This study of the markets for gasifiers recognizes that the various market segments involve different operational characteristics, economics and feedstocks. The financing arrangements for gasification systems are different among municipal, utility, industrial, gas and oil, and low–level economies.

Gasification provides a venue to power generation using carbon fuels without exposing project developers to risk from environmental and health concerns. Gasification also empowers users to utilize high carbon, low value fuels (e.g., lignite, sub–bituminous coals, peat) and derive electricity, industrial chemicals, clean fuels, synthetic transportation fuels, and inert re–usable waste.

It also provides a way to deal with trash. All societies with operating economies must deal with garbage, and the bigger the economy, the more garbage generated. It all must go somewhere, for reasons of public health and fiscal responsibility, real estate values, and as a source of raw materials. Besides the energy carrier (syngas) that is produced from organic material in refuse by gasifiers, a major side benefit is a significant reduction in the volume of feedstock waste material, and possible economic value in the solid waste remaining after gasification.

The largest gasifiers for power plants have yet to be the default choice for power plants because of price (unless the price of carbon penalties increases). A number of other applications, such as coal to liquids (CTL – fuel, industrial feedstock), wastes (solid, sludge, industrial waste) waste to energy (WTE), petcoke/refinery residuals, and biomass to energy and liquid (BTE, BTL) are now proven in the field and on the short lists of options when dealing with garbage volume, on–site power from industrial waste, refinery energy and supplies of industrial feedstocks.

This report ( characterizes the state of gasification technologies, the way they serve their most significant applications, and quantifies the number and regional trends in gasifier utilization throughout the globe. The economics and influencing financials, laws and regulations, and feedstocks are investigated, along with technical and operational maturity.

What is revealed is that in some market segments gasification is not ready for prime time, in others the financials don’t work for a number of reasons that are explored, and in others, the use of gasification is compelling, profitable, and inevitable. The discussion also seeks to provide clarity in the confounding situation that some gasifier markets are now viable in some geographic regions, while the same technologies are unlikely to make headway in others.

The bottom line is that gasifiers have become a mainstream product in a broad range of applications that include central power stations, waste treatment, industrial chemicals production, on–site small industrial operations, district cogeneration, residences in rural economically poor areas, and more. They are becoming an essential part of the energy conversion landscape and are already a multi–billion dollar a year diversified industry on a strong growth path globally.

This report identifies, characterizes, describes, and forecasts world markets for gasifiers on global and regional bases. Attention is given to national/state incentives, international agreements, regulatory regimes, and political policies that foster, hinder or neglect (whether benignly or otherwise) the implementation of gasifiers.

Forecasts are provided to estimate the robustness of gasifier markets in their different size ranges, feedstocks, and applications over time, covering the period 2012 through 2017.
Regional forecasts are made as granular as feasible or appropriate, covering the global market in terms of 10 geographic areas with what is perceived to be a commonality of usage patterns, market demand, and geographic proximity. This last factor is taken to indicate an organic proximity that will enable development of a regional market awareness of the availability of gasifiers and a need for their particular attributes as key components in energy, fuel or chemicals production systems.
