Why are Future Projections for Vinasse Brighter than Historical Trends?

From 2015-2019, the vinasse market expanded at the rate of 3.1%. Sales for use in fertilizers accounted for more than 70%, with high usage in sugarcane fields. Vinasse is full of nutrients and beneficial minerals, including potassium, calcium, nitrogen, and phosphorus, which supports its use in the crop protection industry. High protein enrichment in vinasse enables it to be used as an animal feed additive and fodder. It also contains sulfate, magnesium, and micronutrients such as iron, zinc, and copper that provide high energy levels to livestock, thus increasing its usage in the animal feed industry.

Further, increased technological advancements related to using vinasse for energy production over the years has gained traction, by using vinasse being a renewable energy resource. Moreover, the trend of organic farming in developing countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and Thailand is anticipated to propel demand for vinasse from the fertilizer industry, with value expected to reach close to US$ 830 Mn by the end of 2030. Overall, the vinasse market is expected to expand at a value CAGR of around 4.5% through 2030.

How is Increasing Demand for High Yielding Fertilizers Favoring Vinasse Manufacturers?

Growing demand from the food industry has caused farmers to look for fertilizers that can increase their yield and crop cultivation to gain high profitability. This has also increased focus on maintaining the quality of crops and intensifying production on current croplands. Moreover, there is rising demand for fertilizers having adequate levels of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium, which are essential nutrients for plants and help increase crop yield.

Vinasse is packed with essential nutrients such as potassium, calcium, nitrogen, and phosphorus, which are required for crop protection and increasing crop yield. Use of vinasse as a fertilizer helps restrain the breeding of soil pathogens and reduces plant diseases, thus promoting high yield.

  • Gyor Distillery and Refinery Co. offers vinasse to be used as a fertilizer that has a large amount of nitrogen and potassium. It provides a good growing media for microorganisms, and promotes degradation that offers increased yield and crop quality.


Why is Application of Vinasse Increasing across Regions?

Disposal of vinasse without treatment has gained attention over the recent years, as it is generally considered as a waste product in many countries and its disposal raises environmental concerns. Increasing ethanol production has given rise to a rise in vinasse volume produced, with around 10 to 15 liters of vinasse produced for every liter of ethanol.

Environmental concerns regarding the use of vinasse have given rise to regulatory frameworks in some countries. Direct discharge of vinasse in flowing waters is banned in many countries, owing to the possibility of contaminating the water bodies and groundwater.

However, many countries are also working to develop various programs for the sustainable management of vinasse. This is increasing its application across various industries such as fertilizers, animal feed, energy production, brick manufacturing, fermentation practices, and others. Increased application of vinasse has helped manufacturers achieve better disposal and management, thus creating opportunity for increased sales and expansion.

What are the Factors Restraining the Growth of Vinasse in Global Market?

Vinasse has a rich content of organic matter and potassium, which is needed for making plant fertilizers. In dominant ethanol producing countries such as Brazil and Argentina, it is widely used as a fertilizer and sprayed across sugarcane fields, owing to its low cost and easy availability.

However, high volumes of vinasse may have some harmful effects, such as it can lead to increased composition of nitrogen and potassium in the soil, which are its main chemical components. Long-term use of vinasse on a particular land piece can also promote soil alterations such as improved aggregation, separation of mineral elements, and contamination of ground water reserves.

Country-wise Analysis

Why does Brazil Account for the Largest Market Share in Latin America?

Brazil is the second-largest ethanol producer in the world, and largest producer of sugarcane ethanol. Vinasse is a byproduct of sugarcane and sugar beet ethanol production.
