Planned LNG Market Outlook and Growth Opportunities in Grooming Regions: Edition 2020-2030

Global planned LNG market was valued at $102.2 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $58.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2020 to 2030. Inclusion of regasification and liquefaction capacity at LNG terminals is known as planned LNG.

The global planned LNG market is witnessing significant growth, owing to increasing demand for LNG. The demand for LNG is increasing in Asia-Pacific, owing to factors such as the presence of emerging economies, growing populations, and rise in gas-fired power requirements and others. This increase in demand for LNG in Asia-Pacific correspondingly increases the regasification capacity at a considerable pace. Some of the countries where the liquefaction capacity is more in Asia-Pacific are Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Moreover, U.S. is increasing its liquefaction capacity at considerable pace. Addition of liquefaction capacity in 2019 helped U.S. to become the third-largest LNG producer in world overtaking Russia, and Malaysia.

Covid-19 Scenario

  • The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has negatively affected the LNG sector. The majority of the LNG regasification projects have stopped their operations during lockdown.
  • These LNG regasification projects are based in countries such as India and China. These regions are among the major demand centers for LNG. However, China is the worst affected nation by coronavirus in Asia which may affect the global market.
  • The prime projects such as Soko Floating and Tangshan development (expansion) that were anticipated to get started in 2020 might get delay because of the global lockdown.
