End User/ Technology
The end users of LNG bunkering are marine vessels which include cruise-ships, ferries, container vessels, dry bulk carriers, offshore support vessels, and other vessels. LNG is supplied to the ship using bunker barges, road tankers, pipelines etc. Higher heating value and lower density of LNG reduces the emission of greenhouse gases. Using LNG as bunker fuel also reduces the operational cost.
Market Dynamics
Shifting trends towards cleaner and greener energy along with strict environmental regulations are driving the growth of the LNG bunkering market. Easy storage and transportation, operational efficiency, technological advancement, safety and reliability, and favorable Govt. policies are also helping in the development of the market.
Market Segments
The LNG bunkering market can be segmented based on product and end users. Based on the product the market can be broadly subdivided into four parts-truck to ship, port to ship, and ship to ship, and portable tanks. The ship to ship market is expected to grow at the highest rate in the forecasted period on account of its high capacity and location flexibility. Cruise- ships, ferries, container vessels, dry bulk carriers, tanker fleet, and offshore support vessels are some of the primary segments based on end users. Offshore support vessels account for the largest market share in this category.
