Small Scale LNG Market Outlook – 2027
The liquefied natural gas (LNG) is a type of natural gas that is converted into liquid form by the process of conversion called liquefaction. The liquefied natural gas (LNG) is extensively used, which is a factor expected to drive the demand for small-scale LNG during the forecast period. Natural gas is a clean source of fossil fuel with the lowest emission of pollutants. The energy sector is facing issues owing to strict regulations against climate change, widening supply and demand gap, rising concern relating to cleaner and sustainable sources of energy, and depleting fossil resources. Natural gas is a sustainable energy source and this source faces storage issues as the volume of natural gas is high. The natural gas is converted to liquid form at liquefaction terminals, for ease of transportation and the liquefied gas is again converted to gas at regasification terminals.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
The COVID-19 outbreak has put huge unprecedented stress on economies and society & its impact will be severe and, whilst its duration is uncertain, it is too early to assess that the outcomes will not be good.
The LNG business has been tremendously affected in several ways, with several challenges but some opportunities are also expected to be created.
The shipments have been impacted by vessels being placed into quarantine but this has delayed supply rather than reducing it.
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis
Some of the factors including the rising number of LNG-fueled fleet and the energy cost advantage of LNG are expected to derive the growth of the market over the forecast period. However, limited LNG receiving terminal infrastructure is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, the integration of new technology is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market in the forecast period.
The small-scale LNG market trends are as follows:
The rising number of LNG-fueled fleet
The rising demand for electricity in recent days has augmented the demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG), which has led to higher production of liquefied natural gas (LNG). In addition, several remote areas are devoid of electricity supply and increasing government initiatives about rural electrification have raised the demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in recent years. Moreover, the industrialization and rise in household requirements have increased the demand for electricity production, which is expected to boost the global market for small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The energy cost advantage of LNG
The liquefied natural gas (LNG) is also used for cooking and heating purposes and with the rising population, the growth potential for the small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) market is expected to increase during the forecast period. In addition, reduction in the prices of natural gas and fluctuation in the prices of crude oil caused by excessive production of crude oil is also expected to boost the growth of the small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) market in the forecast period.
