Market Drivers and Restraints:

Mounting Demand from the Automotive Industry to Boost Market Growth

One of the major reasons for the increase in the demand for bio-methane is the generation of the demand from the automotive industry which is projected to boost the biomethane market growth. A German Energy Agency named Deutsche Energie Agentur (DENA) reported in 2020 that filling station sales exceeded 1 TWh, which was around 733 GWh in 2019.

However, massive financial investment for installing the facility and extremely combustible nature of the gas is expected to obstruct the market development.

Organic Residue & Waste to Dictate Due to its Easy Convenience

On the basis of feedstock the market is divided into organic residue & wastes and energy crops. Organic residue & wastes segment accounts for the major part due to the easy convenience of raw material globally. China has an agricultural waste worth of 4.8 billion tons. Organic residue & waste is divided into biowaste, municipal waste, sewage waste, and agriculture waste.

Anaerobic Digestion Segment to Dominate the Market Owing to its Cost-effectiveness

The anaerobic digestion segment is majorly dominating the market with 78.15% shares. Recently, anaerobic digestion units have been developed worldwide, especially in the U.S., Europe, and China. The U.S. presents the highest total biogas production but originates from landfill at 75%. This country's 1,497 anaerobic plants treat sewage sludge, biowaste, and agricultural & industrial wastes. On the other hand, biogas production in Germany is mainly based on farming and industrial wastes.

Power Generation to Head Due to Increasing Requirement of Electric Grid Networks  

On the basis of application, the market is segmented into automotive, power generation, and others. Power generation segment is estimated to have a major part due to the augmented requirement for electric grid networks in residential sectors for various uses such as water heating and cooking. The automotive segment is also estimated to have sizeable growth due to the rising demand for renewable natural gas for vehicle fuel.
