According to The Insight Partners’ research, the global LNG storage tank Market was valued at US$ 8,205.84 million in 2020 and is projected to be worth US$ 14,224.27 million by 2028, growing at 7.9% CAGR during 2021–2028. Rising LNG trade across the globe and presence of large number of market players are the key factors credited for market expansion.
The LNG storage tank can efficiently store LNG at a very low temperature, i.e., -260 F. At present, the US is the largest producer of natural gas across the world. A large volume of LNG is transported through the sea route, where LNG is loaded onto double-hulled ships and the gas is off-loaded to well-insulated storage tanks. Later, it is re-gasified for admission into the pipeline distribution network. Moreover, LNG is shipped in smaller quantities, generally for shorter ocean distances. The LNG in small-scale shipments is commonly transported in same containers used on trucks for international trade, particularly outfitted with cryogenic tanks. It was announced that the Asian requirement for LNG was anticipated to drive the growth of the market in 2021. Therefore, this rise in the LNG trade is driving the growth of the LNG storage tanks market.
