Demand for LNG to Decrease Amid COVID-19 Pandemic, Market Growth to Hamper in the Upcoming Years

The outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting the businesses of various industries around the world. Almost every country is reporting new cases of infection and significant measures are being adopted to curb the transmission of coronavirus. Oil and petroleum products are mainly used in the transportation sector, power generation plants, and various other applications for industrial purposes. However, a decline in domestic and international travel, business closures, and lockdown measures in many countries have shrunk the demand for natural gas. Hence, this pandemic has hampered the consumer behavior of the oil & gas industry, thereby dramatically impacting the fuel dispenser market growth.

The demand for oil is anticipated to fall by a record of 9.3 million barrels per day (mbd) year-on-year in 2020. As per the International Energy Agency, the demand for the 2nd quarter is expected to be below 23.1 mbd, as compared to last year. Hence, the declining fuel prices along with a halt in the demand for fuel from the transportation sector as a result of coronavirus would obstruct growth. As per a report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) & Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), dry gas production will drop to 88.65 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) in 2020 and 84.02 bcfd in 2021. Thus, the spread of coronavirus poses a threat to the demand for CNG and LNG industry, which would hamper the growth of this market significantly.
