In the recent past, the world sugar trade has undergone significant structural changes. Since 2000, most of the additional sugar traded in the world market has been raw sugar. Between 2000 and 2005, raw sugar exports averaged 23.3mln tonnes, compared to 20 mln tonnes of white sugar exports. While the volumes of white sugar traded internationally have remained locked within a range of between 20 to 25 mln tonnes, raw sugar exports have increased significantly by over 10 mln tonnes to nearly 35 mln tonnes now. Behind this structural change in the world sugar trade is the mushrooming of destination refineries in three key regions: the Middle East and North Africa, the Far East and the Indian Subcontinent, where total new raw sugar refining capacity installed since 2000 has now reached 17 mln tonnes. Around 6.5 mln tonnes of new refining capacity has come online in the Middle East and North Africa, 5.3 mln tonnes in the Indian Subcontinent and 5.1 mln tonnes in the Far East. In addition, 2.7 mln tonnes of refining capacity has been set up in Equatorial and Sub-Saharan Africa. Crucially, another 10.6 mln tonnes of raw sugar refining capacity is expected to come online worldwide over the next few years..
