Very Large Gas Carrier Market

Very Large Gas Carrier Market

The surging export of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from the U.S. due to burgeoning shale gas production is a key factor driving the recent evolution of the very large gas carrier (VLGC) market. In a report penned by Transparency Market Research (TMR), titled “Very Large Gas Carrier Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast 2014–2020”, the rising production of the U.S. shale companies is expected to propel the demand for VLGCs over the forecast period.

The rising demand for LPG and liquefied natural gas (LNG) in several developing economies has bolstered the demand for fully refrigerated tankers, thereby expected to drive the growth of the very large gas carrier market. The research offers comprehensive insights into the key drivers and restraints, major developments in the oil and gas industry, regulatory landscape in major regions, and recent technological advancements in gas carriers.

The growing demand for LPG in a number of countries in Asia Pacific has catalyzed the very large gas carrier market. The widening of the Panama Cana, attributable to the expansion project in 2016 called the Third Set of Locks Project, is a shot in the arm for the players in the VLGC market. The expansion led to reduced travel time for LNG carriers from the U.S. to many Asian nations, paving the way for the increased transportation of LNG through VLGCs. The impact is especially significant for major LNG importers in the northern Asia such as for South Korea, China, Taiwan, and Japan. This is a crucial factor accentuating the very large gas carrier market.

The pressing need for reducing logistics cost and achieving operational improvements in LPG transportation has led to major technological advancements in fully refrigerated containers used as very large gas carriers. The rising number of carrier building activities is also expected to favorably impact the market.
