Bio-ethanol Market Analysis by Feedstock, Application and Geography - Forecast to 2025

DUBLIN, March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Bio-ethanol Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for bio-ethanol is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period.

Major factors driving the growth of the market studied, is the increasing demand from the automotive industry, and increasing government initiatives. In case of the United States, specifically, uplifting restrictions on selling gasoline containing a higher percentage of ethanol in the country will be a major driver in the country.

On the flipside, shifting focus to bio-butanol and less mileage provided, when blended with more percentage of bio-ethanol, is going to somehow hinder the market growth.

The global bioethanol market is fragmented, with top seven companies having a share of ~30%. Some of these major players include POET LLC, Valero Energy Corporation, Archer-Daniels-Midland Company, Green Plains Inc., and Flint Hills Resources, LLC, among others.

Key Highlights

    --  Automotive and transportation industry dominated the market a with more
        than 80% of the total share.
    --  Increasing consumption of Bio-fuels in the Aviation Industry is likely
        to act as an opportunity in the future.
    --  North America dominated the market across the world, with the largest
        consumption from the United States.

Market Trends

Food & Beverages to Drive Market Growth

    --  The best-known end-user of renewable ethanol, after the transport
        sector, is the drinks industry. Bio-ethanol is used in alcoholic
        beverages, such as vodkas, liquors, and other spirits for fermentation
        process. In recent times, bio-ethanol is one of the most desired
        fermentation products in beer brewing and wine-making.
    --  Bio-ethanol is used as a natural product to extract and concentrate
        flavors and aromas, which are then used by the food and drink industry.
    --  As a food additive, ethanol can help evenly distribute food coloring, as
        well as enhance the flavor of food extracts.
    --  It can also be used in the production of cakes, such as in flavorings.
        For example, vanilla extract, a common food flavoring, is made by curing
        and processing vanilla beans in a solution of ethanol and water.
    --  For instance, the baking industry plays an important role in the United
        States. There are more than 2,800 commercial bakeries and 6,000 retail
        bakeries operating in the United States.
    --  Furthermore, the bakery industry in China has entered a period of rapid
        growth. In the coming years, the country is anticipated to become the
        largest producer and consumer of baked products.
    --  Hence, the growth in drinks and bakery industries is expected to
        increase the demand for bio-ethanol for food and beverages applications
        in the coming years.

North America to Dominate the Global Market

    --  North America region dominated the global market share. The United
        States is the largest producer of bio-ethanol, worldwide, followed by
        Brazil, China, and Canada. It is also the largest consumer of
    --  In the recent years, bio-ethanol production increased as a result of
        higher renewable fuel standard (RFS) targets and growth in domestic
        motor gasoline consumption, almost all of which is now blended with 10%
        ethanol by volume.
    --  Moreover, the US pharmaceutical industry is also expanding at a rapid
        pace. According to the Centre of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the
        US National Health Expenditure is projected to grow by an average of
        5.5% annually over the next decade.
    --  Driven by biofuel policies, which aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG)
        emissions and increase domestic energy supply, US production and
        consumption of bio-ethanol have doubled over the years.
    --  The demand for bio-ethanol has improved over the decade in the region,
        owing to factors, such as rapid growth in corn-based bio-ethanol in the
        United States, advances in crop yields, efficient energy usage in
        fertilizer production, biomass-to-ethanol conversion rates, and energy
        efficiency in ethanol production,.
    --  These factors are also expected to drive the market in North America,
        during the studied period.
