Syngas (synthesis gas) is a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen along with minor amounts of carbon dioxide and methane. It is produced by the process of gasification of feedstock at high temperatures. These feedstocks include coal, natural gas, or other refinery byproducts; the choice of which depends on their availability. Syngas plays an important role in the manufacturing of bulk chemicals, chemical intermediates, solvents, fuels, fertilizers, and electricity among the others.

The value chain of the syngas market includes feedstock suppliers, syngas technology licensors, syngas & derivatives manufacturers, and the end consumers. The feedstock suppliers are the companies that supply coal, natural gas, petroleum byproducts (heavy oils or petcoke), or biomass/waste. The syngas technology licensors include companies such as L’Air Liquide (France), Haldor Topsoe (Denmark), Air Products & Chemicals (U.S.), KBR (U.S.), Siemens (Germany), MHI (Japan), and Foster Wheeler (Switzerland) among several others. The actual syngas and derivatives manufacturers are Methanex (Canada), Shell (The Netherlands), Sasol (South Africa), and several others producing syngas & its derivatives such as methanol, ammonia, liquid fuels, gaseous fuels, and electricity. The end-users are such as a fertilizer industry for ammonia.

Syngas can be used for production of various chemicals such as methanol, ammonia, oxo chemicals, and their individual derivatives such as formaldehyde, urea, butanol, dimethyl ether (DME), and others. Simultaneously, Fisher Tropsch synthesis (FT–synthesis) can be used for the production of hydrocarbon fuels such as diesel and gasoline. Power generation can be achieved through coupling the syngas plant with an IGCC (Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle). Two or more derivatives can also be produced at the same time, which enables polygeneration. Hence, chemicals, fuels, or power can be produced depending upon the requirement as well as changes in the domestic energy markets or global economic conditions.

The major opportunity in the syngas market is removing dependency on conventional natural resources for the production of chemicals and fuels. This can be achieved by the utilization of biomass/waste as potential raw material for syngas production. The use of biomass will not only help in the generation of clean energy, but also in the reduction of wastes, thereby eliminating the need for wastes disposal. Another technology that holds plenty of potential is Underground Coal Gasification (UCG). It is a method for the production of syngas by utilizing stranded coal reserves. These coal reserves are the ones that cannot be commercially mined due to economic reasons or mining feasibility. However, with the advent of UCG, such reserves can now be used commercially.

The syngas and derivatives market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7%, over the next five years to reach 117,400 MW thermal by 2018. Asia, with its thriving economies and rapidly expanding population, is expected to experience the highest consumption from 2013 to 2018.

Production in the global syngas market is anticipated to increase by 8.7% annually to reach 117,400 MW thermal by 2018. Syngas is primarily used for the production of chemical derivatives such as ammonia, methanol, hydrogen, and oxo chemicals. These derivatives are further used for the production of several other derivatives; for example, ammonia for urea and others, and methanol for formaldehyde and others. Similarly, hydrogen is used for refinery operations, production of ammonia, and several other applications. However, syngas is finding an increased usage for the generation of electricity and clean transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and SNG (synthetic natural gas). The main growth driver for this is the adoption of clean coal technology such as IGCC (integrated gasification combined cycle) which enables the production of electricity and fuels with minimum impact on the environment.

The other growth opportunities for syngas market include utilization of stranded gas reserves for GTL (gas to liquid) operations and tapping the underground inaccessible coal reserves for underground coal gasification (UCG) operations. The major restraint in the market is the high capital cost required for these operations. However, with advancement in technology, the effect of this restraint will decrease in future.

SYNGAS & DERIVATIVES MARKET SHARE, BY REGIONS, 2012

Syngas Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

Asia-Pacific has been identified as the largest market in the next five years among all the regional syngas markets. China, due to high demand and availability of abundant reserves of coal, is the current leader in syngas production. High population in the region is resulting in the increased demand for food and energy, which is resulting in an increased demand of ammonia and methanol. The other major market is North America which will grow with the highest rate in the next five years. Syngas usage for the production of electricity will drive the market in this region. The other regions covered are Middle East & Africa, Europe, and South America.

The major syngas derivatives covered are chemicals, liquid fuels, power, and gaseous fuels. Chemical derivatives such as ammonia, methanol, hydrogen, oxo chemicals, n-butanol, and DME (dimethyl ether) have also been covered. The market share for all derivatives has been given with respect to various regions and application in KT (kilotons) and $million.

In the syngas and its derivatives market, the industry comprises of several players which are leaders in their own segments. The players in the market are syngas technology licensors, and the actual syngas & its derivative producers. Shell (The Netherlands) in syngas technology, Methanex (Canada) for methanol, Yara (Norway) for ammonia, and BASF (Germany) for N-butanol are the current market leaders in their respective segments.
