The Asia-Pacific food grade alcohol market can be categorized into three categories: by type, by source and by application. On the basis of type, food-grade alcohol market is classified into ethanol and polyols. Ethanol commands a greater market share as it is widely used in the manufacture of alcoholic beverages. It is also used as a preservative to enhance the shelf life of end products along with manufacturing colours and flavours for food applications. It is highly volatile and so is used as a base in producing a diverse range of alcoholic beverages in the food industry. If we go by source, food-grade market is segmented into sugarcane & molasses, grains, fruits, and others which include rice and corn. Among these the sugarcane & molasses market segment dominates the market because of the increase in manufacture of ethanol from sugarcane and molasses. This can be further attributed to the continuously degrading price of raw sugar in global markets. Sugar cane and sugar beet plants are the most widespread and readily available sources of sucrose, which is fermented to deliver alcohol.
As far as volume, the beverages section is anticipated to develop at the most elevated rate in the vicinity of 2017 and 2022, because of the expansion in worldwide utilization of alcoholic beverages.
On the basis of geography, the Asia-Pacific dairy whiteners market has been segmented into China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Australia. Food-grade alcohol is utilized for producing alcoholic beverages as well as for food and healthcare and pharmaceutical products. Subsequently, as the interest for these consumables increments from end users, makers utilize food-grade alcohol for making creative food items. The Asia-Pacific region is assessed to drive the market with the expansion in demand for food-grade alcohol. The increased utilization of alcoholic beverages and convenience food products are essentially affecting the development of the market in this region, with the growing food-processing industry.
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market, in terms of both value and volume, in the global food-grade alcohol market, in 2017. This region encompasses developing economies such as China, Japan, and India, which are the largest consumers of food-grade alcohol in the world. The augmenting population and per capita income in India and China coupled with widespread availability of raw materials is expected to drive the food-grade alcohol market. India's food-grade alcohol market is expected to grow at the highest rate among the Asia-Pacific countries.
