Published: Sep 2017 | Report Code: 58698-09-17

Wood pellet is a compact fuel processed by crushing waste timber such as forestry residues, sawdust, and industrial byproducts. Wood pellets is used for heating and power generation have a great benefits compared to burning fossil fuels. Wood pellet is a renewable energy source, incurs cheap operating costs, and less emission of harmful substances. In production process of wood pellet an element of wood, when pelletize is melted by heat wood helps to bind it together. The demand for wood pellet is increasing as it is easy to manage, due to the shape and stable hydrous rate. Heat treated wood pellet can be stored for long term. The demand for wood pellets is driven by increasing environmental concerns to reduce carbon emission and to increase the energy content.

The heating application was the largest segment of wood pellets market accounted for around 70% in 2016, and it is expected to continue being the largest segment in the forecast period. Western Europe is accounts for 72.6% of the global wood pellet market by 2016, followed by North America, due to government regulations on carbon emission reduction standards in Europe and North America. Government support in countries such as the U.K., China, Sweden, and South Korea is likely to drive the growth of wood pellets market.

Based on the feedstock, the global wood pellets market is segmented as follows:

  • Forest and Wood waste resources
  • Agricultural residue and waste
  • Others (Energy Crops, Food Waste, and Virgin Lumber)

Wood Pellets Market

Corn grass, wheat grass or rice grass are used to prepare agricultural waste pellets. It is commonly used in home and industries owing to its economical, safe, and easy to maneuver features. Some agricultural materials generate ash that form clusters and requires high temperatures to burn. Due to this, most wood pellet stoves are not suitable for burning agricultural waste pellets. Specifically designed “biomass pellet stove” is required for burning agricultural waste pellets to avoid blockage in pellet burning place. Forest feedstock for wood pellets is produced by bamboo, kudzu, cogon grass, and Chinese tallow. Forest feedstock also encompass major amounts of needles, bark, dirt, leaves, and rocks because of which pellets production lacks and becomes low-grade. Another feedstock is energy crops which is generated by short rotation trees. Energy crops could be done on minimal lands. These crops has an easy to plan harvesting cycle, and a clear supply chain.

Based on the end user, the global wood pellets market is segmented as follows:

  • Residential
  • Industrial
  • Power and Heat
  • Others

Wood Pellets Market

Wood pellets are mainly used in residential and biomass industry sectors, which together accounting for more than 75% of total market size. Wood pellets has becoming more popular for household users due to its characteristics such as, sustainability, and environmental friendliness. In household wood pellets are mainly used for cooking and heating and horse bedding. Wood pellets has no energy limitation and has low budget, which makes it suitable for cooking application. The wood pellets made from biomass wood pellet mills are the fuel used in pellets stoves which are popular heating appliance for home in chilly winter, hence it is the preferred option for heating. Wood pellets are widely used in industries. Massive amount of wood pellets are used for power stations, gasifiers, boilers, etc it can be used through direct firing, cogeneration, co-firing, and gasification to generate heat and electricity.

For the purpose of this study, the global wood pellets market is categorized into the following geographies and sub-geographies:

  • North America (U.S, and Canada)
  • Europe (France, Germany, Spain, Italy, U.K., and Rest of Europe)
  • Asia Pacific (China, India, and Rest of Asia Pacific)
  • Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of Latin America)
  • Middle East and Africa (Saudi Arabia, and Rest of Middle East and Africa)

Wood Pellets Market

Western Europe is projected to have a share of 72.6% in the global wood pellet market in 2017, followed by North America with a share of 7.8%. Europe is likely to grow with a higher growth rate in the forecast period as compared to other regions. Asia Pacific is another lucrative market and fastest growing region in the forecast period. The production capacity of wood pellets in Chile is growing rapidly, due to the lower manufacturing cost. Brazil and Argentina are the largest producers of wood pellets, they use sawdust and industrial round wood for production. Increasing production of wood pellets in Asia Pacific is one of the key driver of the global wood pellet market. In Latin America, wood pellets are extensively used to generate electricity, due to the reduction of fossil fuel.
