Syngas & Derivatives Market

Market Leader - Syngas & Derivatives Market

The syngas & derivatives market is estimated at 2,45,557 MWth in 2020 and is projected to reach 4,06,860 MWth by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2020 to 2025. The chemicals segment is estimated to lead the syngas & derivatives market in 2020, owing to increasing demand for derivatives such as methanol, ammonia, and FT synthesis products to manufacture chemical intermediates for use in chemical synthesis and to manufacture fertilizers and petrochemicals. In addition, high demand for chemical intermediaries in the production of hygiene and sanitization and pharmaceutical products due to outbreak of COVID-19 is anticipated to fuel the growth of syngas and its derivatives in the chemical segment. Manufacture of chemicals and fuels was marked as critical infrastructure and as essential goods and services, which led to continuation in the operations and production of syngas derived chemicals, fuel, and electricity to meet the demand across the world. Furthermore, rising environmental concerns due to excess usage of traditional fuels are expected to fuel the growth of the syngas & derivatives market.
