The relevance of research

Pellets are widely used in both domestic and industrial use. Fuel pellets are valued for their environmental friendliness. The production, storage and transportation of pellets eliminate environmental pollution, and when burned, they practically do not emit carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide, and the ash can be used as fertilizer.
Another advantage of pellets is the ability to automate boiler equipment. A single load of a small bunker will allow 2-3 weeks not to approach the boiler at all.
Using pellets is also very economical. At a lower consumption, they release more heat energy than alternative fuels. The efficiency of pellet boilers is up to 90%.


Purpose of the study

Analysis of the state of the pellet market, assessment of the market volume, analysis of competitors, as well as identification of factors affecting the pellet market.

Research excerpt

Part 1. Overview of the Indian Pellet Market 
1.1. Main characteristics of the market
The object of this study are pellets.
Pellets (fuel granules) are a type of biofuel in the form of cylindrical granules obtained from wood waste, agricultural waste or peat. Pellets can be considered a relatively new type of fuel. The first use of compressed wood waste began in North America in the 70s of the last century, and the first sales of pellets on the consumer market were made in 1983.
