Target Audience(s)
Our target audience is significantly diverse and ranges from thought leadership seekers/market speculators to those looking for an independent intelligence before committing their resources or capital. Our laundry list includes:
  • RLNG Terminal Developers -RLNG terminal developers and operators are the gate keepers of LNG/RLNG in India. New investments are being contemplated and decisions under-progress that require independent assessment of market opportunities and sustainability of demand for LNG.
  • LNG Importers and LNG Suppliers- The report gives a clear direction to the importers and suppliers of LNG in India. India is increasingly looking favorable as a - - LNG supply destination. Hence, it is crucial to fully understand the market realities and strategy to tap the potential.
  • Gas Pipeline Companies- The pipeline companies are crucial connecting agents for the supply of gas. Development of LNG market cannot happen in isolation and required parallel midstream and downstream infrastructure development.
  • Manufacturers -India is a unique market and the stakeholders are increasingly becoming focused on creating the market for LNG rather than sticking to conventional/isolated business interests. New products and solutions are the need of the hour to facilitate LNG market adoption, for example: cryogenic LNG storage, LCNG, LNG by truck, Long-haul LNG buses, CNG home refueling, composite CNG cylinders, etc.
  • Government Agencies/Policy Makers- The report will be vital for the Government and its policy making agencies who have the mandate of achieving the end objective of making the gas market in India more robust and sustainable.
  • Banks/Financing Institutions/ Investors -The report provides an independent analysis of the opportunities and competitive challenges associated with LNG market development, which will be crucial in existing & future valuations and investment decisions.
