Market Insights on Wood Pellets covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Wood Pellets Market By Feedstock (Forest and Wood Waste Resources, Agricultural Residue and Waste, Food Waste, Virgin Lumber, Energy Crops), End-use Industry (Residential/Commercial Heating, CHP/District Heating, Co-firing) & Region - Forecast 2021 - 2031

Wood Pellets Market Overview

[300 Pages Report] Wood pellets market is set for astounding growth at approximately 11% CAGR through the forecast period 2021-2031. The market for wood pellets witnessed a massive slowdown in its progress as a result of the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe.

The level of demand declined to the extreme level due to lockdown creating hurdles for the key players operating in this Wood Pellets Market. However as recovery commences in 2021, major players are recuperating their positions through production expansion, capacity utilization, and online selling in 2021 keeping in view the covid-19 norms.

Recognized companies such as Enviva Partners LP, Pinnacle Renewable Energy Inc., Wood Pellet Energy (UK) LTD, Andritz AG, Energex, and Georgia Biomass, LLC and others are focusing on the incorporation of tactics including partnership agreements, sales contracts, strategic alliances, diversifications, innovative launches, mergers & acquisitions, research and developments, technological upliftments, product line extensions, hiring technical expertise, joint ventures, collaborations,  product approvals, etc for gaining a competitive edge over others in the market.

For instance, in August 2020, Enviva Partners, LP, a leading global energy company specializing in sustainable wood bioenergy, announced the acquisition of a world-class wood pellet production plant in Waycross, Georgia. Enviva now has nine wood pellet production plants and five deep-water export terminals across Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida.

The Waycross plant has a production capacity of approximately 800,000 metric tons per year. After this acquisition, Enviva’s total annual wood pellet production capacity will touch approximately 4.9 million metric tons and the Waycross plant is now called, “Enviva Pellets Waycross.”

In terms of growth, the European region is projected to the dominant Wood Pellets Market during the forecast period owing to the widespread adoption in power boilers and residential heating segments. Asia Pacific region is expected to be lucrative owing to the rapid construction of power plants and the emergence of the renewable energy sector. Other regions are expected to witness decent growth levels in the wood pellets market during the forecast period.
