Three quarters of the 27.9 billion gallon global biofuels market of 2012 was for bioethanol, with the remaining quarter consisting of biodiesel sales. The U.S. and Brazil dominate the bioethanol market, with the two countries accounting for 85% of production and 82% of global consumption. This makes the global fuel ethanol market very reliant on the markets of these two countries, a difficult prospect since Brazil’s bioethanol market has been in decline since 2009 and the U.S. market has stagnated since 2010. In the U.S., the biggest issues are the “blend wall” and the poor corn harvest of 2012. In Brazil, a combination of successive poor sugarcane harvests, strong international sugar prices and a smaller domestic price spread between ethanol and gasoline has seen a growing number of motorists choosing to use gas rather than ethanol for their flex-fuel vehicles in the last four years.

Europe, spearheaded by Germany and France, is the largest biodiesel producer in the world, as well as the largest market. However, market growth for biodiesel has slowed considerably since 2009 as EU policy moves away from supporting biofuels produced from food feedstocks such as rapeseed oil, while domestic biodiesel production has declined since 2010 because of the influx of cheaper biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia. New regulations coming into effect in 2013 will limit the amount of mandated biodiesel producers can make from food crops, and will cause depressed conditions for the region's biodiesel market through to 2020.

The forecast for the global biofuels market over the next decade is one of only single digit growth, as consumption in the U.S. and Brazil for bioethanol, and consumption in the EU for biodiesel, experience only modest gains. Less political support for biofuels in most of the key regional markets for both bioethanol and biodiesel is going to slow growth of the global biofuels market through the next decade and result in a total of 41.7 billion gallons sold in 2022, a CAGR of just 4.0% between 2013 and 2022.

World Biofuels Market by SBI Energy provides key insight into current and future trends for both the production and sales of biofuels and biofuel blends in key geographic segments around the world. The analysis includes definitions, current product offerings and market detail on the following liquid biofuel segments:
  • Bio-based ethanol, including both pure bioethanol fuels and blends of bioethanol and gasoline
  • Diesel fuel created through transesterification or hydrotreating of plant and animal oils
The report also studies the key elements driving biofuels adoption, pricing and employment within the biofuels sector.

Report Methodology

This report contains primary and secondary data obtained from government sources, trade associations and publications, business journals, scientific papers, company literature, investment reports and interviews with industry professionals. Statistics on biofuel production primarily comes from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Brazil’s National Agency for Oil, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) and Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), Eurostat, other national statistics offices and various national biofuel trade associations. Price data for biofuels, feedstocks and coproducts comes from a number of sources including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
