Guiding Through the Dynamics of China's Alternative Fuels Market

March 15, 2015 | State of the Market Report

China's fast-growing energy demand and heavy reliance on foreign oil imports bring huge opportunity to the alternative transportation fuel market. The last decade has seen the start of fast growth and industry diversification. However, due to the energy dominance by state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and the sensitivity associated with government regulation and feedstock dynamics, navigating the market opportunities varies by subcategory. We herein analyzed the challenges and the opportunities along the industry value chain in four categories, namely, fuel ethanol, alternative diesel and jet fuel, natural gas vehicles (NGVs), and others. With the government’s efforts to strengthen regulations and privatizing distribution channels, opportunities are open to foreign developers with partnerships to key Chinese players, both SOEs and private-sector players, in a cleaner China.
