The global second- and third-generation biofuels market accounted for $3,574 million in 2015, and is expected to reach at $57,124 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 48.9% from 2016 to 2022. Biofuels are fuels produced by a biochemical reaction using biological sources such as raw materials. Based on production, biofuels can be categorized into first-, second-, and third-generation biofuels. First-generation biofuels, also known as conventional biofuels, are prepared using food crops, such as soy, rapeseed, corn, and similar others. Second-generation or advanced biofuels are produced from non-food crops and waste, such as forest residues, non-edible oils, crops, such as Miscanthus, and others. Third-generation biofuels are derived from algae, which has proven to be the most efficient source for biofuel production. The market is expected to register a double-digit growth rate during the forecast period, attributed to the increased demand from the transportation and the power generation industry.

The global second- and third-generation biofuels market has driven by the factors, such as sustainable and clean source of fuel, easy availability of raw materials that are non-food crops & wastes, lesser concentration of greenhouse gases as compared to conventional fuels, and governmental incentives that supports the development of advanced biofuel production technologies. Provides opportunities for new entrants due to lesser number of fully commercialized manufacturers of different types of advanced biofuels.

The second- & third-generation biofuels market is segmented based on biofuel type, feedstock, generation, and geography. The generation segment includes second- and third generation. According to feedstock, it is divided into simple lignocellulose, syngas & biomass, complex lignocellulose, algae, and others. On the basis of biofuel type, it is classified into bioethanol, biodiesel, biobutanol, bio-DME (dimethyl ether), and others. Based on application, it is categorized into transportation, power generation, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA, with country-level analysis of each region.
