Sugar's bull run drives prices, but markets eye correction

October 14, 2016 (6:03 mins)



In this S&P Global Platts podcast, Tim Worledge and Dr. Claudiu Covrig discuss the arrival of sugar's second season in deficit and the ongoing impact on prices, with raw sugar prices surging to over 24 c/lb in recent months. After five years of surplus, sugar has been candidate for commodity of the year, but a better crop in Brazil, potentially lower Indian consumption and uncertainty over Thailand's outlook may yet upset expectations in key sugar-sensitive countries, translating into less certain times ahead.
