Wood pellets form a clean, environmentally beneficial, sustainable, and renewable biomass. The increasing global demand for renewable energy is driving the demand for wood pellets to reduce the usage of fossil fuels that contribute to global warming. This is expected to contribute to the growth of the industry over the forecast period.

Consumers in developed regions such as Europe have greater environmental sentience, which continues to account for their increasing reliance on renewable sources. Bio-based energy sources are gathering impetus in developing countries for electricity generation. The reason is attributed to rising energy consumption and favorable government policies.

A significant reduction in the emission of greenhouse gasses is increasing the consumption of wood pellets in the industrial sector. Continued innovations in combustion technology are to be accredited for the impressive growth of the wood pellets market.
