Global LNG Bunkering Market to Grow at a CAGR of 43.96% During 2021-2026, Aided by the Increased Regulations around Sulphur Content in Marine Fuels

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global LNG Bunkering Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market attained a value of around USD 0.41 billion in 2020. It is expected to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of 43.96% between 2021 and 2026 to reach USD 3.65 billion by 2026.

The global LNG bunkering industry is being driven by the strict ordinances controlling the presence of sulphur content in marine fuels, which is mandated to remain below 0.5%. This can be attributed to the increasing issues of air and water pollution being observed across the globe. Moreover, the rising demand for LNG bunkering owing to its beneficial properties, including low CO2 and nitrogen oxide emissions and low sulphur content, is anticipated to propel the market growth in the coming years. In addition, the rising investments in the maritime transportation sector are also estimated to augment the industry growth in the forecast period.

The rising demand for LNG bunkering, owing to the heightened pollution issues across the globe, is leading to promising mergers and collaborations between market players for the development of the LNG bunkering industry worldwide, which is estimated to significantly catalyse the industry growth in the forecast period. For instance, according to a press release issued by the Mitsubishi Corporation, dated February 2019, the company announced the signing of an LNG bunkering agreement between Equinor ASA (NYSE: EQNR), a Norwegian multinational energy group, and Gas4Sea partners, namely, ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation, and NYK. Under this agreement, Equinor is to supply four crude shuttle tankers with LNG  as marine fuel through its planned dual fuel vessels in the Rotterdam port. Furthermore, another leading LNG bunkering vendor, Avenir LNG Limited, in a press release dated November 2019, announced the collaboration with Golar Power Limited (NASDAQ: GLNG) to develop a small-scale LNG market in Brazil. These developments are expected to positively impact the growth of the LNG bunkering industry in the forecast period.
