The Brazil road transportation and sustainable fuel market is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR over the forecast period.

In Brazil, transport is responsible for cargo handling, and trucks are the main vehicle for cargo transportation coupled with passenger and public transport vehicles. Brazil has more than 1,720,700 km of roads, which makes Brazil the largest duplicated road network in Latin America. Still, it's considered insufficient for the country's needs. This system of highways is the main mode of transportation for common passenger vehicles.

In Brazil, transport is majorly concentrated on roads. However, using these commercial vehicles to consume combustion engine fuels can be costly and harmful to the environment. Therefore, Brazil is switching to more efficient and eco-friendly fuel options that are sustainable, like biofuels, natural gas, and others. Also, passenger travel through flights is part of Brazil's transport industry, and aviation fuels produce harmful emissions. So, to resolve this issue, sustainable aviation fuels are being developed to reduce those harmful emissions. Therefore, Brazil has a prominent market in transport and sustainable fuels.


The Brazilian market for transportation and sustainable fuel is driven by the rising innovations in the field of sustainable fuel options and rapid growth in the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) as a substitute for combustion engine vehicles for passenger and commercial use. Brazil’s transport industry majorly uses cargo trucks or commercial vehicles for the transport of goods, but now that more efficient and eco-friendly sustainable fuel options are available, people are switching to these options.

Hydrogen fuel-based vehicles are one example of reducing harmful emissions in the environment and they can provide a long-range ride for transportation. Also, the development of sustainable aviation fuel to reduce harmful emissions for flight transportation will be responsible for propelling the market.


  • The rapid rise in innovations for sustainable fuels is predicted to propel the market.

Sustainable fuels is an alternative fuel that reduces emissions from transportation. They can replace or greatly reduce the mining or drilling of fossil fuels from below the earth's surface. Hydrogen fuel is one of many sustainable fuels; they produce electricity using a fuel cell powered by hydrogen rather than drawing electricity from only a battery.

Hydrogen can be used as fuel in a variety of fuel cell electric applications to generate power, emitting only water and heat as byproducts. These more cost-efficient and eco-friendly options contribute to Brazil’s transportation, like the aviation and commercial vehicles industry, and influence them to switch to these sustainable fuels, which is anticipated to propel the market in the forecast period.

  • The growing popularity of EVs is anticipated to grow the market.

The reason for the majority growth in the market of sustainable fuel is because of the rapid growth of the popularity of EVs that use sustainable fuels such as hydrogen fuel which produce less harmful emissions and are more time and cost-efficient. Brazil, which does most of its transportation of goods using cargo trucks, needs a more cost-efficient and eco-friendly option for trade. This is because existing combustion fuel engines are harmful to the environment, and combustion fuel prices are also rising at rapid growth. Governments are taking significant steps to improve overall infrastructure for sustainable fuel stations to refuel EVs. These factors will be driving the market growth in the forecast period.


The majority of transportation in Brazil is done using cargo trucks or commercial vehicles and they need to be refueled during long-distance travel multiple times during the journey. However, there are not sufficient fuel stations for these new sustainable fuels in many underdeveloped regions and low-density populated regions which can be a hindrance during transportation. Furthermore, switching instantly to the new sustainable fuel vehicles can be challenging for many people who have been driving combustion engine vehicles for most of their lives. Therefore, these will be major market restraints during the forecast period.

Products Offered by Key Companies:

  • TotalEnergies: Natural gas is provided by Total Energies, which is a key energy source for the energy transition. It plays a major role in electricity generation owing to its flexibility, and it can meet rapid growth in demand for the electrification uses of natural gas. Natural gas emits only half the amount of greenhouse gas as coal in electricity generation, and replacing coal can achieve a significant amount of emission reductions and can be an eco-friendly option to use.
  • Shell Brasil: Shell V - Power Ethanol is a biofuel by shell that acts instantly to clean and protect engine components. It helps to remove waste accumulated inside the engine that can compromise its proper functioning. It also has a friction reducer that protects and helps the internal parts of the engine so that it can move more smoothly while reducing energy expenditure with additives that protect, clean, and improve engine performance.

Key Developments:

  • In November 2023, Arke Energia, Shell, and Mitsubishi Power opened UTE Marlim Azul in Macae, Rio De Janeiro, with 565 MW of installed power. It is the first to generate electricity from pre-salt-natural-gas. UTE is the pioneer in the generation of electric energy from natural gas in the pre-salt and had an initial investment of US $ 500 million.
