Report Description


 

Europe Peat Market: Overview

Peat, also often called as turf, refers to a heterogeneous mix made from products such as reeds and mosses, grasses, and incompletely decomposed plant remains. The material is formed when the exclusion of oxygen and waterlogging change the natural process of decay of organic matter. The extremely slow process, with the layer of peat rising at an average rate of not more than 1 mm per year, leads to the development of a highly rich organic matter that can act as an effective carbon sink and can be used as a fuel for a number of applications.

The overall demand for peat is expected to expand at a sluggish pace in the next few years owing to the rising concerns regarding environmental damage, increased use of renewable energy sources, ambitious clean energy goals, and strict regulations pertaining to carbon emission. The increased usage of alternative substitutes such as land fill biomass, coir, wood fiber, and green compost in a number of applications is also expected to work against the market for peat in Europe in the next few years.

Europe Peat Market: Market Potential

Despite the several challenges ahead of the Europe peat market, the region is expected to remain dominant in terms of production and consumption of the organic matter on a global front in the next few years as well.
