Demand From New Importing Countries


The LNG market showed solid growth of 6% p.a. from 2000 to 2014, leading to a tight market with high prices, but has softened since 2014 due to weaker demand and increasing supply. Looking ahead, the oversupplied market should be back in balance by 2023/24. In the long run, global LNG demand is expected to almost double by 2030, with China, India, South Asia and ASEAN countries, accounting for more than 80% of the growth.

Panel Discussion 1- IndoPACIFIC LNG, The Perspective from Suppliers & Traders 


Significant new supply will come online before 2021, mostly from the US Gulf Coast and Australia.

Underlying demand for LNG will struggle to keep pace with new supply additions in the short to medium term. US LNG short run marginal costs will significantly influence global pricing in the midst of the oversupplied market. Contractual preferences of buyers are shifting towards shorter duration, small volumes and de-linkage from oil prices, although oil-linked indexation remains prevalent outside the EU. As the market becomes increasingly complex, several distinct “need-based” buyer segments are emerging. Suppliers and traders need to adapt in order to cope with these fundamental changes.
