    Utilities–Natural Gas–Global market frequently asked questions


    The U.S. accounts for 82% of the North American natural gas output and 23% of the global gas output. However, while the production in 2020 rose by 0.8% over the 2019 numbers, the consumption declined by 1-2%.

    In the US, the major demand for natural gas comes from the industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. However, Beroe’s analysis reveals that natural gas consumption in the commercial and industrial sectors reduced by 3.8% in Q4 2020 compared to Q4 2019 due to adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Similarly, power plants also witnessed a decline in natural gas consumption in Q4 2020.

    Canada is the sixth-largest producer and exporter of natural gas globally. The country’s national demand for natural gas is poised to increase at around 1-2% CAGR during 2019-2022.

    The prominent five natural gas producers in Canada capture over 40% of the overall market, while several other private players occupy the remaining share. For instance, TransCanada Group deals with the transmission of natural gas in the midstream sector. Moreover, the Canadian firm accounts for over half of the total market.

    Increasing demand from the power industries and rising domestic consumption primarily fuel the Australian natural gas market growth. However, the demand from the electricity generation sector will slump over the years ahead due to the growing inclination toward renewables in the fuel mix.

    Beroe’s analysis suggests that the natural gas production in Australia is projected to swell by 18.81% in 2020, with a surge in Queensland and East Coast coal seam gas (CSG) production.
