Report Description

Global Biogas Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period (2021-2027).
 In today’s era biowaste is not only important from the point of view of waste management but also a recognized source of green energy. It is readily used in producing biogas. Almost every part of the world has high potential to produce biogas. According to IEA, the feedstock required to produce biogas is set to grow by 40% over the period to 2040. The largest opportunities lie across the Asia Pacific region, where natural gas consumption and imports have been growing rapidly in recent years, and there are also significant possibilities across North and South America, Europe, and Africa.

Further, in developing countries like US, Canada, Australia, etc. improvements in waste managements and collection programs would lead to increased availability of various feedstocks on larger scale thereby helping the biogas market grow. Globally countries are focusing to reduce their carbon footprints to achieve their aim of carbon neutral country; biogas is one of the sources to fulfil the demands for decarbonization as it emits less carbon footprints thus environmentally friendly nature of biogas would fuel its demand. For instance, globally an annual change of ~65% was observed in low carbon energy generation between 2011-2015. In addition, a change of ~46% was observed between 2015-2019.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Scandinavian Biogas Fuels International AB, EnviTech Biogas AG, Air Liquide S.A., Pressure Technologies Plc., Himark Biogas Inc., DMT Environmental Technology, MT-Energie GmbH, Acrona Group, Xebec Adsorption Inc., Weltec Biopower GmbH. Several M&A’s along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to boost their presence in different regions.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst source, agricultural waste category held lucrative market share.”

Based on source, the biogas market is segmented into municipal waste, animal waste, agricultural waste, and others. Among all, agricultural waste held considerable market share due to large production of crop leads to more amount of waste. Agricultural waste includes organic waste generated in any farming related activities. As per Global Bioenergy Statistics, 3-14% of the total energy supply across the globe can be fulfilled by the energy generated from agricultural waste.

“Amongst end use, power generation held considerable market share in 2020.”

Based on end use, the biogas market is divided into power generation, cogeneration, heat, and others. Among all, power generation held lucrative market share. The growing focus on the usage of renewable energy, particularly in the electric power sector, has significantly increased the demand for biogas for electricity generation. For instance, in Germany, nearly 58 billion kWH of electricity was generated from biogas in 2020.

“Europe represents considerable market share in the Global Biogas Market.”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of biogas, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, Spain, United Kingdom, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. Europe held significant share of biogas in 2018 which was owing to technical advancements in biogas production process which was due to major players like EnviTech Biogas, Weltec Biopower GmbH, Scandinavian Biogas Fuels International AB operating in the region.
