369 Pages MarketsandMarkets April 01, 2011 SKU: MKMK6233835

The report covers the trends in production and consumption of liquid biofuels along with feedstock prices, opportunities, and regulations affecting the liquid biofuels market in Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, France, India, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, and U.S. These countries are selected on the basis of their last two year biofuel production and GDP growth rates. The biofuels (bioethanol and biodiesel) production in top and emerging countries is expected to grow from 102,896 million liters in 2011 to 150,975 million liters in 2016 at CAGR of 8% for the same period. The markets representing high growth rate are Sweden (32.2%), Colombia (24.4%), India (19.7%), and Thailand (16.3%).

Biofuels are derived from biomass and waste in solid (fuel pellets), liquid (bioethanol and biodiesel), and gaseous (biogas) form. Bioethanol production utilizes sugar (sugarcane or sugar beets), starch (cereals or corn), and cellulosic (corn stover or switch grass) feedstocks.

Biodiesel production utilizes oil bearing crops, recycled greases, animal fats, and algae. These feedstocks are also grouped under first, second, and third generation. The first generationfeedstocks are regular biomass (sugar, starch, and oil bearing feedstocks), second generation are cellulosic feedstocks, and third generation are algae.

The report outlines the difference between first, second, and third generation feedstock and their predominant usage in selected countries. For understanding the fluctuations in feedstock prices, U.S. prices of feedstock are taken as representative for the global prices and their last six month variation is observed. The food vs feed utilization of crops in U.S., EU-27, Brazil, India, Thailand, and Colombia is analyzed by feedstock trade in the year 2010.

The report covers the prices of widely used feedstock in top and emerging countries. The report also covers the bioethanol and biodiesel production and consumption in selected countries and makes an attempt to analyze domestic supply and demand gap in these countries, as well as their global biofuels production and consumption share.

The report provides global overview of liquid biofuels market, market dynamics and their impact; competitive landscape, biofuels market share of major players, and patent analysis. The report also discusses burning issues like fuel vs food debate, emergence of new feedstocks, and new developments in biofuel market.
