On the basis of feedstock, the biomass power generation market is categorized into agriculture and forest residues, woody biomass, urban residues, biogas and energy crops, and landfill gas feedstock. Market estimates show that woody biomass currently holds the largest share of the biomass power generation market in terms of utilization, followed by agriculture and forest residues. Most economies opt for woody biomass as feedstock because it allows them to limit climate change, keep away from fossil fuels, and expand the share of biomass in the total power generation mix.

On the basis of technology, the biomass power generation market is segmented into combustion, anaerobic digestion, co-firing and CHP, gasification, and landfill gas. The combustion segment held the largest share of the biomass power generation market in 2013, in terms of both power generation and installed capacity. However, given that this segment is nearing maturity, it is expected to lose significant market share by the end of the forecast period. Emerging technologies such as co-firing and CHP are anticipated to become one of the most feasible options for biomass power generation by 2022. Co-firing and CHP is increasingly being used as a way to minimize greenhouse gas emissions.
