Global Biofuel Market

Industry Overview

According to Goldstein Research, Biofuel Industry is expected to reach more than USD 246.52billion by 2024 from USD 168.18billion in 2016, growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 4.92% over the forecast period 2016-2024. First-generation biofuel, also known as starch-based ethanol, represents the vast majority of biofuel that is being added, as a 10% combination, into gasoline today. For the most part, in the US, it is derived from corn. However, key challenge for evolving the next generations of biofuels is obtaining economical feedstock. Feedstock cost adds 80 percent to 90 percent of the final fuel price for most procedures and is critical to the economic feasibility of future generations of biofuels.

Global biofuel market segmentation has been carried out on the basis of biofuel form, by product type, by feedstock, by processes, by end users and region. Biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) accounts for the majority share of renewables in global energy demand for road transport. Further, demand for bioenergy in the transportation sector is majorly propelled by blending mandates in major economies and by sustained fuel use across the globe. Global biofuel market is further expected to be driven by the environmental concerns over carbon emissions which are pushing the government authorities to develop stringent policies for a better livelihood.

Key Takeaways

  1. The U.S. and Brazil produced about 85% of the world’s ethanol in 2016
  2. In the U.S., ethanol is mostly derived by treating and fermenting the starch in corn kernels into a high-purity alcohol—92% of ethanol was derived from corn in 2016
  3. Biodiesel from algae is an area of constant research. Algae could theoretically produce 10 to 300 times more fuel per acre than other crops
  4. Globally, typical cropland and irrigation water use for biofuels is projected to remain under 5% in 2030. However, the influences of growing biofuel crops differ extensively owing to regional differences in climate and farmland availability
  5. World biofuels production increased by 3.5% in 2017, well below the 10-year average of 11.4%, but the fastest for three years
  6. By fuel type, global ethanol production grew by 3.3%, contributing over 60% to total biofuels growth
