Restraints: Awareness about harmful effects of alcohol consumption

The Ministry of Health across various countries, namely, Australia, Brazil, the US, and India, has taken up initiatives on the harmful effects of alcohol consumption. The alcohol market is highly price sensitive; therefore, even a slight increase in its price by the government or any other regulatory bodies can have a significant impact on the consumption levels. This in turn may affect the grain alcohol market for beverage applications adversely, leading to a fall in demand.

The beverages segment, by application, is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

The beverages segment includes beer, wine, spirits, and other beverages such as ready-to-drink (RTDs), premixes, cider, and perry. Beer is the worlds most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea. Global beer consumption is mainly driven by growing disposable income, improvements in the quality of beer, marketing & advertising activities, and a steadily growing beer-consuming population base. Wine is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting grapes or other fruits. Spirits are alcoholic beverages produced by distillation of ethanol obtained by the fermentation of grains, fruits, or vegetables.

Europe is projected to account for the largest market during the forecast period

The European grain alcohol market is the largest in the world, and despite very high per capita consumption levels, market growth has remained attractive and stable. The presence of a large food & beverage industry offers the European grain alcohol market a prominent consumer base with opportunistic growth prospects. The market in this region is estimated to be driven by development in the Eastern & Southeastern European countries. Europe is the one of the largest markets for sugar polyols. As consumers’ demand for low-calorie food is high, the food industry prefers the use of sugar polyols, which are similar to sugar but with low-calorie value. These sugar polyols act as bulking agents, which provide the mass required and sweeten the product without adding any additional calories.
