Virtual Pipeline Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Application (Residentia & Commercial, Industrial, Transportation) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101758 | Status : Ongoing



The energy demand is growing day by day, and companies are striving to meet the increasing demand for energy. In recent times, natural gas has gained significance as it burns cleaner than conventional fossil fuel such as coal, petrol, diesel, etc. A virtual pipeline provides an opportunity to go beyond their country’s pipeline to supply natural gas. The companies are using a virtual pipeline system to extend their footprints. Virtual pipeline designed for shipments of gas that are transported either overland in holders by rail or road, or by water in maritime or seaside tankers and canal boats. These systems can supply natural gas to businesses, power plants, and private clients that are either unable to gain stake in pipeline development due to geological constraints. Thus, to provide uninterrupted and reliable supply of natural gas in terrain areas or remote location virtual pipeline is best suitable option.       

Virtual pipeline market segmentation is done based on application and geography. Industrial segmented expected to lead the virtual pipeline market due to the expansion of gas-fired power plants.  

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Shifting trend towards cleaner energy resources and rising demand for natual gas

Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint – Risk associated with transportation of flammable gas

The world is facing severe threats of global warming resulting in a shifting trend towards cleaner energy resources, which increased the demand for natural gas. Physical pipelines are not always feasible due to topography or geopolitical events that may drive the virtual pipeline market. The virtual pipeline offers flexibility over the transportation of natural gas and does not require massive installation of physical pipeline that may anticipate the virtual pipeline market.

Natural gas is extremely flammable and requires precautionary measures while handling and transportation, which expected to hinder the growth of the virtual pipeline market. The variation in normal temperature may change the natural gas properties that require special attention and insulation which expected to increase overall maintenance cost. Thus, it may retard the growth of the virtual pipeline market.

Key Players Covered:

Some of the leading companies for the virtual pipeline market are Certarus Ltd., Xpress Natural Gas, Galileo Technologies S.A., CNG Service Limited, Galileo Technologies S.A., Cobey, Inc., NG Advantage LLC, Edge Gathering Virtual Pipeline LLC2 logo, and Wärtsilä, among others.

Regional Analysis:

The global virtual pipeline market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. North America is experiencing robust demand for virtual pipelines owing to increasing demand for natural gas from residential and industrial purposes. The recent shale gas revolution put America on the path to energy independence. Thus, providing an uninterrupted supply of natural gas and reliable transportation virtual pipeline gaining momentum in North America. European Union is committed to cut down its carbon emission, aiming to achieve EU2020 goal.
