These high-level analysis provide detailed insights into the business of LNG bunker supply globally. Major drivers, restraints, and opportunities of the LNG bunker fuel market were analyzed in detail and are illustrated in the report through graphs and tables. There are currently numerous drivers of the LNG bunkering industry. One of the most prominent drivers is the enforcement of strict sulfur emission regulation in the Emission Control Areas (ECAs). Shipping companies operating in these areas are slowly switching from conventional fuel to LNG bunker fuel. The status of LNG bunkering infrastructure facilities has also been included in this report to offer a better overview of the evolving LNG bunkering destinations. For this research report, the port infrastructure facilities and upcoming LNG bunkering terminals were analyzed to provide their development status in various regions across the world.

Key end users of LNG bunker fuel were identified as container vessels, tanker fleets, bulk & general cargo vessels, and ferries & offshore support vessels (OSV). Ferries including passenger vessels, and offshore support vessels (OSV) are the major end users of LNG bunker fuel. Several ferries and OSVs operating in Europe have switched from conventional heavy fuel oil to LNG bunker fuel. The LNG bunker fuel market was analyzed across four geographies: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW. The RoW region comprises South & Central America, the Middle East, and Africa. It is observed that in Europe and North America, ship operators are gradually switching from heavy fuel oil to LNG fuel. The strict sulfur emission standards enforced in ECAs in these regions are accountable for this change in fuel preference. Regional data has been provided for each sub-segment of the LNG bunker fuel market. Key market participants in the bunkering business include Gazpromneft Marine Bunker LLC, Bomin Linde LNG GmbH & Co. KG, Gasnor AS, Skangass AS, and Harvey Gulf International Marine LLC. The report provides an overview of these companies, followed by their financial details, business strategy, and recent developments.

The market size for LNG bunkering has been estimated by studying the possible future environmental regulation trends in the market. Detailed research on the sulfur regulations in different regions has been undertaken to estimate and forecast the consumption and investments in the LNG bunkering industry.
