This study intends to analyse diverse aspects of the global biogas upgrading market. The insights offered in this report are expected to aid in market growth examination over the forecast timeline.

Market Analysis in Brief

The biogas upgrading market is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years, driven by factors such as the increasing demand for renewable energy sources, government policies promoting the use of biogas, and growing concerns about climate change. Biogas upgrading is a process that removes impurities from biogas to produce biomethane, a renewable natural gas that can be used as a substitute for fossil fuels. The biomethane produced can be used in transportation, heating, and power generation, providing a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy source. The market is expected to see continued growth as more countries adopt policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a low-carbon economy.

Key Report Findings

  • The global biogas upgrading market was valued at about US$1.6 Bn in 2020
  • The dairy and livestock farming sectors are the largest source of biogas feedstock
  • The transportation sector is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the years ahead
  • Air Liquide is the largest biogas upgrading company in the world
  • Europe is the largest market for biogas upgrading

Growth Drivers

Technological Advancements, and Growing Demand for Natural Gas

Biogas upgrading technology continues to evolve, with many organizations investing greater sums toward research and development initiatives to augment the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the entire process. Novel technologies such as cryogenic upgrading, membrane separation, and pressure swing adsorption, help drive-down costs and boost the production of biomethane. As per the analysis by Fairfield Market Research, the global biogas upgrading market is expected to achieve a valuation of over US$1000 Mn by 2025, at a favorable projected CAGR.

Additionally, there continues to be growing demand for natural gas around the world. This is primarily driven by the expansion of the transportation sector and the need for cleaner-burning energy sources. Biogas upgrading allows for the production of renewable natural gas, which in turn can aid in meeting this growth in demand.

Moreover, biogas upgrading technology is seen as a means to improve air quality by lowering greenhouse gas emissions, as biomethane is a renewable alternative to fossil fuels. As the need for practices that mitigate the negative impacts of fossil fuels on the environment grows, so does the demand for alternative energy solutions such as this, thus boosting market growth prospects in the process.

Increasing Investments, and Favorable Energy Policies of Governments

Several governments as well as private entities are continuing to channel funding and incentives such as tax credits, low-interest loans, and grants, toward the development of renewable energy infrastructure is expected to further augment the expansion of the global biogas upgrading industry.

Moreover, these governments are implementing renewable energy policies to achieve energy independence and reduce their given carbon footprint. These policies are expected to boost the development of natural gas pipelines to increase the adoption of biogas upgrading technology, owing to the benefits that biomethane offers in comparison to traditional fossil fuels. Factors such as these are expected to have a positive influence on the growth trajectory of the global biogas upgrading market in the years ahead.

Growth Challenges

Limited Feedstock Availability, High Capital costs, and Lack of Infrastructure

The availability of feedstock such as sewage sludge, agricultural waste, and food waste can be limited in certain countries or regions. This can have a negative impact on the biogas production and upgrading potential. Similarly, the initial investments needed to setup a biogas upgrading plant can be high. This is due to the expensive nature of the equipment and technology needed. As such, it could act as an entry-restraining element for certain companies, particularly small-sized organizations.

Additionally, a lack of biogas upgrading infrastructure, particularly in certain developing nations can hinder the further adoption of this technology. These factors are expected to potentially restrain growth prospects for the global biogas upgrading market.

Growth Opportunities Across Regions

Europe Continues to Lead

North America is expected to index a significant growth rate in the coming years owing to favourable governmental support and the presence of a well-established biogas industry in the region. Asia Pacific is also expected to register significant growth due to the increasing demand for renewable energy resources as well as the presence of a vast agricultural sector that can effectively supply a source of biogas feedstock.

However, Europe is expected to remain a frontrunner in the global biogas upgrading market on account of a well-developed infrastructure, the adoption of renewables, and progressive governmental support in this region.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
