Key market drivers fueling the global biofuels & biodiesel market growth:

  • Growing interest in clean and alternative fuels
  • Fluctuating petroleum prices
    • Petroleum prices are affected by multiple factors, majorly dependent on the decisions associated with its output by key producers such as the OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries), independent petroleum states like Russia, and oil-producing firms.
    • In addition, petroleum prices also observed a surge from $40.76 per barrel in 2016 to $57.72 per barrel in 2021. The highest ever recorded price between these years was $69.78 in 2018.
    • The high and volatile prices have further increased the awareness regarding the harmful effects of fossil fuels on global climatic changes. As a result, an evident shift towards the usage of biofuels is witnessed.
  • Increasing availability of feedstock

Key growth restraining factors:

  • Higher cost of production of biofuels compared to conventional fuels
  • Stringent rules and regulations over the way of producing biofuels
    • Various regulations by different governments restrict the method of biofuels’ production and import across countries, with certain exceptions.
    • This includes the RED (Renewable Energy Directive) formulated by the European Union (EU) for all countries under its radar. In accordance with the RED, minimum greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are mandatory for all conventional fuels. Hence, the regulation promotes the production of biofuels.
    • Similarly, different countries have various regulating standards, including the Renewable Fuel Standard, the United States, the Biofuels Association of Australia, and the National Policy on Biofuels, India.

The report on the global biofuels & biodiesel market includes the segmentation analysis of type, feedstock, and application.

Market by Feedstock:

  • Ligno Celluloses
    • Over the forecasted period, ligno celluloses is set to be the fastest-growing segment under the feedstock category, expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.05%.
    • This feedstock type is considered the most abundant renewable biomass on Earth. It is also an alternative source for the production of renewable fuels as well as chemicals.
    • While the concentration of lingo cellulose in agricultural plant residues comprises 50%-90% of the total organic matter, biomass constitutes two carbohydrate polymers, namely cellulose and hemicelluloses.
  • Syngas/Biomass/MSW
  • Algae
  • Sugar and Starches
  • Oil and Fats
  • Other Feedstock

Geographically, the global biofuels & biodiesel market has been segmented on the basis of nineteen major countries, which includes:

  • Canada
  • Germany
    • Germany is anticipated to be the fastest-growing market, projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.19% over the forecasted years.
    • In 2019, the country’s production of biofuels accounted for 72.81 thousand barrels per day, and the production of biodiesel equated to 62.29 thousand barrels per day in the same year.
    • Biofuels continue to observe significant growth in Germany. Companies supplying fuel in the country are also obligated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a certain percentage.
    • In addition, the new laws and regulations further encourage the use of more advanced biofuels.
