Factors such as the escalating concerns over the rising greenhouse gas emissions and mounting need for biodiesel-based fuel, owing to the environmental concerns associated with fossil fuel combustion, will steer the biodiesel market growth during the forecast period (2021–2030). According to P&S Intelligence, the market revenue reached around $39 billion in 2020. Besides, the soaring number of research and development (R&D) projects being launched in the renewable energy sector and rising number of government initiatives and regulations mandating the adoption of biodiesel will also facilitate the market growth in the upcoming years.
The soaring concerns being raised over carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gases, such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HCs), and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions act as the key contributor to the market growth. Biodiesel emits 50% lesser greenhouse gases than conventional fuels and it is also free of aromatic and sulfur compounds. For instance, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in 2019, around 43 billion gallons of biodiesel were consumed in the U.S.

The application segment of the biodiesel market is categorized into fuel, power generation, and others, such as military, mining, and healthcare. Under this segment, the fuel category generated the highest revenue during the historical year (2015–2020), and it is also expected to exhibit the fastest growth during the forecast years. This is due to the surging consumption of biodiesel as a fuel in the marine, automotive, and marine industries, owing to its ability to reduce wear and friction in engines. The fuel category is further classified into automotive, agricultural, marine, and others, including aircraft and railway..
In recent years, companies operating in the biodiesel market have been focusing on collaborations to gain a significant position. For instance, in March 2021, Renewable Energy Group entered into a collaboration with Optimus Technologies to offer B100 fuel to naval fleets in the U.S. to help them achieve their sustainability goals. Similarly, in October 2019, BioD Energy Pvt. Ltd. collaborated with Zomato Pvt. Ltd. to mitigate the wastage of used cooking oil. The used cooking oil being collected by Zomato is converted to biodiesel by BioD Energy Pvt. Ltd.

Geographically, Europe accounted for the largest share in the biodiesel market in 2020. This was due to the soaring number of government initiatives and regulations for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions in the region. For instance, the Euro VI emission vehicle emission standards on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) limit the emission of CO, HC+NOx, and NOx from diesel-powered light-duty vehicles to 0.5 g/km, 0.17 g/km, and 0.08 g/km, respectively. Whereas, the gasoline light-duty vehicles have an emission limit of 1.0 g/km, 0.1 g/km, and 0.06 g/km of CO, HC, and NOx, respectively.
Therefore, the growing concerns being raised over the rising greenhouse gas emissions and escalating R&D expenditure in renewable energy production will fuel the market growth in the coming years.
