Nevertheless, prices rebounded during September, amid a growing consensus that the 2015/16 international crop year should see a swing to a global deficit (currently projected by Rabobank at 4.8 million tonnes), putting an end to an unprecedented five consecutive years of surplus and stock build-up.
“The fundamentals of supply and demand seem to be telling us that, from a producer´s point of view, the worst of the current price cycle may be over,” says Andy Duff, Rabobank Global Strategist Sugar. “2015/16 will be the year sugar prices finally reverse the long downward trend we have had since 2011. However, international sugar prices are not determined by fundamentals alone. Global growth concerns and currency volatility, especially in Brazil, still have to be watched in the weeks and months ahead.”
