Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Biofuels for Transportation Markets
Ethanol, Biodiesel, Drop-In Biofuels, Biogas, and Biomass-Based Fuels for the Road Transportation Sector: Technology Assessments, Policy Issues, Supply Chain Analysis, and Global Demand Forecasts
Since the turn of the millennium, biofuels have been a leading solution to mitigating the energy security, environmental security, and economic security issues associated with petroleum dependency. In the last 10 years, an increase in ethanol production capacity in the United States and Brazil, and biodiesel in Europe, has resulted in biofuels gaining a foothold in the global market for liquid fuels. The global biofuels industry is now on the verge of entering a new phase of development focused on advanced and drop-in biofuels.
Conventional biofuels – ethanol and biodiesel – are the most near-term solutions to displacing petroleum-based fuel consumption in the road transportation sector. Further advances in biofuels derived from non-food feedstocks and biofuels that are drop-in-capable promise to significantly alter the petroleum industry landscape. Governments and industries are looking at ways to replace the whole barrel of oil by developing biofuels for all forms of transportation: road, aviation, and maritime. Despite the huge potential, however, biofuels are still challenged by issues such as feedstock access, supply chain infrastructure development, and achieving price parity with the well-established petroleum industry. Navigant Research forecasts that global biofuels consumption in the road transportation sector will grow from more than 32.4 billion gallons per year (BGPY) in 2013 to more than 51.1 BGPY in 2022.
This Navigant Research report analyzes the emerging markets and future growth opportunities for biofuels, including ethanol, biodiesel, and drop-in biofuels. The study provides an analysis of the major demand drivers and market challenges related to biofuels technologies. Global market forecasts of vehicle sales and parcs and liquid fuels consumption, station installations, and revenue extend through 2022. The report also examines the key technologies associated with biofuels, as well as the competitive landscape.
