The Worldwide Sustainable Aviation Fuel Industry is Expected to Reach $12.7 Billion by 2028 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Sustainable aviation fuel Market Research Report by fuel type by Biofuel Manufacturing Technology by Biofuel Blending Capacity, by Platform, by Region – Global Forecast to 2027 – Cumulative Impact of COVID-19” report has been added to’s offering.

The sustainable aviation fuel market is projected to grow from USD 209 million in 2021 to USD 12,716 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 58.8% during the forecast period.

Sustainable aviation fuel is a type of fuel that is designed to be used in aircraft while also increasing aircraft efficiency. Sustainable aviation fuels are derived from renewable feedstock’s and have a chemistry that is very similar to traditional fossil jet fuel. Increased use of sustainable aviation fuels reduces carbon emissions compared to traditional jet fuel because it replaces the fuel’s lifecycle. The aviation industry is working to reduce carbon footprints in order to achieve a sustainable environment and meet stringent regulatory emission standards.

Market Drivers

There is a growing need in the aviation industry to reduce GHG emissions.

Sustainable aviation fuels are critical to meeting the aviation industry’s commitments to decouple carbon emissions increases from traffic growth. SAF reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80% over the lifecycle of the fuel when compared to fossil jet fuel, depending on the sustainable feedstock used, production method, and supply chain to the airport. According to the IATA fact sheet, SAF will be an eligible option for aircraft operators to meet their obligations under the International Aviation Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme (CORSIA).

Market Restraint

Oil crops, sugar crops, algae, waste oil, and other biological and non-biological resources are raw materials that play an important role in the entire production chain of alternative aviation fuels such as synthetic fuels, e-fuels, and biojet fuels. The insufficient supply of raw materials required for the production of sustainable aviation fuel may bring the market to a halt. Furthermore, the limitations of refineries, which play an important role in the proper utilisation of these feedstocks, add to the overall process of SAF production. The low availability of fuel also creates a barrier for the fuel’s blending capacity, resulting in less efficiency.
