Being an important source of food energy, sugar today represents one of the top ten most traded commodities around the world. Known for its sweetening properties, sugar is proficient in lowering the freezing point of foods. Moreover, sugar is considered an indispensable product for the food industry as it provides an even texture to food items, enhances flavours, adds warm colour and extends the shelf life of the bakery products.
Albeit facing competition due to the presence of a number of low-calorie sweeteners, sugar still remains the preferable commodity for the majority of people across the world. The functional properties of sugar have helped expand its applications in the food and beverage industry. It is used in the pharmaceutical industry for its solubility effects in cough syrups and tablets. Factors such as rising population, increasing disposable incomes, flourishing food and beverage sectors and growing consumption of sugar in emerging regions have also contributed to the growth of the global sugar market. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the market reached a consumption volume of 186 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 200 Million Tons by 2024.
