The transportation industry is heavily dependent upon fossil-based fuels, such as gasoline and natural gas that causes an extensive increase in greenhouse gas emissions over the years. Therefore, the transportation industry is steadily moving towards low-carbon alternatives such as biofuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Biofuels can significantly enhance energy security and reduce petroleum import dependence. Today Renewable Energy accounts for around 14% of global energy demand and 73% of which comes from Biofuels. Bioethanol has risen as one of the most significant biofuels in the transportation sector due to its ability to offer sustainable mobility and significantly reduce GHG emissions. Several countries, including Brazil, and China, are increasingly adopting bioethanol to curb rising air pollution concerns. New developments and governments' incentives will further boost the production and adoption of biofuels. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), Global biofuel production in 2019 was 162.8 billion L.
The market is segmented based on type into biochemical and thermochemical out of which, the biochemical segment is anticipated to grab the largest share by the end of 2021 on account of efficient and cost-effective conversion process.
On the basis of application, the automotive segment in the lignocellulosic feedstock-based biofuel market is projected to grow with a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the fact that highest consumers of fuel based vehicles in the world and policies and norms that mandated countries to use biofuels.
Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa region. The market in the Asia Pacific is predicted to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing awareness about the waste management system and increasing demand for fuel-based vehicles in the region. Furthermore, in 2021, the market in North America is evaluated to occupy the largest share in terms of revenue, owing to a large number of fuel-based vehicles in the region. The US and Canada have already mandated the use of biofuel. The market in Europe is also anticipated to occupy a significant share in the lignocellulosic feedstock-based biofuel market on account of its policies and environmental norms that mandated the use of biofuels in vehicles, to lower the greenhouse gas emission rate. As per the analysis of the European Biomass Industry Association, bioethanol production capacity has been increased in the past few years. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
