概要

世界の藻類バイオ燃料の市場規模は、2022年の96億3,370万米ドルから、予測期間中は6.36%のCAGRで推移し、2033年には188億4,470万米ドルの規模に成長すると予測されています。

世界の藻類バイオ燃料の市場は著しい成長を遂げており、北米がこの技術の導入と発展をリードしています。持続可能性への世界的のシフトが同市場の主要促進要因であり、再生可能エネルギー分野のイノベーションと投資を促進しています。この転換は、気候変動に対処し、化石燃料への依存を減らし、より持続可能なエネルギーソリューションを生み出すという緊急の必要性によって動機づけられています。

主要市場統計
予測期間 2023-2033年
2023年評価 101億7,000万米ドル
2033年予測 約 188億4,000万米ドル
CAGR 6.36%

世界各国の政府は、バイオ燃料を含む再生可能エネルギーを促進するための政策や奨励策を実施しています。欧州連合 (EU) の再生可能エネルギー指令 (RED) は、再生可能エネルギー利用の野心的な目標を定めており、こうした支援の一例です。こうした政策は、金融優遇措置、税制優遇措置、研究助成金を提供することで、藻類バイオ燃料の市場実現性を高めています。例えば、米国エネルギー省のバイオエネルギー技術局は、藻類バイオ燃料の研究に多額の資金を割り当て、従来型燃料とコスト競争力を持たせることを目指しています。

市場需要促進要因:従来のサトウキビやトウモロコシのバイオ燃料に対する藻類ベースのバイオ燃料の優位性

藻類を原料とするバイオ燃料は、サトウキビやトウモロコシを原料とする従来のバイオ燃料と比較して際立った利点があり、これが世界の藻類バイオ燃料市場に変革をもたらしています。藻類は食用作物と耕作地を争うことがないため、従来のバイオ燃料が抱えていた倫理的・物流的な問題に対処することができます。藻類は汽水域や廃水を含む水域で生育できるため、淡水資源への負担が大幅に軽減されます。

また、藻類は、サトウキビやトウモロコシに比べ、1エーカー当たりのバイオ燃料生産量が大幅に多いです。例えば、トウモロコシの年間生産量が250ガロンであるのに対し、藻類は1エーカー当たり2,000~5,000ガロンのバイオ燃料を生産できます。この優れた収量ポテンシャルにより、藻類バイオ燃料は、よりスケーラブルで効率的な代替燃料として位置づけられています。

Recent Developments in the Global Algae Biofuel Market

  • In March 2023, a $25 million Series A equity investment was raised by Viridos, Inc., the industry pioneer in algal biofuels committed to producing low-carbon, sustainable jet and diesel fuel derived from algae. Chevron U.S. Inc. and United Airlines Ventures joined Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) in leading Series A. To raise algal oil productivity to levels that can be used commercially, the funding would be used for research and development.
  • In March 2022, a strategic collaboration between Genifuel Corporation and AECOM was announced to increase the production of carbon-neutral, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and biogas from biosolids and wild algae. A patented technology created by Genifuel Corporation and the U.S. Department of Energy is used by the partnership to turn algae and wastewater biosolids into sustainable oil and gas, while AECOM's process for harvesting wild algae is patent pending.
  • In April 2020, AlgaEnergy S.A. and the University of Cadiz launched a new research and development project. AlgaEnergy S.A.'s purpose is to promote new basic research lines while simultaneously applying and increasing the performance of previously achieved laboratory-scale advancements related to algae biofuel at the industrial level. With a $101,000 budget, it would be executed in conjunction with a University of Cadiz research team under the direction of Dr. Teresa Fernandez Ponce.
  • In March 2018, Cellana Inc. and Neste forged a significant multi-year agreement for the supply of algae oil feedstock, marking a pivotal step in the commercial-scale production of biofuels. This collaboration underscores the growing recognition of algae as a viable alternative to fossil fuels amidst escalating demand for biofuels driven by rising crude oil prices, environmental concerns, and the pursuit of national energy security. The agreement not only highlights the potential of algae to contribute to the biofuel industry but also aligns with the pressing need to meet the U.S.'s substantial transportation fuel requirements, which exceed 150 billion gallons of biofuel annually. This development represents a strategic advancement for both companies in addressing the long-term demand that currently surpasses production capabilities, positioning them as leaders in the sustainable fuel sector.

Demand - Drivers, Challenges, and Opportunities

Market Demand Drivers: Advantages of Algae-Based Biofuels over Traditional Sugarcane and Corn Biofuels

Algae-based biofuels present distinctive advantages over traditional biofuels derived from sugarcane and corn, which are translating into transformative impacts on the global algae biofuel market. Algae cultivation does not compete with food crops for arable land, addressing a critical ethical and logistical concern associated with traditional biofuels. Algae can grow in water bodies, including brackish and wastewater, which substantially reduces the strain on freshwater resources.

Algae yields significantly more biofuel per acre than sugarcane or corn. For instance, algae can yield 2,000 to 5,000 gallons of biofuel per acre annually compared to corn's 250 gallons. This superior yield potential positions algae biofuels as a more scalable and efficient alternative.

Market Challenges: High Production Cost

High production costs remain a pivotal challenge in the commercialization of algae biofuels, influencing the pace and scale of market development. Algae cultivation requires specific conditions, often necessitating costly infrastructure such as photobioreactors. The processes of harvesting algae and extracting biofuels are energy-intensive and require significant investment in specialized equipment.

The operating cost allocation for a photobioreactor (PBR) system is a major part of investment in algae biofuel production. The largest expense is PBR bag replacement, consuming 31.4% of the budget, indicative of the energy-intensive nature of PBR systems. This is followed by CO2 costs at 15.20%, reflecting the need for carbon dioxide in algal photosynthesis. Nutrient expenses (ammonia and diammonium phosphate (DAP)) account for 15.4%, while electricity represents 6.7%.

Market Opportunities: Government Policies Expected to Create Opportunities

Government policies are creating opportunities for the growth and innovations of companies, which might eventually lead to the growth of the global algae biofuel market. These policies can catalyze industry development by providing financial incentives, reducing regulatory barriers, and setting mandates for biofuel use. Through the development of sustainable feedstock and conversion technologies, the chosen projects will support the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grand Challenge and its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. These products will be used to create essential fuels and carbon-based products that are difficult to decarbonize. This implies that the demand for algae biofuels might increase in the upcoming years, and a greater number of opportunities would eventually lead to the growth of the global algae biofuel market.
