About Biodiesel

During the past decade, biodiesel has attracted considerable attention as a non-toxic fuel because of its environmental benefits and because it is made from sources such as vegetable oil and animal fat. However, still it hasn’t been able to garner the market to its full potential. The growth of the Global Biodiesel market is primarily dependent on the availability, quality, and yield of feedstock because the source material accounts for more than 80 percent of the cost of biodiesel production.

The analysts forecast the Global Biodiesel market will grow at a CAGR of 8.1 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Brazil Eco EnergiaCommenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One emerging trend in the market is the need to comply with environmental regulations. Many investors worldwide are investing in the market because biodiesel is a clean fuel. Biodiesel is gaining importance as a non-toxic and carbon-neutral fuel across the world. According to the EPA, it reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 57-86 percent compared to gasoline and diesel. Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to comply with the EPA’s rigorous emissions and health effects study under the Clean Air Act. The environmental targets set by various countries to control carbon dioxide emissions are promoting the adoption of alternative fuel technologies. Biodiesel successfully passes the criteria for lower emissions and a reduced carbon footprint not only in the US, but in all other parts of the world.”

According to the report, one prominent driver in this market is the advantage of using biodiesel over diesel. The market is in need of a clean source of energy, and biodiesel is seen as an ideal alternative because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprints. Also, many countries have taken initiatives to promote renewable fuels, which will have a positive influence on the demand for biodiesel in the Transportation and Commercial sectors.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the threat to food security. Many farmers are starting to cultivate feedstock for biodiesel over other agricultural commodity, which is resulting in a major hike in food prices.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
