Synthetic Natural Gas Market Size Projected to Grow $68.4 Billion by 2029 | MarketsandMarkets™

Chicago, June 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global Synthetic Natural Gas Market size is expected to grow from USD 23.9 billion in 2024 to USD 68.4 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 23.4% according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. Synthetic natural gas (SNG) is an artificially created substitute for natural gas, often made through a process called gasification, which transforms solid or liquid carbon-based materials into a methane-rich gas. SNG, is synthetically derived from various feedstocks including coal, biomass, and renewable energy sources, or municipal solid waste, mirrors natural gas in its properties and utility, suitable for purposes ranging from heating to power generation and transportation.

The global synthetic natural gas market is anticipated to grow at a higher level. There are various drivers responsible for the growth of the market such as government policies and incentives and technological advancements among others. Investments in infrastructure for gasification, methanation, and distribution networks constitute the backbone of the synthetic natural gas (SNG) market. This strategic allocation of resources is pivotal for ensuring the seamless production and widespread adoption of SNG as a viable energy source. Technological advancements enable the creation of more dependable and cost-effective synthetic natural gas technologies, hence propelling market expansion.
