logoMarket Overview

Biogas is produced by fermenting biomass at a biogas plant. The substrate used to produce this methane-containing gas often comprises waste materials like compost or food waste or energy crops like corn. At the end of the procedure, the substrates' dissolving waste can be used as fertilizer. The substrate is broken down by tiny bacteria under anaerobic (oxygen-free) conditions, which results in the production of biogas. The substrate is dragged into the fermenters to accomplish this. In order to prevent the buildup of sinking layers and surface scum, the substrate is systematically downshifted by agitators after being put in anaerobic conditions.

Additionally, it makes it easier for the biogas to ascend. An anaerobic digester of organic matter to treat trash and simultaneously produce biogas fuel is a well-built biogas plant. The biogas is mostly made of methane gas with inert gases like carbon dioxide and nitrogen, whereas the processed waste is a nutrient- and nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Biogas facilities can be used to process human waste and are a preferred substitute for burning dry animal dung as fuel. Other feedstock options include plant matter, non-meat or greasy food wastes, and the majority of animal dung varieties.

logoCovid-19 Impact

Numerous travel and work restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic are anticipated to reduce the amount of oil and gas used by the world's energy system by billions of barrels and trillions of cubic meters in 2020. Globally, there are significant problems with bioenergy projects because of this pandemic. The lack of raw materials, parts, and technical support has had a significant negative influence on project development operations, which has caused delays. For instance, Strabag, a major competitor in the market and one of the top infrastructure providers, has stopped all of its operations as of March 2020. The company's operations and seamless operation have been slowed down by the pandemics, which have forced the postponement or suspension of numerous biomethane and biogas projects. In comparison to other years, the revenue of the number of market companies has decreased. For instance, Strabag's 2020 income has decreased by 4.1%.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Increasing adoption of renewables to drive market expansion

One of the key drivers propelling construction globally is the increasing use of renewable energy sources in different nations' overall power mixes. The main goals of governing authorities in nations all over the world have been to both reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and fulfill rising energy demands. The installation of renewable energy sources is anticipated to increase significantly over the next ten years in order to meet these goals, which will ultimately result in the market's growth. According to the IEA, a sizable fraction of the biogas produced globally is used for co-generation and power production.

For instance, in 2019, of the entire amount of biogas produced, about 65% was used for power and cogeneration, and the remaining 20% was converted to bio-methane or used for building heating. The market size has been positively impacted by new energy targets that have been introduced by various governments to encourage the tendency toward sustainable electricity. For instance, by the end of 2023, Brazil wants to source 42.5% of its main energy from renewable sources. Research by Carbon Brief indicates that the U.K. By 2025, the government hopes to be using half of the renewable sources of energy.

logo Restraints

  • High initial investments for establishing plants may hinder market growth

The amount of money needed to determine construction expenses is very significant. A plant's construction costs cover labor, land, materials, engineering, and equipment. The building of these facilities receives financial support from numerous nations across the world. The supply chain is also expensive and time-consuming because it involves gathering, sorting, processing, and distributing feedstock, operating and maintaining plants, and selling and distributing the gas generated.

logo Opportunity

  • Expanding utilization of organic waste for energy production to bring up market growth avenues

Over the past few years, population growth, migration from rural to urban regions, and increased waste production have all contributed to a jump in energy demand. According to the UN, around 68% of the world's population will reside in urban areas by 2050. Undoubtedly, this will call for increasing waste treatment capacity, which will spur the global biogas plant construction market expansion. A variety of organic materials, including commercial & household food waste, agricultural waste, municipal & industrial sewage, and livestock manures, can be converted into biogas in biogas plants. In the upcoming years, these capabilities are anticipated to serve as growth accelerators for the industry, along with increased waste creation.

logo Challenges

  • Challenges associated with organic agriculture to pose challenge to market

Given that more than 80% of the world's population resides in developing nations, organic agriculture, waste management, renewable energy, and healthcare all face significant global difficulties. Over 90% of agricultural waste is frequently dumped in uncontrolled landfills, burned outdoors, or managed with composting. In fact, using biogas technology to solve waste & energy issues and increase agricultural production by using biogas leftovers as organic fertilizers is a renewable and environmentally friendly technology.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global biogas plant construction market is segmented based on product type, end user, and region

On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into wet digestion and dry digestion. Due to the financial incentives offered by the government and commercial organizations to owners of biogas plants as well as the advantageous nature of the rules being set up, wet digestion is predicted to expand at the fastest CAGR.

On the basis of end-user, the market has been segmented into industrial and agricultural. Market share for biogas plants made up the majority of agricultural waste. Organic waste material generated in the agriculture sector is included in agricultural waste. The potential for using energy crops, herbaceous plants raised particularly for the purpose of producing bioenergy, is expanding at the same time.

logoRecent Developments:

  • In March 2021, Weltech Biopower will have constructed more than 200 biogas plants across all of Europe. Weltech Biopower is currently working on the largest biogas plant in the world, which will be built in Germany. The plant will have four fermenters, six digestate storage tanks, and one liquid reservoir. It is anticipated to produce 6 million cubic meters of biogas annually.
  • In March 2021, BTS Biogas, an Italian business that invented next-generation anaerobic digestion facilities, said that it was expanding its operations in North America. America will be Bioenergy Devco's (BDC) official technology provider. These businesses will collaborate to facilitate the engineering, building, and operation of sustainable anaerobic digestion projects across the nation.
  • In June 2022, EnviTech began building on the expansion of the business's original Lohne, Lower Saxony, facilities. Additionally, an additional 640 square meters will increase the office's total capacity to 3,000 square meters, 750 of which will be used for storage.
