  • July 2020: Italian biogas plant developing company BTS Biogas SRl announced a collaboration with Engie SA to develop renewable natural gas projects throughout Europe. The duo is determined to build and manage facilities that make use of organic wastes only.

Biogas Plant Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The biogas plant market is estimated to garner a large revenue and grow at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing rate of pollution around the world, which in turn is giving rise to the environmental concerns associated with the reduction of carbon emissions. According to the World Health Organization, 91% of the world’s population reside in places where air quality index exceeds the WHO guidelines. Moreover, 4.2 million deaths occur every year as a result of exposure to outdoor air pollution. In addition, as fossil fuels are limited in quantity and are widely consumed for various purposes, the emphasis on alternative environment-friendly fuels that produce imperishable form of energy is expected to witness growth. This is another factor considered to drive market growth in the upcoming years. Furthermore, the growing adoption of Paris climate change agreement by a large number of countries is also projected to increase the usage of biogas in the near future, in order to minimize the implications of global warming.

The market is segmented by application into electricity generation, biofuel, heat generation, and others, out of which, the electricity generation segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the biogas plant market on account of rising demand for electricity and growing electrification of transport. As per the data provided by International Energy Agency (IEA), the total energy consumption in the world increased by 856 TWh from 2017 to 2018. The values for the same were 21,460 TWh and 22,316 TWh in the respective years. Along with these, increasing disposable income of people around the world coupled with escalating usage of digitally connected devices is also evaluated to boost growth of this market segment in the future. Additionally, on the basis of type, the segment for small digesters is assessed to witness the highest growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing implementation of these type of biodigesters in rural areas of developing countries to reduce dependency on LPG, natural gas and other hydrocarbon fuels.CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption Image

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government-imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.

Global Biogas Plant Market Regional Synopsis

On the basis of geographical analysis, the biogas plant market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa. The market in the Asia Pacific region is estimated to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period on the back of ample availability of organic waste in countries, namely India, China and Thailand.
