Ethyl Alcohol remained the market leader due to its vast industrial applications, followed by methyl alcohol

Covering the largest market share, ethyl alcohol works as an excellent disinfectant, owing to which it is used in industrial disinfectants and cleansing agents. Dominating both in value and volume terms, ethyl alcohol finds applications across a wide variety of industries. Food-grade ethyl alcohol is used in food applications. There are also fuel-grade ethyl alcohols available at varying concentrations, which are used as a blend in gasoline. Along with ethyl alcohol, methyl alcohol is also used as an additive in fuels to increase efficiency.

Fuel segment remained the major application area for industrial alcohol during the review period.

The most common application areas for industrial alcohol are fuel, pharmaceuticals, food ingredients (except beverages), personal care products, chemical intermediates & solvents, and other applications, which include home care products and reagents. Application in the fuel segment cornered the largest share of industrial alcohol followed by chemical intermediates & solvents. The energy sector is the main industry where a majority of alcohol is used in the form of biofuel. Ethyl alcohol and isobutyl alcohol are the two alcohol types used majorly in the fuel segment.

Fermentation has been the most adapted production technique for ethyl alcohol.

While the production of industrial alcohol is a multi-step procedure, there are two major process types involved- fermentation method and synthetic method. Fermentation by far has been the most adapted technique for the production of ethyl alcohol, while other alcohols are produced using the synthetic method from chemical reagents. Industrial fermentation processes are conducted with selected microorganisms under extremely controlled conditions with carefully adjusted nutrient concentrations. Only ethyl alcohol and isobutyl alcohol are produced at a commercial level through this process. All types of industrial alcohol, such as ethyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, and isobutyl alcohol, can be produced through the synthetic method.
