There has been an unprecedented interest in biofuels over the past decade, primarily due to increase in crude oil prices, as this is affecting the economy of many countries that do not have significant oil and gas reserves. High dependence on non-renewable fuels has resulted in economic as well as environmental concerns, such as rising GHG emission levels. Several developing and developed countries have implemented regulatory reforms, blending targets and statutory norms regarding use of biofuels like biodiesel to offset the growing environmental risk associated with conventional fuels.

The feedstock used in the production of biodiesel are agriculture based and can be grown locally, which reduces dependence on external markets. Biodiesel feedstock will help those countries that are highly reliant on agricultural income, as it will lead to optimal use of agricultural wasteland, along with increasing employment opportunities. The feedstock used for the production of biodiesel is also used as food, and this has resulted in conflict with the food sector, leading to an industry-wide debate of “Food vs Fuel.” Diversion of feedstock toward production of fuel has led to a shortage and increase in prices of food products. This led to the development of second- and third-generation biodiesels, which use non-food crops as feedstock.

The analysts forecast global biodiesel market to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% over the period 2014-2019.
