Based on the Application Insights, the market is segmented into transportation fuel, power generation and others
- The power generation application segment accounted for the largest value share of 47.44% in 2021. Growing demand for natural gas also helps in reducing the emission of harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
- Increased usage of this fuel in the mining, industrial and power generation sectors has displayed a significant change over the historic period.
- A decline in the prices, as well as low fuel switching costs, are enhancing the industry growth in the transportation and power generation application.
- Owing to the benefits associated with LNG coupled with the upsurge in the production of rich natural gas in the Northern American region and others have directed sharp attention towards natural gas to be used as a green transportation fuel.
- Diesel and petrol have been the default options for vehicle fuels. However, there has been a shift from traditional fuel to available better choices on the market such as natural gas that give the same performance in terms of power, acceleration, and cruising speed, but with added financial and environmental benefits.
- LNG is typically less expensive than diesel giving lower running costs over the medium to long distances and the lowest total cost of ownership compared to conventional fuels. It also has strong environmental benefits that improve air quality by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
