LNG Bunkering Market: Overview

Natural gas is a combination of few gases and has no color; however, it is generally made from methane with an average composition of 70 to 99% by mass, depends upon the composure. Different constituents generally found in flammable gas are ethane, propane, and butane. Natural gas is one of the cleanest consuming fuel accessible today with insignificant amount of sulfur or fiery debris content. When utilized in a motor, it emits low levels of nitrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide. Bunkering is a procedure to refuel the marine vessels. Bunkering is done through pipelines associated with a terminal or direct exchange from trucks or ships. Easy transportation and capacity of fluid natural gas make its adoption feasible. Conversion of natural gas into the fluid state at –161°C is advantageous for simple transport and delivering. High combustion of natural gas in lower density results in the reduction of emissions of carbon dioxide, which is a harmful greenhouse gas. In comparison to marine gas, natural gas is cost-effective and economical in nature.

LNG Bunkering Market: Growth Drivers

LNG bunkering is experiencing the highest growth rate in developed as well as developing countries. Escalating number of vessels using LNG owing to the need for cleaner fuels in compliance with the stringent government regulations in order to reduce air pollution and maintain sustainability is the main driver that is boosting the growth of the market. This particular factor is driving the development of the LNG bunkering market. The regulatory organization the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2012, expressed that boats must reduce their sulfur content in fuel from 4.5% to 3.5 Different end-users are substituting and replacing the conventional and traditional fuels because of the cost effectiveness, for example, natural gas with LNG, given its noteworthy cost advantage over the previous. LNG generally has lower volume than traditional flammable gases, and because of this attribute, it makes LNG safe and easier to transport. This has prompted widespread usage of LNG across different enterprises thus making it extremely favorable for the market to grow. Moreover, formulating rules and standards are driving structural growth in the development of LNG as a shipping fuel. These regulations are implemented through the IMO's for the prevention of pollution from ships, yachts, and boats. Although these motors have their own prerequisites and fuel requirements, certain regions have likewise been assigned with stricter emission limits. Other than air quality measure, the IMO is additionally introducing devices to monitor, screen, and substantially reduce GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions from ships.
