Ethanol Market Size, Growth Statistics, Latest Trends, SWOT Analysis by 2032

The global ethanol market size was valued at USD 99.06 billion in 2022 and is predicted to surpass around USD 162.12 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2023 and 2032.

Ethanol is a flammable chemical which is also known as ethyl alcohol. It is a renewable and colorless chemical which is primarily manufactured by the fermentation of sugar-based materials, starch, as well as cellulose based feedstocks including corn, barley, wood, and wheat, among others. Ethyl alcohol is an organic solvent having high solubility, owing to which it is mainly used in the various end-use applications in industrial sector. Ethanol is a primary component in the production of alcoholic beverages and it is extensively used in the pharmaceutical industries as a preservative. Major applications of the ethanol include fuel & fuel additives, disinfectant, beverages, personal care, industrial solvents, and others. Further, the sudden rise of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increased usage of alcohol-based hand sanitizers due to which demand for ethanol has been augmented tremendously.

Growth Factors:

Increasing usage of ethyl alcohol as biofuel is a major factor driving growth of the global ethanol market. Additionally, increasing consumption of alcoholic beverages is among the major factors boosting demand for ethanol worldwide. Currently, due to the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, usage of alcohol-based hand sanitizers has been increased, which is expected to boost growth of the target market in the near future. Food and Drugs Administration has approved ethanol as active ingredient in the manufacturing of alcohol based hand sanitizers, hence leading players operating on the global ethanol market are focusing on the capacity expansion and production of the ethanol. These factors are supporting in flourishing the target industry. Moreover, government in the developed as well as emerging economies are promoting ethanol production, as ethanol is a renewable biofuel. Also, growing awareness among individuals regarding environmental safety is another factor to boost growth of the target industry in the near future. Ethanol is environmental fuel thereby reduces the level of pollution which is a crucial factor for the adoption of ethanol in most of the fuel blends which is fueling growth of the target industry during the forecast period. Nevertheless, emerging markets of ethanol is anticipated to create potential opportunities for the growth of the target market.
