Factors influencing the growth of the global biomethane market 

The global biomethane market is expanding rapidly due to factors such as financial incentives, policies in support, versatility of applications, extensive R&D activities, successful waste management, energy security, and environmental benefits associated with biomethane. On the other hand, the market is facing a downturn due to complex technological processes in production and challenges in optimizing these processes for cost effectiveness and efficiency. Nevertheless, countries and communities are estimated to decrease their dependence on fossil fuels by using locally available sustainable waste materials. This reduces exposure to geopolitical risks regarding fossil fuels and improves energy security.

The anaerobic digestion segment to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period 

On the basis of production method, the anaerobic digestion segment contributed for the highest share of more than three-fifths of the overall market revenue in 2022. The same segment would showcase the fastest growth with 5.8% CAGR throughout the forecast timeframe. Biomethane, generated through the anaerobic digestion process, is recognized as a renewable energy source. It is derived from organic materials that would naturally decay and emit methane, a potent greenhouse gas, into the environment. Furthermore, continuous improvements in anaerobic digestion technologies, process refinement, and supportive policies play a pivotal role in addressing these challenges and encouraging the wider use of biomethane as a sustainable energy alternative. 

The automotive segment to dominate the market by 2032 

In terms of application, the automotive segment garnered the major share of around two-thirds of the global biomethane market in 2022 and is estimated to showcase the highest growth with 5.9% CAGR throughout the forecast timeframe. Biomethane is generated from organic waste materials, hence it is considered as a low-carbon fuel. Additionally, biomethane eliminates emissions of air pollutants like NOx (Nitrogen Oxides), particulate matter, and SOx (Sulfur Oxides) as compared to diesel fuels and gasoline. Utilizing biomethane as a transparent fuel aid enhances air quality and reduces the carbon footprint of vehicle emissions. 

Asia-Pacific to grab the lion’s share by 2032 

On the basis of regional analysis, the APAC region generated the highest revenue of around two-fifths of the global biomethane market and is anticipated to continue its supremacy with highest CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. Biomethane plays a substantial role in the energy landscape of the Asia-Pacific region. China has been actively supporting to produce biomethane as a key element of its initiatives to boost the utilization of renewable energy sources. Meanwhile, India has been making investments in the production of biomethane from a variety of organic waste sources, encompassing agricultural residues, animal manure, and food waste.
