Global Natural Gas Storage Market Highlights over 2022 – 2030

The global natural gas storage market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~10% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing usage of natural gas as an alternative to liquid petroleum gas, along with the growing need to store natural gas. According to the data by International Energy Agency (IEA,) global natural gas production grew by almost 1 trillion cubic meter in the past decade, with an annual growth rate of 2.5%. The production of natural gas fluctuates according to the availability of raw material, environmental conditions, and other variable factors. Due to this, there has been a need for controlling and maintaining flow in the pipeline, and supply gas when the demand is higher. Natural gas is cheaper and more easily available, especially in rural areas, where cattle breeding is practiced prominently. The growing demand for natural gas, backed by the cheaper cost of this gas and fluctuating prices of petroleum products, is estimated to boost the market growth. Moreover, the marketability of natural gas is increasing, which is estimated to promote natural gas storage for unhindered supply throughout the year. The growing investment in this direction is also estimated to boost the market growth. Furthermore, people are becoming more aware towards the environmental benefits of using natural gas, which is estimated to fuel the market growth.

The market is segmented by application into residential, commercial, and others, out of which, the commercial segment is anticipated to hold the larger share in the global natural gas storage market over the forecast period on account of increasing commercialization of natural gas. The companies providing natural gas on a commercial basis require a year-long supply of the gas. However, the production is higher in summers and much lower in winter. Storage of natural gas can solve the issue of supply fluctuation, which is estimated to boost the demand for natural gas storage in commercial sector. 

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.
