Biodiesel Market Segment Insights:

Biodiesel Type Insights

The Biodiesel market segmentation, based on type, includes Methanol, Biohydrogen and Cellulosic Ethanol. The Cellulosic Ethanol segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to the Biodiesel market revenue. This is because cellulosic biodiesel has several advantages over other types of biodiesel. It is made from non-edible plant materials, which means that it does not compete with food crops for land and resources. Additionally, cellulosic biodiesel has a higher energy content than traditional biodiesel, which means that it is more efficient and cost-effective to use. Furthermore, it has lower greenhouse gas emissions than traditional biodiesel, making it a more sustainable and environmentally friendly option. Due to these advantages, the demand for cellulosic biodiesel is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.

Biodiesel Application Insights

Based on application, the Biodiesel market segmentation includes Off Grid Electricity Supply and Transportation. The transportation segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This is because biodiesel is a clean-burning and renewable alternative fuel that can be used in existing diesel engines without the need for any major modifications. This makes it an attractive option for transportation, especially in the commercial and heavy-duty vehicle sectors. However, this application is not as widely adopted as transportation, as it is more limited in terms of the availability of biodiesel feedstocks and the cost of producing biodiesel in small quantities. These all factors for Biodiesel positively impact the market growth.
