Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “LNG Bunkering Market – by Vessel (Tankers, Container Ships, Bulk & General Cargo Vessels, and Ferries & Offshore Support Vessels), by Product Type (Portable Tanks, Ship-to-Ship, Port-to-Ship, and Truck-to-Ship): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2017 - 2024”. According to the report, global LNG bunkering market was valued at approximately USD 397.70 million in 2017 and is expected to generate revenue of around USD 11899.60 million by the end of 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 59.4% between 2018 and 2024. 

Growing number of vessels using LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) owing to the need for cleaner fuels in compliance with the stringent government regulations in order to reduce chemical emissions and maintain sustainability is the main driver that is boosting the growth of the LNG bunkering market. International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2012, expressed that boats must reduce their sulfur content in fuel from 4.5% to 3.5% in order to reduce air pollution. Different end-users have started replacing the conventional and traditional fuels because of two reasons. First, to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and second factor is the cost-effectiveness. Nowadays, people are substituting natural gas with LNG because it is economical and cheaper. Also, LNG has high combustion effectiveness, it is easy to redeploy and because of its lower volume density, LNG is relatively easier to transport. This has prompted widespread response of LNG across over different enterprises, prompting dispatching of different new LNG plants around the world, thus making an exceedingly favorable market for LNG bunkering.

Such factors are expected to drive the LNG bunkering market growth over the forecast period. 

The LNG bunkering market is segmented on the basis of vessel which includes tankers, container ships, bulk & general cargo vessels, and ferries & offshore support vessels. Ferries and off-shore support vessels segment held major revenue share in 2017. The growth is attributed due to offshore exploration, sea trade, and production activities happening across the globe. This crucial factor will drive the growth of the market.
