OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2014 Chapter about Sugar: Abstract: This chapter describes the market situation and the latest set of quantitative medium-term projections for global and national sugar markets for the ten crop-year period, 2014-23. It covers the developments expected in world and national sugar prices, production, use, trade (imports and exports) and stocks (including stock-to-use). The quantitative projections are developed using the partial equilibrium Aglink-Cosimo model of world agriculture. The chapter also includes two boxes that explain market impacts of EU sweetener production quotas and the challenges that the US sugar programme faces in removing sugar surpluses. The chapter concludes with a discussion of some main issues and uncertainties that may have an impact on the medium-term outlook for sugar. These include sugar policies, and specific market developments influencing production, consumption and trade in sugar.
