New Report Released: – Global Automotive Biofuels Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive biofuels market: ADM, INEOS Enterprises, Neste, and Renewable Energy.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aemetis, AJ Oleo Industries, Algenol, Bangchak Petroleum, Chemrez Technologies, Copersucar, Ekarat Pattana, Gevo, GranBio, North Queensland Bio Energy, Pacific Ethanol, Patum Vegetable Oil, Petro Green, POET, PT Darmex Biofuel, PT Eterindo Wahanatama Tbk, PT Molindo Raya Industrial, PTT, Pure Essence International, Red Rock, Thai Agro Energy, Total, Valero Energy, Wilmar International, Cosan, Longyan Zhuoyue New Energy, Fujian Zhongde Energy, Louis Dreyfus Commodities, Guangzhou Devotion Thermal Technology Ningbo Tech-Bank, Gushan Environmental Energy, Petrobras, Henan Tianguan Enterprise Group Shandong Jinjiang Bioenergy Technology, Jiangsu Hengshunda Bio-Energy, and Shell.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is biofuel production to go green. Ethanol today, even though touted as a green alternative to fossil fuels, is not environment-friendly in the true sense. The process used to convert sugarcane or corn into ethanol involves a host of steps, including milling, cooking, liquefaction, fermentation, and distillation. It is quite poignant that these very processes to produce such a green fuel, consume electricity and energy produced from coal or petroleum, thereby ultimately nullifying the green in the 'green fuel' tag that ethanol still enjoys.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is stringent regulations for keeping a check on vehicular emissions is likely to drive use of automotive biofuels. Efforts are being made by governments worldwide to minimize the negative effects of global warming and reduce the GHG emissions. For instance, in the EU, the emissions from the heavy-duty trucks, buses, and coaches account for a quarter of the CO2 emissions from road transport. The European Commission has set norms to reduce emissions of heavy-duty vehicles in the coming years

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is subsidies to fossil fuel consumption hampering adoption of biofuels for automotive use. The fossil fuel consumption subsidies were at $548 billion in 2013, and this is the latest data available as per International Energy Agency. These subsidies are more than four times higher than the subsidies offered to renewable energy. Sources cite that many emerging regions of APAC and Latin America enjoy the benefits of decreased fossil fuel prices because of these subsidies and thus prefer the use of petroleum over renewables. This poses a challenge to the growth of the global automotive biofuels market.

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.
