Global Biofuels Outlook: Ethanol Supply and Demand

10 May 2017
With global gasoline demand expected to grow at a pace of 1.2% through 2040, ethanol’s contribution to the fuel pool is expected to gradually decline from current levels, reaching 5.6% in 2040. Due to the level of growth projected in the gasoline pool, this still implies an increase in ethanol demand of 200 thousand b/d (+12%) by 2040, including 150 thousand b/d (8.7 billion liters) of growth within the next decade.
