The Global Syngas market is estimated to be XX.XX MW Thermal in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.56% to reach XX.XX MW Thermal by 2020. Syngas is a collection of gases including hydrogen, methane and carbon monoxide and is conceptually similar to natural gas; syngas can be combusted in a gas turbine engine to produce electricity. It only has 50% of the energy density of natural gas. As a result of the lower energy density, syngas is mostly suited for use in the production of transportation fuels and other chemical products. Syngas can be utilized as a basic chemical building block for use in the petrochemical and refining industries.

Syngas is produced using various technologies and gasifier types. In the global syngas market report, we have considered the following technologies: Steam Reforming, Partial Oxidation, Auto-thermal Reforming, Combined or Two-step Reforming, and Biomass Gasification; and the following gasifier types: Fixed bed, Entrained flow, and Fluidized bed gasifier. The market has also been segmented on the basis of feedstock used into Coal, Natural gas, Petroleum, Petcoke, and Biomass.

Syngas, in the recent years, has become an integral part of various applications in major industrial and commercial sectors. In the global Syngas market report, we have taken the following major end-user sectors into consideration: Power generation, Chemicals, Liquid fuels, and Gaseous fuels. The chemicals end-user segment accounted for the maximum consumption share in the Global Syngas market in 2015, and has been sub-segmented into Methanol, Ammonia, Oxo chemicals, N-butanol, Hydrogen, and Dimethyl ether.

This market is driven by a number of factors, such as flexibility in feedstock, growing demand for electricity, and stringent environmental regulations. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, primarily the sizeable initial capital investment and funding, which may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.

The market has also been geographically segmented on the basis of consumption. The regional analysis includes Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle-East and Africa. The Asia-Pacific region is the current leader in the world for syngas production, which can be attributed to the high demand and availability of abundant reserves of coal in the region. The region is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~9.35% during the forecast period. The large majority of the operating plants are in China. Multiple plants are also found in India, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan.

The growing utilization of biomass/waste and underground coal gasification technology, will offer numerous opportunities in the growth of the global Syngas market. The market for Synthesis Gas is dominated by large multinationals such as KBR, Inc. and Haldor Topsoe, other key industry participants include Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Chicago Bridge and Iron Co., Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd., etc.
