End of sugar quotas: impacts on EU and world sugar markets (2017-2022)

How will the sugar markets in the EU and worldwide evolve during the coming years?
The reform of the single Common Market Organisation for sugar - which will eliminate production quotas for sugar and isoglucose and remove the minimum guaranteed purchase price paid to sugar beet growers - will create major changes to supply and demand beginning October 2017. A new post-quotas landscape will emerge from 2017/18.

Our new report will provide enhanced understanding and clarity for the outlook from 2017/18 to 2021/22:
  • Changes to sugar beet growing areas and production in EU countries in the years following the reform
  • Estimates for sugar production in the European Union in the post-quota years
  • Changes to isoglucose production and consumption in the EU, and potential competition for demand share between this sweetener and white sugar
  • Estimates for EU sugar imports in the post-quotas environment
  • Changes to world sugar production and global demand for sugar, and the EU's role on the international sugar market
  • Outlook for EU sugar exports in the post-quotas environment, both exports to third countries and intra-EU
  • Changes to the sugar balance sheets in European countries and outlook for sugar prices on EU and global markets
