India LNG Market to Grow at a CAGR of over 17% During Forecast Period

Growing demand from various end user industries such as power, fertilizers, industrial and city gas distribution to drive demand for LNG in India through 2030

According to TechSci Research report, India LNG Market By Source, By Application, By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2030”, India LNG market is anticipated to grow at double digit growth rate over the next ten years on account of growing investments in setting up of new LNG terminals and cost effectiveness of natural gas over other fuel alternatives.

Oil & gas is one of the eight core sectors of India and LNG finds majority applications in end user industries such as fertilizers, city gas production (CGD) and power. During FY2018-19, consumption of liquefied natural gas in the country was close to 148 MMSCMD. However, domestic natural gas production in India is low, being close to 90 MMSCMD, therefore, over 50% of the natural gas is imported from several countries like Australia, US and Qatar, among others.

Rising concerns pertaining to the use of cleaner energy is one of the major reasons for the increasing consumption of gas. Additionally, on account of development of transmission and distribution infrastructure, the demand is likely to increase further over the coming years. The government is also focusing on the expansion of gas pipeline as of February 2019 pipeline infrastructure stood at 16,200 km and is in plans to be extended to 27,400 km by 2025.
