Biomass Gasification Market Trends

  • Major Factors Driving the market growth

The market CAGR of biomass gasification is gaining momentum owing to several factors, one being municipal solid waste (MSW), which consists of paper, wood chippings, cardboard,  leaves, and leather products, and non-biomass products such as plastic, glasses, and metal. Other than this, municipal waste, wood processing, and wood wastes are the main sources of biomass gasification. The wood waste from pellets, firewood, sawdust, lumber, furniture wastes, and others are burnt to produce energy through gasification and thus act as another factor for driving the growth of the biomass gasification industry. Apart from them, corn, soybeans, sugar cane, switchgrass, algae, woody plants, and crop and food processing residues are used to make biofuels through the biomass gasification process. Biomass is an environment-friendly power source as it is sourced from wood or forest waste. It can comprise logs, sawmill waste, along with dried wood strands.

Additionally, the biomass gasification plants were limited and only used in residential or industrial setups that too on a lower level. However, Growing investment and awareness about the various benefits and incentives have led to growth in biomass gasification demand. Thus, it has led to a rise in the commercialization of the process and market growth.

Moreover, Fossil fuels are finite sources and thus will cease to exist one day. The coal-based nuclear power plants and other coal applications have led to increased coal extraction. This leads to higher carbon emissions throughout the coal extraction value chain, from mining to burning. Similarly, oil and gas are finite energy sources and are being explored and extracted rapidly to meet energy needs. However, since the sources are depleting at such a high pace, other options for obtaining energy are being explored and invested in. Renewable sources are being preferred, and biomass being such a resource, is being explored and researched. Thus, the biomass gasification market is driven by rapidly depleting fossil fuels. This industry is further assisted by the abundant biomass availability, along with several initiatives by the governments of many countries to promote the use of renewable sources of energy. The industry growth may find obstruction in the form of high costs in the gasification process.

Furthermore, biomass gasification has been used for several decades to produce heat and energy for use in various residential and industrial applications. However, the existing technologies for gasification are limited in efficiency and have a questionable carbon-neutral claim. Research and development in enhancing the technology with maximum output and clean energy production is the need of the hour. Thus, advancement in gasification technologies for biomass will open wide opportunities for the biomass gasification industry growth and, thus, drive the Biomass Gasification market revenue.

Biomass Gasification Market Segment Insights:
