The sugar industry is one of the top performing stock market sectors in the Indian economy. The highest sugar consumption country in the world is India. The products used for sugarcane processing are bagasse, molasses, and press mud. All the sugar industries use these products to make ethanol, power, and many other products. Today we are going to discuss the best sugar sector stocks in India.
From the last few months, sugar industry stocks have rallied more than 20%. It all happened because the government is giving double incentives for producing ethanol.
The government is showing a lot of interest in increasing ethanol production because, in the future, ethanol will be used in place of fuel in car engines to reduce air pollution.
Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel made by fermenting sugarcane juice. It is used to produce drugs, plastics, polishers, cosmetics, etc.
Ethanol is the backbone of the sugar industry. As the petrol price increases day by day the government has decided to increase the combination of ethanol with petrol. Currently, the blending percentage of ethanol with petrol is 8.5%, and the government is targeting to increase the blending percentage of ethanol with fuel to 20% by 2023.
