The Europe syngas market is estimated to witness a significant growth, at an estimated CAGR of over 7%, 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.
  • Germany 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.

Germany to Dominate the Market
  • Germany has minimal domestic oil production, equivalent to around 2% of oil consumption. However, the refining operations in the country is one of the largest in the world.
  • Increasing investments in refineries is another factor, which is estimated to further boost the consumption of syngas in the country.
  • Additionally, Ineos announced plans to invest in two petrochemical plants, with Germany being one of the locations. However, the location is not yet finalized. This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for syngas in the country.
  • Chemical industry in the Europe region is constantly engaged in developing new chemicals. Geographical location and advanced infrastructure are some of the key factors for many players to choose Germany as their base.
  • Increasing power generation in the country is boosting the demand for syngas market. The power generation through natural gas, petroleum gas, hard coal, and lignite, account for a major share of almost 46% in power generation in Germany.
  • However, increasing consumption of renewable energy sources is, in turn, decreasing the thermal power in the country. This, in turn, is expected to hinder the syngas demand in the country during the forecast period.
