Westford, USA,, April 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The forecast period (2023-2030) predicts that the B5 Fuel market will reach $77.95 billion, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.68% according to Skyquest latest research report Government policies and regulations, consumer demand, feedstock availability, and the price of crude oil fuel the market’s growth. SkyQuest’s recent global research shows that crude oil prices have a significant impact on the competitiveness of biofuels in the transportation fuel market. The report states that biofuels like B5 struggle to compete with petroleum-based fuels when crude oil prices are low. In contrast, when crude oil prices are high, biofuels become more competitive, increasing demand.

According to SkyQuest, 80% of consumers are willing to pay more for sustainably produced biodiesel, with over half of them willing to pay up to 10 cents more per gallon for this fuel. In January 2020, diesel fuel cost $3.07 per gallon, and biodiesel was priced at $3.48 per gallon in the United States. However, in April 2020, diesel fuel fell to $2.44 per gallon, while biodiesel remained at $3.48 per gallon, making biodiesel less competitive compared to diesel fuel due to a wider price gap between the two fuels.
