“Mandatory use of bioethanol fuel blends in the transportation industry is projected to drive the overall growth of the bioethanol market across the globe from 2020 to 2025.”
The global bioethanol market size is projected to grow from USD 33.7 billion in 2020 to USD 64.8 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.0% from 2020 to 2025. The global bioethanol industry has witnessed high growth primarily because of the mandatory usage of bioethanol fuel blends in many countries, especially in the transportation vehicles. The countries are looking for alternative fuel source with less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. They also want to achieve energy security by reducing their dependence on crude oil imports.

“In terms of both value and volume, starch-based feedstock is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Starch-based feedstock for bioethanol production is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value as well as volume. The growth of this feedstock is attributed to the high production of corn crop in the US. Corn is the most widely used starch-based feedstock for bioethanol production, owing to its large-scale availability. In addition to bioethanol, starch-based feedstock also produces co-products, such as corn syrup, distilled dried grains, and animal feed. Thus, producers are opting for the use of corn or starch-based feedstock in bioethanol production.

“Transportation end-use industry segment is projected to lead the bioethanol market from 2020 to 2025.”
The use of gasoline in vehicles releases large amount GHGs in the atmosphere, causing air pollution and global warming. Bioethanol is mixed with petroleum and the fuel-blend burns more efficiently and lower the carbon emission rate of the vehicles. Bioethanol is also cheaper than petroleum, and thus countries are trying to use it as an alternative fuel to reduce their crude oil dependency; and thus, boosting the bioethanol consumption in the transportation end-use industry in the process.

“In terms of both value and volume, the North American market is projected to contribute to the maximum market share during the forecast period.”
In terms of value, the North America region is projected to be the largest market for bioethanol market from 2020 to 2025 due to large production facilities and more fuel consumption in countries, including the US, Canada, and Mexico. The demand is supported by mandating the use of higher ethanol blends in the US and Canada. This will increase the demand for bioethanol in the market.
