Industrial alcohols are derived by blending and modifying chemicals with natural gas and petroleum products. They usually vary from pure ethyl alcohol to isopropanol, methanol, and glycerol. Amongst these, ethyl alcohol is employed in the food and beverage (F&B) industry to produce alcoholic beverages as it is volatile, flammable, clear, and colorless with a characteristic odor. In addition, isopropanol is widely used in hand wipes, disinfectants, hand sanitizers, and spray-in-air or ultrasonic products on account of its anti-bacterial properties. Nowadays, several manufacturers are introducing a range of consistent, high-quality, non-genetically modified organisms (GMO), organic, and other specialty alcohols.
Industrial Alcohols Market Trends:
The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the surging need for surface disinfectants in hospitals, medical centers, and public places are positively influencing the demand for industrial alcohols across the globe. It can also be attributed to the widespread use of hand sanitizers to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Moreover, they are employed in the pharmaceutical industry as a carrier for medicinal drugs, such as cough preparations, iodine solutions, decongestants, and antibiotics. This, coupled with the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, is catalyzing the demand for medicines and industrial alcohols. Apart from this, industrial alcohols play a significant role in manufacturing flavors and extracts, food dyes, candy glazes, yeast, sprays, and animal feed supplements. Therefore, the emerging trend of convenience and packaged food products is driving the market. In addition, they are utilized in the formulation of deodorants, perfumes, colognes, lotions, mouthwashes, soaps, and shampoos. This, in confluence with the increasing focus on personal health and hygiene, is expanding the application of industrial alcohols in the personal care industry worldwide.
