New Country Ranking Report on Advanced Biofuels announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Advanced Biofuels Country Rankings

Index of the Advanced Biofuels Scale-Up Opportunity by Country Based on Liquid Fuels Demand, Feedstock Opportunity, Market Drivers, and Market Investment

Opportunities for growth across all global regions abound for advanced biofuels, a class of fuels ranging from cellulosic ethanol to green diesel to drop-in aviation biofuels that are derived from a diverse range of non-food feedstocks, such as nonedible crops, waste, and algae. Although conventional biofuels derived from food-based crops account for roughly 5% of global liquid fuels consumption in the transportation sector today, the advanced biofuels industry offers long-term scalability. Advanced biofuels also eliminate many of the social and environmental externalities that have undermined first-generation ethanol and biodiesel. Most conversion technologies, however, are still in the early stages of commercialization and the outlook for widespread scale-up over the next decade remains fraught with uncertainty.

Currently home to an estimated 67% of global ventures in advanced biofuels, the United States leads all countries in the advanced biofuels country ranking index. China, which hosts an estimated 3% of global ventures, ranks No. 2 overall just ahead of Germany (No. 3) and France (No. 4). An early ethanol pioneer, Brazil is ranked No. 5 overall. Navigant Research forecasts that advanced biofuels scale-up is likely to be concentrated in the key markets of the United States, Brazil, China, and the European Union member states.

This Navigant Research report provides an assessment of the potential for global advanced biofuels production based on four assessment frameworks: liquid fuel demand, feedstock opportunity, market drivers, and market investment. In total, 69 countries are assessed across 19 macroeconomic and policy-related criteria. Key supporting data covering blending and production policies, biorefinery investment forecasts, oil production outlook, country-level market share of biofuels production, and the advanced biofuels venture landscape are provided as well.

Key Questions Addressed:

  • Which countries are likely to spearhead the commercialization of advanced biofuels?
  • What factors and variables influence advanced biofuels scale-up efforts at the country level?
  • How large is the current volume of mandated biofuels blending and production?
  • What is the current market share of biofuels production by country?
  • What is the forecast capacity of biorefinery construction globally?
