Extra neutral alcohol (ENA), also known as absolute alcohol, is a highly concentrated food grade alcohol, which can be produced from grain, sugarcane, corn, sugar beets, or other plant material. In Africa, it is majorly produced from sugarcane by fermentation of sugarcane juice and molasses with yeast, as it is the most economical process. It contains 96% alcohol by volume, and is majorly used in the production of potable alcohol. Extra neutral alcohol has a neutral smell and taste. It is used as a basic alcohol in the production of distilled spirits such as vodka, whisky, gin, cane, liqueurs, and other alcoholic beverages. The South Africa extra neutral alcohol market size is expected to reach $1,064 million by the end of 2023.

The growth of the extra neutral alcohol market is majorly driven by rise in consumption of alcoholic beverages. In addition, change in lifestyle & preference of consumers and the perception that consumption of alcohol is relaxing for the mind have led to increased consumption of alcoholic beverages. Moreover, rapid urbanization and increase in disposable income have enabled consumers to spend more on premium alcoholic beverages. Furthermore, change in attitude towards drinking, western influence, and easy access to alcoholic drinks are other prominent factors that have increased the consumption of alcohol among youth, thereby driving the market growth. Thus, increase in global consumption of alcoholic beverages significantly boosts the growth of the South Africa extra neutral alcohol industry.

Ethanol is widely used as an essential ingredient in the manufacturing of several personal care and cosmetics products such as perfumes, air fresheners, toiletries, hair sprays, and others. Moreover, it is used as a solvent in the production of some varnishes, lacquers, paints, and inks for the printing industry. It also finds applications in pharmaceutical products such as antiseptics, drugs, syrups, and medicated sprays. Thus, increase in applications of ethanol is further expected to drive the market growth. Ethanol is a by-product of sugarcane; hence, high production potential of sugarcane and its by-products in Africa support the market growth. However, higher excise duties, taxations, and implementation of stringent trade laws on ethanol hinder the growth of the extra neutral alcohol market. Furthermore, governments of various countries have drafted strict alcohol regulations, owing to rise in alcohol abuse in South Africa, which are expected to restrain the growth of the market in this region. The living conditions in Africa, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, are considerably impacted due to inadequate or limited energy supply. Under such circumstances, production of biofuels, biopower, and bioproducts using ethanol serves as an ideal option to meet the energy requirements. Thus, the development of first- or second-generation biofuels from ethanol is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market in future.

According to A new report titled,titled, South Africa Extra Neutral Alcohol Market by Territory Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023," the South Africa Extra Neutral Alcohol market size was $711 million in 2017, and is expected to reach $ 1,064 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.0% from 2017 to 2023. The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) dominated the South Africa extra neutral alcohol market in 2017, accounting for approximately half of the total revenue.

Extra neutral alcohol (ENA), also known as absolute alcohol, is a food grade alcohol, which is colorless and has a neutral smell and taste. It is largely produced using grain and molasses as the raw materials. ENA plants are usually based on the principles of multi-pressure-cascading techniques, and the process control is done by digital distributed control system. Extra neutral alcohol is used in the production of potable alcohols. In addition, it finds a wide range of applications in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries. In the pharmaceutical industry, extra neutral alcohol is a prime carrier for a whole spectrum of medicines, and is therefore used for processing a wide range of drugs. In the flavors and fragrance industry, dilute ethanol is used to produce distilled vinegar, flavor extracts, and concentrates for soft drinks and food products.

The growth of the extra neutral alcohol market is expected to be driven by increase in consumption of alcoholic beverages during the forecast period. Improved standard of living of consumers and increase in their disposable incomes are expected to boost the demand for premium alcohols, which in turn is anticipated to fuel the growth of the extra neutral alcohol market in future. Implementation of stringent regulations on alcohol use, owing to rise in alcohol abuse in South Africa is anticipated to hamper the growth of the extra neutral alcohol industry in this region. However, the development of first- or second-generation biofuels from ethanol is projected to create new opportunities for the market players.

Key Findings of the South Africa Extra Neutral Alcohol Market

In terms of value, the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) region is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period.
COMESA is expected to dominate the market, registering highest CAGR of 6.3% in terms of value.
Malawi is projected to show exponential growth in demand throughout 2023, growing at a CAGR of 8.7%, in terms of value.
