World Biofuels

As Quoted In Forbes

Global biofuel demand will grow 10.3 percent annually through 2014. Bioethanol will see the greatest gains, driven by the large North American market as well as the faster growing markets in the Asia/Pacific region and Europe. The smaller biodiesel market will be the more rapidly growing segment.

This study analyzes the 74.1 million metric ton global biofuel industry. It presents historical demand and production data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (e.g., bioethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, pure vegetable oil, biobutanol), world region and for 28 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, reviews technology, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry participants, including Archer-Daniels-Midland, POET and Copersucar.
