Biochar Market Overview

Biochar plays a vital role in soil amendment by eliminating all the toxic elements and sand pollutants present in the soil. Bio-char prevents fertilizer runoff, controls and maintains the soil moisture, prevents soil leeching and clears the risk of soil erosion. Crop protection from floods and droughts is an important factor for the increasing usage of bio-char present in the soil. Bio-char application is the advanced agricultural technique used by modern farmers in different parts of the world. Biochar technology is rich in carbon and helps generate soil fertility on the infertile land.

Countries like North America and Europe have been observed a substantial rise in number of medium and large scale producers of bio-char, they are expected to play a crucial role in evolving the industry. However, limited awareness regarding the application of bio-char and its benefit is the major barrier for its market growth in developing countries of Asia Pacific and Middle East region. Biochar is a high quality product whose adoption is expected to increase in the coming years. This will, however, require lot of investment from biochar producers for the developing more sustainable and environment friendly methods of broadacre agriculture practices in the agro-industry. International market is comprised of both organized and unorganized producer of bio-char with the countries like Brazil, China, Japan and Mexico have a high dependence on agricultural production.

Market Size and Forecast

Biochar global market is estimated to reach USD 3149.12 million by 2027 with an expected CAGR of 13.20%. The global biochar market in 2017 was 354.9 kilotons. Biochar market in agriculture sector is expected to boom in near future with a CAGR of 13.05% by 2027. Along with biochar many new techniques are also expected to be introduced which are beneficial for the profit maximization and stabilization of the end use industries. Massive changes will be shown in energy sector which is expected to enlarge the biochair market i.e. energy and waste treatment application.
