Small-Scale LNG Market to Grow at 2.5% CAGR by 2027

APAC to Spearhead Small-Scale LNG Market 

Market Analysis 

The global small-scale LNG market is likely to grow at a 2.5% CAGR in the forecast period 2020- 2027, according to the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis. Liquefied natural gas or LNG, put simply, is a natural gas in its liquid form. This gas is cooled at a -1600C for converting it into a colorless, odourless liquid that can be re-gasified at end use destinations. The typical value chain for the LNG comprises gas production and transmission, liquefaction and treatment plant, LNG shipping in ballasts, storage, regasification, receiving terminals, and then to end user. 

Various factors are fuelling the global small-scale LNG market growth. As per the recent MRFR market estimates, such factors include the growing need for small-scale LNG, growing demand in various end use applications like heavy-duty vehicles, industrial, power, marine transport, the high demand for natural gas as a transportation, increasing demand of natural gases in residential, commercial and industrial, rising need for electricity in recent days, growing population, fall in the prices of natural gas, fluctuation in the prices of crude oil caused by excessive production of crude oil, rising inclination towards cleaner and greener and cleaner fuel, low prices of natural gas, growing number of LNG-fuelled fleet, and the energy cost advantage of LNG. 

On the contrary, high-cost production of LNG fluctuations in the prices of crude oil and natural gas may limit the global small-scale LNG market growth over the forecast period.
