MarketsandMarkets projects that the global small-scale LNG market will grow from USD 46.4 billion in 2022 to USD 92.8 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 14.9%, during the forecast period. The global energy landscape is witnessing a significant shift towards cleaner and more sustainable fuel options. In this transition, small-scale LNG (liquefied natural gas) has emerged as a flexible and efficient solution to meet the energy demands of diverse industries and regions. With the increasing focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to cleaner fuels, LNG is gaining popularity as a viable alternative to conventional fossil fuels. Small-scale LNG offers lower emissions, especially when used in transportation and power generation applications, making it an attractive option for industries aiming to reduce their carbon footprint.
The rising demand for LNG from different end-use applications such as heavy-duty vehicles, and industrial & power are propelling the growth of the small-scale LNG market globally. However, factors such as the maritime industry is undergoing a significant shift towards cleaner fuels to comply with stricter environmental regulations. Small-scale LNG plays a pivotal role in this transition, with LNG bunkering becoming increasingly important for ships and vessels.

Linde plc is one of the leading companies in the international gas market. It comprises two divisions, gases and engineering. Linde operates in two main business segments: industrial gases and engineering. The industrial gases operations are structured based on geography and are divided into three reportable segments: Americas, EMEA (Europe/Middle East/Africa), and APAC (Asia/South Pacific). Each segment focuses on delivering industrial gases to customers within its respective region. Additionally, the engineering business represents the fourth reportable segment, operating on a global scale. The engineering division of the company is spread worldwide, with a focus on market segments including natural gas, olefin, hydrogen, air separation, and synthesis gas plants. The small to mid-scale LNG terminals are operated under the engineering division. The Star LNG concept was established for the small-scale liquefaction capacities ranging between 100 and 600 tons per day. Such small-scale liquefaction plants typically consist of LNG storage tanks, liquefaction and natural gas treatment units, and LNG filling station. It has supplied more than 300 cryogenic processing plants to Australia, Norway, Germany, and China. Linde plc has vast experience in design, development, and construction of natural gas processing plants, including small-scale LNG terminals along with storage, import, export, and loading facilities.
