Prominent companies in this market include ABB (Switzerland), Siemens (Germany), General Electric (US), Prysmian Group (Italy), Nexans (France), and Schneider Electric (France).

The Agriculture Waste, by feedstock, is expected to grow at the second highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on feedstock, the biomass power generation market has been split into agriculture waste, forest waste, municipal waste and animal waste. Agriculture waste is expected to grow at the second highest CAGR during the forecast period. Agricultural biomass has the potential to be a precursor material for the production of sustainable energy. The energy content of biomass varies according to crop species. Rice straw, for example, has an energy content of about 3015 kcal/kg, whereas hay has an energy content of about 3738 kcal/kg. Companies such as Babcock & Wilcox (US), Xcel Energy Inc. (US), and Chanderpur Group (India) utilize agricultural waste to generate electricity.

The solid fuel segment, by fuel, is expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period

This report segments the biomass power generation market based on fuel into three segments: Solid fuel, liquid fuel and gaseous fuel. The solid fuel segment is expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period. Solid fuels are generally woody biomass, which are directly burnt for the generation of electricity. Abundant availability of woody biomass and clean substitution to fossil fuels are major drivers for growth of solid fuel in biomass power generation.

This research report categorizes the biomass power generation market by feedstock, technology, fuel and region.

On the basis of feedstock:

  • Agriculture Waste
  • Forest Waste
  • Animal Waste
  • Municipal Waste

On the basis of technology:

  • Combustion
  • Gasification
  • Anaerobic Digestion
  • Pyrolysis

On the basis of fuel:

  • Solid Fuel
  • Liquid Fuel
  • Gaseous Fuel

On the basis of region:
