Sugar is a widely used commodity the world over, not just as a sweetener but also for preservation, texture modification, and as a colouring and bulking agent. Currently, about 110 countries produce sugar, and sugarcane, on average, accounts for nearly 80% of global sugar production. 

Being a food product the sugar manufacturing process is highly sensitive, and process variations can adversely impact its colour, taste, crystal size, etc. Sugar manufacturing is also highly energy and water intensive. High production costs, coupled with challenges like short crushing seasons, can affect the profitability of these plants.
