Global Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Market to Reach US$ 29.2 Billion by 2032, Stimulated by Increasing Consumption of Electricity

April 13, 2023 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Market Report by Type (CBM Wells, Coal Mines), Technology (Horizontal Drilling, Hydraulic Fracturing, CO2 Sequestration), Application (Power Generation, Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Transportation), and Region 2024-2032," the global coal bed methane (CBM) market size reached US$ 19.8 Billion in 2023. Coal bed methane (CBM) is a natural gas found within coal beds and formed during the process of coalification, which is considered an unconventional source of natural gas. It is an important energy source in regions with abundant coal deposits. It is a relatively clean-burning fossil fuel as compared to other fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, which emit high levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants on burning. As a result, CBM finds application in power generation, residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation across the globe. 

Global Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Market Trends:

At present, the growing global population and surging need of electricity represent one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for CBM. In addition, technological advancements in drilling and production techniques are resulting in easier and more cost-effective extraction of CBM from coal seams. Moreover, governments of various countries are undertaking favorable initiatives and subsidies to encourage the exploration of CBM resources. They are also focusing on raising the technical capacity of the mining sector and expanding gas pipeline infrastructure which is strengthening the growth of the market worldwide. Apart from this, the increasing emphasis of governing agencies on using CBM as a feedstock for preparing fertilizers as compared to naphtha, fuel oil, and coal, is offering lucrative growth opportunities to manufacturers operating worldwide. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 29.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.3% during 2024-2032.
