A GCiS Limited Publication Study Published In January, 2010

China's market for biofuels is the world's third largest after Brazil and the USA. It is a large market, and due to mandatory ethanol substitution in certain areas, growing at a rate comparable to China's mercurial automotive sector. However, high levels of government control and influence are pervasive in both markets, ethanol in particular. Without government subsidies, many participants feel that profits would not be a feature of this market. Nevertheless, opportunities exist for those with the right insights into the market and the trends it will exhibit, going forwards.

This GCiS market study draws on a three month, in-depth primary survey of around 100 of the market's supply side and channel players. A detailed understanding of ethanol (with details of its grain, starch and fiber feedstocks) and biodiesel (with its vegetable oil and waste oil feedstocks) provided by six industry segments across China. Five-year projections provided in the study will be indispensible to anyone looking to map out the course of this quickly developing market. This report is essential reading for any professional needing accurate and detailed strategic information of this market.
