Opportunity Analysis, & Industry Forecast
till 2025
Ethanol commonly known as ethyl alcohol is colorless and flammable chemical
compound with an agreeable odor and taste. It is renewable, and can be produced
by the fermentation of starch and sugar based biological materials and cellulosic
feedstock, such as sugarcane, wood, wheat, corn, and barley. Corn and starch
based crops are majorly used for the production of ethanol. Ethanol is highly soluble
in water and most of the organic solvent, due to this it is widely used as a solvent in
various industries. Further, it is extensively used as a preservative in pharmaceutical
industries and it is a major component in producing alcoholic beverages.

Extensive usage of ethanol in automotive industry as a fuel or fuel additive, is
propelling the demand for ethanol in the global market. The ethanol market has
witnessed a rapid growth over the past 10 years due to rapid funding for biofuel by
the regulating bodies, since biofuel is considered as an eco-friendly alternative for
gasoline. Further, according to the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency,
one liter of ethanol significantly reduces CO2 emissions by more than 95%, thereby
saving approximately 2.3 Kilograms of carbon dioxide (CO2). Further, ethanol is also
responsible for reducing carcinogenic and particulate emissions by approximately
65% to 70%.
However, rising raw material prices is one of the major factors barring the growth of
the ethanol market globally. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA), global production of corn is expected to fall by 3.31%, reducing by 1.8
million tons by 2018, from 1031.86 million tons in 2017. This is expected to create a
shortfall of corn with high procurement costs, which is expected to have a negative
impact on the growth of the ethanol market. However, the impact of this restraint is
expected to remain medium throughout the forecast period due to the fluctuation in
the production of raw materials.
Based on the process used, the ethanol market has been segmented into dry milling
and wet milling. Furthermore, dry milling process dominated the global ethanol
market both by revenue and by volume in 2016 and is expected to lead the market
throughout the forecast period.
Based on sources, the ethanol market has been segmented into natural and
synthetic sources, where the latter accounted for the major share in 2016 and is
expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period. However, Natural
sources are projected to maintain a rapid growth during the forecast period.
Synthetic sources has been further segmented into oil derivatives and coal among
others, where the former accounted for the major share in 2016 and is expected to
lead the market throughout the forecast period. Natural sources have been further
segmented into sugarcane, sugar beet, maize, and rye among others.
Ethanol finds application in end-use industries such as automotive, alcoholic
beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Alcoholic beverages segment
accounted for the largest share in terms of both revenue and volume, owing to
increasing usage of ethanol in alcoholic beverages. Moreover, it is expected to hold
dominant position in the market over the forecast period.
North America accounted for the largest market share in global ethanol market in
2016 and the same is anticipated to maintain its supremacy throughout the forecast
period, with the U.S. being the major contributing country. According to the
Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), the country exported close to 850 million
gallons of ethanol to more than 50 countries. Some of the major importers of ethanol
exported from the U.S. include Canada, India, China, and South Korea among
others. Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Illinois, and South Dakota have the maximum
number of ethanol refineries in the U.S.
Latin America is the second largest market for ethanol accounting for a share of
more than 35% in terms of revenue. Brazil is the major contributor to the growth of
the ethanol market in Latin America both in terms of revenue and volume. Raizen,
GranBio, and Petorbras are some of the major ethanol producing companies based
in Brazil.
In terms of revenue, global ethanol market was valued at US$ 48,734.3 Million in
2016 and is expected to register a CAGR of 1.00% during the forecast period to
reach USD 53,105.3 Million by 2025. However, in terms of volume, the market stood
at 27,145.9 Million Gallons in 2016 and the same is anticipated to reach 32,165.3
Million Gallons by the end of the forecast period, projecting a CAGR of 1.77% during
the forecast period.
