Global Small Scale LNG Terminals Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Small Scale LNG Terminals are small-scale liquefied natural gas terminals that receive and process natural gas for distribution to local markets. These terminals can play an important role in supplying small and rural communities with clean, affordable energy.

Liquefaction Terminals:

Liquefaction terminals are used for converting liquefied natural gas (LNG) into a liquid that can be easily transported and utilized. The terminal is an essential part of the LNG supply chain as it facilitates in the offloading of cargoes at high temperatures and pressures.

The global Liquefaction Terminals market size was valued at USD 1,867.1 million in 2016.

Regasification Terminals:

Regasification terminals are used for regasification of LNG from small scale terminals to large terminal. It is also known as liquefaction plant or simply regas. The process involves several operations such as compression, liquefaction, fractionation and cooling which are required to be handled with accuracy for efficient operation of the facility.

Application Insights:

Onshore application dominated the global small scale LNG terminals market in 2017, accounting for over 60% of the overall revenue share. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a fuel in on-site power generation and transportation applications.

The growing importance of natural gas as an energy carrier and its usage in various end-use industries are anticipated to boost product demand from onshore facilities significantly. Onshore facilities are primarily used for regasification or liquefaction of natural gas into liquid form before it is transported through pipelines or vessels at seagoing ships or ashore tanks at different locations where there is a requirement for transporting LNG within a country or overseas.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for natural gas in China and India. Asia Pacific accounted for approximately 45% of global LNG trade in 2016, with China and Japan being the largest consumers of LNG globally. Increasing demand from these countries has led to an increase in global supply, which is anticipated to drive industry expansion over the coming years.

North America was estimated as one of the most prominent markets by Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs). SMEs are majorly responsible for natural gas exploration activities owing to their low capital investment requirement and high profit potential onshore U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for natural gas from various end-use industries: The global market for small-scale LNG terminals is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for natural gas from various end-use industries, such as power generation, transportation, and industrial processes.
  • Proliferation of LNG bunkering infrastructure: The growth of the small-scale LNG terminal market is also propelled by the proliferation of LNG bunkering infrastructure across key maritime trade routes. This is mainly due to stringent environmental regulations pertaining to emissions from traditional bunker fuels used in shipping vessels.
  • Stringent emission norms and regulations: Stringent emission norms and regulations are another major factor that is driving the growth of the small-scale LNG terminal market across regions worldwide. These norms are encouraging investments in cleaner fuel technologies such as natural gas, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions considerably when compared with other traditional bunker fuels used in shipping vessels globally.
