Natural Gas Storage Market 2
Natural Gas Storage Market 2

The global Natural gas storage Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 4% during the forecast period. The storage of gas for future use is an effective way of balancing stable gas supply with volatile gas demand that is often characterized by significant seasonal, daily, and sometimes hourly variations. Natural gas in storage also serves as insurance against any unforeseen accidents, maintenance requirements, equipment failures in the logistics chain, natural disasters, or other occurrences that may affect the production or delivery of natural gas. The production of natural gas fluctuates according to the availability of raw materials, environmental conditions, and other variable factors. Due to this, there has been a need for controlling and maintaining flow in the pipeline, and supply gas when the demand is higher.

Moreover, the marketability of natural gas is increasing, which is estimated to promote natural gas storage for unhindered supply throughout the year. The growing investment in this direction is also estimated to boost market growth. Furthermore, people are becoming more aware of the environmental benefits of using natural gas, which is estimated to fuel market growth.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, underground storage category to witness robust CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on type, the natural gas storage market is bifurcated into above-ground storage and underground storage. The underground storage segment caters substantial share of the market. As exploration and production of natural gas usually take time. Also, the natural gas that reaches its destination is not always used immediately, so it is stored in storage facilities, most likely in underground facilities. Aquifers, salt caverns, and depleted gas reserves are other categories for underground storage. The most typical kind of storage facility is a depleted gas reservoir since it can store natural gas for future use and can remove gas quickly. As they are economically viable, underground storage locations are frequently employed for depleted oil and natural gas reserves.

“Amongst application, residential segment to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on application, the natural gas storage market is classified into residential, commercial, and others. Among these, the residential segment holds a significant share in the market. Natural gas has been a seasonal fuel and demand is usually higher during the winter, partly because it is used for heat in residential settings. In addition, the recent trend toward electricity generation using natural gas as fuel had caused demand to increase during the summer months due to the need for electricity to power air conditioners is escalating the market size of natural gas storage.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

North America is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the increasing exploration and production activities in the region coupled with rising seasonal demand for natural gas. Also, the United States exports an enormous amount of natural gas to Canada and Mexico through a pipeline and is also a net exporter to several other countries. Due to extreme weather conditions, natural gas is broadly used for space heating in residential and commercial buildings which is expected to the growth in natural gas storage in North America.
