Sugar consumption in the U.S. 2009/10-2019/20

Sugar consumption in the United States has been on the rise in the past decade. Between 2018 and 2019, Americans consumed about 11 million metric tons of sugar, up from about 10 million metric tons in 2010.

Sugar retail in the United States

Sugar is readily available and affordable in the United States, which perhaps explains why sugar consumption has increased over the last several years. The average retail price per pound of granulated sugar in the U.S. was just under 65 cents in 2017. The price of sugar in the U.S. peaked in 2012 at 69 cents per pound.

U.S. sugar production

Sugar is generally derived from two distinct crops, sugar cane and sugar beets. The United States grows both crops in large amounts. In 2018, about 35 million tons of sugar cane were grown and harvested in the United States. The two U.S. states with the highest production volume of sugar cane in that year were Florida and Louisiana. In that same year, about 33.14 million tons of sugar beets were produced.
