DUBLIN, September 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Gas Engine Market by Fuel Type (Natural Gas & Special Gas), Application (Power Generation, Co-generation, & Mechanical Drive), End-User (Utilities, Manufacturing, & Oil & Gas), Power Output, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global gas engine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.12%, from 2017 to 2022, to reach a projected USD 4.76 Billion by 2022

The natural gas segment led the gas engine market, by fuel type, and is used in base load power generation and CHP (combined heat and power) applications. Natural gas fueled gas engines are mainly used for the power generation application by utilities and manufacturing facilities. The gas engines ranging between 5 MW-20 MW mostly utilizes natural gas. The special gas segment is also the fastest growing market due to increased adaptation of biogas and landfill gas in power generation application. Countries around the world are offering subsidies for the biogas and landfill run power plants.
