BBI International Announces Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit

Event Will Be Co-Located With the International Biomass Conference & Expo

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Dec 3, 2015) -  BBI International has announced the Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit as a pre-conference seminar for the 2016 International Biomass Conference & Expo. The event will take place Monday, April 11, 2016 at the Charlotte Convention Center, Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit will offer attendees a one-day, intensive exploration of the biomass industry's most dynamic market segment. Fueled by global policies aimed at reducing the carbon intensity of energy products, the market for wood pellets has grown steadily since the early 2000s. While industry forecasts about the rate of growth may vary, the consensus is that global demand will continue to rise for the next decade.

The Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit will bring together the world's most informed market observers to bring attendees up to speed on existing, expanding and emerging markets for pellets and the policy and marketplace dynamics shaping them.

Industry experts will provide updates on:

  • The Industrial Pellet Market in the United Kingdom and impact of a conservative majority in Parliament on this vital market.
  • The policy situation in the Netherlands and what it means for this promising market.
  • Heating markets throughout Europe and the momentum of appliance sales throughout the region.
  • The state-of-play in South Korea and what it means for North American producers.
  • When other Asian markets like Japan and China might begin to emerge.
  • Appliance sales and efforts to grow heating markets in North America.
  • Opportunities and challenges producers face in the retail market in the United States.
  • Non-energy markets for wood pellets (absorbents, animal bedding and barbecues)
  • Global pellet production trends including new players like Vietnam, Russia and Eastern Europe.

"The Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit is a great addition to the 2016 International Biomass Conference & Expo," says Tim Portz, vice president of content at BBI International. "The Global Pellet Market Outlook Summit allows us to spend an entire day providing producers with an in-depth look at market forecasts while preserving the Pellets & Densified Biomass track at the International Biomass Conference & Expo for the production, innovation and best practice content producers have come to expect from the event."

The event will also include a trade show and sponsorship opportunities. "This is an excellent opportunity for companies to network with key decision-makers in the pellet industry," says John Nelson, sales and marketing director at BBI International. "Because this event is co-located with the 2016 International Biomass Conference & Expo, we expect many key players from all aspects of the pellet industry to be in attendance."
