Biochar Market Size Worth USD 450.58 Million, Globally, by 2030 at a CAGR of 11.9%

Biochar Market to Experience a Healthy CAGR of 11.9% during 2023-2030; Growing Demand for Climate Smart Agriculture to Increase Soil Fertility to Boost Development: Fortune Business Insights


Pune, India, June 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global biochar market size was worth USD 184.90 million in 2022. The market value is slated to rise from USD 204.69 million in 2023 to USD 204.69 million by 2030 at 11.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Government policies for environment protection to drive the market growth.  Biochar is a charcoal-like material produced from plant materials such as agricultural and forest residues and grass that decay at high temperatures, often during renewable energy production. During the process, the chemical and physical properties of the plant material change into a carbon-rich material, highly porous, and stable as biochar.

 Growing Demand for Climate Smart Agriculture to Increase Soil Fertility will Propel the Market


Market Drivers & Restraints:

Environment Related Concerns Predicted to Fuel the Biochar Market

Biochar, it is mainly produced from the waste materials of biomass, which is suitable for biochar production, including crop residues such as food and forest waste, field and processing residues, and animal manure. Forest biomass, abundant agricultural, municipal biomass are burned, hence a large amount of methane and CO2 is released, which pollute local ground water and surface.

Biomass is used as the feedstock in the pyrolysis reactor and has a set heating and gas flow rate, residence duration, and temperature. The product has certain by-products of this process, such as bio-oil and gas. The expensive products and underlying structural constraints, such as an immature carbon market, a shortage of finance for producers, and shorter timescales for mining land restoration bonds, continue to obstruct the market growth.

 COVID-19 Impact:

COVID-19 Pandemic Caused a Decline in Demand Due to Hinder Market Growth

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 globally, the virus caused the termination of all normal daily activities like going to work, meetings, gathering, and commuting between countries even stepping a foot outside the house. However, the pandemic crisis has affected many industries in various ways, such as the termination of domestic industrial procedures, raw material shortage, decreased production, disruptions in value chains, imports and export stopped, no international transactions, unreachability of new orders and clients, lack of operating staffs, and many other things. Hence, the biochar market growth declined during the pandemic.

Pyrolysis Segment Dominant Market Share Due to its Inexpensive and Convenient Aspects

On the basis of technology, the market is divided into pyrolysis and gasification. Pyrolysis is anticipated to dominate the market due to its widely preferred technology because it is convenient, inexpensive, and can handle various feedstocks.

The gasification segment is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This technology produces smaller quantities of such char in a directly heated, air-introduced reaction vessel. Hence, the biochar market share is anticipated to grow during the forecast period.

Agriculture Segment to Dominate Market Share due to its Extensive Use in Agriculture for Fertilizer

Based on application, the biochar market is divided into Livestock, Agriculture, Power Generation, and others. The agricultural segment is expected to dominate the market. Such charcoal is used extensively in agriculture for fertilizer as it helps reduce agricultural waste and lowers greenhouse gas emissions from the soil.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market Share due to Tremendous Economic Development

Asia Pacific dominated the biggest share of the global market. The importance of the region for carbon sequestration and soil improvement is the driving factor of the market. Moreover, the region’s tremendous agricultural and economic development has contributed to the market expansion.

North America stands the second largest market for char in the world and is expected to expand subsequently owing to increasing demand for organic food and high meat consumption.
