Global Industrial Alcohol Market is valued approximately at USD 90.1 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 3.7% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Industrial alcohol is mainly ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol, a sticky, colorless, flame-retardant liquid, and a commonly used biofuel worldwide. It is derived from many sources, including corn, molasses, and seeds. Industrial alcohols serve as a reagent as well as a solvent in the medicinal, personal care, oil, and chemical industries with various industrial applications. Such alcohols are used for other than drinking purposes. Moreover, multifunctionality improves usage in diverse end-use applications. In comparison, ethanol, which is the alcohol mainly manufactured and consumed, is commonly used as a biofuel worldwide. Growth in the demand for bioethanol is one of the prominent factors contributing towards the market growth. Whereas, changing lifestyles, growing economy, and shift toward renewable resource utilization in developing economies is expected to create significant growth opportunity in the market over the forecast period. However, approval of regulatory bodies is expected to impede the market growth. Apart from this, the key players of global Industrial Alcohol market have adopted various strategies to gain competitive advantage including product launch, mergers and acquisition, partnerships and agreements, investment, funding and others. For instance, Raizen Energia invested USD 691 million to 2.9 million in its operating plant in Brazil in March 2019. This investment would help the business satisfy market demand for alcohol-based goods worldwide. Green Plains extended its facility at its affiliate, Green Plain Wood River LLC, to manufacture FCC-grade and USP-grade alcohol that meets FDA requirements in July 2020. This strategy would enable the company to cater for alcohol demand and serve a broader consumer base.

The regional analysis of global Industrial Alcohol market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. North America is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to ethyl alcohol production and exports in the U.S. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2020-2027. Factors such high consumption and production of methyl alcohol in China and ethanol in India would create lucrative growth prospects for the Industrial Alcohol market across Asia-Pacific region.
