Biofuels for Transportation: Introduction

A biofuel is a form of energy that is generated by contemporary biological processes like agricultural processes and anaerobic digestion as opposed to a fuel created through geological processes like those that are involved in the production of fossil fuels like petroleum and coal that are derived out of fossilized biological material from the past. The report is based on Biofuels For Transportation market's progress and competitive landscape as well as the development models in various regions around the globe. This report is devoted to offering niche markets, possible risks, as well as a comprehensive strategy for competitive analysis across various fields.

In addition to the advantages, the competition offered by different kinds of services and products as well as the opportunities for development and characteristics of consumption, as well as the analysis of the structure of downstream applications are examined in depth. To Boost Growth in the current crisis, this study examines in depth the threats and opportunities that could be analyzed.

The Global Biofuels for Transportation Market Overview: 

The Biofuels market is expected to expand at a CAGR of less than 8% between 2020-2025. The need for safe, sustainable, and clean energy sources is expected to boost Biofuel's demand all over the world. On account of the increased requirements for biofuel blends in automobile fuels and the growing support of governments for environmentally friendly alternatives, the worldwide consumption of Biofuel is predicted to continue growing in a significant way over the next forecast time.

Based on estimates, the global consumption of energy is projected to grow by 28% in 2040 compared to 2015. The increasing environmental demand is to use green, sustainable, renewable energies to satisfy the growing demands for fuel. Renewable energy is the fastest-growing source of energy and is expected to double between 2015 and 2030.

Biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) comprise the largest share of renewable energy sources in global energy transportation demand. The demand for bioenergy in the transport sector is driven by the blending of demands in large economies and by the continuous use of fossil fuels across the globe.

Additionally, the advanced liquid biofuels that are made from feedstocks like lignocellulosic, waste oils, or fats, municipal waste are an effective option to reduce carbon emissions in energy-related sectors efficiently and cost-effectively for industries like shipping, aviation, and freight.

For instance, as per the Tracking Transport report by IEA, The Transport biofuels production had increased more than 6% per year in 2019, and 3% growth is expected in the coming five years. However, it falls short of the steady 10% growth every year needed until 2030 to ensure that it is aligned to Sustainable Development.

In addition to the growing transport fuel demands and support from authorities for sustainable energy in ASEAN countries, this clearly raises the security of energy and increases the demand for agricultural commodities. For instance, over the last few years, Chinese traders have increased the nation's production of ethanol from 258 million liters to 5,258 million liters. The goal is to launch the blend with 10% of ethanol into gasoline across 11-15 provinces.

It is predicted that the proportion of biofuels in road transport within the OECD could rise to 20% by 2040. Within the industrialized world, similarly with aviation. The percentage that biofuels are used to make jet fuel is predicted to rise to 20% by 2040.

But, as per the BP Energy Outlook, the transport sector will remain heavily dominated by oil, despite the increasing use of alternative energy sources. It also notes that the oil share in the transportation industry is projected to fall to around 85% in 2040, which is a reduction from the current 94%.

Electricity, natural gas, and biofuels will together be responsible for more than half of the growth in the use of energy in transportation and will each contribute about 5% of the demand for transport by 2040.

But, a new study by IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) on advanced biofuels which interviewed experts about the main barriers to scaling up liquid biofuels, suggests that the absence of solid guidelines regarding the use of biofuels in liquid form is the most significant obstacle for the expansion of the biofuels market. Additionally, due to the decline of patent fillings, Investments have been able to see a decrease from USD 27 billion in 2007 to USD 2 billion in 2017.

Mandates Set by Various Countries to Drive the Market:

The ambitious demands of diverse countries to blend biofuels with conventional fuels to decrease the dependence on fossil fuels have increased the demand for biofuels all over the globe.

Major blending mandates that boost the demand for biofuels worldwide are in place within three countries: the US, China, and Brazil. About the biofuels, the target has been set by the countries like China, Brazil, and The US. These countries have set the target of attaining a 15-27% blend of biofuels with regular fuel by the year 2020-2022. The reform is expected to increase global demand for biofuels in these regions.

As per the regulations that are in place according to the mandates, in Brazil, there are cars that run on petrol that contain up to 85% ethanol and others that run on 100 percent alcohol. Since 2011, Germany has started selling ethanol at a petrol station. They use 10% of ethanol which has replaced the premium fuels which contain 5% of ethanol. 

 The National Policy on Biofuels (India) in 2018 has set the target of blending 20% ethanol in petrol and 5% biodiesel in a diesel by the year 2030. This is expected to accelerate the introduction of biofuels within India.

China is aiming to achieve 10% biofuels by 2020, despite the stock of ethanol dropping down to 57million metric tonnes from 200 million metric tonnes in 2017.
