India LNG market is expected to grow at double digit CAGR until 2030 owing to low price and high availability of LNG gas. Natural gas is a clean fuel when compared with alternative fuels, therefore, its utilization is also increasing in various industries. Even so, the domestic production of LNG is low in the country, therefore, the government implemented e-bid RLNG to support the import of gas to the powerplants. India imports LNG from Australia, Qatar and US, among others. Most of these are imports are based on tie-ups with durations upto 30 years.

Moreover, the 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.

Attribution to the Paris agreement in 2015 and plans for the establishment of new 11 terminals in the next five to six years, the demand for liquefied natural gas rose by 10% in 2018 when compared with the past year, which is anticipated to positively influence the market for liquefied natural gas in India through 2030. 

LNG market in India can be segmented based on source, application and region. Based on application, market can be segmented into fertilizers, power, city gas distribution, petrochemicals, utilities, and manufacturing, among others. 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. In the recent years, share of city gas distribution has been increasing at a rapid pace, as the government implemented gas allocation policy to address the demand for natural gas across various end user industries, classified on the basis of needs as city gas distribution for households, transport, fertilizers sector (urea plant), power plants and industrial sectors.

In terms of regional analysis, market can be segregated into north, south, east and west. West and North regions of India registered the largest consumption of the natural gas which can be attributed to presence of gas pipelines in the regions. 

Major companies operating in the LNG market of India include Petronet LNG Limited, GAIL(India) Limited, Royal Dutch Shell plc, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, H-Energy Private Limited, Total S.A., GSPC LNG Limited, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, JSW Infrastructure, Essar Ports Ltd, among others. Domestic natural gas is supplied from the oil fields present in locations i.e. Hazira, Dahez, Kochi, Mundra and Ennore. Out of these Dahej and Kochi are operated by PLL. In September 2019, PLL also signed 40 years MOU for import of gas from the United States.
