Drivers –

Increasing awareness regarding depleting non renewable energy sources and the need to integrate renewable energy sources


Biodiesel being the only form of renewable fuel

favorable government regulations


The growth of the biodiesel fuel market is increasing rapidly but some factors restrict the growth of the biodiesel market in the global market.

Restriction in the existing distribution channels, retail, and development adversely affects the growth of the biodiesel market in the global market.

Also, the low quantity of biodiesel production is another factor that hinders the growth of the biodiesel market in the global market.

Moreover, there is a lack of awareness regarding the biodiesel market in various under-developed countries.

Improved Energy Generation While Reducing VOC Emissions Boost Market Value 

Favorable government regulations to foster carbon-neutral energy sources and development in technology have made biodiesel cost-effective. Additionally, improvements in technology have helped boost biodiesel performance. Growing environmental concerns and the increasing energy demand are expected to drive the biodiesel industry worldwide. 

Demand-Supply Gap in Key Raw Materials is a Major Headwind

Also, shortages of sodium methylate solution, a catalyst used to produce biodiesel, are adding to market concerns about fuel availability. Unexpected technical issues at production sites that severely affect the production of sodium methylate solution pose significant challenges to the market growth. Such exceptional market situations result in delays and reduction in delivery of sodium methylate. 

COVID-19 Impacts

The biodiesel market revenues remained reassuringly robust amid the COVID-19 crises. Resultantly, the market has become more dynamic and constantly changing than in the pre-pandemic era. Simultaneously, the ability to respond to market changes became more important than ever in post-pandemic periods. 

Lockdowns implemented to control the virus spread fostered many trends, including industrial automation & robotics, networked machines, and analytics. Therefore, the biodiesel market kept growing, witnessing the rising adoption during the pandemic era. The biodiesel market kept growing during the pandemic era witnessing the rising adoption of biopower solutions and equipment.


The market is segmented into types, fuel types, applications, and regions. The type segment is sub-segmented into cellulosic, biohydrogen, methanol, and others. The fuel type segment is sub-segmented into ethanol and biodiesel fuel. The application segment is sub-segmented into transportation, off-grid electricity supply, and others. The region segment is sub-segmented into Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the-rest-of-the-world. 

Regional Analysis

North America accounts for the largest market in terms of biodiesel market value. Increasing government policies and strict rules to promote environmental conservation is a key driving force behind the growing biodiesel market. Besides, increasing environmental concerns and the implementation of government policies boost the region's biodiesel market shares. 

Increasing investment in infrastructural development defines the growing market landscape. Moreover, the increasing use of biodiesel in various power generation and industrial applications substantiate the biodiesel market growth. Spurring rise in manufacturing sectors and vast technological upgrades, alongside the strong presence of key players in the region, fosters market revenues.
