Barry notes that world sugar production in 1987/88 is forecast to fall 1.5% to 101.2 Mt, reflecting nearly 5% less beet sugar. World consumption of sugar is forecast to rise to 101.7 Mt, about 1.5% up on 1986/87. Stocks will therefore fall and prices move upward. However, beet and cane processing capacity is still substantially above consumption; when prices rise, supply response tends to be quick; and the basic tendency towards world sugar overproduction persists.
