The report gives an all-inclusive account of the major drivers, restraints, trends, and opportunities that the market offers and analyzes the impact of these factors on the growth prospects of the market over the said period.

The global small scale LNG terminals market has significantly benefitted from the rising global consumption of LNG in the past few years. Certain other factors have also indirectly helped the small scale LNG terminals market witness significant growth in the past years. These include the fluctuating prices of crude oil and the rising concerns regarding CO2 emissions from oil-based applications, which have prompted companies to devise better ways of reducing the overall reliance on oil-based fuels. LNG being a cleaner and abundant option, the world’s focus on making it a mainstream fuel hasled to the rapid development of LNG infrastructure across the globe.

The development of small scale LNG terminals, which are the more focused, smaller extraction centers, paves the way for lowering transportation costs – a major expense for LNG producers at present and one of the major challenges for the LNG industry. Massive LNG production terminals, similar to conventional oil rigs in the oil production industry, produce natural gas that needs to be transported from remote locations to urban centers for further distribution. Making production terminals smaller brings a drastic difference to the overall LNG distribution cycle, making it a viable choice in line with the global fuel consumption pattern.
