The United States Biodiesel Market Size is Anticipated to hold a significant share by 2033, Growing at a CAGR of 5.46% from 2023 to 2033. Increasing domestic production of biodiesel.


Market Overview

Biodiesel is a renewable, bio-based fuel designed to perform well in diesel engines while generating fewer pollutants and offering a more sustainable alternative to traditional diesel. Biodiesel, which is generally made from plant oils, animal fats, and used cooking oils, can be directly replaced or blended with petroleum diesel in many applications without requiring significant engine modifications. It has greater lubricity, biodegradability, and a significantly lower emissions profile, making it an excellent choice for the transportation industry, agriculture, and a variety of industrial uses. Biofuels are fuels derived directly or indirectly from organic matter, such as plant materials and animal manure. The most common biofuels are ethanol and biodiesel, which are used as replacements or additions to petroleum-based transportation fuels. Biofuels help to reduce reliance on imported petroleum, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and promote rural economic growth. The growing focus on lowering greenhouse gas emissions is the main factor driving the industry in the US. This can be related to the increased use of biodiesel due to stricter environmental laws.

Driving Factors

The rise in domestic manufacturing of various biodiesel feedstocks, such as animal fats, recycled cooking oil, and soybean oil, is one of the major factors propelling the U.S. biodiesel market. As these essential ingredients become more widely available domestically, the convenience of access and resulting lower costs have given biodiesel production a significant boost, which in turn has catalyzed the growth of the market as a whole. The market is further boosted by the inflow of strategic investments and the formation of profitable relationships within the sector. Major groups across the energy value chain, from technology developers to manufacturers and oil corporations, are actively involved in improving biodiesel manufacturing facilities.


Restraining Factors

Biodiesel production faces possible challenges due to limited agricultural land, rising demand for oil and fats, and an expanding population. Market growth is predicted to be negatively affected by different rules, restrictions, and volatility in crude oil prices. The high operational expenses associated with biodiesel pose a substantial barrier to the market, potentially impeding further growth.


Market Segmentation

The United States biodiesel market share is classified into feedstock and type.

  • The vegetable oils segment is expected to hold a significant market share through the forecast period  

The United States biodiesel market is segmented by feedstock into vegetable oils, animal fats, and others. Among these, the vegetable oils segment is expected to hold a significant market share through the forecast period. Vegetable oils are the principal feedstock for biodiesel production due to their significant oil content and ease of availability. The market is being propelled by rising demand for environmentally friendly fuels, as well as government measures to promote biofuel use. Furthermore, technological developments have improved the efficiency with which vegetable oils are converted to biodiesel, increasing their utilization.


  • The B20 segment is expected to hold a significant market share of the United States biodiesel market during the forecast period.
