Key Market Trends

Small-Scale Digesters to be the Fastest Growing Market

  • The small-scale digestors are digesters with a capacity lesser than 250kW, and due to the lower investment and infrastructure requirement, their share in the global market is growing. Small-scale digesters play an essential role in rural areas of developing nations. Due to inaccessibility to modern technology, digesters are most often used in stoves for cooking and heating purposes.

  • Small-scale digesters not only provide greener energy but also reduce the dependency on hydrocarbon fuels, such as natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas. Small-scale digesters offer food security to economically backward populations.

  • As of 2019, more than 50 million micro digesters were operating around the world, which fed around 126 million people across the world. China had the most micro digesters, with 42 million micro digesters. India had 4.9 million micro digesters. During 2019, China exceeded by 13 million cubic meters of biogas production, while India exceeded by 2 million cubic meters.

  • Although, the share of small-scale digesters is around 24% in 2019, this share is expected to increase gradually during the forecast period. Small-scale digesters are usually prominent in Asian countries like India, Thailand, and China. Gradually the share in the European countries and the United States has also increased. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, as of September 2020, more than 263 anaerobic digester projects were operating on livestock farms in the United States.

  • With government initiatives, usage of biogas for domestic purposes is expected to increase during the forecast period. For instance, the Government of India launched a policy named National Biogas and Manure Management Programme (NBMMP), which provides subsidies to set up biogas plants for domestic uses, mainly for rural and semi-urban/households. During 2017-18, the policy helped set up nearly 49 lakhs micro digesters in India.

Europe to Dominate the Market

  • Europe is dominating the biogas plant market with the maximum volume of biogas production. As of 2019, the region is the largest biogas producer, with around 20,000 biogas plants.

  • According to European Biogas Association, the region produced 167 TWh or 15.8 billion cubic meters (bcm) of biogas and 26 TWh or 2.5 bcm of biomethane, in 2019.

  • According to the Europe Biogas Association (EBA), biogas production in Europe is expected to reach 98 billion cubic meters (bcm) of biomethane by 2050, a 4,800% increase in current levels of production.?

  • In recent years, Europe witnessed significant growth in the installation of biogas plants. As of 2019, according to European Biogas Association, more than 18,202 biogas plants were installed with a total installed capacity of approximately 12 GW, producing about 63,511 GWh of electricity in the same year.?

  • The plan to increase the biogas production is expected to attract investments to build biogas production facilities, which is expected to promote the growth of biogas plants in the near future.
