DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hb42tk/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global GTL market to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% over the period 2013-2018.
A GTL is the refinery process of converting natural gas into long chain hydrocarbon products such as GTL diesel and GTL gasoline. Natural gases are converted into liquid fuels either via direct conversion or by using syngas as an intermediate.
One of the key emerging trends in the market is increased investment in the market to improve GTL technology. Many market vendors are investing in different equipment, processes, and technology to enhance the quality of production and reduce the cost of production. Huge investments are being made to integrate various technologies for the production of various quality products such as combining oxygen with natural gas to form syngas.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the growing need to reduce gas flaring from refineries. With increased demand for oil products worldwide, refinery activity has significantly increased resulting in high flaring of gas leading to a shift in focus toward alternative technology such as GTL to produce various liquid fuels.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges confronting the market is the capital-intensive nature of GTL plants. The establishment of a GTL facility requires strong technical expertise and use of advanced technology, which increases the overall cost of these projects.
