The Business Research Company’s global market reports are now updated with the latest market sizing information for the year 2023 and forecasted to 2032



The global second-generation biofuels market is poised for substantial growth, forecasted to increase from $6.44 billion in 2022 to $8.28 billion in 2023 at a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.5%. Looking ahead to 2027, the market is expected to reach a substantial $21.35 billion, maintaining a robust CAGR of 26.7%. This blog dives into the environmental benefits that are driving the second-generation biofuels market, spotlights key industry players, and explores the emerging trends in the sector.


Fueling a Greener Future

The Environmental Advantages of Biofuels

The soaring demand for second-generation biofuels is primarily propelled by the high usage of biofuels due to their remarkable environmental benefits. Biofuels are derived from biological materials such as trees, agricultural waste, crops, or grass. Their ability to replace fossil fuels offers the potential to mitigate some of the adverse environmental consequences of fossil fuel extraction and usage. Biofuels are notably friendlier to the environment, significantly reducing issues such as conventional and greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution emissions, finite resource depletion, and dependence on unstable foreign suppliers. These merits have given biofuel usage a pivotal role, contributing to the growth of the second-generation biofuels market.



A Biofuel Boom

Witnessing the Biofuel Surge

The momentum behind biofuels is demonstrated by the surge in biodiesel production in the United States. In 2020, biodiesel production in the U.S. reached a staggering 1,814,698,074 gallons, marking a substantial increase from the 1,724,506,560 gallons produced in 2019, as revealed by the U.S. Bioenergy Statistics report published by the United States Department of Agriculture. This data underlines the rapidly growing adoption of biofuels and their expanding role in the energy landscape.
