Biofuel Market in the Americas to 2020 - Renewable Fuel Standards and Biofuel Mandates Will Stimulate Investment Higher Availability of Feedstock to Render Higher Biofuel Production in Americas Biofuel production depends predominantly on the availability of feedstock and oil prices. The production therefore depends a lot on changing feedstock prices and oil prices. A scenario analysis between high availability of feedstock and high food prices reveals that biofuel production in the Americas would be greater in a high feedstock situation, as compared to a high oil price situation. A high feedstock situation refers to the availability of feedstock for biofuel production when the split of feedstock for fuel purposes is greater than that for food purposes in future. High oil price refers to the increase in oil prices with the current rate.

A variety of policy tools have been introduced by government which reduce the risk and uncertainty for prospective investors. Government intervention also ensures commitment in response to farmer’s concerns about energy input prices and output biofuel prices. North and South American countries also rely on subsidies, tax credits and preferential taxes to ensure that producers can be confident of surmounting the high cost of biofuel production. Import restrictions are also used to promote the emerging biofuel industry in American countries. Most American countries have made it an essential requirement to blend biofuel with conventional fuels, which, in turn, provides a guaranteed market for biofuels. Increasing oil prices and the need for energy independence will spur the development of the biofuel market in the Americas, but the role of biofuel in supplies required to meet the increase in demand is likely to remain the same, or even lessen, because of its land intensity. In the US, substituting all current gasoline consumption with ethanol would require more land for corn production than is presently available in the whole agricultural industry. Technology will be central to boosting the role of biofuel. If suitable technological advancement is not available at the proper time, then land area will be a major challenge for the development of the biofuels required to meet the demand of the Americas.
