Bioethanol Market by Feedstock (Starch-Based, Sugar-Based, Cellulose-Based), End-Use Industry (Transportation, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Alcoholic Beverages), Blend (E5, E10, E15 to E70, E75 to E85), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Bioethanol market to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% (2017-2022)”
The global bioethanol market is projected to reach USD 68.95 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.3% between 2017 and 2022. The increased demand for bioethanol in different end-use industries, such as transportation, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, alcoholic beverages, etc., acts as a key driving factor influencing the growth of the global bioethanol market. However, the increase in acceptance of electric vehicle and ban on internal combustion engines affects the bioethanol market growth. Many countries are planning to ban the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles, which would affect the bioethanol market. This might act as a restraint for the growth of the bioethanol market.
“Transportation end-use industry type segment is expected to be the largest end-use industry during the forecast period”
The transportation end-use industry segment accounted for largest share of the bioethanol market in 2016, in terms of value. The transportation sector accounts for a major share of the worlds CO2 emission. Producing and using bioethanol in fuels can help reduce CO2 emissions significantly. All these factors act as key growth drivers for the usage of bioethanol in the transportation end-use industry segment.
Cellulose-based feedstock type segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type segment during the forecast period
The cellulose-based feedstock segment is expected to be the fastest-growing feedstock type segment in the global bioethanol market during the forecast period, in terms of volume. The cellulose-based bioethanol uses inedible feedstocks such as stems, stalks, agricultural waste, leaves of plants, grass, and wood. These feedstocks are abundant and more sustainable. This, in turn, acts as a key growth driver for the cellulose-based feedstock type segment.
“North America expected to be the largest market for bioethanol”
North America is expected to be the largest market for bioethanol, owing to the high demand for bioethanol from countries such as the US, Canada, and Mexico. The US is estimated to be the largest market for bioethanol in North America, followed by Canada and Mexico. However, Mexico is projected to be the fastest-growing market for bioethanol in this region. The growth of end-use industries such as transportation, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, alcoholic beverages, etc., has led to the increased demand for bioethanol in this region. Increasing government and environment regulations in the region also act as key growth drivers for the bioethanol market.
