About Liquefied Natural Gas Market

The liquefied natural gas market report by Transparency Market Research provides an in-depth analysis of the global liquefied natural gas industry. The report segments the market on the basis of end-users and regions, and also provides forecasts and estimates for each end-user. The report analyzes demand and supply characteristics of the market by providing a detailed forecast and analysis of volume and revenue for the period from 2013 to 2019.

Liquefied natural gas market primarily comprises three end-users: industrial sector, electric power and others. Industrial sector is anticipated to be one of the most dominant sectors in terms of demand for LNG. Various industries such as plastics, fertilizers and chemicals use LNG to run different processes. It is the preferred fuel for industrial sector in many parts of the world due to low carbon intensity and negligible emissions as compared to coal and oil. Many countries have enforced strict regulations to use cleaner fuel and power sources in industries in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Transition from conventional fuels to LNG can help industries save significant capital and reap all the associated economic and environmental benefits. Demand for LNG in the electric power sector is high due to global warming awareness and high demand for electricity. LNG is more economical and environment-friendly than traditional fuels such as coal and diesel. It also holds an added advantage of having a long-term fixed pricing structure. LNG has established itself as a suitable alternative to diesel in the electric power generation market. High calorific value of LNG in comparison to charcoal and hard coal makes it a prominent fuel in the power generation market. Other sectors such as transportation and commercial are also the major consumers of LNG. Rising fuel prices and depleting natural oil and gas reserves are driving the demand for cleaner and green fuels. Conventional fuels such as diesel and petrol emit high amount of COx on combustion. This raises the overall carbon footprint. However, LNG is comparatively cleaner and emits less COx and SOx.
