Insights on the Carbon Credit Global Market to 2027 - Size, Share, Outlook and Opportunity Analysis -

·4 min read

DUBLIN, August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Carbon Credit Market, By Sector, and by Region - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to's offering.

Carbon credits provide business with a verified method to balance unavoidable carbon footprint by directly supporting projects that are proven to reduce carbon emissions. One Carbon Offset/Credit represents the reduction of greenhouse gases equal to one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) developed a carbon credit proposal to reduce worldwide carbon emissions in a 1997 agreement known as the Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol was signed in Kyoto, Japan, in 1997 by 192 industrialized countries. Countries that ratify the Kyoto Protocol are assigned a maximum limit of CO2 emission levels. Emitting more than the assigned limit will result in a penalty for the violating country in the form of lower emissions limit for the following period. However, if a country wants to emit more greenhouse gases than its allowed limit (without penalty), then it may participate in carbon trading using an Emissions Reduction Purchase Agreement (ERPA).

Market Dynamics

The global carbon credit market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period, owing to the increasing investment in the carbon credit market. At present, the carbon credit market is only limited to companies that are dealing with carbon emissions and its regulations. However, the rapidly growing global carbon credit market is expected to attract funding from various financial institutions such as venture capitals, banks, and others. On the other hand, international non-profit organizations are also investing in the carbon credit market in order to fund and promote scalable climate and environmental actions. For instance, in 2019, The World Bank, an international financial institution, initiated the Climate Change Fund Management Unit, which is responsible for developing new financial instruments for climate-resilient development, and low-carbon and scale-up climate action with the help of private-sector capital. The World Bank is investing around US$ 5 billion in capital for this initiative.

Among sector, forestry segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period. Forests play a vital role in combating climate change. Tropical forests cover about 15 percent of the world's land surface and contain about 25 percent of the carbon on the planet's surface. The loss and degradation of forests accounts for 15 - 20 percent of global carbon emissions. The majority of these emissions are the result of deforestation in the tropics, largely due to conversion of the forest to more lucrative economic activities such as agriculture and mining. The market for forest carbon credits has been significantly growing over the past ten years. Currently, there are three different project types that are eligible to produce carbon offsets; afforestation or reforestation, avoided conversion, and improved forest management (IFM). Improved forest management projects are the most common compliance offsets traded in California's cap and trade program.
