It is determined, that the last years' bioethanol production growth is almost stable. But biodiesel production has been slowing down. Efficiency of biofuels utilisation has been analysed. Biofuels production is most developed in countries which have favourable climate conditions, high developed agriculture, enough agricultural area and government support. General and specific barriers for biofuel usage have been examined. Regions of concentrated alternative fuels use have been revealed. Modern economic factors which influence on a production and applications of alternative fuels have been shown. Basic national features have been revealed.
