Biomass Gasification Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

A renewable source of energy, biomass is mainly obtained from organic matter such as plant and animal waste. It is further converted into a combustible gas mixture through the process of biomass gasification. The energy released through the process can be used for cooking food, generating electricity, heating and transportation. Biomass offers a viable alternative to coal-based power generation. Due to rising environmental concerns and increasing green-house gas emissions, companies are now turning towards environment-friendly energy sources. Consequently, the market for biomass has grown significantly faster than other energy sources. Moreover, government’s support through various policies and regulations along with abundant availability of biomass are some of the other factors that are currently driving this market. According to IMARC group, the global biomass electricity production has grown at a CAGR of around 8% during 2010-2017 reaching a value of US$ 78 Billion in 2017.


IMARC’s latest study “Biomass Gasification Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023” has segmented the market on the basis of sources and major regions. Currently, solid biomass represents the biggest source of biomass electricity production followed by biogas, municipal waste and liquid biomass. Geographically, Europe holds the biggest market share followed by North America. The report has also analysed some of the key players operating in the global biomass gasification market which include Lahti Energia, Vaskiluodon Voima, Rudorsdorfer Zement, Essent, Electrabel (part of GDF Suez), Sodra Cell Varo Pulp Mill, Agnion Technologies, Corenso United, Skive Fjernvarme, Babcock and Wilcox Volund.
