Company crushed 134.08 lakh Qtls sugarcane. However recovery improvedby 0.12% over the previous Sugar Season due to better cane quality. With gradualacceptance of sugarcane variety Co-0238 by the farmers of the area the cane productionthroughout the State is expected to gradually increase. Your Company's sugar factory is inU.P. where state government announces the Sate Administered cane Price (SAP) which ismuch higher than the Fair Remunerative Price (FRP). This creates a distortion in theindustry because SAP is neither linked to sugar recovery nor does it take into accountdomestic and global prices and other relevant parameters. As a result when sugar pricesare low mill owners are unable to pay to farmers resulting in delayed payment huge canearrears and trust deficit between farmers and millers.

According to ICMR data in the year 2021-22 the sugar production isestimated upto 350 Lakh tons as compared to 311.92 Lakh tons produced in the previouscrushing season. Closing stock as percentage of off take is estimated at 24.80% ascompared to 30.80% last year. Considering an opening stock of 81.86 lakh tons as on 1stOctober 2021 India's consumption of 274 lakh tons sugar exports of 90 lakh tons and anestimated production of 350 lakh tons the closing stock of sugar in India as on 30thSeptember 2022 is placed at 67.86 lakh tons. The scenario may not undergo any significantchange during the forthcoming sugar season. It is expected that the pressure on the sugarprice would continue to remain given the over-supply scenario. Despite several challengesyour company lays continuous trust on strong farmer relationship cost control efficiencyimprovement and continue to focus on cane development activities comprising clean canevarietal change and modern agriculture practices which is expected to further improveproductivity in the coming years.

 

Long-term Industry Outlook

The Indian Sugar industry is facing a positive turnaround. Thecountry's sugar exports are expected to increase to around 9-10 million tonnes in sugarseason 2022 beginning October following lower production in Brazil due to adverseweather conditions.

With two successive seasons of production deficit international sugarprices hit a five-year high and have augured well for the domestic sugar industry. It isexpected that country's total export for sugar season 2022 will rise 9 to 10 milliontonnes surpassing the previous high of 7.2 million tons in previous season. While India'sexport restriction has not affected prices meaningfully prices are likely to remainrobust with a lower cane output and sugar mix in Brazil which bodes well for Indianexports.

Despite producing a high-quality sugar the competitiveness of Indianexports is affected by the country's high cane costs relative to other major producersincluding Brazil Thailand and Australia rendering exports unviable without subsidy untilabout a year back.

Despite an increase in the production higher exports and diversiontowards ethanol are likely to reduce the sugar stock further to around 7 million tonnes atend of Sugar Season 2022 although still higher than the normative carry forwardrequirement of around 5.5 million tonnes.

India's gross sugar production (before ethanol diversion) increased to38.3 million tonnes in Sugar Season 2022 (up to mid-May) up 5.8 million tonnes mainly dueto an increase in the production in Maharashtra and Karnataka.

However with a likely increase in sugar diversion towards ethanol to3.4 million tonnes (Sugar Season 2021: 2 million tonnes) the net sugar production islikely to come in at 35.5 million tonnes while consumption could continue to grow ataround 2 per cent increasing to 27.2 million tonnes in Sugar Season 2022.

Therefore while consumption is likely to grow at a modest rate of 1-2per cent the increase in cane diversion towards ethanol growth would result in anexportable surplus of 6-8 million tonnes in SS 23 (depending on cane output) hencemaintaining a healthy domestic balance.

The Government as part of Ethanol Blended Petrol Program has set atarget of 20% ethanol blending by 2025. As on May 2021 145.4 crore litres of Ethanol hasbeen supplied of which 77% is made from sugarcane juices. This bodes well for the sugarindustry in the long run. India has achieved a blending rate of more than 9% in thecurrent year. According to ICICI Securities Ethanol sales will contribute to 25-30% ofthe revenue of major sugar companies by FY 24.

 

Expansion of plant capacity:

SBEC Sugar has a total cane area of 26500 Hectare of land whichproduces approx. 238.50 Lac Qtl. Cane. The yield of sugarcane is going up year after year.Thus the yield of the company's cane area is going to be approx.. 265000 Ton. With 70%drawal the sugarcane availability for crushing is going to be 185500 Ton.

Currently the production facilities are designed for a daily sugarcanecrushing capacity of 8000 TCD (approx.). To take advantage of the increasing caneproduction the Company is considering augmenting its production capacity in due course to10000 TCD in two phases which will be completed within a period of three years. In thefirst phase it proposes to increase its capacity to 9000 TCD which will be operative fromseason 2022-23.

M/s. J.P. Mukherji & Associates Pvt. Ltd. Pune (JPMA) had beenassigned the job of preparing detailed technical report on capacity expansion andefficiency improvement. They have already submitted their detailed report and have nowbeen assigned the job of implementing the project.

 

ETHANOL PLANT

In the month of January 2022 India has crossed the mark of 9% ethanolblending with petrol. To achieve 20% blending by 2025 about 12 million litres of ethanolwould be required. The Sugar Industry will divert 6 million tonne of surplus sugar toproduce the 7 billion litres of ethanol needed for blending.

Considering the emphasis being laid by the Government on increasingEthanol production capacity to give impetus to its Ethanol Blending Policy with Petrol soas to save foreign exchange being spent on import of petrol to some extent the Companyis taking steps for setting up a 100 KLPD Ethanol Plant within its complex in VillageLoyan Malakpur (Baraut). The Company has already received the license to set-up theethanol plant up to the capacity of 100 KLPD. The Company has also filed application forinterest subvention on loan for an amount of Rs. 97.88 crores to the Ministry of ConsumerAffairs F & D Department of Food & Public Distribution for its in principleapproval. The approval is awaited.
