Technology – Segment Analysis
In 2018, pyrolysis holds the largest share in the biochar market, as pyrolysis is the most efficient production process among the various available manufacturing technologies. However the increasing need for electricity generation has shown a moderate increase in the use of gasification technology.
Application – Segment Analysis
The agricultural segment held the largest share of the biochar market in 2018. Biochar helps to enhance water and fertilizer holding capacity and increase soil biological productivity, which helps to provide crop nutrition and accelerate growth. General farming is a major segment of agricultural applications, which is expected to rise significantly and increase the demand for the overall market due to increased awareness among farmers through research groups and institutes.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America holds the largest share of more than 45% in the biochar market and is expected to see significant growth with increased demand for organic food and high meat consumption. Biochar awareness is very high in this region compared to others, and the farming community has more knowledge of the product and its benefits. However on the back of rapidly growing emerging economies such as India and China, the Asia-Pacific biochar market is expected to see the fastest growth in coming years.
Drivers – Biochar Market
Government regulation is supporting market growth.
The regulatory authorities governing the market are the EU Commission and the U.S. EPA. It has governed the use of products in agricultural production and the management of waste. The U.S. EPA and the EU Commission have released numerous rules on the production and consumption of the product. As the company is still in the preliminary stage, there are enormous opportunities to grow in the future for the production of blended products.
Challenges – Biochar Market
Technological barriers and high investments for large production.
Biochar can be produced at small and large scales. Small-scale production can be done by pyrolysis using low-cost modified stoves and kilns and relatively simple technology. Large-scale production requires larger technological plants and adequate feedstocks, which are more capital-intensive. This is, therefore, acting as a challenge in the biochar market.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Biochar Market.
