North America Synthesis Gas (Syngas) Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period, to reach 14,646.29 MW thermal power by 2020. As the region is focusing on IGCC plants, coal is considered to be the major source for syngas production.

In Canada, Long Lake (an integrated oil sands operation) uses gasification to produce hydrogen, steam, and power to upgrade synthetic crude oil extracted from the tar sands. Immense reserves of coal and shale gas will create ample opportunities for syngas production and this in turn will drive North American market in coming years.

The derivatives of syngas have a wide range of applications in chemical intermediates, fertilizers, transportation and water treatment. Methanol, ammonia and hydrogen are some of the most important derivatives of syngas. Ammonia, a Syngas derivative with high nitrogen content, is a major plant nutrient and hence used widely in fertilizer manufacturing industry. Methanol plays a vital role in the production of acetic acid, formaldehyde, dimethyl ether (DME) and various other chemicals. Syngas is also increasingly used for the generation of electricity and clean transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and SNG.

The market for Synthesis Gas is dominated by large multinationals such as BASF and DOW Chemicals. Other key industry participants include CF Industries Holdings Inc., Agrium Inc., ConocoPhillips Co., etc.
