Global Biomass Market Forecast – Assessment of Opportunities, Trends and Challenges 2014-2023
Biomass has been used world over for cooking and heating for many years now. However, only recently has be use of biomass for the purpose of electricity generation come to the forefront. While the cost of power generation from biomass still remains high as compares to the cost of thermal power generation, biomass as a source for electricity generation is nevertheless growing around the world.
Owing to technical advances in equipment manufacturing for the biomass power market, it is likely that the cost of biomass power is going to fall in the coming years. Furthermore, benefits from government subsidies, energy efficiency incentives, and incentives targeting an expansion of the market for renewables will boost the demand for additional biomass power. It is likely that between 2021-2035, the average generation costs (USD per MWH) for biomass power will reach $126, thus driving more countries to utilize biomass power.
Australia, Brazil, China, Finland, India, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States are emerging as the major players in the biomass power industry. These countries need to overcome the challenge of shortage in biomass feedstock supply in order to move forward in achieving their targets for making biomass power a reality.
