Global Biogas Market 2019-2023

About this market

The increasing rate of urbanization and population growth, which in turn, is leading to the higher consumption of goods and energy. Moreover, waste generation increases with the economic development of any particular region. The increase in the costs associated with the collection and treatment of these wastes is expected to be most drastic in low-income countries as it will be more than five-fold; they will be followed by the lower-middle-income countries with a four-fold increment. Hence, appropriate waste management techniques need to be adopted depending on the composition, ambient conditions, and regulations in a particular region. The global impact of MSW is growing significantly. Hence, the expected increase in MSW generation coupled with the need to reduce GHG emissions will drive the growth of the global biogas market during the forecast period. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the biogas market will register a CAGR of almost 6% by 2023.

Market Overview

Stringent regulations pertaining to the reduction of GHG emissions

The regulatory initiatives are aimed at preventing the release of methane into the atmosphere. Since biogas energy plants capture methane and use it for energy generation, they offer the best solutions to reduce methane emissions. Hence, such regulations will drive the growth of the global biogas market.

Drawbacks associated with biogas production

Biogas still faces a challenge with regard to large-scale production, which is resulting in its low adoption from utility-level projects. Biogas also has a low conversion efficiency and contain impurities even after compression and refinement. The adoption of biogas and have resulted in comparatively lower investments in the global biogas market compared with other sources of renewables such as solar and wind, thus hampering the growth of the market.
