Biofuels Conference Market Analysis and Reports | UAE Conference Series

Market Analysis - Biofuels Conference 2018

Scope and Importance: -

Fuel for transport makes up almost a third of the current world energy consumption. Biofuels – have emerged as one of many possible alternatives to fossil fuels that might help meet our energy needs in an environmentally sustainable way. A biofuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. Now, biofuels make up only a small proportion of world energy use, but this is expected to increase, due in part to targets and policies that are encouraging uptake of biofuels for transport. It has been estimated that biofuels will provide almost 9 per cent of transport fuel in Europe by 2020.The main reason for biofuel over fossil fuel is Energy security- Energy security is the constant availability and supply of affordable energy for consumers and industry. Risks to energy security include, for example, disruptions to the supply of imported fossil fuels, limited availability of fuel, and energy price spikes. The possibility of deriving biofuels from locally grown sources and using them as alternatives to petrol products is attractive for many countries, including the UK, that currently depend largely on fossil fuels.

The development of new biofuels technology is a rapidly growing field of research. The aim is to produce economically viable biofuels that generate fewer greenhouse gases and use fewer natural resources than current production methods. Two of the main approaches in development are biofuels made from non-edible parts of crops (known as lignocellulosic biofuels) and biofuels made from algae.

Market Value on Biofuels Production and Consumption:


Biofuel production is expected to consume 10.4% and 12% of global coarse grains and vegetable oil production respectively in 2025. By 2025, 22% of global sugarcane production should be used to produce ethanol. Global ethanol production is projected to increase modestly during the outlook period from about 115.6 Bln L in 2015 to nearly 128.4 Bln L by 2025. More than half of this increase is expected to originate from Brazil mostly to fill domestic demand. The second largest contributor to the expansion in ethanol production is Thailand. In the United States, ethanol production will increase in 2016 and 2017 to meet the stronger demand induced by low crude oil prices and implied higher gasoline use and then decrease slightly because of lower transportation fuels demand.

Figure1: World Ethanol Production by 2025


Global ethanol use is projected to increase by 12.4 Bln L during the outlook period. Ethanol use in the United States is limited by the blend wall and declining petrol use prospects from 2018 to the end of the projection period. A limited development of the flex-fuel car sector is assumed. In this context, ethanol use is expected to decrease from 56 Bln L in 2016 to 54.9 Bln L by 2025 leaving the United States in a net export position throughout the projection period. Global biodiesel use is expected to increase by 10 Bln L over the projection period. In the European Union, biodiesel use is projected to increase from 12 Bln L in 2015 to 13 Bln L in 2020 when the RED target is met. By 2025, European biodiesel use is expected to decrease to 11.6 Bln L. The lower volume represents an average share of biodiesel in diesel type fuels of 5.7% in volume terms.
