Natural Gas Market Research, 2031

The global natural gas market was valued at $300.4 trillion in 2021, and is projected to reach $424.7 trillion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2022 to 2031.

During 2021, Asia, led by China and India have experienced the majority of the world's growth. In these countries, gas has significant policy support. The industrial sector is the primary driver of demand growth in both of those nations, placing a heavy reliance on the rate of recovery of the local and export markets for industrial goods. The majority of new gas production comes from massive conventional projects in the Middle East and the Russian Federation as well as US shale, which pose a significant downside risk due to the current price fall. This further boost the growth of the market in coming years.

Natural gas is a colorless, extremely flammable gaseous hydrocarbon that is mostly composed of methane and ethane. It is also known as methane gas or natural methane gas. It is a kind of petroleum that frequently coexists with crude oil. Electric power, residential, commercial, petrochemical industry, and pharmaceuticals are major consuming end users of natural gas across the globe. The characteristics of natural gas such as clean burning, versatility, affordability, and good efficiency make it unique from other fossil fuels. Natural gas can be utilized in different ways, including for the production of electricity, the running of manufacturing plant, as a feedstock for a wide range of products, for heating and cooling, and as transportation fuel.

Natural Gas Market

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), natural gas consumption is around 87.9 billion cubic feet per day in the U.S. for fiscal year 2022, shimmering more consumption compared to other sectors. It is forecasted that the consumption will decrease. Particularly, in New England, owing to potential natural gas pipeline restrictions, decreased fuel inventories for power generation, and uncertainty over LNG shipments given the constrained global supply conditions during the assessment period.

The natural gas market is driven by rise in demand from residential and commercial sector. It is used for cooling and heating in household. Over one half of the U.S. homes used natural gas, with 12% of the gas being consumed in the U.S. in residential sector. In addition, developing electric power industry in North America region with increase in demand for electricity in U.S. is expected to drive the global natural gas market growth during the forecast period.  Moreover, it is used as a fuel in boilers and furnaces in several manufacturing industries such as chemical, petrochemical, refineries, and others. In a same line, it is a feedstock for petrochemical refineries and vehicle fuel in natural gas vehicles.

However, discontinuous power supply and power outages in rural areas, result in less consumption of power and electricity which can lower the market demand and is anticipated to hamper the growth of the natural gas market during the assessment period. Furthermore, Amidst COVID-19 there is decline in demand of natural gas in 2020 due to disruption in supply chain, halt in production, and restriction on transportation. This factor has slowdown the growth of global in 2020 and since, the market is fully recovered in third quarter of 2022, it is expected to boost the global market growth with a growing CAGR of 3.3% by the end of 2031. On the contrary, rise in investment downstream market such as oil & gas pipelines, import terminals is anticipated to create opportunity for key players that operate in the natural gas market during the forecast period.

The natural gas market analysis is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. Depending on type, the market is segmented into methane, ethane, propane, and other. By application, it is divided into industrial, transportation, electric power, residential, commercial, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

On the contrary, China is anticipated to be a potential market and the fastest growing market in the near future for the industrial sector in Asia-Pacific. The United Nations estimates that the world population has likely surpassed 8.6 billion people because of rapid urbanization, which has significantly increased the size of the industrial sector. For instance, between 1990 and 2022, China's industrial production increased by an average of 11.43 %, with a record high of 35.10% in January 2021 and a record low of -21.10% in January 1990. Thus, growth of industrial sector will directly fuel the natural gas market demand over the forecast period.
