Gas Compressors Market

The global demand for natural gas is expected to increase by 1.6% per year for the next five years, with consumption reaching almost 4000 billion cubic meters (bcm) by 2022, up from 3630 bcm in 2016. Factors such as the increased use of natural gas across industries such as the chemical, fertilizers, petrochemicals coupled with the increasing trend of replacement of coal with gas for power generation across the developing and developed nations has supplemented the demand for natural gas across the globe. Furthermore, increased consumption of natural gas has supplemented the demand for midstream infrastructure such as LNG liquefaction and regasification terminals, underground gas storage, and associated pipeline across the globe. The usage of high capacity gas compressors is expected to witness a significant growth with the increase of associated natural gas based infrastructure, in a bid to maintain pressure loss and to ensure sufficient transportation of natural gas.

Growing Demand from Power Industry to Drive the Gas Compressors Market

The global investments for natural gas-based power generation witnessed a constant increase in the past decade, driven by environmental policies and energy diversification efforts. Moreover, the US shale revolution has opened up vast reserves of natural gas for consumption, which blends perfectly with the nation’s ambition of power generation from environment friendly fuel. The country has been systematically moving towards gas-based power generation. In 2016, 42% of the operating electricity generating capacity in the United States was accounted by the natural gas-fired generator. Furthermore, an additional 11.2 gigawatts (GW) and 25.4 GW of natural gas-fired generating capacity is scheduled for commissioning in 2017 and 2018, respectively, which is expected to increase demand for gas compressors. Similarly, the phasing out of nuclear power in the European region is also expected to result in increased natural gas consumption in the region, during the forecast period, which in turn, is expected to further supplement the demand for associated infrastructure such as inter-country gas pipelines. Furthermore, developing countries, such as China is gradually moving away from coal-based power generation to gas-based power generation, which, in turn, is expected to supplement the demand for gas compressors during the forecast period.

North America to Witness High Growth Rate

The past three years were challenging for the global oil & gas industry, which recorded a 25% and 26% decline in upstream investment in 2015 and 2016, respectively. However, in 2017, owing to the higher investment in North America unconventional reserves, mainly from the US shale region, the global oil & gas industry saw a significant gain of investment. Moreover, the oil & gas operators in North America are planning to further speed up investments for the recovery of unconventional reserves such as shale and oil sands as oil prices picks up, which, in turn, is expected to supplement the demand for associated infrastructure, such as pipelines and LNG liquefaction terminals in the North American region. Furthermore, countries, such as the United States is aggressively moving away from coal-based power generation to gas-based power generation, which is also expected to supplement the demand for gas compressors in the North America region.

India Set to Witness High Demand

India’s energy consumption is expected to register an annual growth rate of 4.2%, faster than all other major economies in the world. India's share of global energy demand is expected to rise to 11% in 2040 from merely 5% in 2016, with natural gas playing a major role across all fuel types. The government plans to boost the share of natural gas in the country’s primary energy mix to 15% by 2030, up from 6.5% in 2017. Moreover, as part of its energy diversification strategy, the government is actively promoting natural gas-based power generation, along with the development of the oil & gas infrastructure, such as LNG regasification terminals and pipelines. Similarly, the use of natural gas across industries, such as chemical and fertilizers are also increasing, which, in turn, is expected to supplement the demand for gas compressors in India during the forecast period.
