid without significant arrears has also boosted investor sentiment.

So far this year, Indian sugar mills have exported 2.49 m tonnes of sugar. An additional 3.03 m tonnes of sugar is in transit, according to trade body AISTA (All India Sugar Trade Association).

Sugar Prices on the Rise

Domestic sugar prices have increased 7-8% in last one month mainly due to high summer demand & crushing season getting over reflecting no surprises on sugar production front.

Media reports state that many analysts believe domestic sugar prices would remain above Rs 34/kg given aggressive exports & diversion of sugarcane towards ethanol production.

Similarly, global sugar prices are also on rise and have risen as much as 15% in the past two months.
