Market Overview:

The global coal to liquid (CTL) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2018-2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for alternative liquid fuels and rising concerns over environmental pollution. The global CTL market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into synthetic wax, chemical feedstock, lubricants, alternative liquid fuels, and ultra clean diesel. The synthetic wax segment is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to its growing demand in end-use industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. On the basis of application, the market is divided into chemicals sector; wax sector; power generation sector; biofuels sector; and others including marine fuel oil etc. Among these applications sectors, chemicals sector dominates with highest share in terms of revenue contribution followed by Wax Sector in 2017 .Regionally North America accounted for largest revenue share followed by Europe in 2017 .

Global Coal to Liquid (CTL) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Coal to Liquid (CTL) is the conversion of coal into liquid fuels, such as gasoline and diesel. CTL is important because it can help reduce dependence on oil imports.

Synthetic Wax:

Synthetic wax is a man-made product and has no natural occurrence. It is also known as petroleum wax or paraffin wax. Synthetic waxes are manufactured by the process of hydrocarbon polymerization which takes place in the presence of catalysts mainly due to temperature and pressure conditions.

Chemical Feedstock:

Chemical feedstock is the key raw material used in the production of fuels and chemicals. It can be defined as any substance that when added in sufficient quantity to a fuel or chemical process, produces products suitable for use as a source of energy or other commercial purpose. Chemical feedstock includes natural gas, coal, crude oil derivatives (such as naphtha), and others such as propane and hydrogen.

Application Insights:

The chemicals segment led the global coal to liquid market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Increasing demand for chemicals, such as polyurethane and alkyd resins, across end-use industries including coatings & adhesives, construction materials, automotive & transportation is expected to drive growth over the coming years.

Coal conversion plants are being constructed in China and India with an installed capacity of around 4 GW each. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period with additional investments being made by power companies in existing plant capacities or new build projects at domestic facilities.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global CTL market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a share of more than 60% of global coal consumption, which has resulted in high market penetration across economies such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. Growing population coupled with rising living standards have led to increased demand for energy resources resulting in growing coal consumption across Asia Pacific.

China is one of the largest consumers of synthetic fuels globally owing to its massive steel industry that consumes large amounts of petroleum products for fuel purposes along with other applications including chemical feedstock production from shale gas. However, recent developments such as construction boom along with rapid urbanization have led to an increase in energy requirements resulting into increasing imports primarily from Australia and Indonesia among other countries contributing towards growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the transportation sector as a result of stringent emission norms and the growth of electric vehicles
  • Government policies and regulations supporting CTL technology as a cleaner alternative to diesel fuel
  • Rising prices of crude oil and natural gas, making CTL an economically attractive option
  • Growing investments in CTL technology by major energy players
  • Technological advancements that make the production process more efficient and reduce costs
