Gas-to-liquids (GTL) includes changing over petroleum gas into top notch fluid fills, which are generally gotten from raw petroleum. At present, the consistently expanding interest for vitality and the developing total populace has required the improvement of interchange vitality sources to facilitate the weight on customary sources. With the rising natural contemplations of ordinary wellsprings of vitality, clean wellsprings of vitality are required for diminished carbon impression.
Gaseous petrol is accessible in bounty and is moderate. Utilizing GTL creation philosophies, nations with plenitude of petroleum gas can utilize them for monetary development to supplant them with generally delivered fluid fills. The utilization of GTL innovation is a secure choice to tackle perfect, bottomless petroleum gas assets and produce astounding petrochemical items and transportation fills in a savvy and ecologically cognizant way.
Change of petroleum gas to fluid energizes is a treatment facility process, wherein gaseous hydrocarbons are changed over into longer-chain hydrocarbons, for example, diesel fuel or gasoline. Methane-rich hydrocarbons are changed over into engineered energizes in three different ways: Fischer-Tropsch process, Syngas to gasoline procedure, and Methanol to Gasoline process. Gas to fluid diesel is better in quality over traditional treatment facility diesel created from raw petroleum. The low-discharge premium evaluation fuel can either be utilized unadulterated or in mixes with conventional diesel.

Global Gas to Liquids Market: Drivers and Restraints
Across the world, the ever-increasing demand for energy, government policies that support the production of clean fuel, and initiatives for the conversion of waste natural gas into liquid fuels are the major factors driving the gas to liquids market. Over the past few years, several big companies have initiated the development of synthetic fuels using gas to liquid technology. As per the World Bank, almost 150 billion cubic meters of freely available natural gas can be transfomed into useful liquid fuels using gas to liquids technologies.
The high cost involved in the development of gas to liquids plants coupled with size constraints of slurry based and fixed reactors are the main restraints to this market. However, with increasing natural gas consumption particularly in countries such as India, Japan, and China the introduction of small sized micro-channel reactors in place of conventional reactors can open opportunities for gas to liquids market.
Global Gas to Liquids Market: Regional Outlook
The global GTL market is analyzed with respect to the regional segments of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. This includes identification of major gas to liquids plants located in the regional segments of the market. At present, only a few GTL plants are operational; however, several large and small scale projects for the development of GTL facilities are underway in parts of the world. At present, the major GTL plants in the Middle East and Africa are located in Qatar, Nigeria, South Africa, and Mozambique, whereas Malaysia is actively involved in GTL operations in Asia Pacific.
Major Companies Mentioned in Report
Some of the key players in the gas to liquids market include Sasol Limited, Chevron Corporation, Compact GTL, Royal Dutch Shell, Primus Green energy, and Linc Energy among others.
