About This Report


The UK Sugar Production industry processes sugar beet and sugar cane into sugar, sugar substitutes and related products. The industry has faced problems over the past five years as economic hardship squeezed demand from key downstream sources. However, the real challenge came in the form of EU sugar policies. Following a 2006 shakeup of EU sugar legislation, rigid quotas limiting European sugar production were introduced. These continue to restrict the output of domestic sugar producers and constraining the revenue they generate.

This industry covers the manufacture or refining of sugar (sucrose) and sugar substitutes from the juice of cane, beet, maple and palm. It also includes the production of sugar syrups, molasses, maple syrup and raw sugar. The manufacture of glucose, glucose syrup and maltose is excluded from the industry.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
