Global Wood Chips Market Highlights Over 2019 - 2028
The global wood chips market is estimated to garner a revenue of USD 15500 Million by the end of 2028, by growing at a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period, i.e., 2021 – 2028. Moreover, in the year 2019, the market registered a revenue of USD 12000 Million. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing demand for energy worldwide, and therefore the need for different energy sources, such as wood chips. According to the statistics by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the total final consumption (TFC) of energy across industries, transport, and residential sectors increased from 100763501.0 TJ, 97400377.0 TJ, and 79732329.0 TJ respectively in the year 2009 to 120978863.0 TJ, 120972204.0 TJ, and 87779996.0 TJ respectively. Wood chips are widely used as a fuel source for wood fire cooking as well as for generating electricity. These chips are also used in industries for the production of energy as these chips possess the characteristics of being a uniform fuel and also can be fed directly to the boiler.
Besides this, the growing demand for wood pulp in the paper industry is also expected to contribute to market growth. The wood chips are mostly derived from residual wood and hence, it helps in preventing the need to cut new trees for different end-use purposes. Additionally, burnt wood chips, which transform into biochar, are widely used as fertilizers in the agricultural industry. Moreover, in recent years, wood pellets have been known to be one of the fastest-growing bioenergy sectors around the globe. According to the statistics by the World Bioenergy Association (WBA), the production of wood pellets around the globe increased from 18.1 Million tonnes in the year 2012 to 38.9 Million tonnes in the year 2019.
