Demand for sugar in Sri Lanka: a time series analysis

, : Demand for sugar in Sri Lanka: a time series analysis. Sri Lankan Journal of Agricultural Sciences 30: 49-64

Annual sugar consumption in Sri Lanka has shown an upward trend from 21.5 kg per caput in 1985 to 22.6 kg per caput in 1990. Domestic production of sugar in three state-owned and private factories was 57 165 t in 1990. As demand is higher than domestic production, nearly 360 000 t sugar was imported, at a cost of Rs 5100 million. This study investigates the factors affecting the demand for sugar and the nature of government intervention in the sugar industry.
