LNG Bunkering Market Value and Growth Analysis (2021-2026)

The global LNG bunkering market is predicted to grow from USD 12.8 billion in 2021 to USD 17.1 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 7.4% over the foreseen period. United Nations regulations on the sulfur content of marine fuels and the growing maritime industry are some of the key drivers in the LNG Bunkering market.

New LNG projects around the world have also boosted the market. Natural gas is a combination of a few gases and is colorless; however, it is generally made of methane with an average composition of 70-99% by mass, depending on the calm. The different constituents generally present inflammable gases are ethane, propane, and butane. Natural gas is one of the cleanest fuels available today with a negligible amount of sulfur or burning debris. When employed in an engine, it emits low levels of nitrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide. Refueling is a procedure for refueling ships. The supply of fuel is carried out through pipelines associated with a terminal or direct exchange of trucks or ships.LNG has become an alternative fuel for maritime transport and has been highly adopted by shipping companies, due to strict regulations and respect for the environment. The use of LNG bunker fuel is one of the advantageous solutions to be employed in ferries and other vessels using defined routes. The most widely employed fueling solutions are trucks and terminal supplies. However, these solutions are considered less feasible because trucks deliver small volumes and have a high operating cost. On the other hand, ship fueling is more flexible because it covers multiple locations while offering a lower cost.

LNG Bunkering Market

LNG Bunkering Market Trends:

Developing the world's supply of LNG in ship-to-ship and shore-to-ship fueling is of utmost importance for LNG suppliers to make LNG an alternative to conventional fuel. Therefore, considerable investments are made in port developments to simplify the process of filling LNG on ships.

LNG Bunkering Recent Developments in the industry:

  • Japan's first LNG fueled ship to be launched in 2021. The ship, scheduled for delivery by the end of the year 2021, will be the very first LNG bunkered ship to work in Japan.

  • Singapore's first LNG bunker was launched at the Keppel Nantong shipyard in China. The vessel is under construction for Fuel LNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell Eastern. The ship joins the growing number of LNG bunker ships around the world. At the beginning of 2019, only six bunkering vessels were operational worldwide.

LNG Bunkering Market Drivers

The global LNG bunkering market is predicted to grow at a high expansion rate during the foreseen period due to the escalating call for marine fuel. Additionally, strict environmental regulations established by the government triggered the need for efficient fuel systems that meet environmental standards and regulatory requirements. For example, the transport sector, which is the largest contributor to oil call in many countries around the world, focuses on cost reduction. LNG-powered ships manage to save up to 25% of the total cost of fuel. LNG sourcing is experiencing the highest expansion rate in both developed and developing countries. The increase in the number of ships using LNG due to the need for cleaner fuels in accordance with strict government regulations to reduce air pollution and maintain sustainability is the main engine driving the expansion of the market. This particular factor is the driving force behind the development of the LNG Bunkering market.


The maritime industry is experiencing a downward trend due to reduced offshore oil and gas activity. The low expansion of the offshore oil and gas industry is affecting the call for offshore service vessels, which in turn restricts the expansion of the LNG Bunkering market. Furthermore, factors such as huge capital investments for the development of LNG bunkers and the availability of alternatives to LNG to reduce the sulfur content, that is, with the use of scrubbers, hinder the expansion of the market to some extent.

Opportunities in the LNG Bunkering Market:

Technological advancements and escalated research and development activities for the development of innovative products, due to strict government policies, are predicted to create potential revenue opportunities for players operating in the target market during the foreseen period. The worldwide LNG sourcing market is predicted to experience a very high expansion rate during the foreseen period due to the various planned LNG projects, some of which are completed and some of which are under development. The escalating adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as bunker fuel and technological advancements in ship-to-ship LNG Bunkering are the main trends observed in the LNG fuel supply market. LNG produces less sulfur and greenhouse gas emissions than traditional marine fuels such as heavy fuel oil, marine diesel and marine diesel. LNG Bunkering is the practice of delivering LNG to ships for consumption. Many laws passed by international organizations and governments aim to encourage the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, which in turn supports the expansion of the worldwide LNG Bunkering market.


High transportation costs and the security required for the transportation process are the main factors that can slow the expansion of the worldwide market during the foreseen period. Additionally, the lack of infrastructure to supply LNG to fueling sites is another factor that may hamper the expansion of the target market in the near future.
