The small scale LNG plants are set up in the areas where there is a moderate demand for LNG. It is uneconomical to run large LNG liquefaction plants in places having low to moderate demand on account of a longer time period to meet break even. Capital and operational expenditure required to run a small scale plant are significantly lower compared to large scale plant. It takes lesser time to set up a small scale LNG plant.

End User/ Technology

The small scale LNG market has its application in power, transportation, utilities and marine industry. The end users of small scale LNG market include heavy-duty vehicles, electric power generating plants, marine transportation etc. Natural gas is converted to LNG for ease of transportation to the marketplace. Over the seas where laying pipelines is technically not feasible and uneconomical natural gas is converted to LNG for transportation. LNG is cost efficient in case of long distance marine transport.

Market Dynamics

Increasing demand for power generation from remote areas is one of the major factors driving the growth of the small scale LNG market. Shifting trend towards cleaner energy to reduce carbon emission in the environment, favorable govt policies and reduction in the production cost, growing demand for downstream application are heavily influencing the market to grow. The investors are finding it lucrative to invest in small scale LNG market due to its smaller break-even period.

Market Segments

The small scale LNG market can be segmented based on type (liquefaction terminal, regasification terminal), storage tank (pressurized, atmospheric, floating storage), supply mode (shipment, trucks, pipelines etc.) and application (heavy-duty vehicles, electric power generation, marine transport and others).

Regional/Geographic Analysis

The small scale LNG market can be regionally segmented into five parts Europe, North America, South America, the Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific is the current market leader followed by Europe.
