Report Overview

The global biogas market size was valued at USD 60.06 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% from 2022 to 2030. The market is expected to witness growth on account of the rising product demand from various applications such as electricity, heat, vehicle fuel, upgraded biogas, and cooking gas. Shifting focus toward the use of renewable energy, particularly in the electric power sector, has significantly driven the demand for biogas in electricity applications. In addition, the increasing need to reduce dependency on fossil fuels is creating lucrative opportunities for biogas in vehicle fuel applications.

 U.S. biogas market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (Revenue, USD Billion)

The U.S. is one of the largest markets for biogas in North America in 2021 and is projected to grow at a significant CAGR in terms of value over the forecast period. The United States government has introduced several regulations to lessen its dependency on conventional fuels and meet the goal of zero carbon emissions. Significant factors that are influencing the biogas market growth such as favorable regulatory & political support, environmental support, customer support, and geopolitical support, agricultural and economic support.

The demand for biogas in North America is primarily driven by the U.S. The growing demand for the product in applications, such as cooking gas, electricity, vehicle fuel, heat, and others, is expected to have a positive impact on the industry growth over the forecast period. Major factors supporting the growth of the market include high demand for green fuels, stringent environmental regulations, and increased investment in the development of refineries.

The abrupt onset of the COVID-19 pandemic caused an industrial lockdown that brought all manufacturing activity to a grinding halt in most industries around the world. Hence, it has also impacted product demand in heat generation applications. Sluggish industrial activities have reduced the demand for heat consumption, thereby negatively affecting the demand for biogas.

Source Insights

The municipal source segment led the market and accounted for 41.55% revenue share in 2021. The growing usage of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in the production of biogas to reduce landfills and the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions is expected to support the demand in the market over the forecast period.

The industrial segment is expected to witness significant growth over the estimated period. The growing interest in finding effective means to obtain bio-products and biofuel from industrial food waste coupled with an increasing need for wastewater treatment in the industrial sector is expected to fuel the demand for biogas over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The electricity application segment led the market and accounted for about 30% revenue share in 2020. The growing attention to the use of renewable energy, particularly in the electric power sector, has significantly increased the use of biogas for electricity generation.

Global biogas market share, by application, 2021 (%)

In 2019, approximately 220 million kWh of electricity was generated using biogas (from 24 livestock and dairy operations) and from industrial and sewage wastewater treatment facility approx. 1 billion kWh of electricity was produced. Biogas in the country qualifies as renewable energy fuel to generate electricity as per the state renewable electricity standards (RES).

Upgrade biogas application is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to the rising demand for biofuel in various end-use industries including automotive is expected to fuel the market demand. Upgrade biogas is produced by converting biogas into biomethane by removing hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, water, and contaminants from the biogas.

Regional Insights

Europe was the dominant regional segment in 2021 and accounted for about 42% of the revenue share. The growth is attributed to technological developments and increasing investments in the region's refinery industry. Companies across Europe are investing huge capital in the R&D of biogas production from existing sources and planning to increase the share of feedstock over the next few years, which will fuel the demand for biogas in the region.

In Italy, the market is driven by the efforts of the government to move toward decarbonization. For instance, in March 2021, Eni SpA (BIT: ENI) has agreed to buy an Italian biogas company from FRI-EL Greenpower, a Gostner family holding, through its circular economy subsidiary Ecofuel. The acquisition must be approved by the relevant antitrust authorities before it can be completed.
