Report Scope:
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has currently halted progress and is impacting economies across the world.Governments worldwide are taking measures to lock down their respective countries, especially affected cities, to contain the spread of the virus.

Governments are also taking necessary measures to contain the economic slowdown.

The report considers the impact of COVID-19.In 2020, the growth rate of every industry is being impacted worldwide, which indirectly affects the biogas upgrading market.

The market is expected to bounce back in 2021, due to relief packages and disaster aid packages by governments to boost economies.

The scope of this report is the global market for biogas upgrading equipment. Market value and growth is evaluated for six different types of upgrading systems: water scrubbing, pressure swing adsorption, physical absorption, chemical absorption, membrane separation, and cryogenic technology.

The market is broken down by four different feed sources: municipal and domestic sewage, industrial wastewater, landfill gas, and agricultural wastes, a category that includes animal manures and crop residues. Additionally, the market is examined according to end use, injection into the gas grid and transportation fuel.

A discussion of the global market by region includes overviews of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World, with individual profiles for countries most active in each region.Present market status, biogas upgrading plant installations, and policies and incentives that support the industry are given for each country.

All market valuations and projections cover the years from 2019 to 2025.

Market figures are based on the revenues derived from equipment sales and are projected in 2019 constant dollars (i.e., inflation is not computed into the projection figures). The revenue figures are derived from estimated revenues of the key players in a particular year.

A technology overview, a discussion on the structure of the industry and brief profiles for major participating companies are included. The machinery used to transform the gas to electricity (reciprocating and other types of gas engines, turbine and microturbines, and fuel cells) is not included in the analysis.

Report Includes:
- 93 tables
- In-depth analysis of the global markets for biogas upgrading equipment and related sustainable energy technologies
- Analyses of the global market trends, with data corresponding to market size for 2019, estimates for 2020, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2025
- Assessment of market potential for biogas upgrading equipment technologies with respect to plant installations, equipment sales, estimated revenue forecast in dollar value terms, and corelated growth rates
- Impact analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic on global economies as well as biogas production and biogas upgrading market
- Estimation of market size and market share analysis of biogas upgrading equipment suppliers based on their application, feed sources and major geographical region
- Highlights of the innovation-driven of biogas upgrading market and market potential for various biogas upgrading technologies, such as water scrubbing, pressure swing adsorption, physical absorption, chemical absorption, membrane separation, cryogenic etc. and their cumulative comparison in units
- Discussion on the biogas industry structure, present market status, industry value chain analysis, upgrading plants and installed capacity, and policies and incentives supporting the industry
- Company profiles of major market participants including, Acrion Technologies, Greenlane Biogas, Hamworthy, Mainsite Technologies, Purac Puregas, Strabag, and Xebec

Biogas is generated through a microbial fermentation process known as anaerobic digestion (AD), by which various waste streams can be cost-effectively converted into electricity and thermal energy.At the heart of the technology is the anaerobic digester, which in combination with a turbine or gas engine, can serve as a complete power plant.

Solid waste landfills also generate a recoverable biological gas through natural AD. Large quantities of gaseous fuel methane can be produced by the process; a valuable by-product in the form of fertilizer also is generated.

While considerable buzz and media attention has focused on a future “hydrogen economy” to replace the one based on fossil energy, a genuine biogas economy has been quietly emerging in Europe and Asia. Increasingly, the process is making inroads into the U.S. and other countries as a sustainable energy alternative.

Legislation and the desire to cut greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are the most important drivers for biogas plant construction.Kyoto Protocol requirements and specifications of the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED) are two examples of this type of legislation.

Energy security, the desire to draw on domestic fuel resources, and elimination of the expense and price volatility of imported fossil fuel also encourage interest in biogas. Worldwide, most countries have targets for renewable energy production, GHG mitigation or laws related to minimizing harmful landfill emissions.

Large-scale AD waste treatment can help reduce GHGs in a number of ways: by directly replacing fossil fuels, minimizing energy use at waste treatment plants, lowering methane emissions from landfill sites, lessening transportation costs related to waste hauling, reducing electrical grid losses and replacing chemical fertilizers with organic products. Unlike liquid biofuels, biogas, for the most part, eliminates the food vs. fuel debate by using waste materials instead of energy crops.

With varying levels of clean-up, also called upgrading, biogas can be used in the same end uses as natural gas: heat and power production, insertion into the pipeline and as vehicle fuel.The uptake of natural gas or biogas-powered vehicles operating is starting to be an easier goal than the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

With improved technologies and market support, biogas might also find application in ships or planes. Growing interest in biomethane could reduce costs significantly, with positive effects on both production and use.
