Analysts’ Viewpoint on Compressed Natural Gas Market Scenario

The increasing prices of transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel is responsible for the rising demand for low cost, low emissive compressed natural gas. This factor is expected to propel the global compressed natural gas market. In order to minimize carbon emissions across the globe, governments of developing countries are taking initiatives to promote the compressed natural gas or CNG. In addition, incentive-based polices are also being introduced for the rapid adoption of CNG. Rising population, urbanization, growth of the automobile industry, and increasing awareness about carbon emission are some of the factors driving the Asia Pacific compressed natural gas market. However, high initial investment, increase in prices of CNG storage tanks, and limited number of fueling stations are some of the major factors hampering the growth of the global market.

Adoption of Compressed Natural Gas as Transportation Fuel

The rise in the number of CNG powered natural gas vehicles is a major growth driver for the global compressed natural gas market. Compressed natural gas or CNG is obtained through compression of natural gas to less than one percent of the volume it usually occupies at normal environmental conditions. CNG is popularly used as a clean transportation fuel in light duty and heavy-duty vehicles across the globe. The growing applications of CNG is due to lower emissions as compared to gasoline and diesel.

The adoption of CNG as automobile fuel is more likely to create value-grab opportunities for the market players operating on the global compresses natural gas market during the forecast period. The global consumption of CNG directly depends on the number of CNG-powered natural gas vehicles in operation.

Rise in Popularity of Non-associated Gas Sources to Drive Global Market

Of the three primary sources of compressed natural gas: non-associated gas, associated gas, and unconventional gas, the non-associated gas is expected to account for the largest share of the global market during the forecast period. The source for natural gas and CG is assumed to be the same. Some of the factors responsible for the rising adoption of non-associated gas are depleting oil wells and reducing production of crude oil across the globe. Non-associated gas and unconventional gas are expected to be the prominent segments for the CNG production in the upcoming years. The Middle East and Russia are major countries witnessing huge production of compressed natural gas from non-associated gas.
