Research objective is analysis of the global and Russian market of fuel pellets (pellets), equipment for its production and burning.
Research objects are fuel pellets from different materials: wood, agricultural wastes, peat. Pellets are used mainly in energy industry for generation of electric and heat power, cogeneration at big power stations, at regions boiler-houses, and also pellets boilers and fireplaces in private sector. It is possible to use pellets in a number of auxiliary industries (steam production in the industry, absorbents, etc.)
Pellets are the ecological energy carrier and produced from the wastes of sawmill, wood processing, agricultural, and food productions. This type of fuel have become a widespread in the European countries thanks to different forms of support of producers and consumers. Among these measures there are quotas of output by Central Heating and Power Plants (CHPP) on the solid fuel of the "green" electricity (electricity based on the biomass), taxes for using the fossil fuels, subsidies for setting of pellets boilers. As a result, in Europe in 2004-2009 consumption of pellets rose in 4.5 times and continues to increase. CAGR 2009-2013 was 14.4%, market size rose in 1.7 times. It is important to notice, that the market continued to grow even in the crisis period, though the rate slowed down. The similar trends are observed in the North America, where Canada and especially USA stop to be the net exporters of pellets and develope their own inner markets.
Though demand on pellets in Russia stays at the low level (about 12% from the production volume in 2013), nowadays the Russian production of fuel pellets represents an independent industry, numbering more than 200 factories. In spite of a fluctuating financial-economic situation in Europe, forecasts of the growth of pellets consumption in Europe cause the high investment interest to organisation of productions on the territory of Russia. The feature of modern stage of development becomes the construction of big factories with the annual output from 50 thousand to 1 million tons pellets, as well as chains of factories in Kostroma, Nizhny Novgorod, Vologda regions.
Research geography: Russia (detailed), Europe (include CIS, Baltics), North America, Asia Pacific.
Research chronology: Russia - 2009-2013, forecast till 2018; rest of the world - 2007-2013 (available data), forecast - 2015, 2020.
