Global Syngas Market & Derivatives (Methanol, Ammonia, Hydrogen, Oxo Chemicals, N-Butanol, DME) Market 2013-2018

DUBLIN, December 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Syngas Market & Derivatives (Methanol, Ammonia, Hydrogen, Oxo Chemicals, N-Butanol, DME) Market 2013-2018" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The global syngas production is anticipated to increase by 8.7% annually to reach 117,400 MW thermal by 2018. Syngas is primarily used for the production of chemical derivatives such as ammonia, methanol, hydrogen, and oxo chemicals. These derivatives are further used for the production of several other derivatives; for example, ammonia for urea and others, and methanol for formaldehyde and others. Similarly, hydrogen is used for refinery operations, production of ammonia, and several other applications. However, syngas is finding an increased usage for the generation of electricity and clean transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and SNG (synthetic natural gas). The main growth driver for this is the adoption of clean coal technology such as IGCC (integrated gasification combined cycle) which enables the production of electricity and fuels with minimum impact on the environment.

The other growth opportunities for the market include utilization of stranded gas reserves for GTL (gas to liquid) operations and tapping the underground inaccessible coal reserves for underground coal gasification (UCG) operations. The major restraint in the market is the high capital cost required for these operations. However, with advancement in technology, the effect of this restraint will decrease in future.
