Liquid Biofuels Market to Hit USD 219.97 Billion by 2027; Increasing Trade Activities Via Road Transport Networks to Stoke Demand for Biofuels: Fortune Business Insights™

Jul 20, 2020

Key Companies Covered in Liquid Biofuel Market Research Report Are Butamax Advanced Biofuels, LLC (U.S.), Gevo, Inc. (U.S.), Eniven Group (Slovakia), Emami Agrotech Limited (India), Fulcrum BioEnergy, Inc. (U.S.), Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (U.S.), Enerkem (Canada), ADM (U.S.), Pacific Ethanol, Inc. (U.S.), BIO OILS ENERGY (Spain), Bangchak Corporation Public Company Limited (Thailand), Algenol (U.S.), CropEnergies AG (Germany), Renewable Biofuels Inc. (U.S.), POET (U.S.). | Source: Fortune Business Insights Pune, July 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global Liquid Biofuels market size is projected to reach USD 219.97 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period. Surging vehicular pollution levels across the globe is expected to feed the growth of this market, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Liquid Biofuels Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis By Product Type (Ethanol and Biodiesel), By Feedstock (Sugar Crops, Starch Crops, Vegetable Oils, Animal Fats, and Others), By Process (Fermentation, Transesterification, and Others), By Application (Transportation, Power Generation, and Heat), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Get Sample PDF Brochure: https://www.fortunebusinessinsights.com/enquiry/sample/liquid-biofuels-market-103294 Exhaust from motor vehicles is one of the biggest contributors of air pollution in the world. The US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that on-road automobiles cause 75% of carbon monoxide pollution in the country. The European Parliament has also stated that 72% of the EU’s carbon emissions come from road transport. To address the issues surrounding escalating air pollution levels, Liquid Biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel have emerged as the most viable and feasible substitutes to conventional fossil fuels such as petrol. Governments around the world are actively promoting the adoption of biofuels for transport activities as the carbon-based fuels carry heavy environmental as well as human health costs. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has shattered the manufacturing processes of several companies worldwide. However, some of them have commenced these processes by keeping in mind the stringent norms, such as social distancing and low workforce. Our specially developed research reports would help you in overcoming the losses of your business by choosing the right strategy apt for the current situation. To get to know more about the short-term and long-term impacts of COVID-19 on this market, please visit: https://www.fortunebusinessinsights.com/liquid-biofuels-market-103294 As per the report findings, the global market value stood at USD 116.00 billion in 2019. The report also contains the following: Piecemeal study of all market segments and their performance; Actionable research into the upcoming market opportunities; Critical insights into the factors driving and restraining the market growth; and Detailed examination of the regional dynamics and competitive landscape of the market. Market Restraint Falling Ethanol Prices amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Retard Market Growth The outbreak of the COVID-19 contagion has threatened to cause long-term damage on many industries. One of them is the transport industry, which is experiencing sharp decline in demand. The trickle-down effect is being witnessed in an even steeper fall in biofuel prices, especially ethanol prices. According to a study conducted by Purdue University, the average monthly price of ethanol fell from $1.32/gallon in December 2019 to $0.82/gallon in March 2020 due to rapid decline in demand for transport services. Reduced profit margins of ethanol producers have slowed down production of ethanol, which is expected to further cripple the Liquid Biofuels market growth during 2020. In Canada, the national government is attempting to ease implementation of low-carbon fuels as the country’s oil sector has taken a severe blow due to the pandemic. Growing turmoil in the hydrocarbon industry as a result of the coronavirus will, therefore, stem the uptake of Liquid Biofuels in the current year.
