Key Segment Analysis

  • The industrial segment is estimated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Natural gas liquids are a major feedstock for petrochemical production, e.g. ethylene and propane. They are used as raw materials for the manufacture of a wide range of chemical and plastic substances, such as ethylene, propylene, or butadiene. Natural gas liquids are used in the manufacture of synthetic rubbers such as polybutadiene for tyre production. In the production of plastics made from foam, they are also blown as blow agents. In addition to this, in small-capacity refrigeration equipment and air conditioning units, especially for mobile and portable applications, propane and isobutene are used as refrigerants. Hence, these factors are expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period.

Geographical Market Analysis 

  • North America is estimated to contribute 45% to the growth of the global market during the forecast period. NGLs are critical feedstock for the petrochemical sector, which, in turn, produces a wide variety of chemicals and plastics. Demand for NGL has been stimulated by the growth of the petrochemicals sector, which is led by a range of industry sectors including automotive, construction, and packaging. In addition, since North America is shifting to cleaner energy sources, NGLs are playing an essential role in the transition. They have a lower carbon intensity than coal and can substitute for power generation and industry processes in order to mitigate the impact of greenhouse gas emissions.
