Sugar: exports of major countries 2018/2019 Brazil has the highest export volume of sugar of any country, at 19.6 million metric tons as of 2018/2019. The second largest sugar exporter, Thailand, has a little over half of the export volume of Brazil, at about 11.5 million metric tons of sugar.
Sugar Production in Brazil

As well as being the top exporter of sugar, Brazil is also the top producer of sugarcane in the world by a large margin. In 2017, Brazil produced some 758.55 million metric tons of sugarcane, more than twice as much as India, the second largest producer. Once the sugarcane is refined into pure sugar, Brazil produced nearly 39 million metric tons of processed sugar in 2017/2018. This figure has fluctuated over the last several years but has seen a general increase since 2009.

Global Sugar Consumption

Between 2009 and 2019, global sugar consumption has increased by over 20 million metric tons, from 154 million metric tons to around 177.6 million metric tons. The top three countries by sugar consumption in 2017/2018 were India, the European Union, and China, in that order. Though China has a larger population than India, India consumed nearly 11 million metric tons more sugar than China in that year.
