SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2014) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The Sugar Industry continues to be an important driver of economic development across the world. While obviously one of the key uses of sugar is for food consumption, sugarcane processing also offers tremendous opportunities in the energy sector, making sugar a unique and valuable crop across the world.
Industrial Info is currently tracking more than 1,800 capital and maintenance projects worth over $30.7 billion in our Global Sugar Industry Database. It will come as no surprise to those familiar with the Sugar Industry that South America and South Asia are the leading world regions for project spending within the sector.
Brazil leads all countries in both the number and value of these projects, with more than 860 projects valued at over $15.7 billion.
