Natural Gas Engine Oils: Global Market Analysis and Opportunities

Base Year: 2018
Published May 2019
Regional Coverage: Global

Global natural gas consumption is projected to grow in all sectors due to overall economic growth, increased availability and production, and a switch from coal to natural gas, but offset by the increasing share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix. While natural gas consumption will grow globally, growth will be particularly strong in the United States, China, and Southeast Asia. Improving gas engine technology and increase in natural gas consumption will drive growth in natural gas engine oils (NGEOs). This report identifies the market opportunities and challenges for NGEOs globally and in key country-markets in non-transport applications.

This report helps subscribers to:

  • Understand the emerging natural gas market in terms of supply growth, applications, consumption, and trade
  • Understand the competition between gas engines and gas turbines and the growth in natural gas engine installations across the regions and applications.
  • Understand the market for NGEOs, globally and in select countries, in non-transport applications
  • Identify and evaluate opportunities and challenges in the NGEO market
