The global energy demand has been on the rise in recent years. The rising energy demand has seen the carbon emissions to rise with more utilization of conventional fuels and, therefore also the need for substitute fuels for energy production. The biodiesel fuel is manufactured using the domestic and animal waste acts as a replacement for the conventional fuels in various sectors of its application. The multiple advantages of using biodiesel are its biodegradability, reduced dependency on conventional fuels and, reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

The government policies and tax rebates to support the adoption of biodiesel will also fuel the growth of the biodiesel market in the given forecast period. The technological advancements taking place to improve the performance characteristics will add one more positive attribute towards the characteristics of the biodiesel. With most of the market currently concentrated in particular regions the market is set to flourish in the other regions in the coming years and thus inviting more investments and propelling its growth.
