Visiongain has estimated that the global charcoal market will be close to USD xx million in 2020. Charcoal may be a very good fuel for the home. Almost any organic material, including wood, paw, cocoon shells, rice husks and bones, can be used to make charcoal. The hardwood species usually are preferred in wood for the production of charcoal. Cockroach shells in Sri Lanka are used to a large extent. The charcoal of the other biomass fuels is cleaner, easier, smokier, stinkier. It can be used in smaller amounts with cheap domestic burning devices. The industrial application of charcoal is limited in Asia except in certain countries. However, many traditional rural industries and trading institutions use it as a source of energy.

Charcoal Market – Our new market research study shows trends, developments, progress in R&D and forecast revenue till 2031.

What are the key factors to reshaping the growth of the Charcoal market? To find out, you must read this newly updated report if you are one of the stake holder of this market. This exclusive report by Visiongain shows you potential revenue opportunity pool until 2031 for the assessment of data, trends, opportunities and business outlooks.

High Energy Contents in the Charcoal
The temperature of the charcoal depends primarily on its quality, depending on the water content, the volatility and the ash content. It is estimated that its gross heating value is within 28-30 MJ / kg. Refrigerated charcoal has a water content of zero, but during stock it can quickly gain moisture from the air. The commonly used charcoal can have a net calorific value of 28 MJ / kg for domestic use. Its net energy value is, therefore, approximately twice that of air dry fuelwood. This large difference makes the transport of charcoal cheaper than fuelwood over a long distance.

Charcoal production and use may not always be economical
Average 5:1 conversion ratio means that five kilogrammes of air-dried fuelwood are consumed to make one kilo. There is a net energy loss of about 47 MJ (or approximately 62 per cent) of five kilogrammes of air-dried wood, equals 75 MJ (with an energy level of 15MJ / kg). When this produces 1 kilogramme or 28 MJ as a charcoal. Part of the loss of energy during the process of charcoal production is compensated during end-use because charcoal stoves have greater efficiencies than fuelwood stoves (30 percent average efficiency for charcoal stoves, with 10-15 percent of uncontrolled open fire or tripod).

Factors to consider for promoting charcoal use
In some areas, coal is not yet used as a fuel, and people’s purchasing power may be too low to permit the purchase of traded fuel. Often people seek free sources of supply to meet their domestic fuel requirements. In such areas the prospect is non-existent and should not be promoted for the production and trade of charcoal. In other areas there is a long tradition of household charcoal use and local industrial and commercial activities require household charcoal. People there are aware that charcoal is important and it can be promoted commercially. These areas deserve special considerations for the promotion of commercial coal production and trading by additional investments and the application of advanced technologies because of the high demand for quality charcoal (and perhaps even the increase in income of local populations and the expansion of traditional industrial commercial activity).

The need for technological innovation in charcoal production is paramount and needs to be promoted
The need for technological innovation in charcoal production is paramount and needs to be promoted, where demand for better quality charcoal (with greater carbon content) is high for industrial applications. Many urban centres and cities also require household charcoal or for industrial and trade applications ( e.g. cooking and feeding). The traditional production technology for charcoal is needed in those areas not only to improve production recovery, but also to improve quality. The immediate priority in South Asian countries where the use of charcoal is limited should be to ensure its sustainable supply, in order to meet the current level of demand at least. This can be achieved through the efficient production and use of technological innovations and the management of depleted natural forests for the supply of fuelwood as well as other purposes.

Is Uncertain Supply Chain Hampering the Growth of Charcoal?
The demand and supply situation of charcoal in Asian countries in the coming years are quite difficult to forecast. The international price of oil was once thought to shoot up high because of short supplies (reserves that were depleted), but this did not happen. The supply of newly exploring reserves in various parts of the globe has declined instead. As a result, alternative energy sources, including biomass, have affected market prices. In the coming years, charcoal is unlikely to play a dominant role on the energy market as energy consumption change is taking into account in this area.

The current trend in urban centre energy transformation supports conventional fuels.
These are mainly LPG and natural gas in the household sector. In the industrial sector, other energy sources continue to have a dominant role and biomass use is still limited to several countries for modern energy applications. Increased supply of conventional fuels for replacement purposes, at fairly reasonable prices in particular in cities; growth in middle class annual income in most developing countries; the acceleration of the urbanisation rate linked to industrialization and job creation; the changing food habits of the urban cente population.

Will Charcoal Disappear in Coming Years?
Regardless of how hard it may be to visualise a future scenario of charcoal supply and demand in the area, past experience suggests that the use of biomass combustibles will not decrease and in most countries will grow. It will not be used in the short , medium or long term either gradually. The accelerated growth of conventional energy use as a result of rapid industrialisation did not result in declining biomass consumption (e.g., Indonesia , the Philippines, Thailand), not even in countries with a rapidly developing economy. In these countries, charcoal has a particular place (e.g. for chemical and industrial applications and favourite cooking) among the commonly used biomass fuel, and this use will not be progressively abolished. Some developed countries in Asia purchase briquettes of charcoal and charcoal from other countries of the region for specific purposes. Considering these specific requirements, it can safely be concluded that there is a continued need for improvement in efficiency of production, unhindered, open and competitive trade, and optimum utilization through technological innovations in the coming years. Wherever these conditions are not in place they should be promoted.

Which are the Factors affecting production potential of Charcoal Globally?
Factors that could affect commercial charcoal production and trade include: scarcity of wood for charcoal making; ambiguity, inadequacy or flaws in government regulations (e.g. existing regulations often look restrictive rather than supportive in the name of forest conservation); lack of understanding of local wood fuel systems, which often tend to adapt themselves to changing situations; informal nature of operations and the market; variations in the systems to match specific site conditions (simple or complex and sophisticated). Individual actors play specific roles only and will not be in a position to influence the system independently.

Charcoal Supply sustainability and quality is a big Challenge
It is a difficult task to maintain the market’s supply and quality of charcoal. It is not regulated by urban traders or consumers, as many of the coal mines that operate in public forests are unregistered and frequently illegal. The entire operation may be carried out within governmentally managed forests that are unlawful under most existing forest legislation. This is often seen in the forestry agencies as a challenge.

Charcoal Manufacturers should develop integration with forest Department
new forest development strategies in the region aim to foster the participation of people in the forestry development. Forest development integration The programmes under the social / community forest development banner have partially succeeded in increasing household awareness of energy conservation. The programmes, not only by planting and conserving trees but also by encouraging efficient use of the energy, have tried to address the issue of fuelwood supply. In particular, improved cookers were developed and disseminated in order to preserve energy and to a certain extent also to reduce cooking smoke. Other sectors still appear unknown and it has to change that. Most of these charcoal manufacturers today still follow the longstanding practises of the open box manufacture of charcoal.

The economic cost of charcoal production may vary significantly depending on the type of production systems.
In a traditional system the producer collects the wood free of cost, and uses his labor to dig the pit to convert the wood into charcoal, and transports the final products to the market for sale. There is no cash investment in this type of operation. The production cost is virtually zero in such cases (except for tools that are purchased for common household use which are also used for wood cutting and pit digging), unless one has to pay a nominal fee to the forestry department as a government royalty for wood and to obtain a permit for making charcoal in the forest. Then this cost is the only cash investment in charcoal making, which rarely is the case. The producer of charcoal under such a system simply works to convert free time into a marketable product, in the absence of other cash earning opportunities.
