Nov 04, 2015, 10:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Biodiesel Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Covered in this report

This report covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global biodiesel market for the period 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers the annual production of biodiesel globally. It also provides the geographical segmentation based on three major regions:

  • Americas
  • EMEA
  • APAC

Benefits of biodiesel in reducing GHGs and energy insecurity have captured the interest of governments globally. With the biodiesel production gaining momentum and finding more applications, the need to comply with environmental regulations has gained importance. The feedstock used for the production of biodiesel varies from region to region. The biodiesel market faces competition from the food sector for feedstock. This has increased the prices. Therefore, to balance the use, specific regional governments are overseeing the situations by setting environmental regulations regarding the composition and quality of the biodiesel produced.

According to the report, the large-scale production of biodiesel and scientific advancements have improved fuel quality, increasing the scope of biodiesel use from conventional road transport to aviation, public transport, railways, and military. The cost of production of biodiesel is relatively high (compared to conventional fuels), but the subsidies offered by many governments strengthen the market prospects for biofuels and continue to drive the demand for biodiesel in many countries.

Further, the report states that the reduction in oil prices and the high costs of biodiesel production are some challenges for biodiesel consumption.
