Global Biogas Market to Grow at 4.92% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Renewable Energy Sources

Published on Aug 23, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Biogas Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global biogas market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.92% during 2022-2027. Biogas is an environment-friendly, renewable energy source produced from decomposing organic matter, such as food, animal waste, crop residue, and sewage. It combines methane, carbon dioxide, and small quantities of nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen sulfide. It is produced by anaerobic decomposition and thermochemical conversion of biomass. Biogas is widely used in cooking, drying, cooling, and heating applications and for producing electricity, methanol, and steam. It is a cost-effective and easy-to-produce energy source that reduces atmospheric, soil, and water pollution by lowering methane levels and diverting food waste from landfills.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Biogas Market Trends:

The increasing demand for renewable energy due to rising environmental concerns is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Biogas is a clean energy source widely used for electricity generation, vehicle fuel, cooking gas, and heating. In addition, the increasing need to reduce fossil fuel dependency and carbon emissions is favoring the market growth. Furthermore, favorable policies by governments across the globe, coupled with rising investments by international organizations, such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in biogas projects to achieve sustainability goals, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Furthermore, the introduction of the methanation process that uses renewable hydrogen to increase the calorific value of biogas and convert it to higher fuel standards for the replacement of natural gas is providing an impetus to market growth. Other factors, including increasing utilization of biogas for electricity generation, heightened fuel consumption across the globe, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and the rising production of biogas through waste treatment facilities, are supporting the market growth.
