Syngas Market Outlook 2027

Global syngas market size was valued at $43.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $66.5 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2020 to 2027. Synthesis gas, referred to as syngas, is a fuel gas composed mostly of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and a certain amount of carbon dioxide. Syngas is the result of gasification, and the major application of syngas is electricity generation. Syngas serves as an ideal choice for the processing of liquid and gaseous fuel. With rising increase in demand, power generation companies are turning to a number of alternatives, including syngas. Furthermore, rise in environmental issues and implementation of government policies to encourage the use of renewable fuels boost the market growth.

One of the major factors driving the growth of the global syngas market is rise in demand for synthetic gas from the chemical industry. This is attributed to the fact that syngas is used to manufacture synthetic natural gas (SNG), which is used in the rail, marine, and road transport industries in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). Furthermore, advantages associated with syngas such as low energy cost, improved stability, and its use to fuel gas engines for power supply boost its demand globally. In addition, the development of the method of underground coal gasification (UCG), which enables the completion of the process of in-situ gasification that transforms coal into syngas. This, in turn, boosts the demand, as it eliminates the need to transport the feedstock to the gasification plants, resulting in substantial cost advantages. Moreover, increase in environmental awareness and implementation of stringent government restrictions on the use of renewable fuels notably contribute toward the growth of the industry. In addition, syngas is critical in reducing atmospheric waste emissions in landfills and greenhouse gases, which propels the syngas market growth. However, the factors that restrain the market growth include high capital investments and the significant time required to build the operational plant with the installation of hi-tech gasification techniques. On the contrary, the development of underground coal gasification technology is expected to act as an opportunity for the market expansion.
