Wood pellet, a solid eco-friendly fuel, is produced by densifying and crushing waste wood. Wood pellet, a type of biofuel, is made from compressed organic matter or biomass. Wood pellets can be burned with high combustion efficiency pellets, which are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content (below 10%) that allows them to be burned with high combustion efficiency.

They exhibit several benefits such as water preservation, weed control, reducing * preventing soil erosion, supporting growth of natural seeds, preservation of soil moisture, and improving fertility & health of the soil. Furthermore, they are renewable, clean-burning, and cost-effective for home heating. Apart from heating and power generation, wood pellets are used for the horse bedding purpose.

  • The lockdowns have caused delays in power projects due to supply chain disturbances with solar & wind projects, unavailability of manpower, and issues in project financing.
  • Global climate change issues have additionally raised awareness of the requirement to scale back the employment of fossil fuels in favor of low-emission power sources.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Increase in demand for recyclable and eco-friendly energy sources for generating power is projected to support revenue growth of the market. This is attributed to the fact that these pellets emit lower carbon as compared to other fossil fuels. The demand for wood pellets in fueling power plants for electricity generation is projected to offer significant growth opportunities, owing to rise in number of power plants across the globe.  Wood ash is used as a fertilizer for soil. Moreover, surge in demand for renewable energy generation and increase in preference for wood pellets as an energy generation source and for heating purpose in residential sector across the globe boost the growth of the wood pellets market.

However, direct exposure to wood dust, which is generated during the process of manufacturing can cause severe health issues, including allergic reactions and skin irritations, thereby hampering the growth of the target market. Moreover, lack of awareness related to product in developing nations and price instability due to fluctuations in raw material cost, influenced by weather conditions and changing regulatory norms governing wood cultivation are likely to hamper the growth of market. In addition, high cost of a wood pellet stove acts as a challenge for the wood pellets market growth.

Rise in demand for these pellets in the commercial energy generation industry in economies of Asia Pacific, including China and Japan, is providing a push to the regional market. Wood pellets have several applications in chemical industry, where it is used as a biomass solid fuel. North America market for wood pellets is expected to have substantial revenue share of the global market, owing to establishments of new production plants of the wood pellet by manufacturers. Residential heating is one of the prominent applications of the product. Easy availability of wood pellet fuel feedstock and low cost of production have led to its higher consumption in the industrial sector. Rise in prices of fossil fuels and natural gas further fuels the market growth.

Recent developments, expansions, acquisitions

Pinnacle Renewable Holdings signed an agreement with Tolko Industries Ltd. to construct a wood pallets manufacturing facility in Alberta, Canada. The wood pellet facility is anticipated to commence operation in the fourth quarter of 2020.
