Speak With Analyst Request Sample

Global consumption for biofuel is projected to reach US$58.3 billion gallons by 2020. The United States represents the largest market worldwide, with a 45.7% share of global consumption in 2015. Biofuels is a class of fuels whose energy is derived biologically from carbon fixation. They are derived from various conversion procedures from solid biomass, liquid fuels and various gases. Liquid produced from various oil-rich crops and are grown in many regions across the globe. Europe and Brazil are the major consumers of biofuels for electricity and transportation, while Asia Pacific is another growing region after Europe and North America. Countries such as China and India are prime consumers of bioenergy products such as biogas and bioethanol. 

Second generation biofuels yield more energy efficient output than conventional fossil fuels and are environment-friendly as well. Developing economies like China, India, and Russia are also experiencing steady growth and it is expected to increase substantially for the next six years. Liquid not only used in transport, but are also used in commercial heating processes. 

Some of the key manufacturing companies profiled in the report are Algenol Biofuels, Abengoa bioenergy, POET-DSM, GranBio, INEOS Bio, Inbicon, Clariant, ZeaChem, DuPont Industrial Biosciences and Fiberight LLC. Biofuels are projected to be another growing segment within the renewable energy market after wind energy segment, and it offers numerous opportunities for both new start-up companies and traditional companies, from the point of view to transfer their capabilities into this new growth market.It is also a broad and varied sector, covering a range of technologies at different stages of development.
