Industrial Alcohol Market: Summary

The Global Industrial Alcohol Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 276.4 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 9.2%.

Industrial alcohol is distilled ethyl alcohol of high pure form. It is a volatile, colorless, and flammable liquid mostly used into biofuel. It is majorly obtained from molasses, fossil fuel, grains and others. It is used in an array of applications including biofuel, pharmaceuticals, and personal care. Ethyl alcohol can be used in a gasoline engine as a blending fuel for gasoline.

Industrial Alcohol Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Demand for Bioethanol

Bioethanol is a type of fuel that produced by using biological sources, having advantages over conventional fuels, owing to its biological origin and renewability. Bioethanol is a clean fuel as results, it is rapidly being used as an auto fuel by the transportation sector. Numerous laws and regulations exist globally, encouraging the use of bioethanol, such as European Union Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED) and Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) by EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). As the transportation industry increases the demand for bioethanol increases, due to biofuel mandates by regulatory bodies, rise in concerns regarding the surge in pollution & emission of greenhouse gases, and abundant raw material availability. Thus the increasing demand for bioethanol is expected to boost the global industrial alcohol market.

Market Restraint:

  • Fluctuating Cost of the Raw Materials

Several materials such as molasses, corn, grains, fossil fuel others can be used for the manufacturing of valves. Though molasses and grains are widely available, they together cannot fulfil the global demand for industrial alcohol. Thus, volatility in the prices of fossil fuel is a major factor likely to hamper the market growth during the assessment period. The price fluctuations are attributed to the mining and extraction of the raw materials, which are dependent on geological and geopolitical factors. Additionally, naturally available raw material, which adds up the cost on account of the supply-demand gap which is further likely to hamper the market growth up to a certain extent.
