26 Opportunities for Investors in the Sugar Sector

27 MORE THAN 300,000 TONS OF SUGAR SUPPLY GAP IN TANZANIA, SET TO INCREASE EXPONENTIALLY  The primary market opportunity for sugar producers in Tanzania is local: as existing sugar estates reach peak production, the supply gap is set to increase at an estimated 6% per annum from the current 300,000 tons / year, driven by economic and population growth 27  As incomes rise, sugar consumption in Tanzania is expected to increase rapidly from the current low levels of per capita consumption  Despite rapid production growth of existing estates following privatizations in the late 1990’s, supply could not keep up with demand over the last decade  The supply gap is set to increase as existing estates reach their full capacity: the Sugar Board of Tanzania estimates that current producers could peak at 400,000 tons by 2020  Regional Markets-East Africa Source: Sugar Board of Tanzania, Illovo, Mtibwa, TPC, FAO 300,000 tons sugar deficit in Tanzania (1000 tons) Demand incl. industrial Estimated sugar demand Production >300,000 tons current supply gap >600,000 tons supply gap by 2020 World average per capita sugar consumption +18 kg/yr Per capita sugar consumption 2010/11 est.
