Biodiesel Market Size, Trends & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

The size of the Global Biodiesel Market was around USD 46.79 Billion by revenue, at the end of 2021. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.87 % to reach close to USD 51.48 Billion in 2026, as mentioned earlier period. The Biodiesel Market has a decent growth pace in the global market, which is driven by the demand for the vegetable oil segment of the feedstock type in various applications and from numerous end-user industries.

Biodiesel Market Size

What are Biodiesel and its Applications?

Biodiesel is obtained from renewable feedstock like vegetable oils, animal fats, and others by utilizing a chemical procedure known as Transesterification that converts oil and fats into fatty acid methyl esters. It is employed as a substitute for petroleum diesel fuel or can be combined with petroleum diesel fuel with other parts. Biodiesel is efficient to decrease exhaust release when compared to petroleum diesel fuel. It is mainly employed in Automotive, Aviation, Industrial, Marine, Agriculture, and Mining. It is applied in aviation since biodiesel can decrease the release of carbon dioxide by the aviation business. It is also employed in many commercial flights and military defense aircraft. Biodiesel is used in the marine industry also as it is an excellent material as shipping fuel, being biodegradable, non-toxic, and mainly free of sulfur and aromatics. Biodiesel is employed as a replacement for standard heating oil (kerosene) in oil-fired heating boilers for both domestic and commercial applications. Biodiesel offers an opportunity for farmers to create demand for the crops they grow through on-farm. Farmers see that biodiesel is a high-quality product to utilize in their farm equipment.

Recent Developments

  • The government introduced a program for converting utilized cooking oil into biodiesel in 100 cities. State-run oil marketing businesses IndianOil, Bharat Petroleum, and Hindustan Petroleum recently launched a plan to make biodiesel made from utilized cooking oil in 100 cities across India.

  •  Clariant grows product portfolio for the European biofuel market. The company declared that additional capacity is on-stream in Yuncos, Spain, with newly developed purification products now present for local consumers. Swiss specialty chemicals business Clariant has fueled the supply of high-quality activated bleaching piles of earth to the edible oil and biofuel markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, with some more capacity in Spain and an extended product portfolio.

Market Drivers & Restraints in the Biodiesel Market 

The requirement for energy independence and rising environmental worries has driven the call for the biodiesel market globally. The product has the main feature to decrease greenhouse gas releases that were totally calculated to account for about 6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents. Also, it is biodegradable and assists in producing renewable liquid fuel for transportation purposes. Being domestic in nature, it decreases the dependency on the inherent lubricity, high flash point, and imported petroleum.Furthermore, government policies and tax incentives to boost product use will also have a significant impact on the global biodiesel market in the future years. The rising threat of fossil fuel depletion and require to include renewable sources of energy in the energy mix for a sustainable expansion is estimated to drive the call for biodiesel. The product can be made in the present diesel manufacturing facility, not like other biofuels, and that is supposed to affect the market on a positive note.

The rising call for biodiesel to replace conventional fossil fuel in automotive and power generation applications is estimated to drive market expansion. Capital investment and technology know-how are expected to be the significant parameters for the market players to rise themselves in the market. The market is fragmented due to the availability of several suppliers. There has been a critical problem of changes in crude oil costs in the past many years. These changes have impacted the consumption volume of biodiesel, therefore, restraining the expansion of the global market.

Opportunities in the Biodiesel Market  

Depleting petrochemical reserves in oil rigs all over the world will probably rise the product call in future years. The global petroleum reserve is estimated to last till around the year 2050. This has boosted researchers to look for best substitutes and create new expansion avenues for the total market. Nevertheless, the call-supply gap due to inadequate production capacities and broad scope for R&D in the feedstock selection for product manufacturing is estimated to start opportunities for new market players. Moreover, the market is predicted to showcase partnerships and collaborations between the manufacturers in order to produce high product volumes to meet the increasing call for biodiesel.

Key Challenges in the Biodiesel Market 

With shrinking land for agriculture, rising oil & fat call and ever-increasing population, and high competition in the feedstock call for the product manufacturing is probable to hinder the future expansion of the global biodiesel market
