Global LNG Market Short And Long Term Outlook – Trends, Drivers And Forecasts Of Supply, Demand, Capacity, Trade And Contracts To 2020

LNGReports new report on Global LNG Market Short and Long Term Outlook expects the current supply glut to end in 2014. Further, the report expects global demand- supply balance to stand at 75 million tonnes in 2020. The report also states that the recent Japanese nuclear outage and nuclear phase out by European markets will drive the LNG demand in the short term.

The current surplus supply capacity will end in 2014 according to LNGReports. Driven by Japan, the UK, China, France and South Korea, the global LNG demand increased to 248.5 million tonnes in 2011.

On the other hand, low demand estimates coupled with lack of investment and skilled labor are delaying supply projects globally. In particular, most of the African and Australasian projects have been delayed by one to two years. Overall, LNGReports expects the demand to exceed supply by 75 million tonnes in 2014.

Further, the company expects the global natural gas demand to increase to 4.2 Tcm in 2020, which will drive the scope of LNG industry. Accordingly, 17 new markets will enter the global LNG trade by 2020.
