Heating Application Segment to Dominate Global Wood Pellets Market

The global market for wood pellets is divided on the basis of application and geography. By application, power plants and heating are the two segments of the market. Of the two, it is the heating application segment that dominated the wood pellets market in 2014, accounting for 70% of the market. In the coming years as well, the heating application segment will dominate the overall market for wood pellets.

In 2014, power plants consumed almost 800,000 tons of wood pellets across the world. For heating purposes, the industrial and district heating wood pellet grade varies from the one used for residential heating. The combustion technology and logistic facilities largely determine if the wood pellet is suitable for district and industrial heating, the pellets for which are traded globally. On the other hand, wood pellets to be used for residential heating are usually traded regionally.

Governmental Support Encourages Utilization of Wood Pellets in Europe

The regional segments of the global market for wood pellets are North America, Asia Pacific, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. In North America and Europe, the production of wood pellets has been on the rise in the past few years.

In 2014, Europe, led by the U.K., dominated the global wood pellets market. In the U.K., governmental subsidies and institutional support for the use of green energy generation are proliferating the use of wood pellets for heating and power generation needs. Thus, the wood pellets market is benefitted by fitting the mandates of the EU Climate Action Plan for renewable energy sources.

The easy availability and high energy density of wood pellets are some of the advantages that encourage international trade of the commodity. For these reasons, the U.S. and Canada stood as major exporters of wood pellets in 2014. In the coming years, Russia and some countries in South America and Asia Pacific are slated to be among the leading exporters of wood pellets.
