Global Biopower capacity more than doubled during 2006-2018. A significant portion of this growth comprised the capacity addition in Brazil, China, and India. The cumulative capacity grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% from 2006 to 2018. During 2018-2030 as well, the capacity is estimated to grow significantly although at a slower rate. Most of the capacity addition during this period is estimated to come from China and India.

Biopower capacity in China increased significantly from 2006 to 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.3%. The cumulative capacity increased especially during 2009-2012 and 2016-2018. In 2017, the country had the largest annual capacity addition of 2.7 GW. During 2019-2030, China is set to have the largest capacity additions each year with more than 2 GW planned to be added annually. About a third of the global capacity addition during this period is set to be from installations in China.

The Fukushima disaster in Japan has created a shift from nuclear power to other renewable sources including biopower. Against this backdrop the biopower capacity additions in Japan gained traction in 2015. It is estimated that around 300-400 megawatts (MW) biopower capacity will be added in Japan each year during 2019-2030. During this same period, Republic of Korea also plans to increase its biopower capacity significantly. As both these countries import biomass from nearby countries there will be competition for acquiring feedstock and that may lead to a supply shortage or price rise.
