The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “North America Biomass Gasification Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the North America biomass gasification market size reached 153.4 TWh in 2019. Biomass gasification is a thermal chemical process that converts carbonaceous biomass into a combustible gas. This resulting gas consists of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and other gaseous hydrocarbons along with contaminants, such as tars, char, and ash. Biomass gasification takes place at a lower temperature (900° C) as compared to coal-gasification. As biomass is a renewable source of energy obtained from organic matter such as plant and animal waste, biomass gasification has gained widespread preference in North America. It provides clean gaseous fuel for use in furnaces, boilers and internal combustion engines for power generation and process heating.
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.
North America Biomass Gasification Market Trends:
Biomass gasification is commonly used in various industries for electricity generation, which represents one of the primary growth-inducing factors for the market. Large-scale gasifiers provide fuel for commercial power generation, a source of heat and power to meet significant industrial needs, or gases for producing chemicals. Besides this, the rising environmental concerns have led to a shift from fossil fuels to biomass as it produces significantly lower amounts of air pollutants than traditional coal-based power-generation methods. It also facilitates waste management and reduces landfill volume. Consequently, regional governments are providing incentives to encourage the adoption of biomass gasification. For instance, the United States, China and Brazil signed an agreement in 2015 to increase the amount of electricity produced from renewable resources, such as biomass. Moreover, population growth in the region is expected to increase the usage of biomass gasification in the transportation sector, as well as in the generation of ethanol, biodiesel and biogas. On account of these factors, the market is anticipated to reach a volume of 196.4 TWh by 2025, registering a CAGR of around 4.2% during 2020-2025.
- Based on the source, the market has been segmented into solid biomass, biogas, municipal waste and liquid biomass.
