Biomass Boiler Market Size

Biomass Boiler Market size reached USD 12 billion in 2023 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9% from 2024 to 2032. A biomass boiler is a sustainable heating system that utilizes organic materials including wood pellets, agricultural waste and related material to produce heat. Through the combustion of fuel, heat energy is released, which is utilized to heat water or generate steam. The resulting hot water or steam is then circulated to provide heat and generate power.

Biomass Boiler Market

Increasing global focus on renewable energy and sustainable practices is propelling the demand for biomass boiler market. Governments and regulatory bodies worldwide are implementing supportive policies and incentives to promote renewable energy adoption, creating a favorable business opportunity. Favorable policies including feed-in tariffs, renewable energy targets, tax credits, and grants are impacting the installation of these boilers.
