Algae Biofuel Market Value & Growth Rate:

The Global Algae Biofuel Market is anticipated to reach USD 9.2 billion by 2026 growing with a CAGR of 9.0% from 2021-2026.

Algae Biofuel Market Scenario:

Over the last decade, the algae sector has struggled to stay afloat in the biofuel market. The global algae biofuel market growth has been stifled by the decommissioning of essential algae biofuel commercial projects. However, once the producers can overcome the primary constraints connected with raw material manufacturing, capital costs, and production quantities, the product has immense potential. The industry's high potential for producing bioethanol, biodiesel, drop-in biofuels, and hydrocarbons, together with manufacturer initiatives to commercialize the product, is projected to open new doors for the global algae biofuel market.

The growth of the detergent market in emerging economies, rising fuel demand from various end-use industries, increasing demand for green and sustainable energy sources, and increasing government initiatives for the adoption of renewable energy sources are all expected to boost the algae biofuel market in the forecast period of 2021-2026. On the other hand, the prevalence of low-cost fuel, rapid microorganism development, and high biodegradability would further expand the algae biofuel market throughout the projection period.

Algae Biofuel Market Drivers and Restraints:

The quick expansion of the biofuel industry in algae is due to the expanding demand for fuels in numerous end-use industries and the growing need for green and sustainable energy sources. Algae biofuel has emerged as a viable option for satisfying the world's low-carbon fuel needs. The fast-paced development of the transportation business in many parts of the world has given the algae biofuel market a substantial boost. The growing demand for low-cost fuels in the aviation industry is also a positive trend in the algae biofuel market. Over the projected period, the introduction of biofuel requirements worldwide is expected to drive manufacturers to invest more in R&D to create sustainable algae fuel production technologies. In 2016, the United States produced approximately 1.14 billion gallons of biofuel from various feedstocks, including animal fats and recycled seeds.

The great potential of algae to replace traditional biofuel raw material sources, combined with government mandates, is predicted to provide new avenues for product growth, which additional regions will adopt over the forecast period. As a result, there are various start-up enterprises in the market all around the world. However, most of these players are based in North America because of the region's strong government support and low technological obstacles.

To reduce their reliance on raw material suppliers, enterprises in the sector are expected to be integrated across the value chain. Furthermore, the global algae biofuel market is projected to anticipate manufacturer cooperation and partnerships to create huge product volumes at substitute competitive pricing. The rapid growth of the algae biofuel business can be attributed to several appealing properties of algae biofuel. First, algae biofuel production is practical due to promises of higher output than several currently utilized crop-based biofuels, high energy content, rapid microorganism growth, and high biodegradability.

Bioethanol, biodiesel, methane, jet fuel, bio-butanol, green diesel, and bio-gasoline are some biofuels that can be obtained. Second, concerns about developing emission-free biodegradable plastic have grown due to environmental contamination caused by the combustion of harmful plastic items. In addition, strict government regulations requiring plastics manufacturers to manufacture biodegradable plastics made from renewable energy resources, such as algae, rather than fossil fuels, have pushed plastics manufacturers to produce biodegradable plastics made from renewable energy resources algae. Bio-plastics are made from algae biomass instead of traditional plastics made from other chemical ingredients such as polyvinylchloride, polyethylene, and polypropylene. The algae biofuel market is being driven by increased government initiatives to introduce renewable energy sources. 

The global algae biofuel market growth is predicted to be slowed by costly capital expenditure in algae biomass and fuel production, high water demand for algae production, and a lack of technological innovation.

Recent Developments in the Global Algae Biofuel Market:

  • On August 24th, 2021, Indian scientists, have launched cost-efficient biodiesel from microalgae under the inspiring program of the ministry of science and technology. They further declared that biofuel produced from algae could have the lowest emissions in India in the future.

  • Algenol, along with Reliance Industries, has introduced the first Algenol algae production platform in India.

Algae Biofuel Market Segmentation: 

By Type

  • Biodiesel

  • Bioethanol

  • Methane

  • Jet fuel

  • Bio butanol

  • Green diesel

  • Bio gasoline

  • Others

Based on Type, Biodiesel dominated the global algae biofuel market in 2018, accounting for a large portion of total volume. This is primarily due to a growing emphasis on lowering fuel consumption and massive diesel-powered car emissions. Biodiesel is defined as a biodegradable, renewable fuel made from vegetable oils, animal fats, or restaurant grease. Biodiesel, like petroleum diesel, is used to power compression-ignition engines. The performance of biodiesel in cold weather is determined by the biodiesel blend, feedstock, and petroleum diesel characteristics. In general, biodiesel blends with lower biodiesel percentages operate better in cold conditions. Moreover, biodiesel can lower the emissions because CO2 emitted from biodiesel combustion is compensated by the CO2 intake from soybeans or other feedstocks utilized to produce the fuel.

By End user:

  • Aerospace

  • Transportation

  • Others

Based on end-user, the transportation segment dominates the global algae biofuel market in the upcoming years. Because algae have the potential to replace traditional diesel and petrol products, transportation is likely to be the essential application segment in the global algae biofuel market. In addition, the growing demand for biofuels in road transport applications, such as miniature trucks, minivans, light-duty vehicles, motorcycles, and passenger vehicles, is likely to push manufacturers to invest more in research and development to produce low-cost renewable fuel resources. Thus, these variables are expected to offer new market prospects for productivity growth in the transportation application over the projected period.

Algae Biofuel Market Regional Analysis: 

The Global Algae Biofuel Market Report includes the segmentation of Regions:

  • The algae biofuel market is predicted to increase significantly in North America. Consumers in the United States utilize gasoline for various purposes, including cars, sports vehicles, light planes, generators, and commercial trucks. The growing need for renewable energy resources to meet rising energy demand while reducing carbon footprints' environmental impact is likely to boost market growth over the forecast period.

  • Europe is projected to hold the significant global algae biofuel market share in the next six years. By 2020, the European government intends to mandate that 10% of transportation energy come from renewable sources, primarily biofuels. Because of the high demand for luxury vehicles, commercial trucks, and motorbikes, a substantial portion of the petroleum is used in transportation in the European region.

  • Because of the region's strong growth in the automobile industry, Asia Pacific is likely to be an important market for the product. In addition, the existence of massive economies such as China and India, which account for a significant portion of the world's population, is predicted to fuel demand for sustainable energy resources, opening up new opportunities for market expansion. For example, China is considered one of the top five producers of algae biomass, and it has made significant investments in algae-derived energy products like diesel, gasoline, and hydrogen. In addition, the Chinese government's increasing focus on reducing reliance on coal and other fossil fuel resources for transportation and industrial applications will likely bring up new industry opportunities.

  • Latin America

  • Middle East and Africa
