Ethanol Fuel Production industry trends (2014-2019)

poll Average industry growth 2014–2019: 0.5%

The Ethanol Fuel Production industry is running on fumes. The industry has struggled to maintain market share over the past five years as the cost competitiveness of ethanol-blended fuel (EBF) has been squeezed by lower world crude oil prices and falling demand from local petroleum refiners. Government subsidies have been the principal factor supporting the industry. For much of the past decade, local ethanol producers were paid a Federal Government rebate to fully compensate the fuel excise under the Ethanol Production Grants Program. This program ceased at the end of 2014-15, and the government subsequently introduced a special excise regime for the industry. The excise started at 0.0 cents per litre (cpl) on ethanol produced in 2015-16, and will c...

The Ethanol Fuel Production industry is undergoing major changes to its regulatory and operating environment. The industry has endured significant revenue and production declines since its revenue peak in XXX-XX. However, several factors point to favourable growth prospects for local ethanol producers. For example, the Federal Government will continue to support the industry through fuel excise relief, and sales of ethanol blended fuel (EBF) will continue to be mandated in both New South Wales and Queensland. Local producers are unlikely to be disadvantaged by declining global crude oil prices over the next five years and the price competitiveness of EBF may improve against regular unleaded petroleum (RULP). A projected increase in production by the...
