Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/27/2012 -- While the industry experienced modest growth during the five years to 2011 due to a rise in sugar consumption, domestic demand will taper off over the next five years. Increasing import competition will cut into demand, and downstream demand will fall as consumers opt for no-calorie sweeteners. To support future revenue growth, sugar processors will rely on alternative energy opportunities.
The industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing raw sugar, liquid sugar and refined sugar from sugarcane, raw cane sugar and sugar beets. The US Sugar Processing industry acquires its raw material from sugarcane growers. Sugar refiners also buy from millers. This raw material is processed into a range of sugar products for industrial and consumer uses. The final products are sold to grocery wholesalers, retailers and food manufacturers.
