Wood Pellets Market size to exceed $20bn by 2027

  • Published Date: November 11, 2021

Wood Pellets Market size is set to surpass USD 20 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc. Policy amendments related to coal-fired plants in countries such as Canada will propel the global market growth.

In December 2018, the Government of Canada announced to discontinue coal-fired electricity by 2030, which is aimed at supporting the country’s cleaner energy target. In the domestic heating sector, the government’s plan for replacing woodstove in provinces including Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia will provide an opportunity for the product in the coming years.

The wood pellets market is at the nascent stage in the emerging countries of the Middle East & Africa owing to the lack of production facilities and availability of substitutes at comparable cost. Major African countries are still dependent upon coal for meeting their energy needs in the residential segment. Furthermore, the lack of integration of emerging countries for sustainability criteria may impose a trade barrier for major manufacturers over the coming years owing to the presence of a variety of sustainability standards across the world, hindering the wood pellets industry demand.
