This report segments the biofuel market based on fuel type into four categories: ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, and biojets. Ethanol is expected to hold the largest market share in the biofuel market during the forecast period. Ethanol is often higher in demand owing to its long history of manufacturing and use and its versatility as a gasoline additive. Ethanol is produced from a variety of agricultural feedstocks, including corn and sugarcane. The widespread availability of these feedstocks, as well as established supply chains, contribute to the adoption of ethanol.

Based on the generation, the biofuel market is segmented into first-generation, second-generation, and third-generation. The second-generation segment is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Second-generation biofuels are produced from non-food biomass feedstocks, such as agricultural waste, forestry residues, and energy crops. They offer a number of advantages over first-generation biofuels, which are produced from food crops. Second-generation biofuels are more sustainable, as they do not compete with food production for land and water resources. Increasing global awareness of climate change and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has driven interest in advanced biofuels.

Based on end use, the biofuel market is segmented into transportation, aviation, and others. The aviation segment is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period owing to the large-scale decarbonization activities in the aviation sector in North America and Europe. The US, Norway, the Netherlands, and the UK are contributing significantly to the long-term sustainability plans by funding the biojet fuel infrastructure. In addition, the production of bio jet fuel is expected to scale up rapidly in the coming decade due to growing research and developments in technological pathways to commercialize the use of alternative jet fuels.
