New York. US, April 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “virtual pipelines market Information by Fuel Type, Mode of Transport and End-Use, and Region – Forecast till 2030″, The market for virtual pipelines can reach USD 2,678.50 million in value by 2030, with a CAGR of 5.8% from 2022 to 2030.

Virtual Pipelines Market Overview


In place of a physical pipeline, a virtual pipeline transports LNG from a gas source to the delivery point by rail, road, sea, or a combination of one or more of these modes of transportation. A cryogenic vessel is used to transport LNG from its sources, such as an import terminal, a dispensing location, or a liquefaction facility, to the delivery site where it will be consumed. The natural gas is delivered just as it would have via the conventional pipeline thanks to a regasification station, a multipurpose building that incorporates LNG storage, vaporization, and pressure regulation, as well as control systems.

Virtual Pipelines Market Drivers:

The usage of a virtual pipeline should not be viewed as a long-term solution, but rather as a rapid means to deliver natural gas to locations where a conventional pipeline is neither technically or economically possible.

Without access to natural gas, the sector is constrained to producing goods and services through the use of energy sources, and it is unable to keep up with emerging technologies that may be more cost-effective, has lower emissions, be of higher quality, and be more dependable.

The industry/commercial operator can employ natural gas in the local market of any location, which is a cleaner energy source than oil by-products, by creating more competitive goods and services for internal and external rivals, so encouraging their penetration into new markets.

As this pipeline gives the flexibility for a more suitable industrial placement and the prospect of better use of geographic resources at a higher cost-benefit ratio, it consolidates natural gas use and gets the area ready for the use of conventional gas supplies in the future. In this situation, a newly built area might use the virtual-based pipeline system. The market is expanding as a result of this.

Virtual Pipelines Market Restraints:

Solar, wind, and other types of energy have developed tremendously over the world as a result of the rising need for sustainable energy. The capacity for renewable energy is growing, particularly in Europe. Investments in the development of infrastructure and the crude oil sector have decreased as a result of this. The virtual pipelines market growth is anticipated to be hampered by this. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reports that major corporations have reduced their spending in oil infrastructure. Since 2014, there has been a reduction in investment and reserve replacement due to the quick depletion of oil reserves. In addition, the widespread use of natural gas is being hampered by price volatility, which is predicted to have a negative impact on the virtual pipelines market throughout the projected period.

Ask for Customization:

As natural gas is very combustible and needs to be handled and transported carefully, market expansion is anticipated to be hampered. The natural gas qualities that need specific care and insulation might alter due to variations in the typical temperature, which is anticipated to raise total maintenance expenses. Thus, it can prevent market expansion.

Virtual Pipelines Market Segmentation

By Type

The market for virtual pipeline systems is divided into common and unique varieties depending on the type.

By Product

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), liquid natural gas (LNG), compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, diesel, and oils are the many product categories under which the virtual pipeline systems market is divided.

As the most affordable alternative to expensive underground pipelines for delivering natural gas to remote places, CNG is expected to dominate. It is practical for travel up to 250 miles. Different fuels are moved through “virtual pipelines,” including hydrogen and renewable natural gas.

By Container Size

According to container size, the market for virtual pipeline systems is divided into type I, type II, type III, and type IV.

By Mode of Transportation

The market for virtual pipeline systems is divided into intermodal ISO tank containers, tanker rail cars, pipeline transport, reticulated gas systems or piped gas systems, road tankers, and local bobtail tankers based on the mode of transportation.

By Application

Industrial, transportation, commercial, and residential make up the market’s application segment for virtual pipeline systems.

A significant portion is anticipated to come from the transportation sector because of the rising demand for natural gas and renewable energy. Distributors of natural gas, such CNG and LNG stations, make up the transportation sector.
