LNG Market in India to Grow at 21% through 2025

Booming demand from various end user sectors such as power, fertilizers, industrial and city gas distribution to drive demand for LNG in India through 2025

According to TechSci Research report, India LNG Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2025’’, demand for RLNG in India is forecast to increase at a CAGR of 21.6% during 2016-2025, due to increasing LNG terminal projects and cost-effectiveness of the fuel compared to other alternative fuels. Moreover, lack of cross country pipeline for natural gas till 2018, makes LNG a commercially viable fuel for various end user applications in India. Power sector is the leading end user of natural gas in India and consumes nearly one-third of the total natural gas produced in the country. Moreover, government is increasing its focus on gas based power projects due to their high efficiency, low gestation period, lower carbon emissions and requirement for less water and land compared to other fuel based power plants. Various other policies such as Gas Allocation Policy have been implemented to encourage use of gas in different end user segments. Other policies that are expected to have a positive impact on the country’s LNG market include E-bid RLNG that would help smoothen supply of imported spot RLNG to power plants and fertilizer industries.

“Low domestic natural gas production in the country and rising demand for natural gas from key end user segments has widened demand-supply gap for natural gas in the country. However, increasing focus on expansion of gas pipeline infrastructure in the country, rising demand for natural gas from power and industrial sectors and favorable government policies make LNG a commercially viable fuel for various end user applications. As a result, LNG consumption in India is expected to exhibit an upward trend over the next ten years.” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
