Europe Biomass Boiler Market Size

Europe Biomass Boiler Market size was valued at USD 9.1 billion in 2022 and is estimated to grow at over 8% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. A biomass boiler is a sustainable heating system that utilizes the energy from natural substances like wood pellets and agricultural waste to generate heat. It operates by burning these renewable fuels, releasing heat energy that is used to either heat water or produce steam. The generated hot water or steam is then circulated to supply warmth and generate electricity.
