As per this study, the Global Coal To Liquid Market was valued USD XX MN (by revenue) in 2021 and is anticipated to reach USD XX MN by 2027 with a CAGR of XX%.
Coal to liquid is a chemical process of converting coal into liquid fuel (CTL). There are two processes of conversion of CTL, which includes direct liquefaction (DCL), and indirect liquefaction (IDL). DCL method works by dissolving the coal in a solvent at high temperature and pressure whereas the IDL method works by converting coal to gas to form a syngas, which is a mixture of hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide. The residues of both processes are further refined and condensed to produce high-quality ultra-clean products. Liquid coal (CTL) can be a petroleum substitute that further can be used in the transportation industry. It is also used in synthetic waxes, lubricants, and other applications.
The increasing demand for transportation fuel across the globe is stimulating the market growth of coal to liquid market. Moreover, increasing dependency on natural gas and crude oil for the production of transportation fuels is further pushing the market demand. However, the high investment cost of CTL plant and high cost associated with the process of CTL is likely to impede the market growth.
