Asia-Pacific Leads in Global Volume Consumption Growth

This research service provides a detailed analysis of the automotive biofuels market in North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific region. The scope of the study covers 2 biofuel markets: automotive ethanol and automotive biodiesel. The study provides detailed market insights in terms of trends, revenue, and volume consumption forecasts. Key market drivers and restraints are described alongside competitive factors and profiles of the top market participants for each region. An outlook is also provided for advanced biofuels as well as profiles of key companies operating in each region. The study period is 2010 to 2018; the base year is 2013.

Executive Summary - Key Findings
-The biofuels industry has seen strong growth over the last decade due to concerns regarding environmental safety and a global focus on ensuring reduction in greenhouse emissions. High crude oil prices and implementation of government policies (blend mandates) around the world have also driven the market.
-Automotive ethanol remains the dominant biofuel used in transport applications globally, although the use of biodiesel has increased rapidly in recent years.
-In 2013, million liters (ML) of automotive ethanol was consumed globally, which generated manufacturer revenues of $59,595.4 million. The overall market is mature, with volume consumption growing % and market revenues growing % over 2012.
-Global volume consumption and manufacturer revenues are expected to grow at compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) of % and %, respectively, from 2013 to 2018.
-The United States remains the primary producer and consumer of automotive ethanol, followed by Brazil and China. In order to reduce dependence on food-related feedstock such as corn, sugarcane, and grain, the use of cellulosic ethanol is being promoted globally; the United States has taken the lead in this niche biofuel segment.
-Commercial sales of cellulosic ethanol are expected to begin in the United States in 2014, although it will continue to constitute a very small share of the total volume sales.
-Increasing vehicle fuel efficiency that has reduced gasoline consumption in the United States has created an ethanol blend wall, a phenomenon that is expected to restrain the market from reaching its potential until suitable medium-term solutions are found. A blend wall is an environment in which nearly all fuel ethanol is sold as E10; this market saturation forms a barrier in which additional ethanol supply cannot be accommodated.
-Solutions would include expansion of blender pumps and support infrastructure to promote usage of higher ethanol blends such as E15 and E85. The long-term solution to this issue is promoting the sales of flex-fuel vehicles in developed regions, which would allow the end user to select higher ethanol blends.
-Biodiesel has gained popularity in recent years, and government mandates have resulted in rapid expansion in production capacities globally. The biodiesel industry can be considered to be in its growth stage with million liters consumed globally in 2013, generating manufacturer revenues of $ million; global volume consumption and manufacturer revenues are expected to grow at CAGRs of% and %, respectively, from 2013 to 2018.
-Europe remains the primary consumer and producer of biodiesel, although the market has reached a mature stage. Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for automotive ethanol and biodiesel, with expected volume consumption CAGRs of % and %, respectively.
-North American and Latin American biodiesel markets have reached a mature stage in ethanol consumption; however, the biodiesel industry is expected to remain strong. Volume consumption is expected to grow at a CAGR of % in North America and% in Latin America from 2013 to 2018.
