The North America syngas market is estimated to witness a significant growth, at an estimated CAGR of over 8%, over the forecast period. Feedstock flexibility for syngas production and growing demand for electricity are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
  • High capital investment and funding is likely to hinder the market’s growth.
  • Development of underground coal gasification technology is likely to create opportunities to the market growth in the future.
  • United States is expected to dominate the market and is also expected to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Usage in Power Generation Industry
  • The power industry is the backbone of the industrial sector that supplies essential energy to industrial, commercial, manufacturing, and residential customers.
  • Synthesis gas plays a huge role in power generation, as it is used as an intermediate in creating synthetic natural gas (SNG), which has various application, such as:
  • IGCC plants use gasifiers that convert coal or any other carbon-based materials to syngas, which is used in driving a combined cycle turbine to generate electricity. IGCC plants can achieve efficiencies of 45% and have low emissions, since the fuel is cleaned before it is fired in the gas cycle turbine.
  • Biogas, which is a form of renewable energy, can be obtained through thermochemical gasification of synthetic gas.
  • Gasification and pyrolysis processes produce a combustible synthetic gas that can either be used to produce electricity, or further refined and upgraded for direct generation in a gas turbine or engine.
  • The aforementioned factors have been boosting the demand for syngas in the region, in the recent times.

United States to Dominate the Market
  • United States is the world’s largest and most powerful economy in the world. Secondary units, supporting heavy crude oil processing and production of ultra-low sulfur diesel and gasoline, including thermal cracking (coking), catalytic hydrocracking, and hydro treating, also, registered a significant increase.
  • The thermoelectric power plants in the United States use about 160 billion gallon of water per day, for cooling purposes. There are around 1,740 natural gas-fired power plants, about 511 coal-fired power plants, 99 nuclear power reactors, and 1,098 oil-fired power plants in the United States. This scenario is boosting the demand for syngas in the country.
  • Going forward, there is a dip in the number of oil-fired and coal-fired power plants, but the number of natural gas-fired power plants are projected to increase in the country.
  • With increasing demand from various end-user industries, the market for syngas is also expected to grow during the forecast period.
