What does global biofuels production look like worldwide? While global biofuels production did increase in all major producing regions, it was at slower rates than in the previous decade. The United States is still the largest producer of biofuel in the world, accounting for 38% of global biofuels production in 2019. Supplies of global biofuels translated into lower prices for ethanol and biodiesel, and margins correspondingly decreased due to increases in feedstock prices. Demand is strong as policies, subsidies, taxes, and mandates continue to play a strong role in biofuels pricing. Additionally, we continue to see that biofuels are not only beneficial in their environmental impacts, but also in the consumption of waste materials that might otherwise be discarded. Given the energy security and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions provided by biofuels, the world biofuels market has seen good growth and should continue to provide excellent opportunities.
