Format: Online | Last Updated: Jun 2020

Biodiesel demand in India grew at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2015-2020 and is anticipated to achieve a healthy growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing crude oil import bills has made the Indian govt. switch domestic fuel alternatives with Biodiesel, which is serving as the main game changer. With the initiation of National Policy on Biofuels in 2019, the demand for Biodiesel is set to witness an upward trend in the coming years. India’s initiative towards promoting cleaner fuels is all set to elevate the country’s overall Biodiesel demand. As India’s primary energy demand is all set to double in the next two decades, use of cleaner fuel alternatives will continue to spur the sales of Biodiesel as a fuel. Transport sector, railways and industries are the major Biodiesel end users in India and offer vast potential to the biofuel market.
 
Biodiesel is mainly manufactured from the oil-bearing seeds of Jatropha Curcas plants which are cultivated by Indian farmers. However, due to shortage of Jatropha seeds, other multiple feedstock technologies are being used to produce Biodiesel. For example, used cooking oils, animal fats and imported crude vegetable oils (such as Palm Oil) are also being used by several producers for manufacturing Biodiesel. Blended with conventional diesel and used as fuel in railways and other commercial vehicles, Biodiesel has a vast potential to act as substitute for conventional fossil fuels to enhance country’s energy demand.
 
The demand for biofuels is shifting towards emerging economies, which are working towards framing policies that favour the domestic biofuels market. India’s biofuel production accounts for only one percent of the global production and hence this market is still a niche in the country. As the Central Government is providing support to the domestic players to tap the potential for India’s Biodiesel market, many players are investing into this sector. Transportation sector is one of the major consumers of Biodiesel, followed by energy and construction sector where it is used in operations. Strong Indian government support is also attracting international players to enter for biofuel business in India.
