Small-Scale LNG Market Insights
The global small-scale LNG market is estimated to witness a high CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2026). The gas is cooled at -1600C to convert it into an odorless, colorless liquid, that can be again re-gasified at end use destination. The strict regulations against climate change along with rising concern relating to cleaner and sustainable source of energy are driving the market growth for small scale LNG. The depleting fossil resources across the globe is also driving the market growth. Growing demand for electricity production due to increasing industrialization, rising household requirement, and increase in inclination towards greener and cleaner fuel is also propelling the market growth. However, the high cost of the supply chain, less number of terminal infrastructures are likely to hamper the market growth.
Small-Scale LNG Market Size: By Type
On the basis of type, the market is segmented into liquefaction, and regasification. The liquefaction segment is estimated to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The increase in demand for LNG, and requirement of liquefaction before it can be transported from one port to another due to the rising export of LNG drives the market growth.
Small-Scale LNG Market Size: By Application
On the basis of application, the market is segmented into Heavy-Duty Vehicles, Industrial & Power, and Marine Transport. Heavy-duty vehicles segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. The increasing use of LNG as fuel in heavy-duty vehicles, especially in China and European countries drives the growth of the market.
Small-Scale LNG Market Size: By Region
