Liquefaction to dominate the global small-scale LNG market during the forecast period
The small-scale LNG industry has been segmented based on type as liquefaction and regasification. The liquefaction segment accounted for the larger share of the market in 2022. The small-scale LNG industry is experiencing significant growth, and the liquefaction segment has emerged as a dominant force within the market. This dominance can be attributed to the rising demand for LNG exports, which necessitates the liquefaction process before transportation between ports can occur. As a result, there has been a surge in the number of liquefaction terminals established worldwide to cater to this increasing demand. This trend is projected to persist and drive the demand for small-scale LNG in the foreseeable future. With the expansion of liquefaction infrastructure and the growing export opportunities, the small-scale LNG market is poised for substantial growth, providing an impetus to the overall LNG industry.
By application, Heavy-duty vehicles segment to lead the global small-scale LNG market during the forecast period
The market has been segmented based on application into heavy-duty vehicles, marine transport, industrial & power, and others. The heavy-duty vehicles segment has emerged as a key driver in the market for liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel. With the increasing adoption of LNG as an alternative fuel in heavy-duty vehicles, particularly in China and European countries, this segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2022 and is projected to witness substantial growth in the forecast period. LNG offers a viable solution for long-haul LNG-fueled trucks on a global scale. One significant factor contributing to this growth is the variability in LNG density across different saturation pressures and storage temperatures in heavy-duty vehicles. This versatility makes LNG a desirable fuel choice for a wide range of applications, leading to increased demand in the foreseeable future. As the world seeks more sustainable and cleaner energy options, the continued growth of LNG in heavy-duty vehicles showcases its potential to drive positive environmental impact and meet the evolving demands of the transportation sector.
By mode of supply, Trucks segment to lead the global small-scale LNG market during the forecast period
The trucks segment is expected to dominate the small-scale LNG (liquefied natural gas) market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to several key factors. First and foremost, the growing demand for cleaner and more sustainable fuel alternatives in the transportation sector has led to an increased adoption of LNG as a viable option for long-haul trucking. LNG offers significant environmental advantages over conventional fuels, such as reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants. Moreover, the flexibility and mobility of trucks make them well-suited for transporting LNG to various locations, including remote areas that lack pipeline infrastructure. Additionally, advancements in trucking technology, such as improved LNG storage and fueling systems, have made it easier and more efficient to transport and distribute LNG via trucks. These factors, coupled with the expanding LNG infrastructure and a supportive regulatory environment, are expected to drive the growth of the Trucks segment in the small-scale LNG market, making it the leading mode of supply in the industry.
By region, Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest market size in the global small-scale LNG market during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific region is set to dominate the global small-scale LNG industry in the forecast period due to several key factors.
