Biogas Market (By Application - Electricity & Heat, Vehicle Fuel, and Others) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023

 

Sources of green energy are increasingly being discussed, designed, and developed as nations are realizing the pressure of global warming and harmful effects of greenhouse gases. Owing to these reasons, biogas has become an integral part of the energy generation mix in most countries, as they are trying to reduce their dependence on conventional sources of energy. Biogas is produced by using municipal waste, plant material, agricultural waste, manure, green, waste sewage, or food waste. This renewable source of energy has a very low carbon footprint and it offers multiple benefits.

The report on the global biogas market gives an overview of the drivers, restraints, opportunities, and threats acting on this market. It assesses these with the help of a SWOT analysis. Furthermore, it also uses a Porter’s five forces analysis to gauge the threat from new entrants, threat of substitute products or services, bargaining power of customers, bargaining power of suppliers, and intensity of competitive rivalry. The report offers a lucid explanation of every intricate aspect of the market to help its readers make important decisions.

Overview of the Global Biogas Market

The global biogas market generated 22,488.0 KTOE in 2014 and is expected to generate 39,845.5 KTOE by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2015 to 2023 in terms of volume. This incredible growth can be attributed to the increasing greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions and their hazardous impact on the environment. Governments across the globe and several environmentalists are encouraging the usage of biogas, as it is a cleaner fuel than petroleum fuels. Owing to these reasons, several biogas plants will be set up across the globe in the coming years. The only factor restraining the growth of the global biogas market is the huge installation costs involved in the setup.
 
The global biogas market has been segmented on the basis of geography and applications. Biogas is used for generating electricity, heat, as a vehicle fuel, and for other minor applications.

TABLE 1 Global Biogas Market: Snapshot

 

 

Biogas is used as a fuel for various applications such as cooking, space heating, powering vehicles, and in electricity and heat generation. Biogas consists of 40% to 70% methane, 30% to 45% carbon dioxide, and small traces of nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide, and siloxanes. Biogas is produced from landfills, waste water treatment, agricultural waste, and municipal waste. Biogas is produced through different processes such as anaerobic digestion and fermentation of organic matter with little or no oxygen presence.

 

Biogas is a clean fuel and is gaining a significant market share in the global renewable energy portfolio. High emission levels from vehicles running on crude oil-based fuels combined with the exhausting crude oil reserves have compelled various governments and environmental organizations to develop and encourage the use of clean and eco-friendly fuels. The use of biogas as a transportation fuel is increasing in developed regions such as North America and Europe. Biogas is also used to produce electricity and heat in a CHP and can also be supplied to the natural gas pipeline.

 

The global biogas market is segmented on the basis of application and geography. The report is further segmented at country level. On the basis of application, the biogas market is classified into electricity & heat, vehicle fuel, and others. The electricity & heat application segment dominated the global biogas market in 2014. The overall consumption of biogas is anticipated to grow during the forecast period. The number of natural gas vehicles is likely to increase in the near future, which will boost biogas market. Many countries across the globe such as Sweden, China, Germany, India, Thailand, and Malaysia are developing their natural gas infrastructure to promote the use of natural gas vehicles. Germany has a substantial share of biogas in its energy mix. The country has a large number of operational biogas plants. Countries in Europe such as the U.K., Germany, and France are switching to more eco-friendly biogas fuel to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector.

 

Rising GHG emissions have boosted the adoption of clean fuel across the globe. Various government incentives and subsidies have encouraged companies to invest in the biogas infrastructure development. Several new biogas plants are expected to be constructed in the next few years. However, the growth of biogas market is hampered by requirement of high initial investments and installation costs of biogas plants.

 

Several players in the biogas market are vertically integrated companies. They are present across the value chain of biogas. High initial investments and availability of feedstock act as barriers for market entry for new players. Some of the global companies operating in the biogas market include Air Liquide Advanced Business & Technologies, Wärtsilä Corporation, Vanzetti Engineering S.r.l., Swedish Biogas International AB, Cryostar SAS, Gasrec Ltd., Biofrigas Sweden AB, Cryonorm BV, Scandinavian Biogas Fuels International AB, and EnviTec Biogas AG.
