Key Market Drivers

Driving sustainable energy and economic growth through renewable gas

Power Generation segment, by end-use application, to occupy majority of biomethane market share.

The power generation segment is set to dominate the biomethane market, securing the largest market share. This prominence is driven by the growing recognition of biomethane as a clean and sustainable energy source for electricity production. Governments and energy stakeholders are increasingly focused on reducing carbon emissions in the power sector, and biomethane, with its renewable nature and lower environmental impact, provides a compelling solution. Advanced technologies in anaerobic digestion and gas upgrading enable seamless integration into existing natural gas infrastructure, making biomethane a versatile and accessible fuel for power generation. The global commitment to transitioning toward cleaner energy sources further aligns with biomethane’s attributes, solidifying its pivotal role in the growth of the power generation segment in the biomethane market.

Municipal waste segment, by feedstock, to be largest market.

Municipal waste is anticipated to claim the highest market share in the biomethane market. This projection is underpinned by the increasing recognition of municipal waste as a valuable feedstock for biomethane production. Municipal waste, consisting of organic materials from households and commercial establishments, serves as a rich source for anaerobic digestion processes, a key method for biomethane generation. The emphasis on waste-to-energy solutions and the circular economy concept has heightened interest in converting municipal waste into a renewable and clean energy resource. Governments and waste management authorities are implementing policies and initiatives to encourage the utilization of municipal waste for biomethane production, further boosting its market share. As the world strives for sustainable waste management practices and the reduction of carbon footprints, municipal waste emerges as a prominent and viable feedstock, positioning itself to play a leading role in the biomethane market.
