Industrial Alcohols Market Overview:

Global Industrial Alcohols Market was valued at $100,535 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $198,610 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 10.2% from 2017 to 2023. Industrial alcohols act as a reagent as well as a solvent in various industrial applications in the pharmaceuticals, personal care, energy sector, and chemical industries. These alcohols are used in applications other than beverages. In addition, multi-functionality increases the adoption in various end-use applications. Moreover, ethanol, being the majorly produced and consumed alcohol, is widely utilized as a biofuel worldwide. These fuels are produced by fermentation of sugars derived from wheat, corn, sugar beets, sugar cane, and molasses. Furthermore, it is used in petrol engines as an alternative to gasoline. In addition, alcohols such as methanol, benzyl alcohol, and isopropyl alcohol are also used in the production of food products, flavorings, cosmetics, and adhesives.

Global Industrial Alcohols Market Segmentation

Global Industrial Alcohols Market Segmentation

The global industrial alcohols market is segmented based on type, application, source, and geography. On the basis of type, it is classified into isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, isobutyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, and others (pentanol and methyl-1-butanol). Based on source, it is categorized into molasses, sugar, grains, fossil fuels, and others (whey and grapes). On the basis of application, it is divided into fuel, chemical intermediates & solvent, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, food ingredients, and others (adhesives and coatings). On the basis of processing method, it is divided into fermentation and synthetic. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The global industrial alcohols market is driven by in the growing demand for biofuels among end users for energy security and increasing demand for low-priced feedstock in the chemical industry. Moreover, surge in demand for organic solvents due to excellent properties of these alcohols, such as high-octane number and more flammability characteristics, boosts the market growth in transportation. In addition, shortage of petroleum and rise in prices of energy have aggravated the problem of energy crisis; leading to increasing utilization of alcohols as an energy source. Further, bioethanol is mixed with gasoline and diesel for use as a fuel in automobiles. Moreover, government mandates to use 22% ethanol blended petrol in Brazil coupled with blend of 10% ethanol with petrol (gasohol) in the U.S. for routine usage in cars have propelled the market growth.

In addition, proactive government initiatives and increasing use of methanol in chemical industries coupled with spiraling growth in production facilities are expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, increase in the number of partnerships between companies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce dependence of the energy sector on imported fossil fuels are expected to boost the market growth. However, fluctuating prices of feedstocks, such as molasses, are expected to hamper the production of alcohol, thereby hampering the market growth.

Top Investment Pockets

The fuel application segment is anticipated to be the most lucrative for investment and is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increased usage of ethanol as a motor fuel in the automotive industry and less dependence of greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. Thus, blended ethanol as a transportation fuel is further gaining demand in the developing countries, such as China, Thailand, and India, which in turn boosts the market growth.
