Food Grade Alcohol Market Growth & Trends

The global food grade alcohol market size is expected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2030, as per the new report by Grand View Research, Inc. registering a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period. The demand is attributed to the increase in consumption of food & beverages by the consumers and the increase in application in personal care, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.

Alcohol is an important ingredient for manufacturing extracts, flavors, yeast, and vinegar. The demand for ethanol has increased in the food industry to expand the shelf life of the product, driven by the changing habits and adoption of ready-to-eat food. The product plays an important role in the healthcare industry owing to its use in the preparation of medicines and sterilizing various medical equipment before use.

Changing consumer behavior and the quality of raw materials used in the production of the product have a significant impact on industry dynamics. Corn, barley, wheat, barley malt, and milo are the most common raw materials used in the manufacturing of the product. These are natural sources that are fermented and then distilled to produce beverages. Because raw resources are so reliant on nature, the industry must evaluate climate change and yield trends in order to efficiently forecast the supply of these products.

Personal care products signify a large category of products that are consumed on a day-to-day basis by a large population. The changing demographics coupled with rising awareness about new beauty trends due to the growth of social media has led to rising demand for these products. The product finds application in product categories such as cleaning formulations, anti-aging creams, anti-inflammatory, anti-wrinkle, anti-dandruff and moisturizing products.
