Report Description

Compressed Natural Gas Market
Compressed Natural Gas Market


The Compressed Natural Gas Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 9.4% during the forecasted period (2021-2027). This is mainly due to the increasing adoption of strict government regulations regarding CO2 emissions, the rise in government subsidies for compressed natural gas in emerging markets, the recovery of oil prices, and the growing need to decarbonize the transportation sector. In addition, the rise in demand for eco-friendly technology will improve air quality and sustainability, and the prevalence of pro-growth government policies is expected to drive the compressed natural gas market. On the other hand, a shift in the trend toward the development of unconventional sources, a rise in energy demand, as well as advancements in storage tanks and cylinders, will further contribute by creating enormous opportunities that will fuel the expansion of the compressed natural gas (CNG) market in the forecasted period.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Chevron Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, JW Power Company, Indraprastha Gas Limited, Eni, Trillium EnergyTotal Energies, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Phillips 66 Company, EOG Resources, Inc.

Insights Presented in the Report
