Global Ethanol-based Vehicle Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An ethanol-based vehicle is a car that runs on fuel made from ethanol, a type of alcohol. Ethanol is made by fermenting crops such as corn, sugarcane, or wheat. It can also be made from recycled waste materials such as paper or cardboard.


Trucks are vehicles, which are used to carry bulk quantities of goods. They have the ability to transport products at a faster rate than other vehicles. Trucks can be categorized into two types: heavy-duty and medium-duty trucks. The demand for ethanol is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to its use in gasoline as an additive for improving fuel efficiency and reducing carbon emissions in automobiles, which is anticipated to drive market growth over the next seven years.


Cars are the most significant component in Ethanol-based Vehicle (E/V) market. The demand for cars is directly proportional to the growth of E/V market. Cars are used as an alternative fuel for transportation purpose, which is made from corn and other grains.

Application Insights:

Passenger cars were the major application segment and accounted for over 60.0% of the global ethanol-based vehicle market in 2017. The segment is expected to witness significant growth on account of increasing demand for passenger vehicles from developed economies such as U.S., Germany, France and UK coupled with growing population in developing countries including China, India, Brazil and Mexico.

Commercial vehicles are expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand from developing countries such as Brazil, Argentina Indonesia etc., where sugarcane is a major raw material source which can be used instead of fossil fuels to power commercial vehicles on roads resulting in saving of costs associated with fuel imports & exports along with reducing pollution caused due to smoke emissions during combustion process.

The others application category includes two-wheelers.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the largest market for ethanol-based vehicles in 2016, accounting for more than 40.0% of the global share. The region has been witnessing increasing demand for fuel efficient and cleaner vehicles since past few years on account of stringent government regulations and policies regarding carbon emissions and fuel consumption. In addition, growing popularity of electric cars is expected to further boost the growth over the forecast period.

Europe accounted second largest market in 2016 owing to high adoption rate of advanced technologies across various industries especially automotive industry coupled with presence of major car manufacturers such as BMW Group, Ford Motor Company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., Mercedes-Benz AG Daimler AG etc that are involved in research & development activities related to Ethanol Vehicles (EVs).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for ethanol-based fuels from the transportation sector as a result of stringent fuel emission norms by regulatory authorities across the globe.
  • Stringent government regulations and subsidies promoting the use of biofuels, which is expected to drive the growth of the ethanol-based vehicle market over the forecast period.
  • Growing demand for alternative fuel vehicles due to rising concerns over environmental pollution and global warming is anticipated to boost market growth in near future.
