The global wood pellets market size is expected to reach USD 13.38 billion by 2030, exhibiting a revenue-based CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The demand for wood pellets is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to the rising global demand for renewable energy to reduce the usage of fossil fuels that contributes to global warming.

The 2018 adoption of the "Clean Air" program is also driving the usage of wood pellets in the residential sector. As it provides subsidies and low-cost loans for energy-efficiency improvements to single-family homes, has attracted applicants looking to replace their existing heating systems with wood pellets-fed systems.

The commercial heating industry, a huge potential market for pellets, is already showing some exciting advances in Eastern Europe and is expected to continually grow the demand for wood pellets in the commercial sector during the forecast period. They can generate enormous amounts of potable or non-potable hot water for use in big central heating systems for providing process heat during a specific phase of a manufacturing procedure.

As the global electricity demand is rising, new power generation facilities are being established, along with capacity enhancements of the existing ones. Companies are opting for renewable sources to generate electricity owing to stringent implementation of regulations related to carbon emissions which will be driving the demand for wood pellets during the forecast period.

Enviva being one of the biggest wood pellet manufacturers worldwide, in April 2022, declared that it would spend about $250 million in Bond, Mississippi to construct a new wood pellet manufacturing facility. The plant is a crucial part of the company's growth strategy, which aims to double production capacity over the next five years from the present 6.2 million metric tons annually to roughly 13 million metric tons annually.
