New players are bolstering the industry, and ensuring the growth of the sector
London 12-01-17 – The total LNG trade reached 244.8 metric tons (MT) in 2015, up 4.7 MT from the previous year. This marks the largest year for LNG trade in the industry’s history, even though Japanese import prices fell drastically between January and December 2015. Despite this, the start of new projects contributed to the buoyancy of the sector and the industry has remained vibrant, continuing to grow. Currently Asia accounts for more than half of global LNG imports, with Japan, South Korea and China leading the way and accounting for just over half of the global market share.
