Source Insights

The municipal source segment accounted revenue share of around 42% in 2021. The main source of biogas is municipal waste. The municipal waste includes newspapers, clothing, furniture, bottles, cans, food, and appliances. The municipal waste is also known as garbage that is collected from each and every individual of every locality. The wide range of waste is used for the production of biogas. The municipal waste is found abundantly, which is driving the growth of the segment.

Biogas Market Share, By Source, 2021 (%)

The industrial segment is fastest growing segment during the forecast period. The factories and industries emit toxic gases and harmful waste in large amount. This waste and garbage are considered as industrial waste. Every year around 7.6 billion tons of industrial waste is produced in the U.S. The industrial waste is available on a large scale, which is supporting the growth of the global biogas market over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The electricity segment dominated the biogas market in 2021 with revenue share of 31%. The biogas helps in the production of electricity. The government of developed and developing countries is striving harder for electricity generation in rural areas. The surge in demand for power generation is resulting into the growth of the market for biogas. The country such as India uses biogas on a large scale for the generation of power and electricity.

Biogas Market Share, By Application, 2021 (%)

The upgraded biogas segment is fastest growing segment of the biogas market in 2021. The biogas is converted into other gas such as biomethane with the removal of carbon dioxide and hydrogen from it. This creates premium or high quality of biogas which can be used in various industries and sectors. Thus, this is creating demand for biogas in the global market.

Region Insights

North America led the biogas market in 2021. The factors such as surge in demand for biogas in diverse sectors and industries, innovation and technological developments, and growing investments in the energy sector is contributing to the market growth.
