“In July 2015, China’s starch sugar industry was expected to get into the traditional peak period, along with largely increasing demand from soft drink (carbonated drink for instance) and hard drink (beer for instance). Impacted by the relatively depressing economic condition, however, the sales was not satisfactory. Some HFCS enterprises stated that the decrease in purchase by the downstream had led to the overstock. Hence, some HFCS enterprises down-regulated the operating rates or suspended production to ease the inventory pressure. In Shandong Province, for example, the operating rate of HFCS enterprises averaged around 55% in July, down by 3 percentage points MoM.

During June-July, China’s sucrose industry also began to fluctuate and turn down, mainly because of the increased imports of sugar pushed by the high profit from processing imported sugar. Notably, the lawbreakers smuggled sugar, which also threatened the domestic sucrose market.

In addition, the sucrose output in 2014/15 extracting season (October 2014-September 2015) decreased by about 21% YoY, which also gave impetus to the upward trend of the sucrose market.

Since the sucrose production in 2014/15 came to an end officially in June, in the last 2 months of the 2014/15 extracting season, China’s sucrose industry probably will pay more attention to the imports of sugar.

The IFT 2015 held in Chicago (the US) is also of great significance to the domestic market. Most of the Chinese sweetenerenterprises took part in it. Of this, some released their new products.
