The global LNG storage tanks market size is estimated to be USD 14.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 20.8 billion by 2027, projecting a CAGR of 7.5% between 2022 and 2027. LNG storage tanks are used to store LNG at cryogenic temperatures in the LNG value chain. These tanks are essential for transportation and safe storage of gas. Single containment and full containment are the widely used LNG storage tank types, globally. The increase in demand for LNG and other industrial gases from end-use industries, such as metal processing, healthcare, and marine transport, will drive the demand for LNG storage tanks.
The global trade of LNG has increased for the last few years, setting a record of 516 billion cubic meters in 2021. The increase in LNG trade worldwide is because of higher production at new liquefaction plants in Australia, the US, and Russia. LNG is a clean source of energy; and with increasing environmental regulations, globally, the use of natural gas and LNG as marine fuels is increasing. An increase in the global liquefaction capacity and LNG import has enabled robust growth in LNG consumption.

Global LNG regasification is increasing every year. Japan has the world’s largest LNG regasification capacity, which is 211.4 million metric tons per year. Regasification is the process of converting LNG at -259°F back to natural gas at the atmospheric temperature. Two new regasification terminals were added in the new markets of Bangladesh, and Panama, which started receiving LNG supply in 2018. This, in turn, is responsible for the increase in demand for LNG storage tanks.
The demand for LNG storage tanks is increasing in end-use industries, for instance, metal processing industries, especially in steel industries. Also, LNG is being used as a fuel in heavy-duty vehicles as it is a clean source of energy. An increase in LNG trade is primarily driven by the demand from various industries, such as energy, power, and automotive; and for commercial fuel and power generation, which is expected to boost natural gas exploration and production, thereby boosting the growth of the LNG storage tank market.
Over the past years, LNG storage tanks manufacturers have strengthened their position in the global LNG storage tanks market by adopting expansions, partnerships, agreements, new product/technology launches, joint ventures, contracts, and mergers & acquisitions.
