Biofuels Production is to Grow at CAGR of 3.5%, Forecasts GlobalData

27 Jun 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Bioethanol is produced from agricultural feedstock, and in 2011, coarse grains represented the most common raw material for bioethanol production, accounting for over a 50% share. Sugarcane, wheat, molasses, and sugar beet are also used.

The new report “Biofuels (Biodiesel and Bioethanol) Market - Global Production, Regulations, Export-Import Analysis and Key Country Analysis to 2020” by GlobalData found that countries in Europe, Asia and North America show heavy involvement in biofuel production, displaying a global interest in the industry. Government incentives and fuel demand to boost bioethanol and biodiesel markets, according to a new report by energy intelligence company GlobalData.

Global bioethanol production started in 2003, and grew at a significant rate up until the present, primarily due to government support in the form of subsidies. Growth in the global bioethanol market has been driven in Canada by national targets, and in China by blending targets, highlighting the importance of government and environmental policy within the future biofuels market.

Global production of biodiesel began in 2005, and also grew at a very impressive speed, thanks to environmental concerns and rising energy security issues. Government subsidies will support future growth of the biodiesel market. The key global biodiesel exporters in 2010 were Germany, China, the Netherlands, Argentina, Belgium and the US. These countries boast considerable biodiesel production capacities, which they use to export biodiesel to other regions, displaying global demand for biofuels.

Global bioethanol production started in 2003 with 33,514 million liters, growing to 105,608 million liters by 2011 at a CAGR of 15.4%, and is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.4% during 2011-2020 to reach 154,962 million liters in 2020.
