Phthalate plasticizers are losing ground to non-phthalate plasticizers. Some companies are avoiding the use of phthalates in their products to reduce the risk of liability. Citrate esters derived from citric acid are also being used to replace phthalate plasticizers. For example, IHS Chemical expects global phthalate demand to grow by about 2% per year, whereas non phthalate plasticizers will post 7% growth.


The Business Research Company expects the global ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemicals market to grow to $556 billion in 2020. Asia was the largest region in the ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemical market in 2016, accounting for $203 billion. Asia was the largest market because of the presence of many construction, transportation, electrical and electronic companies catering to both its own population and development and to its overseas sales.
The chart below shows the year-on-year growth of the global ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemical market during 2016 - 2020.


According to The Business Research Company’s Chemicals Consultant, Yogesh Bathula, ethyl alcohol is being used as a motor fuel in some countries. It is also known as ethanol. Ethyl alcohol used for fuel is being blended into gasoline at concentrations of 5% to 10%. Mostly sugar cane and corn is used to produce ethanol. For example, ethanol has replaced methyl tertiary butyl ether as a gasoline component and 50% of cars in Brazil are using 100% ethanol as fuel. Ethanol-only engines and flex fuel engines are also adding to this market.

Archer Daniels Midland Co. was the largest company in the ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemicals market with revenues of $ 6.282 billion from corn processing segment’s bioproducts for the financial year 2015. Archer Daniels Midland Co.’s growth strategy is it to sell its ethanol assets to buy a corn wet mill in Morocco from Tate & Lyle in the latest effort to boost its footprint in the sweetener and starch market after expanding in Eastern Europe. Archer Daniels Midland Co is investing for substantial improvements and expansions to its port facilities in Puerto San Martin in the Argentine state of Santa Fe, enhancing the company’s capability to export grain and other agricultural products from the region.

Ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemicals are a broad class of substances containing carbon and its derivatives. Many of these chemicals contain hydrogen with or without oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and other elements. They exist in either carbon chain or a carbon ring form. Acetic acid, methanol, ethyl alcohol, formaldehyde, citric acid, aromatic polymers and other basic organic chemicals are part of this segment and find their applications in drugs, pesticides, plastics, cosmetics and other products.

The ethyl alcohol and other basic organic chemicals industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing basic organic chemicals except petrochemicals, industrial gases and synthetic dyes and pigments.

Ethyl Alcohol Manufacturing

Non-potable ethyl alcohol is an important industrial chemical; it is used as a solvent, in the synthesis of other organic chemicals and as an additive to automotive gasoline (forming a mixture known as a gasohol). It is used in the production of cosmetics, drugs, and other products.

Potable ethyl alcohol is the intoxicating ingredient of many alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine, and distilled spirits.

Ethyl alcohol manufacturers procure grains of raw materials such as sugar, starch and cellulose from corn and sugarcane producers and process them. The manufactured product is then stored, marketed and finally distributed to end users like chemicals, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and fuel distribution companies.

Cyclic Crude, Intermediate and Gum and Wood Chemical Manufacturing

The cyclic crude, intermediate and gum and wood chemical manufacturing industry distils wood or gum into products such as tall oil and wood distillates, distilling coal tars, manufacturing wood or gum chemicals, such as naval stores, natural tanning materials, charcoal briquettes, and charcoal (except activated) and manufacturing cyclic crudes or cyclic intermediates (hydrocarbons, except aromatic petrochemicals) from refined petroleum or natural gas.

All Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing

The 'all other basic organic chemical manufacturing industry' comprises establishments that manufacture basic organic chemical products such as fatty acids, gum and wood chemicals, plasticizers and synthetic sweeteners. The 'all other basic organic chemical products' category excludes aromatic petrochemicals, industrial gases, synthetic organic dyes and pigments, gum and wood chemicals, cyclic crudes and intermediates, and ethyl alcohol.
