Ethanol is a chemically produced compound, also known as ethyl alcohol or grain alcohol. It is a form of simple alcohol naturally produced by fermentation of sugar, corn, barley, wheat by yeasts.

Ethanol Market: Interpretation of Market Outlook

Ethanol is used widely in medical industry in the form of drugs and antidote. Popularly known as recreation drug, it is an active agent for central nervous system depressant

The current environment for ethanol market is growing unprecedently. The trajectory attained in terms of growth and application is burgeoning   and expected to grow with CAGR 0f 5 % during the forecast period.

 New entrants are grabbing this unparalleled opportunity with clear-headed strategy to maximise the returns. In fact, contrary to recent fears of pandemic, careful analysis shows that the market for ethanol has gained tremendously. With growing demand form automobile and aviation sector the growth chart looks astounding.

Ethanol Market: Prime drivers & stoppers

The analysis of comprehensive data collected globally over sales and application of ethanol spells out a flourishing market in near future. The demand of ethanol blending with petrol and other extravagant fossil fuels are constantly rising.

Aviation industry also utilized the opportunity to experiment ethanol blending and that proved a leap jump in fuel innovation.

Availability of raw materials like sugarcane, wheat and corn which are produced abundantly worldwide makes the process of ethanol manufacturing cost effective. Countries like India where sugarcane and wheat are produced in surplus, provides an opportunity to replace much imported crude oil to a large extent.

Ethanol is in demand mainly as a biofuel, a clean and cheap form of energy, which can be produced easily, unlike petrol and gasoline which are manufacture d in a much-complicated process.

Finally, Government policies worldwide to enable self-sustainable form of fuel production and enable new firm creation leverage support to ethanol market.

However, synthesis of ethanol is primarily dependent on feedstock like sugarcane, corn, wheat, barley etc. which in turn can be affected by volatility in rain or unfavourable monsoon. Furthermore, supply-chain constraint with import restriction is not favourable.

Ethanol Market:  Regional Analysis

North America is most influential and dominating market globally. The United States is the largest producer followed by Brazil and China.

In Asia Pacific region, India and China are remarkably using ethanol in pharmaceutical industry. It is a new initiative in renewable energy which is cleaner and more capable of reducing high imports of crude oil and petrochemicals in developing countries.

For instance, on a per capita basis India has high rates of petrol consumption owing to high crude oil imports. This led to trade deficit and low forex reserves. In this scenario ethanol can be a game changer, though it cannot replace petrol and diesel but can be blended to large extent
