Biogas is prepared from by-products of biodiesel and ethanol and also from the anaerobic digestion of energy crops and organic residues. The process of rotting creates methane that can be burnt directly as a gas or can be converted into electricity or stored in canisters for transportation.
Biogas is gaining traction as a versatile energy carrier with significant potential to meet growing demand in the power, heating, and fuel markets. It holds an advantageous position in terms of resource efficiency and from an environmental and socioeconomic perspective. Biogas can be purified and upgraded to a quality similar to that of natural gas so that it can be input into natural gas grids.
The analysts forecast the Global Biogas market will grow at a CAGR of 8.64 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global Biogas market can be categorized on the basis of technology into two segments: Anaerobic Digesters and Landfill.
The report, the Global Biogas Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Biogas market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Continued development of the infrastructure to transport natural gas will lead to substantial opportunities for investment in biogas production. Biogas can be purified and upgraded to a quality similar to that of natural gas for injection into natural gas grids. Moreover, as a result of the increase in infrastructure for natural gas, the development of natural gas vehicles is also gaining traction and this will also facilitate the overall growth in demand for biogas .
According to the report, the growth of the Global Biogas market is driven by several factors. One of the major drivers is that biogas provides a smart solution to sanitation as it is produced from wastewater and rotten food. Increasing demand for energy and changing global climatic conditions are also having a positive influence on the Global Biogas market.
Further, the report states that the growth of the Global Biogas market faces certain challenges. One of the major challenges is the prolonged payback period as the ROI is not fixed and it takes a long time to recover costs.
