High Capital Investment, Explosion Risks Affect Market Growth

The biogas market is estimated to advance at a robust CAGR of 9% during the forecast period. However, the implementation of biogas is met with high capital investment for purchasing and installing biodigester. Stakeholders also need to comply with stringent safety and emission regulations, since the biodigester appears to be at explosion risk. As such, biogas is considered as a safe technology, and the concentration of methane is much less as compared to the LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas).

Companies in the biogas market are targeting rural communities to set up plants, as biogas helps in effective management of growing biomass volumes.

Funding from Public Authorities Encouraging Private Sector Investors to Expand Business

The biogas market is predicted to cross valuation of US$ 10.6 Bn by the end of 2030. Startups and companies are taking keen interest to understand financing and business models for biogas. Funding from public authorities is encouraging private sector investors to have a natural interest in investing in new plants, owing to promising potentials of a profitable economic framework.

It has been found that biogas plants that treat municipal bio-waste are more expensive to run as compared to agricultural biogas plants, since the municipal waste is contaminated with plastics and must be cleared prior to anaerobic digestion. Hence, companies in the biogas market are seeking finance from public authorities with a combination of revenue for the treatment of waste and a revenue for the sale of renewable gas or renewable electricity & heat.

Multi-gas Measuring Probes Optimize Process of Biomass Conversion

Responding to waste management issues and achieving low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are challenging. Companies in the biogas market are taking advantage of this opportunity to develop instruments that contribute to a circular economy. Vaisala Oyj- a Finland-based company that develops environmental and industrial measurement, is gaining recognition for its Vaisala MGP261, which is a multi-gas probe for measuring methane, carbon dioxide, and humidity in demanding environments.

Companies in the biogas market are boosting their R&D capabilities to develop instruments that optimize and monitor the entire process of biomass conversion by responding to changes in gas composition and humidity.

Remote Monitoring Systems for Small Scale Bio-digesters Reduce Operational Expenses

Stakeholders in the biogas market are gauging incremental opportunities in Africa and India. Connected Energy- a U.K.-based start-up specializing in smart metering technology is increasing efforts to reduce operational costs for energy service providers and increase localization of the value chain. Venture capitalists are empowering local companies to gain full control, while putting together their own product packages to make it available in local markets.

Companies in the biogas market are increasing their research efforts to develop remote monitoring systems for small-scale biodigester in order to collect data about what is being fed and highlight its faults. Such systems are lowering operational expenses of biodigester.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

South Africa is witnessing continuation of new domestic biodigester installations that are constructed by trainee technicians. As such, East Africa holds lucrative opportunities for companies in the biogas market. However, high operational costs and steady dominance of international companies are impacting these business opportunities. Hence, companies should develop remote monitoring systems that facilitate affordable and integrated communication of small-scale biodigester in case of any faults in the machinery. Biogas companies are introducing pay-per-unit metering in domestic households of East Africa. Remote monitoring systems are gaining popularity for their cost-efficient way of verifying and monetizing greenhouse gas emissions offset.
