Global Syngas Market Analysis

The global syngas market size is anticipated to garner $64,248.6 million in the 2020–2027 period, growing from $42,100 million in 2019 at a noteworthy CAGR of 6.1%.

Market Synopsis

Increasing environmental concerns is one of the key elements for the syngas market growth. 

However, significant capital investment required for the syngas manufacturing facilities, may restrict the market growth.

According to the regional analysis of the syngas market, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 6.2% by generating a revenue of $41,890.1 million throughout the analysis period.

Syngas Overview

Syngas is also known as fuel gas or producer gas which mainly consist of hydrogen (H) and carbon monoxide (CO). Syngas is utilized for the production of methanol which has a crucial role in the manufacturing of acetic acid, formaldehyde, methyl methacrylate, and methyl tertiary-butyl ether. Also, syngas is a prominent platform for the utilization of nonpetroleum carbon resources including shale gas, natural gas, and coal. 

COVID-19 impact on Syngas Market:

The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has been unprecedented on a global scale. Also, the syngas market has witnessed slow growth throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, mainly due to the obstruction in supply chain, causing delays in the production of syngas. Contrary to this, syngas industry players such as Linde plc, a multinational chemical firm with German-American roots, are coming forward with their effective strategy implementation. For example, in May 2020, Linde plc, announced that it has started up a syngas production plant in Geismar, Louisiana. Such expansions may further drive the market in the coming years.

Growing Adoption of Syngas in the Chemical Sector to Upsurge the Market Growth

Significantly growing demand for syngas from the chemical industries worldwide is one of the crucial factors for the global market growth. Syngas is majorly utilized to produce synthetic natural gas (SNG), which plays a key role in the marine, rail, and road transport industries in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Also, crucial use of syngas in the fuel gas engines particularly for power supply, improved stability, and low energy cost, may further boost the demand for syngas.

A Higher Initial Investment May Obstruct the Growth of the Global Syngas Market 

The main reasons that obstruct the market growth majorly include the significant time required to build the syngas operational plant along with high capital investments. Also, unfavorable conditions raised owing to the COVID-19 crisis are also severely affecting the global syngas industry.

The Robust Presence of Key Players and their Strategic Steps May Create Lucrative Opportunities for the Global Syngas Market in the Future 

The syngas industry is projected to grow at a fast pace owing to the presence of prominent players worldwide. The companies such as Linde plc, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., and Haldor Topsoe A/S have been emphasizing mainly on strategies including acquisitions, expansions, and novel product launches in untapped and potential markets. For instance, in May 2018, BPCL (Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited), a government-owned oil and gas corporation, and Air Products Inc., American leading industrial gas provider, officially signed a long-term agreement in order to establish, own, and operate a new syngas manufacturing plant. Such key developments are further expected to create investment opportunities for syngas market in the coming years.

Syngas, also known as synthesis gas, is a blend of components such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen. Syngas is manufactured by gasification of carbon consisting of fuel to a gaseous component with the heating value. Examples of syngas production are steam reforming of coke, waste emissions to energy gasification, and gasification of coal emission. Further, 50% of the energy density of natural gas is present in syngas. It is mainly used as a fuel but cannot burn directly. Apart from this, syngas has several applications such as gas turbine fuel and raw material for liquid fuel & synthetic natural gas. All these applications require syngas cleaning to eradicate contaminants such as mercury, hydrogen halides, sulfur compounds, trace elements, and alkali. Moreover, precise and efficient containment control is necessary for syngas application such as fuel synthesis, coal gasification energy production, and much more.

Forecast Analysis of Syngas Market

The global syngas market is projected to augment in the forthcoming years due to the rise in the demand for syngas in the chemical industries. Furthermore, syngas market is reaching newer heights due to its wide range of benefits in the gas engines such as:

  • Good stability, predictability, and minimum energy costs
  • Independent power supply
  • Efficient electricity and heat supply
  • Works exceptionally well for an electric output range of 100 kW to 30 MW
  • Assures high electrical efficiency as compared to the rest of the power generation technology
  • Low gas pressure
  • A substitute to conventional fuels
  • Reduction in greenhouse gases
  • Generating renewable energy
  • Decrease in transmission losses and economical onsite power production
  • Transformation of problematic waste to good fuel

Due to these benefits, the global syngas market is estimated to upsurge during the forthcoming years. Apart from this, the market is driven by various applications associated with syngas production. It is used for various industries and sectors. Some of the major application areas include:

1. Methanol from syngas is used for –

  • DME (Dimethyl Ether)
  • Acetic acid
  • Formaldehyde
  • Polyolefins

2. Through Fisher Tropsch process syngas is used in

  • Naphthalene
  • Petrol
  • Diesel
  • Wax

3. Synthetic natural gas

4. Hydrogen

Usage of syngas for a range of applications is fueling the growth of the market in the coming years. Also, low energy and stability are added benefits of syngas that are likely to boost the global market in the coming years. Apart from this, a new report published by Research Dive states that the global syngas market is anticipated to augment at a CAGR of 6.1% during the 2020-2027 estimated timeframe. Further, the Asia-Pacific regional market is projected to grow due to a rise in demand for syngas in industries such as chemical, fuel, and electricity.

Latest Developments in the Market

The leading players of the global syngas market are as follows:

  • Methanex Corporation
  • Linde plc
  • Air Liquide S.A.
  • Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.
  • The Chiyoda Corporation
  • Haldor Topsoe A/S
  • Syngas Energy Holdings LLC
  • OQ Chemicals GmbH
  • John Wood Group PLC
  • SynGas Technology, LLC (SGT)

These prominent participants of the market are projected to enhance rapidly due to various strategies applied by them such as mergers of promising companies, novel product launches, collaborations, and research projects. For instance, in April 2021, Air Products, a leader in industrial gases execution and megaproject development, declared that the Kochi Industrial Gas Complex is deploying syngas to the PDPP at Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, Kochi. This is the second supply of the company at BPCL. Furthermore, in May 2020, Linde plc, a German-based multinational chemical company, declared the initiation of a syngas production plant at Geismar, Louisiana. This industrial expansion of the company will aid in the market growth.

Covid-19 Impact on the Market

The global syngas market is witnessing a negative impact during the Covid-19 crisis due to lockdown norms initiated by all government bodies to curb the infection rate. Also, lockdown led to the shutdown of several industries and factories, resulting in disruptions of the demand and supply chain of the market. However, effective strategies such as business expansions outlined by key players are likely to boost the market in the forthcoming years.

Future Scope of the Market

The amount of time required to create a syngas operational plant and heavy capital investments are estimated to hinder the market growth in the coming years. However, the presence of proficient market players is expected to open up several opportunities for the market in the coming years.
