Bio-alcohols are sustainable organic chemicals with important physiological properties that are produced using biomass. They are volatile, combustible and have low viscosity and toxicity with a high energy density. Although several bio-alcohols are available in the market, bioethanol is gaining the most traction as a clean, renewable energy source as it is produced through the fermentation of microorganisms and enzymes with sugars, starches or cellulose. At present, bio-alcohols are utilized to manufacture textiles, paints, tarnishes, glues, diluents and perfumes worldwide.
Biomass is a biodegradable, sustainable, economical and renewable resource that offers various environmental benefits. This, in confluence with the growing environmental consciousness, is resulting in the increasing utilization of bio-alcohols in the production of biofuels. Moreover, due to the rising trend of organic and natural products, several key players are using bio-alcohols in the manufacturing of cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Apart from this, rapid urbanization, especially in developing economies, inflating crude oil prices, stringent emission regulations imposed by the governments of various countries and escalating energy consumption are some of the other factors propelling the market growth. Furthermore, rising disposable incomes, and the burgeoning automotive industry, are positively influencing the sales of sports cars, which, in turn, is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), governments of several countries, along with international organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO), are encouraging hand sanitization practices, which has resulted in the surging demand for hand sanitizers. These sanitizers have significant percentages of bioethanol, which is impelling the market growth.
