Liquefied Natural Gas


Natural gas is the most climate friendly of the fossil fuels releasing less CO2 than oil based products such as diesel.

Natural gas is the world’s third most important energy source after oil and coal. It occurs naturally deep underneath the earth’s crust in many places around the world. Natural gas currently represents a quarter of the global energy supply.

Natural gas is used in industry, in power plants, in district heating and in sea and overland transport. Throughout Europe, natural gas has traditionally been regarded as a form of green energy.

There are many reasons to take an interest in natural gas. It has major advantages over other fossil-based energy sources – not least the fact that natural gas gives off fewer undesirable emissions. But also because natural gas is more efficient and kinder to the environment than the other fossil fuels which are currently used in industry, shipping and overland transport.

Natural gas is converted to LNG by harnessing innovative cryogenic technologies that make it available both for worldwide transport as well as for local markets. This conversion can also contribute to increased use of biogas. The conversion of natural gas into liquid is achieved through refrigeration by cooling natural gas to -162°C.

The resulting condensate is known as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Liquefaction reduces the volume by about 600 times, making it more economical to transport between continents in specially designed LNG carriers. Liquefied natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas in its liquid form. It is the cleanest burning fossil fuel as it produces less emissions and pollutants than either coal or oil.

Liquefied Natural Gas: Highest growing market by cryogenic gases

The LNG cryogenic gas market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. This growth is attributed to increased demand for LNG pertaining to environmental concerns. LNG can be very useful, particularly for the transportation of natural gas, since LNG takes up about 1/600th the volume of gaseous natural gas. The demand for LNG is the highest in Asia-Pacific, making the region a high potential market for cryogenic pumps designed for transportation of LNG.

Positive Displacement: Highest growing market by type

The positive displacement cryogenic pump market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to increasing use of positive displacement pumps in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America. Moreover, positive displacement pumps have constant flow at various viscosities and pressures. This feature is likely to contribute to the growth of the positive displacement cryogenic pumps market.

Asia-Pacific: The largest market for cryogenic pump

The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for cryogenic pumps in 2016, driven largely by developments in growing economies such as China, India and other Southeast Asian countries. These developments are due to growing energy need, focus on renewable generation, and rapid urbanization. Moreover, these regions are being drawn towards tapping eco-friendly fuel sources such as LNG in order to reduce carbon emissions, which is likely to boost the cryogenic pump market in the region.

To provide an in-depth understanding of the competitive landscape, the report includes profiles of some of the leading players in the cryogenic pump market, namely, Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd. (japan), Ebara Corporation (Japan), Flowserve Corporation (U.S.), Fives S.A. (France), and Brooks Automation Inc. (U.S.). These companies have been the most active in terms of strategic developments from January 2012 to February 2016. Most of these market players are present in Asia-Pacific and North America region, and have been actively participating in competitive developments.
