On an average, the aviation sector consumes 10% of the total energy required in the transportation segment per annum. Aviation transport produces significant amount of carbon emissions per annum; up to 781 million tons of CO2 was pumped into the atmosphere in 2015. Thus, replacements for aviation fuels by ecofriendly and alternative fuels are largely promoted across the globe. Aviation alternative fuels are fuels are environmentally friendly and sustainable, however, these fuels are better than petroleum based fuels with regard to the impression on air quality post combustion only. Advanced biofuels are strong contenders for replacing petroleum based aviation fuels in the near future, as these fuels are equally safe and offer better performance.

Rise in concerns about environmental protection, global warming, and climate changes is driving the aviation alternative fuels market. Various companies, organizations, and governments are investing in research, development, and commercialization of alternative fuels for aviation. Evolution of technologies has substantially reduced the cost of manufacturing these fuels, resulting in economical alternatives for fossil fuels. Moreover, rapid growth in the aviation industry, which is expanding at a CAGR of 5% per annum, is likely to propel the demand for aviation alternative fuels during the forecast period.

Increase in trade, which results in rise in logistics, is also expected to boost the aviation alternative fuels market. However, several challenges and concerns are hampering the market growth. Storage of biodiesel for long time can be challenging; if stored for longer period of time at lower temperature, these fuels tend to oxidize resulting in jellification. These fuels have the potential to curb the rising pollution and carbon emissions; however, biofuels directly compete with agriculture and food production for resources, resulting in straining the natural resources. Furthermore, the high quality standards for fuels and their safe transportation during flights is also expected to impact the demand for these fuels.
