Due to its volatility, it is used as a major ingredient base to manufacture a wide range of alcoholic beverages. Ethanol is also popularly used as a preservative in the food industry, to increase the shelf life of the end products, and in manufacturing preservatives, colorings, or flavoring agents, and for coating food products, thereby, boosting the demand for food-grade alcohol in the global market. Moreover, the consumers' demand for food products made from natural ingredients also led the manufacturers to use ethanol as a natural flavoring agent.

North America is the Largest Market

Industrial food-grade alcohol also plays a substantial role in the manufacture of flavors and extracts, food dyes, yeast, and various sprays.
