Driving Factors

Several developed and developing countries are implementing mandatory biofuel policies and setting biofuel targets to improve energy security and contribute to climate change mitigation, as well as to help develop the agriculture sector. Mandates and incentives for blending biofuels with fossil fuels contribute significantly to the continued growth of biofuel production and use. The majority of biofuels are currently consumed in combination with fossil fuels at low percentages. The demand for biofuel has increased significantly over the last decade as a result of policies such as the European Union's Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and the Fuel Quality Directive, which have regulated the required biofuel share for the transportation sector. Furthermore, Government policies and targets are expected to have a significant impact on bioenergy development. The most significant deployment is expected in areas with access to biomass resources and policies to phase out coal-fired boilers to improve air quality, which will drive demand for the bioenergy market.


Restraining Factors

The biomass supply chain is one of the most important drivers of large-scale bioenergy production. In many cases, obtaining initial funding for new developments on specific energy crops is a significant challenge. The majority of productions rely on complex transformation chains connected to feeding and food markets. The supply chain encompasses many different aspects, including biomass cultivation and harvesting, as well as treatment, transportation, and storage.


Market Segmentation

The global bioenergy market share is classified into type and technology.


  • The biomass & renewable municipal waste segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global bioenergy market during the forecast period.    

Based on the type, the global bioenergy market is categorized into biomass & renewable municipal waste, biogas, and liquid biofuels. Among these, the biomass & renewable municipal waste segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global bioenergy market during the forecast period. In this segment, biomass refers to waste that can be used to generate heat or power through combustion. Renewable municipal waste, on the other hand, is defined as organic garbage that includes rotten vegetables, fruits, and other food items. Organic waste, a subset of municipal solid waste (MSW), produces methane through processes such as pyrolysis/gasification, incineration, anaerobic digestion, and landfilling. There is an increase in waste-to-energy technology and demand for biomass. Anaerobic digestion and landfills produce biogas, which is primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide. The use of biogas has several advantages over the use of various fossil fuels in a variety of applications, including domestic stoves, CHP plants, transportation, and various commercial services such as greenhouses, which drives market growth in the biogas segment.


  • The fermentation segment is expected to hold a significant share of the bioenergy market during the forecast period.    

Based on the technology, the global bioenergy market is categorized into gasification, fast pyrolysis, fermentation, and other technologies. Among these, the fermentation segment is expected to hold a significant share of the bioenergy market during the forecast period due to its mature and widely accepted technology around the world. Fermentation produces over 98% yield due to its widespread use in industry and processes that require low temperature and pressure, with alternative feedstock options such as Jatropha, animal fats, sludge, or waste cooking oil on the rise, combined with a commercial value of co-products and tax incentives on biodiesel; these technologies are gaining popularity in the early years of the forecast period. The biomass gasification segment's critical market consumers include small and large industries, the commercial sector, and rural communities.
