Global Biofuels Market Outlook Report 2018

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, May 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Biofuels Global Market Outlook 2017-2021" report has been added to's offering.

The report gathers data on biofuel across the countries leading the market for biofuel. The report covers: costs, drivers, inhibitors, market growth, forecasts, the key players, key feedstock available, and the prominent biofuel power technology utilized in each of the key countries, including: the US, Germany, Brazil, the UK.

Key Features:

  • Identification of the most promising countries in the biofuel and highlights how various geographic markets are expanding their share in the total energy supply mix using biofuel.
  • Five-year assessment of the latest biofuel technology and installed biofuel capacity.
  • Liquid biofuel market trends and costs.
  • List of major key players of biofuel renewable energy.
  • Information on government policy framework on biofuel for supporting the biofuel market.
  • Identification of biofuel energy development and potential resource globally and in major countries in the future.
  • Analysis across countries with abundant feedstock availability including Brazil, India, Germany, China, and the UK - biofuel feedstock production is led by competition for available land and water resources, oil and electric vehicle prices.

Key Highlights

  • The potential for liquid biofuels is indicated by the world's dependence on crude oil for transportation, with estimations signaling that fuels from crude oil currently supply about 96% of the worldwide energy demand for transport purposes.
  • The combination of biomass and biofuels accounted for around 71% of the world's total renewable energy production in 2015 and comprised around 10% of total global energy supply.
  • All renewables together currently represent around 19% of final energy consumption and biofuels for transport comprising around 4% of renewable energy consumption.
