Global Bio-Alcohol Market Information-by Type (Bioethanol, Biomethanol, Biobutanol, and BDO), by Application (Infrastructure, Transportation, Medical, Power Generation, Others) and by Region - Forecast to 2022

Market Forecast and Overview:

Global Bio-Alcohol Market is set for a potential growth and is expected to reach USD 110 billion by 2022 with CAGR of 8.8% between 2016 and 2022.

Bio-alcohol is manufactured from feedstock such as biomass including organic waste. It is organic chemical with essential properties through fermentation of cellulose or sugar. With technological advancement in bio-based chemicals, cellulosic biomass has increased their usage in industries which is also expected to support the demand of bio-alcohol market. Bio- alcohol market is growing owing to rise in need of conventional fuels in transportation and power generation industries which is due to scarcity of non-renewable resources. The pressure on automobile and power generation companies to reduce carbon foot print and greenhouse effect is driving the focus on bio-alcohols as alternative to gasoline.

Bio-Alcohols has various advantages like ecofriendly, easily producible, renewable etc. which makes it viable to use in various industries across the globe. According to types, bio-alcohol is segmented into bioethanol, bio methanol, biobutanol, and BDO. Out of all, Bio-ethanol is leading segment. Ethanol gases is less atmospheric reactive and reduced oxidized formulation. These leads to extensive use of bio-ethanol in automobile industry. It also offers high octane fuel alternative for gasoline which is also used in another industry like power generation. Rising need of fossil fuels over conventional fuels are creating steady growth demand of bio-alcohols across the globe.

According to application, transportation is leading segment in bio-alcohol market. Rapid industrialization in developed countries are boosting the need of power generation with less consumption of fuels. Bio-alcohol are ecofriendly in nature and has found tremendous application in transportation, infrastructure and construction industry. Moreover, increasing carbon emission with increasing greenhouse effect is trending the focus on bio-alcohols in automobile and transportation industry. Reducing the global dependence on non-renewable resources and increase use of bio-based chemicals is driving the bio-alcohol market over the forecasted period.
