Dublin, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Biodiesel Market by Blend, Feedstock, Application, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2029" report has been added to's offering.

The research report titled provides an in-depth analysis of the biodiesel market in five major geographies and emphasizes on the current market trends, market size, market shares, recent developments, and forecasts to 2029. In terms of value, the biodiesel market is expected to reach $51.47 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period 2022-2029.

The growth of this market is driven by the increase in consumption of biodiesel, the rising environmental concerns, and the increasing demand for biodiesel to replace fuels in transportation and power generation.

However, performance concerns in diesel engines are expected to hinder the growth of this market to a certain extent. Moreover, government support from North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific countries is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the biodiesel market.

The global biodiesel market is segmented by blend type (B100, B20, B10, and B5), feedstock (vegetable oils, animal fats, used cooking oil (UCO), and others), and application (fuel, power generation, and others). The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the regional and country-level markets.

Based on feedstock, the UCO segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global biodiesel market during the forecast period. The fast growth of this segment is mainly attributed to the increasing food service industry and the growing use of used cooking oil in the production process of biodiesel. Furthermore, the growing awareness about environmental welfare and sustainable energy resources and the high use of UCO in China and India is expected to spur the demand for UCO in biodiesel production.

Based on the application, the fuel segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global biodiesel market during the forecast period. The large market share of this segment is attributed to its increased use as fuel in automotive, agriculture, and marine industries, the rising environmental concerns, and the increasing pollution due to pollutants from petrol or diesel-based automobiles. Furthermore, biodiesel fuel is highly demanded in the automotive industry as it emits fewer greenhouse gases.

Based on geography, Asia-Pacific is slated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The fast growth of the biodiesel market in Asia-Pacific is attributed to the increasing government blend mandates and environmental concerns over petroleum diesel usage. Furthermore, a growing preference for replacing fossil fuels related to higher greenhouse gas emissions is persuading the demand for biodiesels in these countries. Hence, with the increasing blend percentage in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and India, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
