A renewable source of energy, biomass is primarily obtained from organic matter such as plant and animal waste. It is converted into a combustible gas mixture through the process of biomass gasification. The energy released through this process can be used for cooking food, generating electricity, heating and transportation. Due to rising environmental concerns and increasing green-house gas emissions, countries are now turning towards environment-friendly energy sources, particularly for the production of electricity. According to a latest report by IMARC group titled, “Biomass Gasification Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the global biomass electricity production has grown at a CAGR of around 10% during 2009-2016 reaching a value of around US$ 73 Billion in 2016.
Highlights of the global biomass gasification market:
- Electricity production is the largest application area of biomass gasification.
- Increasing population and urbanisation are the major factors driving the market.
- The market is expected to reach a value of more than US$ 100 Billion by 2022.
