The global biodiesel market was worth US$ 32.4 Billion in 2018. Biodiesel, or green diesel, is a renewable, clean-burning alternative fuel that is produced through the transesterification of recycled cooking oils and animal fats. The process has two products, methyl esters (biodiesel) and glycerol. Biodiesel has properties similar to that of petroleum diesel, but in comparison, it is more economical, carbon-neutral and non-toxic. It also burns cleaner than fossil fuels and does not produce sulfur as a residue or other harmful chemicals. Owing to these benefits, it finds extensive application across automotive, marine, railway, agriculture and mining industries.

The increasing global energy demand and the growing need for clean and renewable fuel sources, represent the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, a thriving automotive industry is another major growth-inducing factor. Increasing environmental-consciousness and consumer awareness regarding the benefits of biodiesel have led to its widespread adoption across the globe. Additionally, the limited availability and surging prices of non-renewable energy sources such as petrol, diesel and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) have favored the utilization of biodiesel. Various technological advancements such as the emergence of third-generation biofuels derived from algae that can produce a diverse and high quantity of biofuel as compared to other feedstocks are further creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors such as the implementation of favorable government policies to promote its usage for sustainable development, energy conservation and environmental preservation are also projected to impact the market positively in the coming years. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 44.2 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of around 5% during 2019-2024.
