According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, The compressed natural gas (CNG) market size was valued at $9.9 billion in 2020, and is estimated to reach $22.3 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a clean-burning alternative fuel made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. It is primarily composed of methane (CH4) and is used as a fuel for vehicles, heating, and industrial processes.

CNG can be used in a variety of vehicles, including cars, buses, and trucks, either as a dedicated fuel or in conjunction with gasoline or diesel in a dual-fuel system. Vehicles that run on CNG typically require modifications to their engines and fuel systems to accommodate the higher pressure and different characteristics of the fuel.

CNG is primarily composed of methane gas, which is extracted from natural gas wells and processed to remove impurities such as water, carbon dioxide, and sulfur. The resulting pure methane gas is then compressed and stored in high-pressure tanks on vehicles.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a type of natural gas that is compressed to a high pressure, typically between 2,900 and 3,600 psi (pounds per square inch), to make it more efficient and economical for use as a transportation fuel. CNG is a clean-burning fuel that produces lower emissions than gasoline or diesel, making it a popular alternative fuel for vehicles.

Depending on the source, the non-associated gas segment garnered the highest market share of about 62.4% in 2020, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the compressed natural gas market forecast period. This is attributed to rise in demand for CNG and emergence of non-associated gas reservoir for CNG production across the globe.

One of the primary benefits of CNG as a transportation fuel is its lower cost compared to gasoline or diesel. CNG is typically cheaper than gasoline or diesel on a per-gallon equivalent basis, and its use can result in significant fuel cost savings over the life of a vehicle. Additionally, CNG is a domestically produced fuel, which can help reduce dependence on imported oil.

According to end user, the light duty vehicles segment garnered the largest share in 2020, in terms of revenue, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3%, owing to rise in demand for light duty vehicles with increase in consumer expenditure across the developing regions, including Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.

Overall, CNG is an alternative fuel with the potential to provide significant environmental and economic benefits, particularly in the transportation sector. However, its widespread adoption depends on the development of a reliable and accessible refueling infrastructure and continued advances in vehicle technology.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants compared to gasoline and diesel, resulting in improved air quality and reduced contributions to climate change.

CNG combustion emits lower levels of harmful pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can have adverse effects on human health and the environment.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) produced from renewable sources such as biogas or landfill gas can further reduce carbon emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.

However, there are also some challenges associated with CNG use. One of the biggest challenges is the need for a robust refueling infrastructure, as CNG refueling stations are not as widespread as gasoline or diesel stations. Additionally, the range of vehicles running on CNG may be limited compared to gasoline or diesel vehicles, requiring more frequent refueling.
