Raw Sugar Price Trends for the First Half of 2023

Raw Sugar experienced a surge in prices during the first two quarters of 2023. Constricted supplies were the primary reason bullish trendss were observed in the Raw Sugar market. Indian sugarcane harvest took a major hit because of uneven and unseasonal rainfall patterns. This forced the Indian Government to limit the sugar exports in order to maintain the domestic supplies.

This step by the major exporting economy created havoc, and the Raw Sugar prices surged by about 17% in the US market and stood at around 910 USD/lb (Spot FD), while a surge of around 13% was observed in the Brazilian Raw Sugar market. Overall, bullish market trendss were observed.

Raw sugar refers to sugar before the molasses is separated in the processing of sugar cane. Raw Sugar is known to be a sugar type which retains a small to large amount of molasses from the mother liquor, that is, the partially evaporated sugar cane juice. Thus, it contains all the mineral and acid impurities of the syrup. It is found in shades of brown, with flavours of caramel and smoke. Demerara sugar, Turbinado sugar, and Barbados sugar are some of the types of Raw Sugar.

Production Process

  • Production of Raw Sugar via  Milling and Evaporation

Cane Sugar is processed into Raw Sugar by a sequence of operations like harvesting, cutting, crushing, extraction of juice, clarification, evaporation, and crystallisation. In sugar mills, the juice is extracted from the stalks of sugarcane via the process of milling, wherein the cane tissues are disrupted by cutting, grinding or ‘fiberizing’ to extract nearly 95–97% of available sucrose. Then, the obtained juice is filtered, and the clarified juice is concentrated through evaporation into crystalline raw sugar.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated. The information provided comes from the compilation and processing of commercial data officially reported for each nation (i.e. government agencies, external trade bodies, and industry publications).
