Report Description

Coal Gasification Market
Coal Gasification Market

Global Coal Gasification Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 5% during the forecast period. Coal gasification is the process in which coal is partially oxidized with oxygen, air, carbon dioxide, and/or steam to form fuel gas. Additionally, coal gasification is a series of molecular chemical events that result in syngas that predominantly consists of a mixture of carbon dioxide, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane, and water vapor. This syngas is produced by complex hydrocarbons and lower energy sources. Recent years have seen a considerable increase in the demand for coal gasification as a result of the rising demand for syngas in the production of fuels, fertilizers, and synthetic and solvent materials. Additionally, it is expected that the need for coking coal in the steel industry will rise as a result of the manufacture of steel and the use of syngas as a feedstock for chemicals.

General Electric Company, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Shell Plc., Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, SEDIN Engineering Co. Ltd., KBR Inc., Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., ANDRITZ, Air Liquide, and Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst gasifiers, fluidized bed category to witness significant market growth during the forecast period”

Based on the gasifier, the market is segmented into the fluidized bed, fixed bed, and entrained flow. The fluidized bed segment is expected to register significant market growth during the forecast period owing to the higher efficiency during the heat exchange. The fluidized bed segment’s improved temperature control is also a result of the turbulent gas flow and quick circulation. The fluidized bed gasifier also has other considerable advantages, such as a high heat transfer rate and load flexibility, fuel flexibility, and a low requirement for oxidants and steam and is expected to support the market’s potential development.

“Amongst feedstock, the coal segment to hold a significant CAGR in the market in 2020”

Based on the feedstock, the market is bifurcated into petroleum, natural gas, coal, and waste/biomass. The coal segment is expected to witness significant CAGR during the forecast period due to the lower price and innovative technological advancements such as the thermochemical process which convert the coal into valuable gases without the need for mining. Furthermore, underground coal mining, which can collect materials from deep depths below the earth, is expected to promote growth over the course of the forecast period.

“Asia-Pacific to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, Asia-Pacific held a significant share of the global coal gasification market. This is mainly due to the increasing demand for energy and the increasing adoption of coal gasification for energy generation in the region. Also, the presence of large coal reserves across the region is expected to propel growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the GSI Coal Inventory 2020, India has approximately 340,000 million tons of coal resources including proved, indicated, and inferred. Additionally, the government support for coal mining and allowance of the FDI will support the exploration and production activities of the coal and subsequently provides lucrative opportunities for coal gasification. Furthermore, technological advancements such as the development of coal to hydrogen production technology and increasing research & development activities in the continent will support the expansion of the existing and new markets.
