Prime Determinants of Growth

Coal gasification reduces the dependence on natural gas and fossil fuels by offering clean energy sources like hydrogen. In addition, it offers a self-reliant supply of energy for the countries that have abundant reserves of coal. These factors are anticipated to drive the coal gasification market growth during the forecast period. However, the high costs associated with the setting up of coal gasification plant may hamper the coal gasification market growth in the coming period. On the contrary, the advancements IGCC power plants and the increasing investments in coal gasification technologies to offer growth opportunities for expansion of the coal gasification market in the 2023-2032 forecast period.

COVID-19 Scenario

  • The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the growth of the global coal gasification market. The disrupted global supply chains greatly impacted the availability of raw materials necessary for coal gasification technologies.

  • Moreover, travel restrictions designed to prevent virus spread limited the pool of skilled laborers. Thus, industries like coal gasification faced setbacks in ongoing or new projects.

  • The coal gasification market is, however, projected to show steady growth in the future due to the sharp rise in utilization of different forms energy produced from the coal as it is becoming essential for the world to move towards cleaner energy options.

Gasifier: Fluidized Bed Sub-segment Projected to be Highly Dominant During the Forecast Period

The fluidized bed sub-segment accounted for the highest coal gasification market share in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. This is mainly because these gasifiers are widely preferred for coal gasification due to their high reaction rates, heat transfer sulfur capture, efficient mixing, and reduction in the tar formation. Also, fluidized bed gasifiers tend to produce heavy hydrocarbons and low tar compared to other gasification techniques, which is predicted to boost the sub-segment's growth by 2032.

Application: Electricity Generation Sub-segment to Flourish Immensely by 2032

The electricity generation sub-segment generated the highest market share of 30.9% in 2022 and is predicted to continue to dominate in terms of market share by 2032. This is mainly because coal gasification is greatly used for electricity generation through Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC). Besides, the syngas produced via coal gasification contains hydrogen, which can be used for various industrial applications, such as steel processing, chemical processing, power utilities, and fuel cell use.

Region: Asia-Pacific Market to be the Most Dominant by 2032

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the highest share of 53.2% in the global coal gasification market in 2022 and is expected to rise at the highest CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. This is majorly because the countries in the region, such as India, China, Japan, Australia, Indonesia, and South Korea have been actively engaging in several coal gasification projects majorly due to the presence of significant coal reserves.
