US Demand for Motor Vehicle Biofuels to Increase Less Than 1.0% Annually to 2022

Gains in Biodiesel and Other Fuels Segments Will Support Modest Demand Increases

CLEVELAND, Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- US demand for motor vehicle biofuels is forecast to rise less than 1.0% yearly through 2022, according to Motor Vehicle Biofuels: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Advances will primarily stem from growth in the biodiesel and other fuels segments, spurred by tax credits and higher government-mandated blend targets for advanced fuels in the domestic fuel supply.

More information about the report is available at:

Demand for fuel ethanol, the largest segment, is projected to see marginal annual declines through 2022. Losses will stem from ethanol having reached a blendwall, about 10% of ethanol-mixed gasoline, coupled with declining gasoline consumption.

These and other key insights are featured in Motor Vehicle Biofuels: United States. This report forecasts to 2022 US motor vehicle biofuels demand and production in gallons. Total demand and production are segmented by type in terms of:

  • fuel ethanol
  • biodiesel
  • other biofuels, such as renewable diesel

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, production, and the various segments are provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017.
