COVID-19 Impact

In-Depth Qualitative COVID 19 Outbreak Impact Analysis Include Identification and Investigation of The Following Aspects:

Falling Ethanol Prices amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Retard Market Growth

The outbreak of the COVID-19 contagion has threatened to cause long-term damage on many industries. One of them is the transport industry, which is experiencing sharp decline in demand. The trickle-down effect is being witnessed in an even steeper fall in biofuel prices, especially ethanol prices.
According to a study conducted by Purdue University, the average monthly price of ethanol fell from $1.32/gallon in December 2019 to $0.82/gallon in March 2020 due to rapid decline in demand for transport services. Reduced profit margins of ethanol producers have slowed down production of ethanol, which is expected to further cripple the Liquid Biofuels market growth during 2020.

Liquid Biofuels Market Drivers:

Substitution of Conventional Fuels with Biofuels to Propel Market Growth

Shortage of conventional fuels such as oil & natural gas and environmental degradation caused by them are major global problems. Production and use of renewable energy resources are likely to help overcome these problems. Biofuels are majorly used as substitutes of petroleum-based fuels for transport, and they are considered as a part of important strategies to improve fuel security, mitigate climate change, and support infrastructure development.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, ethanol produces around 48% less carbon dioxide than conventional gasoline. Moreover, biodiesel releases only 25% of the amount of CO2 that conventional diesel releases, making it a much more attractive option from the standpoint of the environment. Aviation is one of the major consumers of energy in the transport industry. In 2018, aviation biofuel production was about 15 million liters. To date, more than 150,000 flights have used biofuels. Thus, several benefits associated with these new-age fuels are furthering the Liquid Biofuels market growth.

Regional Insights:

Increasing Production of Biofuels in the US to Accelerate Market Growth in North America

With North America accounting for 45% of the global biofuel production, the region is well-positioned to dominate the Liquid Biofuels market share in the foreseeable future. The US is largest producer of ethanol worldwide, having produced 15.8 billion gallons of ethanol in 2019 alone. In 2019, the region’s market size stood at USD 42.96 billion.

Latin America is expected to emerge as the second most dominant region in the market, supported by surging ethanol production in Brazil. Besides this, Argentina is also aggressively expanding its renewable energy sector, which bodes well for this market. Europe being the largest producer and consumer of biodiesel in the world is expected to offer several lucrative opportunities for players in this market.

Competitive Landscape

Production Capacity Elevation Measures to be Implemented by Market Players

Competition in the Liquid Biofuels market is characterized by the variety of strategies implemented by the players to consolidate their position in this market. Prominent among these are the measures adopted by these companies to enhance their production capabilities to meet the rising demand for biofuels around the world.

Exhaust from motor vehicles is one of the biggest contributors of air pollution in the world. The US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that on-road automobiles cause 75% of carbon monoxide pollution in the country. The European Parliament has also stated that 72% of the EU’s carbon emissions come from road transport. To address the issues surrounding escalating air pollution levels, Liquid Biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel have emerged as the most viable and feasible substitutes to conventional fossil fuels such as petrol. Governments around the world are actively promoting the adoption of biofuels for transport activities as the carbon-based fuels carry heavy environmental as well as human health costs. Liquid biofuel can be used in various applications such as transportation fuel, heating fuel, and electricity generation fuel. Liquid biofuels have been considered as an alternative solution for petroleum-based fuels, which are considered unsustainable and expensive.
