Report Description

Global Biomethane Market was valued at USD3944.28 million in 2021 and is anticipated to project a robust growth in the forecast period with a CAGR of 5.80% due to massive capital investment and development in Transportation sector and Gas distribution facilities.

Biomethane, also known as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is a near-pure source of Methane produced either by upgrading biogas (which typically is a mixture of methane, carbon dioxide and small quantities of other gases produced by anaerobic digestion of organic matter in a non-oxygenated environment) or through the gasification of solid biomass followed by methanation. Production capacity and Energy content of biomethane precisely depends on the type of feedstock and the production pathway. Upgrading Biogas to Biomethane could be a major driver for future growth in the market. Technological advancements in manufacturing of a portable fabricator for anaerobic digestion can be a breakthrough across the globe in upcoming years.

Commitment for Green and Sustainable future Driving Market Growth

Growing concerns over detrimental effects of carbon emissions has been a significant narrative in pushing the governments up to aggressively investing for setting high potential biogas digester and biogas purification plants. Especially, Private players with elevating ideas, driven by High Return on Investment are investing heavily for a promising future. Automotive and Power Generation are two major end-use application that are establishing a large foundation for the production of biomethane. Although, Biomethane market might face a competition in Automotive sector due to concurrent investment in Electric Vehicles, still it would hold a major share as most of the existing gas distribution network facilities can transport biomethane without substituting with any newly distribution setup.

Compatibility with existing Gas distribution Network

Natural Gas distribution at domestic and industrial level needs a comprehensive and structured pipeline network under which natural gas can be easily supplied for consumption. Biomethane having similarity in its chemical composition and other physical properties with Natural gas derived from conventional sources requires no extra setup to be installed. The existing gas distribution network is self-sufficient to transport renewable natural gas requiring only maintenance for the operation of the gas delivery systems. With an upsurge in the demand of natural gas, investment for gas infrastructure has gone up and opened the doorway of opportunities for a Sustainable Future.

Potential Feedstock for the Biogas production across the globe

Europe being a largest player operating in biomethane industry has huge potential for feedstock procurement. Biomass resources like livestock manure, Agricultural waste, Sewage sludge contributes as a major share in feedstock selection because of their high relative availability in comparison to other feedstock types such as organic household waste that needs proper disposal and segregation. Most of the existing biogas installation in most of the regions across the globe are processing residual sludge from wastewater treatment plants and Municipal solid waste (MSW). However, the range of potential waste feedstock comes with wide variety of limits like food waste, dairy manure, yard wastes, etc. There are many potential energy crops, which have been proven suitable for biogas production like sugarcane, sorghum, Napier grass, as well as woody crops.

Parity in Prices can be uplifted with Production Support

High prices of biomethane (14~18 USD/MMBtu) in 2020 is attributed to high production costs which can be minimized by introducing incentives for encouraging the production of biomethane. Government from different regions across the globe is also conducting several meetings for strengthening the narrative of sustainable development scenario. Investigating the previous year data, it is evident that when prices of natural gas were soared up, biomethane emerged out as a reliable alternative resource which can be foreseen as a prospective fuel for securing Global energy demand at affordable rates.
