[180 Pages Report] The Liquefied Natural Gas Market size was estimated at USD 125.25 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 133.41 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 8.02% to reach USD 214.97 billion by 2030.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG), cooled to -260 degrees Fahrenheit for non-pressurized storage and easier transport, significantly reduces gas volume and plays a critical role in global energy markets due to its cleaner profile compared to coal and oil. LNG is essential in the global shift to cleaner energy, with applications in power generation, industrial processes, transportation, and residential and commercial heating. Several factors drive the LNG market, including stringent environmental regulations promoting LNG usage, technological advancements in liquefaction and regasification, geopolitical factors influencing energy security, and increasing energy demand from emerging economies. However, challenges such as high initial investments, price volatility, complex regulatory environments, and competition from renewable energy sources may impede market growth. Furthermore, expanding infrastructure in emerging markets, developing small-scale LNG applications for remote areas, and meeting the maritime sector's demand for cleaner fuels support market expansion.
