Global Small Scale LNG Market Research Report: Information by Type (Liquefaction Terminal, Regasification Terminal), Mode of Supply, Application (Utilities, Residential, Industrial, Commercial, Marine, Transportation), and Region – Forecast till 2023

Pune, India – December 3, 2018

Market Scenario

The Global Small-Scale LNG Market is presumed to expand at 2.5% CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023) owing to environmental benefits, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a form of natural gas which is converted into liquid form with the help of liquefaction. It is a clean source of fossil fuel with the lowest emission of pollutants. The gas is cooled at -1600 degree Celsius in order to convert it into a colorless and odorless liquid which can be re-gasified at end-use destination. Small-scale LNG sums up the transportation of LNG from the liquefaction terminal to the re-gasification terminal through ships, tankers, and trucks.

Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Global Market

With the increasing demand for electricity, the demand for LNG has triggered during the review period, which has further resulted in the higher production of LNG. Growing government initiatives regarding rural electrification have spurred the demand for LNG. Moreover, several remote areas are devoid of electricity supply. This is further considered to augment the demand for small-scale LNG in the coming years. Additionally, rapid industrialization and growing household requirement have increased the demand for the production of electricity, which has augmented the market for small-scale LNG across the globe. With the reduction in natural gas prices and fluctuation in the crude oil prices caused due to excessive production of crude oil are contributing to the market growth globally.

On the flip side, LNG production is not cost-effective as it involves substantial amount of technology. Use of high-end technologies further makes the process challenging which impedes the market growth.
