As reported by the International Energy Agency (IEA), global gas is predicted to rise 1.6% every year, for the next five years, with consumption rising to almost 4,000 billion cubic meters (bcm) by 2022.

China will make up 40% of the global surge, with renewables and coal expanding their share as power generators, and US will account for another 40% of the extra gas production by 2022 as a result of the growth of domestic shale.


The organization affirms the continuous surge of the consumption of gas will be steered by US supplies encouraging growing demand in developing countries, as well as the industry exceeding the power sector for the first time as leading cause of demand growth.


Higher use in the industrial sector will lead to the flourishing of the US domestic gas demand, with more than 50% of the production used for the export of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
