Tridge summary

The recent increase in sugar prices has benefited Vietnamese sugar enterprises and motivated farmers to return to growing sugarcane, with domestic sugar prices averaging at 22,000 VND/kg in early December 2023. The upward momentum of sugar prices cooled as Vietnam entered the 2023/2024 sugarcane crop year, but it is difficult for world sugar prices to decrease deeply due to a forecasted increase in global sugar supply and a decrease in global sugar production output.

SSI Research estimates that sugar prices may be at the peak of the cycle, but the decrease in world sugar prices will not immediately impact domestic sugar prices due to close monitoring of imported sugar and compliance with anti-dumping and anti-subsidy policies in Vietnam. Despite increased domestic sugar production output meeting 1/3 of consumption demand, there will still be a large gap when entering the festival season in the second half of the year, supporting sugar prices in the short term.
