The industrial sector is predicted to dominate the market on the basis of demand for LNG.Numerous industries, namely fertilizers, chemicals, and steel, use high amounts of LNG in the form of operational fuel. Distillate fuels are consumed in huge amounts by industrial processes. Due to a rise in demand for electricity and rising awareness on global warming, LNG's demand in the electric power sector is increasing. LNG's usage for power generation is much more environment-friendly and economical as compared to traditional fossil fuels such as diesel and coal, which is leading to higher demand.
