Biofuels Market

Product Description

Biofuel is form of crude oil that is produced from plant, algae or animal waste. Since the biomass can be used as fuel directly and the feed stock material can be easily replenished biofuel is considered to be the best renewable resource of energy unlike other fossil fuels such as petroleum, coal, natural gas. Bio fuels can be found in Solid, Liquid, or Gaseous state.

Biofuels are compatible with the available existing fuels and possess similar properties. Biobutanols is a type of biofuel which is volatile alcohols and affect eyes causing irritation, respiratory tract, and skin. Overexposure to this fuel can cause nervous system depression. Bio-diesels have potentially low toxicity, although long term exposure is harmful. Bio-diesel is easily perishable.

Overall, the bio-energy is one tenth of the total world energy demand. The traditional unprocessed biomass such as charcoal, fuelwood, and animal waste accounts for the worlds one tenth energy source. This is useful for large mass of people commonly found in developing countries, where cooking is and heating is done with the help of bio-fuel.

Market Description

Market growth, is associated with factors such as growing demand, earnings from the trade, economic state of that particular region, supply chain and other.

Bio-fuels are renewable source of fuel energy, mostly prepared form animal waste, crop waste, plants, algae material etc.

Presently, due to rising pressure of population, there is scarcity of fossil fuel being faced. Additionally, growing carbon emissions is a currently a matter of concern. Hence due to these reasons, the demand for Bio-fuel is high which is indirectly affecting the market.

Biofuels is considered as one of the emerging clean fuel options over traditional fuels. In addition to this, the expenditure on research and development of bio-fuel is comparatively low over other fossils. Besides, ongoing research for commercialization of the second and third generation biofuels is further boosting the market.
