Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100877 | Status : Ongoing



The unprecedented demand for energy has intensified the high consumption of conventional source of energy which is on the verge of depletion. Traditional fuel sources not only produce harmful carbon emission but they are also limited. In the context of reducing the straining demand for conventional fuel sources, renewable energy sources are gaining popularity. Wood pellets are the typical example of a renewable fuel source. It is made from dried biomass that has been finely powdered and passed the pellet dye at high temperature and pressure.

The raw material used for wood pellets generally includes milling of lumber, the leftover of wood products and furniture, industrial waste and co-products, food waste, agricultural residues, energy crops, etc. Wood pellets have high energy density and emit low carbon as compared to other alternative fossil fuels. They are essential for producing heat and power by using wood leftover which causes a major dumping problem.

On the basis of feedstock, the global wood pellets market can be segmented into forest wood waste, agriculture waste, and others. Forest wood pellets include forest residuals such as timber, logging residue, mill residue, etc. It gives high energy density and low carbon emission as compared to other feedstock which tends to augment in demand for wood pellets.

On the basis of application, the global wood pellets market can be segmented into power generation, residential heating, commercial heating, and CHP. The use of wood pellets in the Pellet boiler improves the energy efficiency and reduce the carbon emission which helps to increase in the demand for wood pellets. In residential wood pellets are used for the space heating purpose is expected to significant growth in the wood pellets market.

The wood pellets are eco-friendly renewable energy source widely used across different industries to produce heat and power with low carbon emission is expected to increase the growth of the wood pellets market. Its cost is economically viable compared to traditional fuel source is driving the wood pellets market

The factor that is expected to inhibit the growth of the wood pellets market is during the manufacturing process it creates wood dust, which has a harmful effect on health such as asthma and lung cancer, allergic reactions, irritation to the skin, and nasal cancer.
