The global organic biogas market reached US$ XX million in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2021-2028.
Organic biogas is a type of biofuel that is produced spontaneously as organic matter decomposes. When organic matter is exposed to an environment devoid of oxygen, a mixture of gases is released. Although methane is the most commonly emitted gas (50-75 percent depending on the presence and quantity of carbohydrates in the mix), carbon dioxide and other gases are also released in smaller amounts. Biogas generation is also called anaerobic digestion since it occurs without oxygen. Simply put, a fermentation process breaks down organic matter, converting what was once trash into a source of energy that may be utilized to heat, cool, cook, or generate power when burned.
Some of the major production technologies utilized for the manufacture of organic biogas includes:
The growing adoption and popularity of renewable energy sources tend to uplift the global organic biogas market. Further, the low production cost and production of organic fertilizer as a byproduct could also be seen as a major market driver for the respective market. However, the lack of drastic advancements in the field of organic biogas is a market restraint.
Although the biogas business is currently extremely minimal, it is garnering increasing attention in numerous countries due to its potential to offer clean energy to a wide range of end-users, especially when existing infrastructure is employed to utilize biogas.
Biogas currently accounts for around 0.1% of natural gas demand, but an increasing number of government initiatives encourage its use in natural gas networks and transportation decarbonization. For instance, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom have all implemented biogas transportation support. The RenovaBio program in Brazil aims to reduce the carbon intensity of fuels in the transportation sector by 10% by 2028. Subnational systems are also emerging, such as California's low-carbon fuel standards and British Columbia's low-carbon fuel standards.
As per The Global Energy Agency (IEA), Biogas production is currently estimated to be around 3.5 Mtoe globally. The great bulk of production is destined for European and North American markets, with Denmark and Sweden accounting for more than 10% of total gas sales. Outside of Europe and North America, countries are catching up swiftly, with the number of facilities being upgraded in Brazil, China and India tripling since 2015.
Further, because of the growing interest in biogas, the number of operational plants (including biogas upgrading and biomass gasification facilities) will surpass 1000 by 2020. As a result of all the aforementioned factors, the global organic biogas market is expected to be driven by the growing large-scale adoption of renewable energy.
Though biogas appears to be a logical solution for a world that has to reduce waste as well as carbon emissions, it is not without flaws. There are currently no new technologies to simplify and improve the biogas generation process, implying that it is not a fully efficient system. Therefore, Large-scale production for a larger population is not currently feasible.
Furthermore, government investment in the area is not very popular, as governments investments in better mature alternatives such as wind and solar. Additionally, even after purification and compression, biogas still includes contaminants that could harm automobiles by corroding engine metal parts and increasing the need for and cost of maintenance.
Since the respective parameters limit the overall market prospects of the global organic biogas market, the lack of drastic scientific advancement in the organic biogas sector could be a major restrain for the respective market.
The global organic biogas plant has been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The major parameters that resulted in the respective market's downfall during the pandemic are as follows:
The respective factors have resulted in repercussions leading to a sharp drop in agricultural activity that reduced the amount of the generated agricultural waste, a primary raw material utilized in biogas production, putting the organic biogas industry's prospects in jeopardy.
However, once the pandemic COVID-19 subsides, the respective market is expected to grow considerably due to a growth in the emphasis on clean technology to enhance energy access. Furthermore, several countries are focusing on low-carbon technology to help construct resilient and sustainable energy systems while also providing jobs and driving economic growth. The respective factor is expected to aid the business prospects of the global organic biogas market to regain traction in the future years.
The global organic biogas market is segmented based on feedstock, technology application and region.
Based on application, the global organic biogas market is segmented into power generation, urban heating, combined heat and power, fuel and others. As per The Global Energy Agency (IEA), Bioenergy currently accounts for about 10% of the world's primary energy needs. Today, liquid biofuels account for about 7% of overall bioenergy demand. Power generation dominates the segment due to the following reasons:
Europe dominates the global organic biogas market due to the various government regulations that promote the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources.
According to the Global Energy Agency (IEA), 90% of the world's biogas output is produced in Europe, the People's Republic of China and U.S. Europe is the world's greatest biogas producer. Germany is the most important market, with two-thirds of Europe's biogas plant capacity located there. Energy crops were once the dominant feedstock for Germany's biogas industry, but the policy has since evolved to include crop leftovers, sequential crops, livestock waste and methane capture from landfills. Countries such as Denmark, France, Italy and the Netherlands also actively support biogas generation.
In China, laws have encouraged the development of household-scale digesters in rural areas to increase access to modern energy and clean cooking fuels; these digesters now account for over 70% of installed biogas capacity. Various programs to support the building of larger-scale cogeneration plants have been announced. Furthermore, in late 2019, the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission issued a guidance document on biogas industrialization and upgrading to biogas and support for biogas use in the transportation sector.
The global organic biogas market is growing competitive due to the global paradigm shift towards sustainable and renewable energy sources. Further, the presence of several local and global manufacturers also increases competition in the respective market's landscape.
Some of the major players in the market include: Air Liquide, Carbotech, Xebec Adsorption, Atlas Copco(Cirmac, Greenlane, DMT Environmental Technology, MT Energie, EnviTec Biogas, Viessmann Group(Schmack Biogas(Kohler & Ziegler)), Malmberg Water, among others.
The major players in the market are known to incorporate numerous market strategies to achieve growth in global organic biogas market; these include mergers, acquisitions, product launches, contributions and collaborations.
