Global Methane Hydrate market is set to register tremendous growth over the coming years as the global energy demand is projected to increase by 30% through 2023. Additionally, the agile growth in the liquified natural gas (LNG) supplies across the world would further hasten the demand for methane hydrates. Methane hydrates or “flammable ice” are identified as vast reservoirs of natural gas with potential applications in various industries such as transportation, power generation, etc. The cleaner-burning gas from hydrates would escalate the coal-to-gas shift across China and India as exhibited by cheaper shale gas in US. Various nations including US, Canada, Japan, and India have launched vigorous research programs to discover viable technologies for harnessing energy from methane hydrates.

Global Methane Hydrate market is controlled by these major players, namely– PetroChina Company Limited (China), Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (Japan), Statoil ASA (Norway), Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (US), ConocoPhillips Corporation (US), BP P.L.C. (UK), Chevron Corporation (US), etc.

TechSci Research performed both primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci Research sourced a list of leading Methane Hydrate manufacturers across the globe. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the company personnel were also enquired about their key products, manufacturing plant location, prices of products and competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include the manufacturers which could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analyzed the origins, applications, distribution network and regional presence of all major Methane Hydrate manufacturers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for Global Methane Hydrate using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value sales data for standard application (Vehicle, Commercial, Industrial and Others) were recorded and forecast for the future years. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources, secondary sources directories, databases, company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.
