Biochar Market Growth Drivers Analysis 2022-2029

The Global Biochar Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of ~12.3% during the forecasting period (2022-2029). Biochar is a porous stable solid rich in carbon and is produced from the carbonization of biomass. Biochar is mixed with other matter for soil amendment and other purposes. It is found naturally in the soil as a result of natural vegetation or forest fires. The advantages of biochar carbon sequestration include the reduction of carbon greenhouse gases. Most of the feedstock is in waste from various sectors such as agriculture, forestry, and residential, which form the cheap raw material for biochar production. The market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period because of the growing biochar applications in agricultural activities.

Market Dynamics

Advantages of biochar carbon sequestration projects and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are the primary factor driving the global biochar market during the forecast period. Carbon sequestration activity captures and stores carbon to prevent its release into the atmosphere. Biochar can retain carbon in the soil for a long period. It enhances soil fertility and stimulates plant growth. Carbon sequestration plants consume carbon from the soil for their growth. The energy generated during biochar production can be used as a substitute for carbon positive energy from fossil fuels. Biochar also reduces greenhouse gas emissions as it lowers the need for fertilizers, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions from fertilizer production.

However, the lack of demonstration of projects and contamination in biochar and its feedstock is hindering the growth of the Biochar market globally during the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

The global biochar market is segmented on feedstock into forestry waste, agriculture waste, animal manure, etc.

Forestry waste includes straw, nutshells, wood chips, tree bark, wood pellets, switchgrass, noxious weeds, sawdust, hemp, and algae. Forestry waste is a viable source for the generation of biochar because of its high energy conversion efficiency. Factors such as low moisture content, homogeneity of forestry waste, and other physical characteristics make it compatible with the current biochar production technology such as pyrolysis and gasification. The high concentration of centralized forestry waste around industrial wood mills or other forestry product processing plants helps minimize transportation costs. The homogeneity and consistency of forestry waste allow standardization of the manufacturing process and equipment.

Geographical Presentation

By region, the global biochar market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa.

North America is expected to dominate the global biochar market due to growing awareness of biochar's agricultural production benefits, improving soil quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Growing R&D in biochar production technology, increased demand for biochar byproducts such as biofuels and syngas, and rising waste-to-energy programs will also contribute to the market growth in this region.

The APAC's market growth's key reason is its potential role in soil improvement and carbon sequestration, especially for smallholding farmers. Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, China, and Japan are the key countries in the region. The availability of agricultural waste is also influencing the market growth.

Competitive Analysis

The global biochar market is a moderately consolidated market with significant companies occupying more than 1/3rd market share and the rest by large group companies. The market is experiencing huge investment by the companies in developing novel products and further commercializing developed products. In July 2019, Aries Clean Energy launched retail sales of USDA-certified biobased product Aries Green. Biochar is a byproduct of our patented gasification process that provides beneficial impacts to soil.

Some of the global biochar market's key players include Agri-Tech Producers LLC, Biochar Products, Diacarbon Energy Inc., Cool Planet, and many others.
