Press Release   •   Feb 01, 2017 05:55 EST

The biodiesel market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% to reach USD 41.18 billion by 2021. Biodiesel is an environmental friendly, non-toxic, and readily biodegradable fuel, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions. These properties have increased the demand for biodiesel from automotive, power generation, marine, railway, agriculture, and mining industries. Low cold filtration properties and increase in water separation & fuel foaming with the use of biodiesel may act as restraints for the market.

The consumption of vegetable oils to produce biodiesel is projected to witness high growth during the forecast period in biodiesel market. Soybean, palm, and rapeseed are the feedstocks used to manufacture vegetable oils. These feedstocks are majorly used for the production of biodiesel production, due to their easy availability in various countries. Furthermore, these feedstocks enable easy processing as they contain less saturated fat and thus reduce the overall manufacturing cost of vegetable oils.

Rising use of biodiesel in the fuel and power generation application segments have led to an increased demand for biodiesel, globally. Europe is estimated to be the largest market for biodiesel, followed by North America. Germany is expected to account for the largest share in Europe till 2021 with Italy is expected to be the fastest-growing market for biodiesel during the forecast period. The U.S. is the largest market for the biodiesel in North America. Major producers of biodiesel, such as Archer Daniels Midland Company, Bunge Limited, Renewable Energy Group, Cargill Inc., and TerraVia Holdings Inc. are located in the U.S.
