Biochar Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report, By Technology (Pyrolysis, and Gasification), By Application (Energy Production, Agriculture & Livestock, Soil & Water Treatment, and Others), and Forecast, 2019-2025.
Biochar is a charcoal-like substance that is gaining significant importance due to remarkable effects on compost and soil. It shows the considerable application in improving soil quality and mitigating climate change, as well as decreasing waste and production of energy as a byproduct. Biochar is black, fine-grained, lightweight, and highly porous, and contains a large surface area. Nearly 70% of its composition is carbon and the rest percentage consists of oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and among other elements. However, its chemical composition varies on the basis of feedstocks for its production and techniques used for heating. Moreover, there are some major factors encouraging the growth of the market which includes the trend towards the management of soil-borne diseases and increasing demand for biomass-derived energy sources.
In addition, emerging adoption of sustainable organic farming is further boosting the demand for biochar. According to Eurostat, the total organic area in the EU-28 was 11.9 million hectares in 2016m which is expected to increase in the upcoming period. During the period 2012-2016, the increase in organic area was 18.7%. This represents remarkable growth in organic farming in European countries. Likewise, the rising adoption of organic farming has also reported in other countries, such as the US, China, India, Japan, and Brazil. There are remarkable benefits of biochar in organic farming as it offers a more sustainable organic approach towards augmenting agricultural soil quality and crop yield. This is achieved due to its stability and duration in soils for several years. Additionally, nitrogen losses are the biggest problem in organic farming, as nitrogen is an important element required for the growth of plants. Biochar can support to overcome this problem as it has the potential to boost the natural ability of legumes for biological nitrogen fixation to the soil. This, in, turn, is accelerating the demand for biochar in organic farming. However, lack of awareness about the benefits of biochar is restricting the growth of the market.
Furthermore, the global biochar market is segmented into technology, application, and feedstock. On the basis of technology, the market is further classified into pyrolysis and gasification. Based on application, the market is further classified into energy production, agriculture and livestock, soil and water treatment and others. Biochar as a soil amendment is a valuable tool for the agricultural industry due to its ability to promote building soil, carbon sequestration, produce renewable energy and conserve water. As biochar is a form of charcoal that has an incredible capacity to absorb nutrients and water. It can be very useful for livestock and soils. In addition, livestock farming offers new opportunities for uses of biochar. According to the researches, biochar to cattle feed with appropriate quantity could increase the rate of weight gain, reduces methane and improves feed efficiency. As a result, the demand for biochar has been significantly increased in agriculture and livestock farming. Based on feedstock, the market is further classified into agricultural wastes, rice husks, bagasse, paper products, animal manures, and others.
Geographically, the market is segmented into four major regions, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the world. The crucial factors driving the demand for biochar in North America comprise significant awareness for biomass-derived sources and increasing demand for food security in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to show potential growth due to the trend towards sustainable organic farming and livestock farming in the region.
The companies that are engaged in the production of biochar include Biochar Supreme, LLC, BioFire SIA., BlackCarbon A/S, Coleman Moore Company, CHAR Technologies, ETIA S.A.S., Meiwa Co., Ltd., New England Biochar, LLC, and Pacific Biochar Benefit Corp. These companies adopted various strategies to be competitive in the market. This includes product launches, merger and acquisitions, geographical expansion, and partnership and collaborations. For instance, in January 2018, CHAR Technologies acquired the Altech Group, which consist of Altech Technologies Systems Inc. and Altech Environmental Consulting Ltd that offers solutions to environmental engineering challenges. The new joint enterprise is planning to commercialize CleanFyre, a new cleantech solid fuel. It is a neutral coal replacement that is commonly known as biocoal. Additionally, this will provide the ability to large industrial customers to significantly decrease their GHG emissions without considerable capital spending. According to CHAR Technologies., CleanFyre will accelerate both experience and expertise of Altech Group and the platform pyrolysis technology of CHAR Technologies. The same pyrolysis technology is used to produce SulfaCHAR, which is used as sulfur-enriched biochar for use in agriculture. This will allow developing a solution with a strong market pull and considerable growth opportunity.
