Biomethane Market

Biomethane Market Share Information:

Straits Research, a leading market research company, has recently published a report on the global biomethane market, which predicts significant growth for the industry in the coming years. According to the report, The global biomethane market size was valued at USD 2.08 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 3.76 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period 2022–2030.

Biomethane is a renewable gas produced by the anaerobic digestion of organic matter, such as agricultural waste, food waste, sewage, and landfill gas. It is a clean and sustainable energy source that can be used for heating, electricity generation, and as a transport fuel. Biomethane production also reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps to mitigate climate change.

The increasing demand for clean energy, coupled with government support and incentives for renewable energy, is driving the growth of the biomethane market. The report identifies Europe as the largest market for biomethane, with Germany, the UK, and Sweden leading in production and consumption. However, the market is also gaining traction in North America, Asia-Pacific, and other regions.

The report also highlights some of the key players in the biomethane market, such as PlanET Biogas Global GmbH (Germany), CNG Services Ltd. (U.K.), VERBIO (Germany). These companies are investing in research and development, expanding their production capacities, and collaborating with other stakeholders to increase the adoption of biomethane.

The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the biomethane market, including market size, trends, drivers, challenges, and opportunities. It also includes profiles of key players and their strategies, as well as a SWOT analysis of the industry.


  1. Government support and incentives: Governments around the world are offering incentives for renewable energy sources, including biomethane. This is driving the demand for biomethane as a clean and sustainable energy source.
  2. Increasing demand for clean energy: The growing awareness of the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is leading to a greater demand for clean energy sources like biomethane.
  3. Availability of feedstock: Biomethane can be produced from a variety of organic waste sources, including agricultural waste, food waste, sewage, and landfill gas. The availability of feedstock is driving the growth of the biomethane market.
  4. Environmental benefits: Biomethane production reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps to mitigate climate change. This is an important driver for the adoption of biomethane.


  1. Expansion of biomethane production: The increasing demand for biomethane provides opportunities for the expansion of production capacity.
  2. New market opportunities: The growing interest in clean energy sources provides new market opportunities for biomethane producers.
  3. Collaboration with other stakeholders: Collaboration with other stakeholders, such as governments, waste management companies, and energy companies, can help to increase the adoption of biomethane.
  4. Use in transport: Biomethane can be used as a transport fuel, providing opportunities for the development of biomethane-powered vehicles and infrastructure.


  1. High capital costs: Biomethane production facilities can be expensive to build and operate, which can be a barrier to entry for new players in the market.
  2. Lack of infrastructure: The lack of infrastructure for biomethane distribution can limit the adoption of biomethane.
  3. Competition from other renewable energy sources: Biomethane faces competition from other renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power.
  4. Availability of feedstock: The availability of feedstock can be limited in some regions, which can restrict the growth of the biomethane market.

Overall, the biomethane market is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, driven by the increasing demand for clean and sustainable energy sources. While there are some challenges that need to be addressed, the opportunities for the expansion of biomethane production and use are significant.
