Tridge summary

In the 2023/2024 harvest, Brazil's sugarcane production soared to a record 713.2 million tons, a 16.8% increase from the previous cycle, largely due to favorable weather and sector investments, particularly in the center-south region. This surge led to record sugar and ethanol outputs, with sugar production at 45.68 million tons and ethanol at 35.61 billion liters, alongside a peak in sugar exports generating US$ 18.27 million from over 35 million tons sold internationally. However, the ethanol market faced challenges, with exports dropping by 2.92% to 2.57 billion liters, influenced by fluctuating exchange rates and declining oil prices, which reduced gasoline prices and impacted ethanol demand.
