Liquefied natural gas is considered as a fuel for the future due to its efficiency in transport and safety. The rapid development in pipeline infrastructures, favorable government policies, and growing demand for LNG from natural gas are key factors that will drive the adoption of liquefied natural gases. These gases can be stored in liquid form and then used accordingly when there is a rise in demand. Recent times have seen massive growth in liquefied natural gas production, further pushing its demand.

With the rising demand for liquefied natural gas, the demand to control, transport, and handle liquefied natural gas has seen a surge in the demand for equipment. According to the World LNG Report 2020, published by the International Gas Union, the global trade of LNG increased by 13% in 2019 to 354.7 million tons, compared to the previous year. The increasing trade of LNG across various industries propels the growth for the market.

Augmented Utilization of Liquefied Natural Gas in Power Generation is a Vital Trend

LNG -Liquefied Natural Gas is heated from -160°C to 0°C by seawater or other LNG terminal. The exchanged energy is denoted as cold energy. LNG cryogenic in power generation makes use of this cold energy of LNG. This process helps power generation to work smoothly via improvement in the minimum energy of separation, which also includes cryogenic equipment such as pumps. This factor is boosting the demand for cryogenic pumps in several emerging countries. This is due to the growing industrialization and advancement in the several regions.

In addition, increasing power and fuel demand, new rules & regulations, and the modernization of existing supply chains are also a few factors driving the LNG. On the other hand, the appearance of technology such as advanced industrial pumps, which can considerably lower financial risks of projects and mobilize rapidly on demand, is another reason why small-scale LNG projects, in particular, hold great future potential.

For Instance, February 20, 2024, Shell’s latest LNG outlook underestimates barriers to demand growth in Asia. Serious barriers to LNG value chain backing are likely to oblige demand growth in Southeast Asian markets. Moreover, LNG is unlikely to provide base load power production in emerging Asia due to its high costs likened to other energy sources.
