The global biofuel industry has been witnessing rapid growth over the past few years in the backdrop of depleting fossil fuels and degradation of environmental conditions. Since the second half of the 20th century, amid concerns about rising oil prices and greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels, the term biofuel has largely come to mean bioethanol (also referred to as ethanol) and diesel. Therefore, many economies have turned their attention towards biofuels. Many countries are also supporting the biofuel industry in the form of subsidies and tax incentives which keep the biofuel producing companies profitable. Even governments of various countries have implemented mandatory biofuel blend with the conventional fuel to increase its demand.

According to our new research report, “Global Biofuel Market Analysis”, the global production of ethanol and biodiesel is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% and 11%, respectively during 2011-2014. The prospective growth in ethanol and biodiesel production depends on several factors that have been thoroughly covered in this report.
