September 21, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 21, 2018--The “LNG Bunkering Market: Global Industry Analysis, Trends, Market Size and Forecasts up to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The report predicts the global LNG bunkering market to grow with a CAGR of 73.6% over the forecast period of 2018-2024. North America and Europe are anticipated to experience fastest growth in the LNG bunkering market.

Stringent government laws to reduce airborne marine emissions that includes pollutants such as sulfur and nitrous oxide along with shifting trends towards clean energy are the major factors driving the growth of the LNG bunkering market.

In addition, LNG fuel has low sulfur content and needs comparatively less processing to meet the sulfur content limits and hence it will require smaller and less expensive modifications compared to conventional marine fuels. For instance, a is regulation passed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 2012, that stated, ships must reduce their sulfur content in fuel from 4.5% to 3.5%.

Moreover, LNG has higher combustion efficiency and it has lower volume as that of a natural gas with relatively cost effective transportation and storage facilities. This in turn has led to widespread adoption of LNG across various industries creating several growth opportunities for the key players in the LNG bunkering market.

However, higher capital investments and poor bunkering infrastructure are the factors, anticipated to restrain the growth of the LNG bunkering market during the forecast period. Furthermore, Security and safety zones around the bunkering operation need to be set up, to reduce the risk of damage to property and personnel from the LNG hazards.
