    This report is the second edition of the wood pellet market research in Russia and Europe.

    Market monitoring has been conducted since 2006.

    The purpose of the study is the analysis of the Russian wood pellet market.

    The objects of study are wood fuel pellets (pellets).

    This work is a desk study. As sources of information, data from Rosstat, the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, statistics of railway transportation of the Russian Federation were used; used, data base UNdata and Eurostat; materials of world agencies, industry and regional press, annual and quarterly reports of issuers of securities, as well as Internet sites of producers and consumers of wood pellets and briquettes.

    Chronological framework of the study: 2015-2018; forecast - until 2025

    Geography research: Russian Federation, - a comprehensive detailed analysis of the market; European countries - a general retrospective analysis of the market.


    The report consists of 6 parts, contains 56 pages, including 5 figures, 20 tables.

    The first chapter of the report gives a general description of wood fuel pellets, requirements for quality and transportation, production technology.

    In the second chapter of the report, an assessment of the raw material supply for the production of wood pellets in the world and in Russia is given, the structure of the generation of wood waste is given, the capacity of the Russian and global pellet production market is estimated.

    The third chapter of the report analyzes data on the production of fuel pellets in the period 2013-2018. in the context of the Federal Districts of the Russian Federation.

    The fourth chapter is devoted to a detailed analysis of the export of fuel pellets (pellets) from Russia to the countries of the European Union in 2015-2018. The volume of exports in the direction of deliveries, in the mode of transportation, in seaports, in manufacturing enterprises, in sending companies, in Buyer companies with a description of their specialization. Also in this chapter, a forecast of the supply of fuel pellets for export in 2019-2025 is given.

    The fifth chapter provides information on the largest European energy companies that use biofuel to generate heat and electricity.

    With the sixth chapter formulated the main conclusions of the study.


    Target audience of the study:

    - wood pellet market participants - producers, consumers, traders;

    - potential investors.


    The proposed study claims to be a reference tool for marketing services and management decision-makers working in the biofuels market.
