Food grade alcohol is essentially used in the food & beverages industry as an ingredient in products such as flavorings, extracts, dyes, and others.

A recently published report by Future Market Insights (FMI) reveals that the global food grade alcohol market is scheduled to cross the US$ 13 billion revenue threshold through 2030. The report provides an exhaustive analysis of the key growth drivers from 2020-2030.

Food grade alcohol has been acquiring surging popularity across numerous application areas, ranging from food preservation to pharmaceutical formulations, cosmetics & fragrances manufacturing and spirits. Alcoholic beverages have long abandoned their premium tag, becoming more of a necessity than desire in various households.

Rising disposable incomes have led consumers to demand specialized food and beverage products, compelling manufacturers to introduce innovative formulations across the market. This is touted to be a primary growth accelerator in the coming years.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The novel coronavirus pandemic has drastically altered the global economic landscape. Several industries are relegating growth projections to much lower levels than the pre-pandemic levels. The food grade alcohol market has made similar adjustments.

According to experts, the near-term forecast appears to be quite sluggish. Growth is being stifled due to strict curbs on logistics, rendering procurement of ingredients required for the production process quite difficult. This is expected to last until the latter half of 2021.

At the same time, uptake across the pharmaceutical and personal care industries is sustaining demand. Since the pandemic’s onset, hand sanitizer sales have spiked exponentially, with consumers hoarding vast quantities of sanitizer sachets and bottles. Most of these use ethanol in conjunction with other alcohol variants.  

Since it is highly effective in eradicating surface grade viruses, uptake of food grade alcohol across the aforementioned industries is slated to witness further growth in the upcoming forecast period.
