Global Cellulosic Ethanol Market 2017-2021

Global Cellulosic Ethanol Market 2017-2021

About Cellulosic Ethanol

Cellulosic ethanol is produced from cellulosic biomass with raw materials such as agricultural waste and residues, grasses, forest residues, wood chips, plants, energy crops, and organic MSW. The raw materials are widely available and have a significant carbohydrate content. The complex sugars are converted to simpler forms using hydrolysis techniques such as enzyme and acid hydrolysis. Cellulosic ethanol can also be produced by the gasification process of lignocellulosic raw materials.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cellulosic ethanol market to grow at a CAGR of 45.1% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cellulosic Ethanol market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cellulosic ethanol market: Beta Renewables, DuPont, Enerkem, Fiberight, and GranBio.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Borregaard, Clariant, and Shandong Longlive Bio-Technology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is compliance with environmental regulations. The benefits of renewable biofuels are a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and energy security. These benefits have captured the interest of governments across the world and biofuels, such as cellulosic ethanol is gaining momentum and finding applications in different sectors.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased environment and energy security concerns. Fossil fuels have limited reserve, and most energy production is based on them. This has led many countries to import large quantities of crude oil, which impacts the growth of their economy. Cellulosic ethanol is one of the fastest growing alternative fuels across various parts of the world, as it helps to diversify the energy mix and reduce the dependency on fossil fuels.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is capital intensive industry. Cellulosic ethanol is likely to play an important role to alleviate the probable negative aspects of biofuel production and application. Though biofuels have seen several important technological advancements at the laboratory level, commercialization of cellulosic ethanol is still a challenge due to the requirement of high initial investments.
