Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Tank Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The compressed natural gas (CNG) tank market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~6% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to increasing prices of diesel and gasoline fuels, growing usage of CNG across the world, and rising demand for clean fuel on a global level. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the prices of gasoline have increased by 0.876 million dollars per gallon from November 2020 to May 2021. Currently, the value is calculated to be 3.076 dollars per gallon. In addition, low cost of natural gas is expected to fuel the demand for CNG tanks in the upcoming years. Furthermore, strict government policies regarding the adoption of environment-friendly fuels in the transportation sector is also projected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth in the near future.

The market is segmented by tank type into type 1, type 2, type 3, and type 4, out of which, the type 1 segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the compressed natural gas (CNG) tank market on account of the increasing demand for these tanks from developing countries such as India, Brazil, Iran and China. In 2019, more than 307 million cubic meters of CNG was consumed in China. Approximately 6.4 exajoules of the fuel was produced in the country that year. Along with this, type 1 tanks are cheaper than their other counterparts, which is another factor evaluated to drive growth of this market segment in the near future. Additionally, on the basis of material type, the segment for metal is assessed to occupy a significant market share during the forecast period owing to its excellent properties such as high stiffness, superior durability and fatigue resistance.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption Graph

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government-imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.
