The wood pellet use in the heating and electricity sector has recorded a
steady growth in the last years. IEA bioenergy task 40 carried out an
update of the situation on the national pellet markets in the most
relevant pellet producing countries and the global development as well.
Various country specific data is collected and compiled for more than 30
countries, containing updated information about regulatory framework,
production, consumption, price trends, quality standards and trade
aspects. The analysis confirmed the positive development in terms of
production and consumption of wood pellets in almost all countries. In
2015, more than26Mt of wood pellets have been produced and consumed
worldwide. Technologies and markets become more mature. Increased
international pellet trade needs to be supported by adequate frame
condition not only for commerce, but also with regard to sustainability
