The European market is expected to witness healthy growth during the forecast period and is the leading producer and exporter.

Segmental Analysis

The global biomass pellets market has been segmented based on source, type, application, and region.

By source, the global biomass pellets market has been segmented into industrial waste, agricultural waste, energy crops, food waste, virgin lumber, and others. Among these, the industrial waste and agricultural waste segments collectively held a market share of over 73% in 2018, as a significant amount of waste is produced from these two sources as compared to others.

The types included in the scope of the global biomass pellets market are wood pellets, agri-pellets, torrified pellets, and others. The wood pellets segment has the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The segment’s growth is attributed to the low cost of raw materials and high energy generation capacity when co-fired with other fuels.

Based on application,

The power industry held the highest market share in 2018 as pellets are a clean source of fuel used in energy generation. It is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The power industry in the Americas and Europe are extensively using biomass pellets since 2012.
