Next Generation Biofuels Market Outlook - 2030

The global next generation biofuels market size was valued at $6.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $59.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 26.4% from 2021 to 2030. Biofuels are produced through contemporary biological processes, such as anaerobic digestion rather than a fuel produced by geological processes. Second-generation biofuels are produced from non-food crops such as organic waste, wood, biomass crops, and food crop waste, whereas third-generation biofuels are based on improvements in the production of biomass and employs engineered energy crops, such as algae as its feedstock. Algae-based biofuels are expected to be manufactured into a wide range of fuels, such as petrol, diesel, and jet fuel.

The next generation bio fuel market is majorly driven by rise in necessity to produce sustainable and clean energy, with negligible environmental impact. Second generation biofuel production technology allows manufacturing of commercially acceptable fuel that is developed with the help of inedible biomass. The key feedstocks that are used for next generation biofuels are non-food crop residues and agricultural residues, energy crops, wastes procured from forestry industry and algae. The key factors affecting the market growth of next generation biofuels are obtaining economical feedstock. However, feedstock cost contributes 80 to 90% of the final fuel cost which makes it difficult to increase the market growth. Moreover, production of next generation biofuels is experiencing growth in the countries with no or less petroleum reserves as it helps the countries to overcome spending toward import of biofuels.

Analyst Review

The next generation biofuels market is moving toward growth stabilization phase in its industry life cycle. The factors driving the growth of the market for next generation biofuels include rise in demand for transportation, power generation, and others. Biodiesel is a smooth renewable gas acquired from biomass. It is a long-chain mono-alkyl ester of fatty acid derived from vegetable oils and animal fat via the technique diagnosed as trans esterification that converts oils and fat into chemicals. Biochemical conversion of biomass entails uses of bacteria, microorganisms, and enzymes to breakdown biomass into gaseous or liquid fuels, consisting of biogas or bioethanol. Algae are diverse group of photosynthetic organisms. The production of biofuels start from the process of harvesting of algae, then extraction of oil, and finally the oil refined is used to produce biofuels.

The Asia-Pacific next generation biofuels market is expected to grow at the highest rate, owing to increase in investment in R&D activities to develop advanced biofuels. Australia, India, and China invest for the development of advanced biofuels. Other factors that are expected to drive the demand for the market growth in the Asia-Pacific are feedstock availability and rapid increase in number of production facilities.
